Another Bad Hair Day

I was going to wait until May, when it gets warmer, but Nermal had some really bad knots in his fur that I decided to give him an early haircut. He just seemed so uncomfortable all the time, like he wanted to scratch himself everywhere. And forget about brushing them out, they were just too far gone. After the initial annoyance with me.... he actually seems to enjoy the freedom from all that hair. With the hair, he would do 5 minutes of cardio with his paper ball, before he would take a nap. Without the hair, his paper ball exercises go on for 30 mins! This is important, because as you can see from the next picture, he needs to work on loosing that Buddha belly....Happy !

Unbelievable! Our long hair cats have special needs, don't they? That is one great pile of fur. I am amazed that you are able to do the job yourself: I have to take my longhair to the vet. Thankfully it has only happened like three times in her life. And she gets so cold without that fur! Thank you for sharing!

Now THAT is one HUGE pile of hair!! I bet he does feel a lot better. Although, he is giving you the evil eye in that picture.

I think my comment beamed out into space and disappeared.

THAT is a HUGE pile of hair, no wonder he feels better without it...
My ragdolls would hide if I did this to them, but fortunately their hair is not a kinky as a Persian and I can comb the knots out.

Nermal still looks very furry without all that hair! I'm sure he feels much lighter, which is why he plays longer. I have no fur and I can play for a very long time. :)

Oh my, what a pile! He actually lets you cut it? I'm sure he's much more comfortable. You could get someone to spin all that hair. Eventually someone could knit it up and you could wear it, too!

Hahaha he's looking at his lost hair & it seems he's not happy about it. Don't worry Nermal hair grow very fast! Pero di ba magaan sa pakiramdam wag ka na mag tampo kay Bossing Angelo :) ! Comme ça tu n'est pas mal coiffé.

Hi Angelo....

Wow, Nermal has so much hair. And after the hair cut
he still looks so cuddly.

Teena said...

Ha! That's a lotta hair!!

It must have been such a relief for him. I didn't know that cats can grow their hair that long.
