When Dougy hopped onto the end table, he quickly noticed something that alarmed him and prompted him to hop back onto his ottoman.
Yes, these grooming torture tools! The seam ripper actually is a sewing tool, but it is handy for cutting through really bad mats. One has to be very careful with it and cut away from the kitty. The dematting comb is Dougy’s least favorite grooming tool because it sometimes pulls too much hair out at a time.
You’ll notice his “horns” are up in the bottom photos because he is alarmed by the grooming tools. Yes, he has some mats on his butt and legs that I’ve tried working away a little at a time, poor kitty! As long as the grooming tools are in sight, Dougy is watching me closely. Very closely!
