The Lion in Summer

Without any further adieu...
 
TA-DA!
Rudy Toots had a lot of his floof go poof!
 Fresh from the groomers with a hearty appetite!
 No more mats anywhere to be found.
The 'rents can't stop squeeing...
They say he feels like velvet.
Personally...
...I can't stop laffin'! He looks like a freekin' rat!

Mommy here - Rudy is just fine, as a matter of fact, he seems pretty pleased with himself. He sprawled right out in the middle of the living room for all the world to behold his glory. Parker, Puff, Powder and Diamond Doggie stared and stared at him. He has to be cooler and it has to feel good to have those horrible mats off of him. But honestly, the looks on his brother and sister's faces when they first looked at him were pretty priceless...

I think he looks great! They did a super job. The Woman wishes she could find someone to do that to Gemini--not so much this year as she is not matted and we're still waiting on summer but just cause sometimes she does get a little matted up. Personally, I'd like to see Ichiro all shaved up.

Lisa and Baby said...

Aww, poor rascal! He looks fine, but with all of you laughin' at him...

On a different note, we want to thank you kindly for coming by and leaving sweet words for us. Jack's passing has been difficult, but with everyone's support, we are doing better every day.

My human wouldn't dare do that to Boodie - she is afraid I would hiss at her instead of laugh...

Parker you are hysterical!!! Rudy will feel so much better now...Hunny Bunny gets some mats too and mommy can cut them out with a seam ripper...works real good! Our kitty who came b4 me used to get shaved each summer...Miss Minka always loved getting rid of that blue cream Persian floof and getting to sleep in bed with the rents...much love to all of you from the cozy cottage

Sorry to laugh Rudy, but you look kinda funny.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Rudy, we think you look great! And more importantly, we're sure you feel better without all the matted, hot floof. Just never mind the looks your fur siblings give you. :-)

Random Felines said...

We think you are pretty handsome (don't get ideas mom - we don't need a shave). But mom remembers when Angel Tigger got shaved and the other felines were pretty appalled!! MOL

Dude, the cut look kewl and cool. Left enough to make you look like a short hair cat, not a no hair cat.

OKcats said...

Oh Rudy, you are probably way more comfortable now! But maybe they can think of some way to blend or taper where the long meets the short! :)

Your OK friends, Fuzzy and Zoe

Love this post! ...Rudy reminds me of our poodle we had when I was in jr. high. Dad wanted to save money by doing the (badly overdue) grooming himself. He was done expect for the head when unexpected company arrived. Poor Brandy the poodle...he was so embarrassed. The laughing and howling was endless. Fortunately he got over it...and got the rest of his haircut. ; )

xo,
Glogirly & Katie

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Kizzie says, "I might get myself one of those crew cuts as well - that way I will look harder and scare all the other cats off".
