Grooming Fiasco

Well I scheduled Harley for a groom last week where I used to work. Drove 45 minutes and when I get there I found out the groomer quite that day. I was perturbed since I had driven so far but not surprised as there's a bunch of uncalled for nitpicking that had been directed at Leslie for months.

Thankfully Dr. Drake was kind enough to let me use his grooming equipment. HEHEHE. THe least I can say is that Harley won't be getting any litter stuck on her bootie or in her feet for quite some time. When I shaved her butt I clipped her with a surgery blade. DUH! That's what happens when you don't check the blade. I realized I had a sx blade after the first stroke but I kept going so she wouldn't have a gappy looking butt. The sad part is I leave her body alone so the skint rear is real noticeable. Next came the feet. I did ok. It's gappy but there's no fur in between her toes for litter to clump in. Thankfully I was smart enough to leave her face alone so that looks normal. Crathes and Cadbury like to make fun of her. I keep trying to tell her that it's JUST fur and it will grow back-eventually.

Oh yes. I tried taking pictures of my butchered groom job but Harley refused to model her new do. She went and pouted under the bed.

Aw, poor kitty. Ha ha ha!!!

Wish you could handle Tiger's bottom. Don't think it's worth the fight.

Oh Man!

This is why I prefer short hair cats.
Grooming cats is way too hard!

Baby is so scared of the razor. One time at the vet they were going to do her chin well she escaped under this x-ray machine & it took her an hour to come out!
