Tortie Tuesday

Mommy finally came back late last night from her trip. She was very surprised to see that The Ball Guy had managed to cut off the last of a terrible knot of fur I had on my back!



It is such a relief to me because it was starting to itch terribly and I knew that Mommy was on the verge of bringing me to a groomer to have me shaved! It's bad enough that they cut away some of my fur, but a groomer would have taken so much more.

It was so large and in the center of my back so there was something I've wanted to do for a long time but couldn't do comfortably with that big tangle of fur - sleep on my back!



Ahhh yes! This is the life!

P.S Mommy says that because she's been out of town and not near a computer until last night, she hasn't had time to help us visit our friends. She took today off so she'll help us catch up on our visits.

We know you must feel better with that knot of fur gone. We've heard it feels like someone is always pulling your fur - ouch!

We're glad your Mom is home from her trip.

Knots in your furs must be No Good. We have short furs so we don't get knots but we'll purr for you to grow your furs back.

Glad that your mom is back at home, it never is fun when they are away.
I also am happy to hear that you can now sleep on your back. And even better you didn't have to go to the groomer and get shaved.

Ah the price of beauty. Knotted fur. A fluffy kitty in our neighbourhood was completely shaven some time a good, but her head. Horrible sight. But she's okay and beautiful again now.

I'm happy for you Deli! First of all, because your mama is back, and second of all because Ball Guy was able to get that nasty knot out of your furs! You must have been very still to let him do that. What a good girl you are!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

That is great that your mom is back and also that she doesn't need to take you to the groomer! I am impressed that the ball guy got your nasty mat out and happy you won't have to be shaved!
