My fluffy, long-haired, calico, kitty is now an exotic, sleek, velvety, lioness, princess, cat. That's what we're telling her anyway. The white hair puffs on my dark olive colored carpet finally got to me. So did the occassional hair ball that she would cough up...Ewww! I didn't want anyone here at home to have to deal with such yuckies while I was in China. Before I left, I took her in for a hair cut. Here is the result.
At first, I though she looked comical. Now I kinda like it. I think she looks very avante-garde. She feels just like velvet. I'm sure that some ancient Egyptian culture would worship her as queen of the universe. To us, she is still just our calico cat, Tinkerbell, who is loved a whole bunch. Go kitty!
It should be noted that kitty is not real impressed with her new 'do'. She fakes a shiver every time I look at her. Since her makeover, she has not slept on the end of my bed at night, like she usually does, nor has she graced me with her presence in my sewing room. Maybe my absence will soften up her heart?
