Tortie Tuesday

I've said it before, but it warrants saying again - Mommy is lazy!


Quite awhile ago she told me that I'd have to go in for a spa day to get rid of my knots, but she just loves my beautiful coat and didn't want to have me shaved, so she tried a DIY knot removal.

Let me tell you, I'm not happy!  My head looks like a mushroom and my fur is all uneven!


Aside from the fact that I look silly, the weather has started to get really hot.  I put my paw down and demanded she take me to a professional groomer.


I have an appointment for Saturday for a lion's cut.  Maybe this time she'll learn that if she wants me to have a long, luxurious coat, she needs to take care of brushing me more often!

Bella

Brushin is really necessary for the long hair with the double coat. Our little Miss Princess (Spooky) has that problem. She's lookin a mite 'disheveled' of late what with the knots that have to be cut out. Brushing makes most of the big knots worse, so a lion cut would be nice. We just can't afford it what with the Small One's Med bills, so we do the 'snip snip' bit and try to be fashionable with the wild look. She's cool and content, so it's all good.

Hope you get that comfy cut Sat and let us see the end results.

Y'all come see us sometime.

Oh noes Bella! What did your mommy do to you! (We hate to admit but we giggled at your mushroom head.) You are still beautiful though. We think your lion cut will be pretty cool too!

Mr Puddy said...

Miss Bella, A Lion's Cut Must make you feel better when you have a warm weather : )

I have silky fur that only needs a once-over, and Boodie's isn't as long as yours, so my human gets away with slacking off. You gorgeous Persian girls need lots more grooming than we do!

Catherine said...

You are going to look adorable with a lion cute sweet Bella! I can hardly wait for your photo! :)

MOL, Sorry Bella we did have to laugh at that picture. We apologize. You do look a little silly. We have to agree with Mom, we don't want you to have to be clipped but maybe a lion trim would be classy. We have a new cat here that has very long hair so we are going to have to figure out the knots too. Our best to Samson and Gabriel.

oh noes!!! mommy isn't doing a good job at all with my daily brushing and I have knots on mt legd and on my chest. mommy can't do it herself as she has the left hand only, so when I finally get to the spa..i will need my LEGS shaved and some of the creamy furs on my beautiful chest.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Bella, sorry, sweetie, but that second photo of you made us burst out laughing! Better let the professionals handle your spa treatments. Hahaha!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh how awful Bella! A mushroom head! That was just norty of yoor mommy.

Random Felines said...

Bella - we hate to say this, but we think your mom might have done you a serious diservice.... Glad you have a spa appointment and can't wait for you to be more comfy!!

Brian said...

I think you look lovely...perhaps you should hide before the lion tamer looks for you!

Angel Sweet Praline said...

Oh, sweet Bella! Your mom must find the time to groom you each day. Sweet Praline would get knots within hours after I would comb her, so I'd comb her again. I remember how quickly your fur grew out, so maybe it won't take that long again.

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

Gorgeous, Bella, we promise we will love you even after a lion's cut.

Andy needs a lion cut also, but mama doesn't have the green papers or the transportation to take him in to have it done......she keeps trying to untangle him, which is a continuing stress for him and for mama :(

We love you, Bella.....and please remember, you are gorgeous with or without your glorious furs.

Love to all the Monkeys.

Cat said...

Sorry Bella, the mushroom head comment made me laugh :-) We can't wait to see your lion cut!!!

Ginger Jasper said...

A lion cut is not so bad and I know you will still look beautiful. I never learn and wont let them brush me so much.. Hugs GJ xx

The Crew said...

Oh my goodness! Bella, what did she DO to you?!

CCL Wendy said...

Mommy gave you a pretty bad haircut indeed, Bella! Do you sit still for her when she's trying to get your knots out?

Dante doesn't. I have to catch him while he's snoozing, and even then he'll wake up part way through, so I do it in stages.

We're devastated that you're getting your beautiful furs cut off, but we know it's only a matter of time before they grow back more beautimous than eFUR!

Ann Dziemianowicz said...

A mushroom! Oh dear. Bella, are too beautiful to be a fungus! haha! Someone on my FB page just posted a pix of their cat's new lion cut. His name is Winston.

Julia Williams said...

We are excited! Can't wait to see pretty Bella as a lion!

Cory said...

I apologize in advance for my mom.

She laughed when she saw you Bella! Mom said you made her day since she had a not so great day until she saw you.

Purrs sweet one!

The Island Cats said...

Oh Bella! You need your own fur stylist!!

Prancer Pie said...

We thinks you will look amazing! Be sure to post before and after pics!

Clooney said...

Oh Dear Sweet Bella, I agree with the Island Cats...a beauty like you needs her own stylist for sure! I hope your spa day goes well.

Old Kitty said...

Bella, Bella, Bella! Sweet adorable beautiful bella Bella!!! You look divine and just purrfect!! Me and Charlie hope you have a wonderful day at the spa - a girl can never have too many beauty treatments! Yay!

Cat with a Garden said...

Oh Bella, our mom had the nerve laughing at your "mushroom" picture. The nerve! We agree that a professional cut is in order. Good luck!
