I am a short-legged cat. I live with my big brother Minou and an overly attentive human. This is my story. Today is Saturday, October 22, 2016

Getting the brush-off


As I mentioned last week, I really hate being brushed. Of course Brother Minou just looooooves it. He prances in circles when he first sees the Furminator comb and then he says, "It's not a toomuh." At which point I'm like, that's not even the right movie, you nimrod. He doesn't care. His feeble mind is bloated with anticipation for the grooming to come.

I, on the other hand, would rather wear gingham bloomers (something to look into —ed.) than have those evil rakes go through my fur. Personally, I think the whole ritual is barbaric, but Mom seems to think that having cat hair covering every surface is undesirable. (Yeah, I don't get her logic either.) So every now and then, I have to suffer through the humiliation of going to the cat salon. As you will see, I act like it is the biggest imposition in the world.

(PS) Mom thinks I look like Rudolph Valentino at 1:40.

Grendel has never figured out that the pink comb that feels so good on his head is the same one that makes him claw and hiss at me when I try to defur his tummy five minutes later.

Grendel? Why, did your cat inspire the Sunny Day Real Estate song of the same name?

Cats don't like belly grooming in general. Even Minou dislikes it.

And Sabs, I think that if you and I were to team up, we could be unstoppable. World domination through hair shedding!

Cute video. I talk to all my animals like that! My cat won't even let me get near her with a brush.

I, for one, am all for grooming — and that goes for Munchkin cats, too!
