Cat Cruelty or Feline Frailty...

Let's have a moment of silence for Sully...he misplaced his coat (Yes, he's still live!).

As we all know, I had an accident with the kitty. Sully, our cat had bad mats. I accidentally cut him with scissors, which required an all too expensive batch of sutures and an overnight stay with the vet. I picked him up tonight...he looked pathetic...looks pathetic. He might be a little embarrased, too.
You see, they asked if we would like to have him "De-matted." (For a price, of course) I think they knew they had a guaranteed customer. I mean, what was I going to say? "Nah, I want to try it again with the scissors, I don't think I will cut him again...huh? Yeah, see you again tomorrow." Yeah, it was a no brainer. I expected he would look a little blotchy, but...naked? Hmmm....
Funny thing is they left his tail, his head, and both front legs untouched.
I feel horrible! I can't believe I did such a thing! He is spending his time in our bedroom. It's warmer and he isn't supposed to go out side. If he did go outside, he would surely freeze. Then where would I be? Frozen, sliced, stitched, hairless cat...isn't it bad enough he is nearly bald? At least he still purrs. I love that cat.

It's really hard to keep from cutting them when they have so much hair. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Oh No. I know how you feel I have 2 long haired cats and I have cut them before so now I always get someone else to do it. i still wash them every other week while getting soaked myself.

He will forgive you.

Well, now he really lives up the nick name puppy-cat he looks like a poodle, a very skinny poodle.
good thing he is so laid back I still think the vet could have stitched it without putting him under.

Ha ha, now that is funny! I don't mean the cut part, I mean the shaved part.. You may want to invest in a good electric shaver. I shave the sheltie in the summer and leave his tail, head and legs. He walks around acting all embarrassed for days. lol
