Two years ago, while away at a bachelorette party my husband took our gorgeous Maine Coon cat, Cisco, to be groomed.
The groomer asked him, "would you like to have her hair cut?"
My husband, knowing summer was coming, and thinking Cisco would appreciate a little relief, said "sure!"
The groom asked him, "would you like a lion cut?"
My husband, not knowing what one was, said "sure!"
So a day later, I came home, to a shaved cat! She was shivering and completely indignant that we had cut off her coat and left her cold and naked.
But the thing is, we kind of got used to it. And more than that, the look started growing on us. And even more than that, it reduced the times per week we had to de-hair our home by a million and a half.
So, it's that time of year again. In the next week or so (as soon as "June gloom" is well past us) our little kitty is going to go get her annual haircut.
And she will look like this.
