Tortie T(h)ursday

Mommy made an appointment at a groomer for me!



She has been brushing me every day and even asked Praline's Mom, Paula, advice on keeping a Persian knot-free, but Mommy neglected to brush my tummy and armpits enough, because suddenly, overnight it seems, I have knots on my tummy! Mommy doesn't want to attempt to cut them out herself, so now I'm going in for a spa day.

She promised me that she would not let them shave me. She knows how self-conscious I was with my last shave, and I know she wants to keep me looking beautiful. I've worked very hard to grow my furs and I don't want to look like this again...




I hope she keeps her promise and I think she will, but I'm still nervous and I can't even look at her!



Praline, can I move in with you? Just by looking at your beautiful fur, your Mom is obviously not negligent like mine!

Bella

Awww Bella ~ we wil cross our paws for yoo too. Purrs.

Catherine said...

I think you look cute with your fur really short ~ but ~ I also understand the importance of fur/hair. I get sad when the hairdresser cuts my hair too short too! Well hopefully it will be just the right length when you are done. But either way, you will still be a beauty! :)

We sure hope that they can go those nasty knots out of you Bella without shaving you. We are sending tons of purrs and lots of hugs to insure that all goes well. We just know they will get those knots out without much trouble. Hope all of you have a fantastic day. Take care.

Bella, we know you will be just gorgeous after your day at the spa!!

Oh Honey,,I am a beautiful Tortie too and mommy has mentioned a spa day for me. My armpits are ok but there are a few knots in my tummy furs which are very curly. Mommy brushes till lay a bitely on her, but it's not always successful.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oh dear Bella - don't let them cut off your beautiful furs - give then big bities and snarl. I get knots in my tummy furs but mum has a small pair of scissors for a quick snip if she can't unravel any knots there.
I am purring for you - luv Hannah x

Kea said...

Bella, we think it'll be okay. We think they'll just get rid of the uncomfortable mats and leave the rest of your gorgeous fur alone.

*Kitty kisses*!

Bella I love how in that photo the stripe on your nose matches the stripe on the pillow!! sooo cool!

I bet they won't shave you Bella, don't worry!!

My mommy is negligent (er lazy) about brushing our Sheltie....she is sooooooo bad about it!

Enjoy your spa day! xoxo

Brian said...

I do hope your spa day turns out purrfectly sweet Bella...shaving wouldn't be a good thing for such beautiful furs!

Cory said...

Bella, we think you looked adorable when you got shaved, even if you hated it.

You are beautiful...and they will get rid of those uncomfy mats for you. I bet you get to keep most of your furs.

Sammy and Andy said...

Bella, Bella, Bella, we have our paws crossed that they won't shave you again. It's winter and much too cold to be shaved!!!!!!

If you're cold after your trimming, come on down and us boys will be more than happy to keep you warm.

Love to all of you.

Cat said...

Bella I'm sure your grooming will go well and there won't be any need to shave you like before. Although, I thought you looked adorable :-)

Random Felines said...

Paws crossed you come back knot free and not naked. :) Mom did this to ^Tigger^ once and he WAS NOT happy. but we are sure those knots don't feel too good either - need to keep on your mom about that.

BeadedTail said...

We hope they give you special treatment at the spa and we know you'll come back with your beautiful furs knot free!

wildcatwoodscats said...

Hope you enjoy your spa day. Our Al gets all matted and hates to be brushed! Sometimes we cut them out but he does get them out himself!

CCL Wendy said...

I don't blame you Bella! Your furs are so beautiful -- I'd want to keep them, too.

Maybe your Mom should invest in a furminator. Dante got one for Christmas and now he doesn't mind it when we comb under his armpits. It takes the knots out very gently.

I love how you match the pillow in that last shot!

Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

Your long, beautiful fur must be hard to keep up with! Sammy-Joe is a short-haired kitty so he doesn't have that problem, but we DOGS feel your pain! We have shaggy fur that is always tangled. We don't like it when Mama brushes us, and we try to walk away calmly when we see her coming with the brush!

Eric and Flynn said...

We hope you enjoy your spa day Bella, and come back looking even more beautiful than when you left.

Morgan said...

My paws are crossed for you too, Bella. And you're beautiful no matter what!

ABBY said...

Oh dear Bella.
We hope your spa day went well.
We are pretty sure that they will not give you a cut like you had before, although you were really cute with it.

Bella you are so beautiful. Beauty is such work! Sigh! Hope the spa is only relaxing.

Angel and Kirby said...

Enjoy your spa day, Bella. It will be all right!

TK and Squashies said...

Oh we wants a spa day too!
We hopes you enjoys it.

meowmeowmans said...

Oh, Bella, we hope your day at the spa is a good one. We know your mommy loves you very much, and are sure she'll be sure to brush your tummy next time! (((Purrs and hugs)))

P.S.- Hi Samson, Delilah, and Sweet Pea!

Sweet Praline said...

Oops, Bella! I missed this yesterday!

Even with all of the combing and brushing that my mom does on me, she finds little knows behind my ears, under my arms and on my belly. I'm not as patient with her anymore, but she still tries to work on them. You can come a live with me anytime!

Sweet Praline said...

I meant to say, "knots", not "knows"

Kat said...

Such a beautiful tortie girl! I just absolutely love her little face!
