Leo here, hi hi fuzzy and non fuzzy friends! I gotta tell you my tail of woe! Actually, my tail is actually fine, it's the rest of me! Oh the Felinty!
Ok, I'll admit that I didn't like those nasty fur balls either, but I certainly never consented to the buzz buzz wand thingie! I am proud to say that it took three of them perform this travesty on me! They had to recruit the Nephew to help hold me down while mom wielded the buzz buzz.
I suppose you must see what they did to realize the full extent of my woe. Prepare yourselves.. if you've never seen a mancat with a mohawk, you're in for a shock!
This is from above. The fluff you see at the top of the picture is my fluffy tail, which, thank ceiling cat, is still fluffy! Not a very even mohawk, right?
I'm giving daddy the back of disrespect, tail up style, for his involvement in the whole episode. Also showing you my left side. See that pinkish circle close to the still long furs on my back? That was a particularly nasty mat and mom had to shave it even closer, you can see my skin!!! Boy did she get a shock seeing that pink ring of skin, pals! See, I'm what they call blue, or a gray kitty, which really means I'm a dilute black cat, so she expected me to have dark skin, probably gray, but nope, it is a mauve-ish pink!
This is my right side. I'm trying to convince dad that we can still be friends, but that he should not try to hold me for this shave thing again. I was not happy with him, but I need to remain on friendly terms because he's the one who picks out my dinner and he knows which ones I prefer. Sometimes you gotta be nice to the ones who open cans...
Here's mom's attempt at mohawk-ing my mohawk... She wanted to see if my remaining furs would stand up. Answer: for a few moments. Those furs, by the way, measure 2 1/2 inches long. I need to show that to my v.e.t who has me listed as a 'short hair' sheesh, I don't think so dude!
Finally, here I am giving mom a bit of the ears of annoyance even though I"m sitting by her. Gotta make sure she knows this is an unacceptable situation that will not be repeated. while still getting scritches, right?
Hope you all are having a better time than me!
I'll let Glitter show off what happened to her on the infamous shave day another time. This was MY tale of woe after all, not hers!
