the truth 'bout the lion cut

Hi efurrybody; JP Buzzerbee here . . .

I wanna try to explain Meep's new haircut. See, the thing is, that little cat never washes himself. I'm serious. He might wash his face, or enjoy an "after dinner mint" as Timmy would say, but that's 'bout it. Jim and the girl do what they can; Meep gets wiped-down with "pet wipes" a coupla times a week, and Jim tries to brush him almost every nite. But it's just not enuff. Poor Meep gets so many mats and tangles, there's just no way to keep him groomed. The vet said that this is really the best thing for him - turns out that those mats can be real uncomfortable (I wouldn't know).

Craziest thing is, whenever Meep gets a haircut like this, he's a whole new cat. Usually he's very "low-key" (yeah, that's a nice way to put it!) and doesn't really do a whole lot. But when he gets a lion cut - look out! He's practically spunky! He runs around the house talkin', he plays with lotz more of his toys, he's much more curious 'bout stuff, and he bugs the you-know-what outta me! (Eh, that's a pretty small price to pay to have my little 'dopted brother feelin' better.) He's plenty warm, and we've got lotza windows for him to get sun. And of course, there's always his *special* blankie/pillow thing for him to cuddle into.

So now that Meep's all cleaned-up and active, maybe we'll have some more "action" photos to post . . .

Oh wow - it's 3:00pm on Friday for us kitties on the east coast - happy week-end efurrybody!

Poor old Meep, but if he feels better with the lion cut, that's good. I just hope no one ever tries to do it to me!

I think I would probably have more energy and more freedom to move around without any matting to my fur. I'm sure it was pretty painful for him to move around with his fur sticking together like that.

You're definitely one of the coolest, Meep! ROAR!

Our human wants to know HOW you give Meep a lion cut? None of us sit still long enough to get our nails cut. BTW: we think he looks mighty FINE -- Alberta, Sky, Blackie and Charlie
