Awwwww, the poor thing! I've seen a few shaved cats in my life -- mostly the result of hair that's too matted to comb out --- I always feel sorry for them. Not sure why -- I take my dogs to the groomer for trims -- but cats just oughta be allowed to keep their fur. I think they remind me of our poor newly-sheared Suffolk sheep we kept when I was a kid -- they always looked like they were "crossing their legs" to try to cover their naked bodies.

That's really cute CJ! I'm trying to picture pulling that off with my 2 - 18 pound cats. Max, who is already prone to stampede at the first sign of danger, tends to run over what ever is in his way. The air in the imediate vacinity would be ripped to shreads, and what ever else is near by. I think I would be looking for bandaids and Max would probably be perfectly dry.

The same would occur, I believe, with my two old lady cats (15 and 18), and I wouldn't blame them at all.

You are probably already aware of another "How to" involving cats -- "How to Pill a Cat". If you all haven't heard that one, I'll be glad to post it.

Hint: the cat wins.

A Cat with a Story

I was sitting at a traffic light, watching the cars go by when all of a sudden a dog, the boxer type, rushed through the traffic, dodging the cars to make it to the medium. He suddenly turned around and headed back through the traffic. Whereupon he was struck and was thrown through the air 50 or 60 feet landing in the middle of the right-hand lane. The light changed and I traveled through the intersection and was forced to stop because of the dog lying in the roadway. No one would stop, and I might not have either if it were not for the fact that he was laying so that I couldn't get past him. I was sure nothing could be done for him; the injuries were obviously fatal. As I got out of the car and began removing him from the road, I saw in his mouth, much to my surprise, a black ball of fur no bigger than my fist. I moved the dog to the side of the road where I discovered that that ball of black fur was a kitten. The dog had apparently rushed out to the medium to save him, since, during the whole ordeal, he never bit down or harmed the kitten in any way. It's been 2 years and she fits in rather well with our other 3 children...er...cats. We had always heard a farthing was a lucky coin, so it seemed appropriate to name her Farthing (Far Far for short). Below is a recent snap shot, I thought you might enjoy it.

Hi
To keep things honest....

I just did a search on google to see what a "line cut" would be like on a cat and the link I followed led to the above " lion cut" picture. Since it turned out to be a humor site I am not certain that the photo has been subjected to manipulation. That one really fooled me!

Steve, that's an incredible story, and an incredible beginning to a new chapter in that cat's life! Sure wish the dog had survived, but glad you were the one to find Farthing. Far Far certainly is lucky, and hopefully will share some of her luck with you throughout her lifetime.
