|Where'd my furs go!?!|
|Why'd you do this to me?!!|
As is becoming the habit, apparently, when the weather changes her fur starts flying off her body. We were finding hand-fulls of fluff everywhere. In the morning the path to the kitchen was covered with big tufts of fur leading to the food bowls . . . a feline Hansel and Gretl twist! Then all of a sudden, as if overnight. her back end was completely matted and all the mats were like concrete -- we could NOT brush them or comb them out. She was suffering and confused about what was happening, so we had no choice but to take her to the vet.
That's because unlike normal kitties, she won't let strangers touch her without biting their hands off. So, not only do we have to pay for an office visit ($53) and grooming ($35), we also need an anesthetist ($50) to administer the sedative. I realize there are some human females who spend about that much for grooming visits to the salon. So, am I complaining? Nah. We lived with Bhu, the Mat-Master of them all, for 19 years and so I should say we are used to it (but we never really are).
If you are some of the "lucky" Americans who are having snow this week, may I sympathize! All I can suggest is plenty of hot cocoa. xoxo
