I'm Ready For My Close Up, Mr. DeMille

Mom never took care of long-haired cats before I came to live with her. Part of caring for me involves combing my fur. She had to do it yesterday because I had a mat develop at my shoulders.

I don't like being combed and having these things removed. It tugs. It pulls. It can hurt. Sometimes, mom has to hold me down if I refuse to be combed and the mat gets too big. This one wasn't and it came out with the first pass of the comb.

Still, I don't like it.

Mom's been letting us come out onto the deck when she gets home from work. It's been really nice outside. She crochets while we wander about. I like to sit on the deck railing.

Okay. I guess that combing does make me look good. I'm practicing "staring off into the backyard".

See you next week.

You look so well-groomed, Pilchard. Newton still won't let the head peep near him with a brush or comb, so we admire your can-do attitude.
