Niobe got shaved!

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

So the Squeaker got shaved this morning. The chick doing it was just awesome, I'll definitely go back to her. All the staff members kept coming back to coo at Niobe and tell me how good she was. They were shocked that she wasn't sedated and had never been shaved before but was still doing so well. I helped hold her during the shave, so I don't have any pics of the actual process, but I do have before and afters:

Before:

After, with the clump of hair - notice it's bigger than she is:

And then once we got home:

She looks so weird but feels like velvet. And now you can see her pretty pink collar, lol .

Ok, since I'm not a cat person, why would you shave a cat?

She was getting matted but wouldn't let me brush her to get the mats out.

Inara seems to think this is a new cat so she's terrorizing her. You can't hear Niobe growl at her in this, unfortunately, 'cause it was awesome!

She was really great. She was pleased that Niobe didn't poop on her when she lifted her tail to shave her bum - she said about 80% of cats do. :shock:

Yeah, it depends where you go, if you go to a groomer your cat will look nice, if you go to a vet, your cat will look patchy and uneven but functional :lol3:
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

I love how cats feel after they are shaven.
And by the way, your kitty tower is awesome! My kitties are jealous.
