Thankful Thursday

Many of you wondered if the white stuff in the trashcan yesterday was cotton balls or our floof!  We're here to tell you that it's our floof!  We're thankful that Mom Paula doesn't give up on grooming us each morning and most evenings because if she didn't, all that floof would be in our bellies!

Grooming us each day is a full time job.  Mom Paula said she had to groom Angel Sweet Praline twice a day, too, but that Sweet Praline loved to be groomed.  We're not so sure we like it yet, but Mom Paula continues to work with us to get us comfortable with our grooming tools:  a rotating tooth comb, a brush, and the Furminator (for mats).  It's still tough to get Brulee's belly because she fights it, but she is getting better.

  1. Mom says she's glad that none of us mat. She remembers what it was like when she had himmies and doesn't want to do that again.

  4. Yowsers, that is lots of floof for sure! You could make great kitty fur jewelry with your lovely furs, beautiful Ladycats!

  5. Your mommy needs to save all that floof from the brushing and have yarn made from it for knitting. Yep, have someone knit a sweater and she could have her furbabies with her on every trip :)

  6. Surely there is a use for all that floof....

    What a great Mommy you have. That looks like lots of work!

  8. My dears, I too am not sure about this brushing thing.

    We have SO much in common...

  9. What amazing amounts of floor! Can you come and teach Mom how to make me let her brush me? Dad mostly only manages to brush my spine!

  10. Girls, brushing is AWESOME! I really do love it. I think I even love it more than catnip! Or... catnip and brushing at the same time! I think I would pass out from so much pleasure!

  11. That is an amazing amount of floof! The peeps can't convince Newton that getting brushed is fun, and the result is that he has to get manscaped when he is matted. You certainly don't want that. (We guess it would be ladyscaped in your case, but still, you don't want it!)

  12. We saw your post yesterday and our first thought was floof, but then we said nah, surely that must be cotton balls!

    That was all your floof? OMC, that's a lot of fur. LOL. Someone could make a sweater or an afghan with all your furs. :-)

  14. Hmm, lots of floof is right. Maybe you can take it and make little coats for the girls out of it. (Like one would do with sheep wool!)

  15. Wowee-Zowee good thing your Mom is such a good groomer!

  16. That's some lovely floof. We'd knit sweaters out of it!

  17. If you find someone with a spinning wheel, they could make some yarn out of your floof so you could have yarn balls to play with. Win-Win!

  18. That floof is so beautiful we think Mom Paula should auction it off in the next auction!

  21. Just remember,
    if you have a hairball, go to your sandbox to get rid of it. That's what I do.

  22. That is stunning floof, and a good job your Mum is so attentive. I bet it feels gorgeous, just like you.

    Little Red here is really not into being groomed and he definitely needs it. Magic loves it and would let me brush her into a sphinx cat!

  23. You COULD make cotton balls out of that floof!

  24. I don't have lots of floof, but Mommy does comb me. It kinda gets all my back itchies. But I still can't decide whether I like tummy combing. I think I like rubbies better there.

  26. We cannot believe how often you have to have your fluffiness brushed. Giulietta is the only one who requires this kind of grooming, and not nearly to the same degree. Even if you don't always like it, you are so fortunate that your mom has taken on the commitment to keep you both so gorgeous.

    Not to long to go and you'll have created a clone of you! BOL!!
    That's a LOT of excess fur. You could use it as packing for gifts.
    Hey - did you know you were THIS versatile ??
    Thank you for joining Thankful Thursday again and I look forward to your next post. *waves paw* :=o)
