Louis Gets A Haircut ...

Every summer for the last 5 or so years Louis gets his summer "do".  His hair gets so matted that the only way to help it out is to take him to the Vet to be shaved.  They put him "out", which means he couldn't have anything to eat after 6 PM the night before.  The next morning I listened to about 2 hours of "wailing" since he wanted breakfast!

At first I didn't know how he would adapt to it, but after the first time we had it done, Louis pranced around like he was saying "Look at me" !!   A friend of mine asked me recently HOW I knew he loved the haircut.  You see, she is not a real animal lover so is unaware that our 4-legged furry babies actually do talk to us!!  So, my dear friend, Louis himself TOLD me he loved it!!  

BEFORE....



Tux looks a little worried that maybe HE was going to get a cut also!


AFTER...



These are photos from past years..


My sis, Molly, calls this his "Nancy Sinatra" boots...


This year was a "Lion Cut" - Louie didn't like this cut as well - he likes having all the hair shaved off his chest.



His hair grows back fairly fast - so by the end of summer it won't be so distinct.  But for now, Louie is happy, I am happy I don't have clumps of hair in my hand when I pet him!!  Plus, I don't have much to brush anymore..for at least a while!!

Thanks for stopping by....

Louie is ready for a nude beach! He looks so comfortable in his new cut for summer. I hope you rewarded him with a nice dinner:-)

My daughter took her cat in just to have a bath last year and this is what they did to him. She had no warning and both she AND the cat were very unhappy.
So I am going to forward your URL to her to let her know that this actually happens on purpose! Yes, it grew out fast enough and all is well. But I doubt she'll ever take him there again. :)

BTW: I simply adore your gorgeous floral header!

Louis looks so cute! I have never done one of the kitties, but did have our Sheltie done every summer...at first she would slink in the door hoping no one would see her but after having it done a couple times she would prance in and wiggle all over the place.

Man, I am laughing at the nude beach comment!

Louis does look like it is a lot cooler, I like the Nancy Sinatra boots :)

The blue blog with the white dianthus header is spectactular!

In the words of Randy...HE'S BALD!! lol I think he is probably happy. I usually only do Jigs' hair twice a year but he really needs another cut right now. Maybe him and Louis can be twins :-)

Nancy Sinatra boots? That comment made me laugh out loud. Louis is going to enjoy his summer without wearing his fur coat!

Louis looks so cool and collected in his summer do. I am chuckling because I've never seen a shaved cat before, especially one with Sinatra boots.

He looks like the cat version of a show poodle. I had no idea they did this to cats. Have a great a day. Blessings...Mary
