Tortie Tuesday

It has been almost a year since I moved into this house to become a Monkey and I'm very happy to report that I'm mostly satisfied with my forever home.



I say mostly because there are a few things I'd change...

I heard the humans discussing how naughty I had become.  I couldn't believe they were calling ME naughty!  I'm a very well-behaved and distinguished ladycat.  Then, after much reflection, it occurred to me that they were calling me KNOTTY!  That made a lot more sense but  I know this means that they're considering getting a shave for me.   My knots have become unmanageable and they are close to the skin so Mommy doesn't want to risk trying to cut them out.


Of course it will be nice and cool for the summer but I'm not going to let on that I'm happy about this turn of events.  It is much more of an advantage for me if Mommy thinks I disapprove...and I know just the face to use.

Bella

My dear, you'll be bootiful even in the nood!

Tell your humans they should get a shaver like the vets use - Rumblemum has one for me that she used whenever I started getting mats in my kitten fur. I've outgrown the mats now that I'm a MAN cat!! (Note from Rumblemum: He still gets mats around his *ahem* tail area that need shaving from time to time)

BeadedTail said...

Bella, that face certainly does show disapproval with the idea of getting shaved. We bet you'd feel better not being so knotty though but we won't tell your mommy that!

Bella, I just wanna share my story to your human and they never ever called you " Naughty " or " Knotty " again. Now I have a fight every single day, and I 'm so lazy to clean my poop bum, Mom have to clean it for me and I do purrs for her service. Yesterday she didn't check she hold me " Oh, I love you Puddy " and then she just realized she got my poop on her hand..ha..ha..but my dad feel hiss off because I leave it till it's knotty..Finally he have to cut it. : )
Now I guess you will have a better name , Bella : )

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Bella, if I were a human, I don't think I'd want to get near you with clippers when you are wearing that face!

Princess Jasmine said...

Ohh Bella, that is the most perfect dissaproving face ever. The vet stole some of my furrs a while back and they grew back pretty quick. Perhaps they could try a hooman tangle teezer and see if that helps :)xx

Angel Sweet Praline said...

My dear Bella, have you been naughty and not let your mom comb out your knots? I hope she can get your knots out without the clipping, but those things can hurt, too!

Marg said...

Oh no Bella, we hate to see you shaved again but it sure would be better than pulling those knots out. But it will be a cool look. And we know it will all grow out. Hope all of you have a really fun day.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oh dear Bella (Hannah meowing) our mum encourages me to sit on her knee for cuddles and she keeps a tiny pair of scissors handy for snipping out knots that won't unravel and (whispers) bits of pooh!! Lucy sits there looking all smug cos she's got short furs.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Are you going to get a 'Lion' cut Bella? My friend's kitty gets the Lion cut all the time and she is adorable ~ and since you are so beautiful already, I think you would be extra adorable looking like a lion!!!

And clearly you mom was meaning knotty as in your hair. ;)

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, yes, that's definitely the face of disapproval, Bella. LOL.

Is it only a year? Really, it feels like you've always been there! Maybe because we've only been around the CB for a year and a half anyway. LOL.

Old Kitty said...

Awwww bella bella Bella!!! Look at your beautiful face of disapproval!! Awwwwww!!! Me and Charlie hope you have a great time at the tortie beauty parlour soon!! Yay!!!

Hugs too to gorgeous Samson, Delilah and Sweet Pea! Take care

Cory said...

Bella, don't tell Figaro, but he's going to the groomer in 2 weeks! He thinks he's so smart being a pill about brushing. We can hardly wait!

Think of it as a spa day Bella. You definitely deserve that!

Cat said...

Oh Bella that face is very intimidating indeed!!!

Brian said...

That is the purrfect face to make your point sweet Bella!!!

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Oh, darlin' and most gorgeous Bella.....you make both the boys hearts go pitter-patter!!!!!!!!!!

Andy is having a problem with being knotty on his tummy, too.....and mama is trying her best to get rid of the knots.

We love y'all so very much.

OH Bella! I KNOW what you mean! Mommy has been combing and brushing and untangling me for days! She didn't even know just how bad they had become. I have mire knots in my chest furs and next time I go THERE I will ask them to shave my chestal area. I have some on my back leg pantaloons too. Mommy can't comb and brush those..I lay biteys on her every time. But that's how I got into this situation..not letting her brush. But now, I am.

Bella, you remind us of those cute Ewoks in Star Wars.

Cheri said...

Sorry to hear you are knotty but that is better than being naughty!

Julia Williams said...

Oh wow, that is an evil glare!! LOL. With that face, she will never guess that you are happy about the prospect of a shave. Might I suggest the Lion Cut? I hear it makes kittehs look really cute.

The Island Cats said...

Oh beautiful Bella!! We knew you could never be naughty...but knotty?? Maybe so. Your mom just wants to make you even more beautiful than you already are!!

Noll's Nip said...

Knotty but nice!

The Cat From Hell said...

Getting a shave is better than being notty!

CCL Wendy said...

Oh Bella! You are absolutely PURRiceless! When I scrolled down to that second picture I just guffawed!

You are a LOL-Cat that doesn't need any captioning!

Anyway, if you do have to get a shave, I hope it's not your whole body again.

You are beautiful with or without your furs, though, so purrhaps it's more important to be comfortable.

Angel Sweet Praline said...

Back again! Bella reminds me so much of Sweet Praline.

Miss Bella
We cannot believe it's been a whole year.
We are sure you will feel so much better without the knots!

Sorry about the knots though.
We are also happy that Maddie is getting better. Please pass along our purrs.

Bella, what a priceless photo, you're a cutie. All I can say, if you ever see the clipper (totally looks like a monster with big teeth) run and hide!

Bijou said...

You are lovely. Maybe you should grow dreads and be a wonderful Rasta cat. Love Bijou.

Angel and Kirby said...

Bella, you better not tell them you will like your haircuts!

Catsparella said...

Naughty or knotty, and even with that disapproving kitty face.. you're still a beauty, dear Bella!

p.s. I hope your Mom likes her new nails! Let me know what she thinks of them :D

Clooney said...

Oh Sweet Bella, too bad you have to get a haircut but your Mom is just looking out for you. Your pictures are precious.
