My Big Week


I guess you guys heard from Pop earlier this week that I am now registered. The city found out about me because the vet has to report to them every animal she vaccinates for rabies. Recently I had my three year booster shot. This reporting process only began last year. And just for the record, as anyone who is owned by a feline knows, we cats register only one way. We are Independents.

Something else happened to me this week. I discovered that having my hair brushed is pleasant. Pop tried to brush my hair a couple of years back and I went all Tasmanian devil on her. Her hands were bloody and covered in my fur. This time Mr. Pop decided to give it a try. Maybe I’m mellowing out with age, but I didn’t fight him. In fact, I stretched out and allowed him to brush away. He claims to have brushed out enough hair to make a whole other cat.

Now don’t think that I’ve lost all my fight. If he gets near my tummy with that brush, things could get ugly. I think I have made the rules very clear.

So as this week draws to an end, I am a registered cat with the shiniest coat you have ever seen. Too bad I’m an inside cat because I think the way I look now would just drive the lady cats wild!

Have a great weekend and maybe give something new a try. You might like it.

Sincerely,
Fred the Cat (the cat who loves you guys!)

Brushing is the gateway grooming. Pretty soon, you'll be begging to be vacuumed with the brush attachment. One of my Pussies for Peace does that.

P.S. The Pussies for Peace think you're very hot. Meow!

omg, dcup!
HOW did you convert your cat???
Jake is part hooman and he hasn't gone nearly that far!
he runs from the hand-vac and as for Maurice [the robo-vac] well-- have you ever seen a paranoid- schizophrenic cat?
drop by sometime when Maurice is doing his thing.

Fred, Chester likes a good brushing, too, especially when the bristles get near his tail. I hope you're not as messy as he is though... he's shedding now and leaving clumps of hair everywhere. Have a great weekend.

Our cats both love being brushed. You just have to forget your dignity and go with it.

Fred, it is good to open up and learn to accept love and care from those who love you. Someday, who knows?, maybe you'll be ready for tummy grooming,.
