Cat Tails


...second post today...

As requested, a photo!

I took my kitty in for a shave today to rid him of some unwanted matts and a general mess o' fur!

He takes on quite a different look... as you can see!

Now remember, he's 17... been hit by a car several years ago and isn't gettin' 'round so good... but he's home, fed, watered and is feeling much, much better.

Now... it's up to "dad" to keep him clean and matt-free.

On a totally unrelated topic... you can see at the back of the photo the attempt at removing the wallpaper from a couple weeks ago. It is still a work in progress, and if anyone has any tips on removing vinyl wallpaper with a paper backing, I would greatly appreciate some help! It's frightfully slow-going!

Thanks for the picture. 17 is a long time for a kitty. Good for him.

Ok..I understand and completely agree with why you get his hair all cut off, but my goodness he looks silly.
I grew up with Himalayan cats and they had a bad problem with matted fur. Every six months or so it would become too much for me and I would trim off the hair on the back legs. That looked pretty silly too.

We would have our Persian shorn in the last few years of his life. He only lasted until 16 though.

O - I really don't think DJ is a slave to fashion. For several years now he's had absolutely no interest in the opposite sex... partly by design, however. Comfort and practicality win over in one's elder years.

ET - I have to ask, if only for the way you stated it... is it your friend who's now dead or the cat? And if it's in fact your friend, what did she go blind by? Must've been blinded by your light!

Whoa, is that really a cat or you're just joshing. Silly really is the word. 17?, that's older than me (jus' joking), I've never seen a 17 year old cat. You must be taking pretty good car of him.

Aw...i was just getting ready to ask what kind of cat that was. :)

Sarah Elaine said...

He looks sooooo much better! And I bet he's way happier, too.

smiley said...

Hmmm... that's an interesting looking cat, reminds me of shorn sheep which I saw in New Zealand :0)

ipodmomma said...

that's a good sized kitty... :))) but he looks like he's ready for summer...

OK, I have to change the subject a little. Removing wallpaper - UG! It's an awful task!!! I don't have much advice. We've used a steamer before and that helped a little, but it was still pretty tedious.
