10Jul20: stripped…!

Yes, it’s Dougy! He had so many mats, he had to be trimmed down really close. It grows back, and the next grooming session (1PM on October 30th) will be a return to a teddy bear cut.

Dougy looks patchy now, but that won’t last. 

Andy had fewer mats, and they weren’t as big mostly. He doesn’t look so rough.

Not much kitty boy under all that Persian coat, eh?! More Andy views here.

I expect the fans of the kitty boys will be upset with this extreme cut, yet it is what needed to be done to get back to routine touch up to restore their teddy bear cuts. I only asked that their tails be left untouched so the kitty boys had some small dignity left! 

Dougy says “buh-bye” in Cattinese, of course, so it sounds more like “meow”.

Turns out the new groomer has a play area where the kitties can be out of the carrier. The former groomer didn’t have one. She also turns out to be the daughter of a woman who used to give the best haircuts, you know, the ones that actually feel good as well as look good.

    • I’m starting to like it, too. Dodi, their new groomer did a nice job of it, especially since she had to deal with serious mats.

    • I look forward to that lengthening hair! I never liked this look for the kitty boys, but circumstances prevailed this time.

    • I will be happy when that hair returns, though they will be back on a regular grooming schedule now. The new groomer has many cat clients and showed me she is good with animals, especially cats.

        • They adjusted quickly. I suspect the lack of hair freed up movement, especially since the worst ones were between their legs. It took me a little time, but I think they look cute. Of course, with the longer hair they go from cute to handsome.

          • They are always adorable, and with long hair they are gorgeous, but I remember when Shabbos the fluffy cat was stripped naked once, and how she used to hide under the blanket until her hair grew back. I thought she was cold and felt so sorry for her! And The Adorables have so much more hair.

          • Andy and Dougy seem unconcerned about the short hair. I think it’s because I: asked that their tails be left untouched.

  1. Your cuties can never lose their dignity. Fur grows back. At least you now have a chance to brush your boys without pulling on their mats. Getting them used to it with a lot of rewards😉

    • It’s the most extreme it will be. Once their hair grows out and the get their next grooming session, we’ll return to a simple teddy bear cut.
