The Rudy Report

Ahoy kitties! It's me - RUDY! - with your Rudy Report! So much to share...where do I start? Oh, I know! Let me start by telling you how intellectually challenged mommy is! You know how we have been without the innerwebs forever? Well, the reason was that Mommy kept entering her wireless router password over and over and over and over again. The only problem was that she did not enter it in caps. It only took her 4 days to figure that out. Hoo-Boy, what a stoopid thing to not figure out for 4 DAYS! I'm at a loss for words when it comes to this. But, we're back on the webs and now I can tell you about my visit to Tiffany the wonder-groomer. Lemme' back up a little bit. It's no secret that I HATE to be groomed. HATE HATE HATE! Unless, apparently, Tiffany does it. Almost a week ago (last Tuesday) I was unceremoniously scooped up and stuffed into my PTU and delivered to Tiffany. She fawned and ooohhhhed and ahhhhed over me, and patiently listened to Mommy who, in great and painful detail, told her about my recent illness and how Dr. Wendy finally gave the OK for me to get groomed (thanks Dr. Wendy, I will not forget this). Anyhow, Mommy left and I went with Tiffany to endure a bath, clippy-claws, ear cleaning and a blow-out which included a liberal dose of stink-pretty applied to my furs. They called Mommy to say I was ready to come home and when Mommy arrived to collect me, Tiffany said "I don't get it, he just sits there and lets me groom him. He's so easy..." I think that's where Mommy's head exploded.
You see kitties, Mommy is no cat-amateur. She's worked with thousands of cats in her shelter days and she's no feline-dummy. She can clip claws, de-mat and clean ears with the best of them. But me? No way. I will not let her do any of those things. It's just a thing I have with her. Don't get me wrong, I love her and she adores me, but when it comes to grooming, no thanks Mommy, I rather you didn't.
Puff, Powder and the Parkster have no problems with her getting up close and personal with their grooming. In fact, they kinda' like it. Maybe it's a guy thing...
Mommy promises to get some better photos of my new 'do, but really, I have sleek gorgeous furs now. No hunks are missing and if anything, I look maaaaarvelous! The only shaving I received was around my spot 13. And I kinda' like the look - less cleaning required from me. It's all good.
Keep those tails high kitties...

Maybe you have a cap locks groomin' button your mom forgets to push...

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I am glad that is taken care of and that you have figured out your internets problems.

Raymond and Busby said...

Sounds like you got that thing the humans call a "Brazilian" whatever that is. Lookin' good Rudy!

Sparkle said...

I dunno, Rudy, I might be a little wary of being groomed by someone who forgot to hit the all caps button when entering a password. So I can't say I blame you. I want to see photos of your stylin' new furs!

Sweet Praline said...

I used to get groomed by someone else all of the time until someone hurt my tummy and I didn't like it anymore. I only let my mom touch me now.

Angel and Kirby said...

WE think you are in love with Tiffany and just want to go see her!

Forever Foster said...

Our mum struggles with us too. She is worried we will hold it against her. Go on Rudy, did you enjoy your grooming? We think you might have :P

Mom wants to meet Tiffany - Caramel (AKA Ms. Floofs) could use a good grooming in her pantaloons region.

Link Bartholomew said...

Sounds like your mom needs to hold on to the groomer. Sounds like she has special cat powers!

Daisy said...

Rudy, I can't wait to see your new look!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are look forward to seeing your new stylish furcut Rudy.

Brian said...

I love your picture Rudy! Oh my, that groomer human sounds pretty fantastic!

Cory said...

I'm wondering if you liked your new groomer lady so much that the next time you get a mat, you'll ask your mom to take you to see her! Ha!

We want to see pictures of you looking all groomed and handsome.

Eric and Flynn said...

We are glad your mum worked out what was wrong. So you're not just groomed to perfection, you got a Brazillian and you smell good too! Can't wait to see the photos.

Laila and Minchie said...

Oh, Rudy, you are looking fine...mighty fine! We are just picturing your Mom's head exploding! MOL!

Katnip Lounge said...

Rudy, we wish we had the smellernets so we could sniff your furz! Johnny gets pantaloon trims too and he thinks they're the bees knees for grooming. He's a Busy Cat and doesn't have time for well, all that licking.

Forty Paws said...

Maybe Rudy has a crush on Tiffany?

Madi and Mom said...

Rudy sniff sniff you smell mighty fine!!!
Let me know when you take your stand up routine on the road. You are one funny guy. Poor Moms they just don't have much computer smartness do they. My mom would done exactly what yours did!!
Happy Monday,
Madi

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

We thinks maybe just getting out of your 'territory' makes you easier to groom? Oh, and a 'potty clip'...Teri said that's what they call them at the cat hospital where she works...and cologne?? That would have pushed us over the edge...

Ginger Jasper said...

Mum knows how your mum feels as I too stand for the groomer and wont let mum do it.. he he.. I bet you look great now.. Hugs GJ xx

Furkidsmom said...

We can't wait to see pics! We're MOL @ your Mom 'cause that's the kind of thing our Mom would do.

Pierro said...

ps: our grampa just had the same problem last week--- and 6 days with out innernets until we gave mom and dad permission to drive ovver to gramma and grampa and get their compooter up and running again.
turns out part of the problem was the modem.... it was not plugged in properly
Mom said it was probably embarrassing for grampa so mom and dad did not say much about that.


but but but, your mom is not 88 years old yet is she?
haha just kiddy-ing
and more bonks

ABBY said...

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We know about da moms furgetting passwords and when to do caps and stuff like dat. Mom hadda call our uncle Gilbert 'cuz she furgot her router password. Dad asked why uncle Gil would haf it and mom told him "because I just knew I'd forget it so I emailed it to him and he wrote it down in his book..hahahaha She has his passwords too. Oh, Rudy, Punkin used to love her groomer to, we think it's something about how dey tell yoo yoor handsome and stuff. We bet yoor mom can't stop petting yoo and stuff.

Derby, Ducky said...

Oh Rudy, you just have the hots for Miss Tiffany and want to get to go see her. It is always nicer to get groomed by a pretty young girl, versus your mum.
