This coat is causing me to fear the coming of Spring.

Baron:


This is one of my favorite Baron pics from last Spring:

Seriously?? WOW!
And soooo much fur! And he grew so much darker! How much does Baron weight? Is he big generally, or just hairy?

What a gorgeous cat Baron is. You will have serious hair bunnies come this spring. How often is a cat like Baron groomed?

How dare you post these pictures without some kind of warning?! Don't you know I have a bad heart?!!!

Baron is just gorgeous and I melted when I saw the baby picture of him. I can't believe that's the same cat.

It IS hard to believe he's the same cat. I love him to tears. He's been a fun one to watch develop personality wise.

He is a big kid. We're not exactly sure of his weight right now, but I'm guessing he's right around 13 pounds. Shorter, very solid, and built like a bull. Especially compared to his older brother. However, his huge coat in the pic above does make him look even larger than he is.

I groom both he and Truman often. No less than twice a week. But right now Baron has been getting it a bit more. I keep a greyhound comb laying around because Baron's ruff is so big that he had troubles cleaning it, so I help out once or twice a day with a quick comb out. Truman had this same problem last year when going through his first full winter coat.

From a cute ball of fur to a regal looking adult kitty! Well, you might find some serious fur floating in the air come spring, but what a gorgeous coat. Well worth the floating fur.

What a doll! He's a real heart throb isn't he? I had a Persian that needed daily brushing or he would mat right up, so consider yourself lucky with twice a week!!!

This may be a stupid question but is he a himi or a Birman? Either way they are gorgeous! Do they mat much? My Persian tangles right up around his belly area.
Interested in what kind of comb or brush you use?
