Hello, Kitties!

You may have noticed my beautiful, floofy tail.  I love my tail and wave it around like a flag.  My mommy is used to getting hit in the face with it too.  Its a royal tail, fit for a Queen like me.  The furs are so soft, and they smell good.

So, what is the problem you ask?  Well, because of some un-named one's attitude, the mom won't comb out that un-named one's mats anymore.  I suppose she doesn't like being growled at or bitten.  Its difficult to speculate.

Instead she found a "groomery" specializing in cats.  Umph!  You'd think they'd go out of business, I mean, what cat needs outside help with grooming?  So, over the weekend, after we got our power back, the mom took me there and they SUMMERIZED me!  Yes, they removed my undercoat, and they didn't forget to do my tail!  And then there was the "sani-clip", which for modesty's sake I won't show any pictures.  Let's just say the mom had a good laugh when she saw a space between my back legs wide enough to "spit watermelon seeds through".  Who knew the mom was such a rube!

So here I am in the before pictures:

See how fluffilishus my tail is!

Everything looked ok when she came to pick me up:

But then, when we got home, this is what was discovered!
Please note I no longer have my bow, I squished it as soon as I could.

I'm worried its going to take more than a year for my full glory to wave again!  If that isn't something to whine about, I don't know what is!

Well, your tail may not look as fluffy right now, but the rest of you looks ultra-white and fluffy like a cloud! I don't know how they managed to do that while taking your undercoat!

P.S. Paws up for crushing that silly bow! What are you, a Christmas present?

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh my gosh! They took three quarters of your tail floof! It looks like a tiny white stump! Oh I'm sorry... I dont mean to make it worse, but wow! Don't worry, when winter comes, I bet it all comes back in floofy as ever!

Prancer Pie said...

You poor thing! How dare they! We'll sue, take this to Parliament, storm the castle, or mebbe you could just yak a hairball in protest. You decide. We thinks you look beautiful, though. XOXO

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Well, you are STILL fluffylicious, but your tail! Your tail is....woeful. Only a ghost of it's former glory. And Spitty understands about Beautimous Tails, as he has one.

But your floof will return, and sooner than you'd think, too. I am so sorry you subjected to this barbarous treatment. You deserve elebenty-four treats for it.

Katie and Glogirly said...

OMC!!! The indecency of it all. And they had the nerve to top it off with a purple BOW??? Seriously. Maybe one of your humans would like to get scalped "down there" and then have to walk around with a purple bow. That'll show em.
; )

Oh Sweet Julie! What a traumatic experience! We feel for you (even though we don't have much floor to speak of...). But we think you do still look very beautiful!

Julie! Your poor tail! Maybe you could get some fur extensions until it all comes back.

The Meezers or Billy said...

oh noes Julie!! that is just AWFUL. We think you still look gorgeous

Angel MoMo's mom said...

Never mind Julie, you are still beautiful! The bow was a silly idea. MoMo made quick work of it when she had one years ago.

Hannah and Lucy said...

You were left nearly naked you poor dear - but it must be cooler!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

Well I think you always look fantastic regardless of the seasonal fashion!

Katie Isabella said...

Oh JULIE! Seeing what your sweetheart said (Avalon's Garden and Mewsings of Garden Cats) should help you get thru this awful assault on your purrsonage.

CCL Wendy said...

What a crime, Julie! I think you should PURRess charges! Stealing all of your underfurs was not in the bargain. Yes, getting rid of a few mats PURRhaps -- but NOT THIS!!!

Furs grow pretty fast, but you'll likely not be back in full coat for another 6 to 8 weeks.

In the meantime just avoid exposing yourself.

How would they think they could improve on tail perfection. Our condolences, but this too shall pass.

Oh, Julie! We're so sorry that your tail is at less than optimal floof. We still think you look quite stunning, even if you are "summerized."

Big hugs!

You´re the Fluffy Diva!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Oh oh! What did they do to your tail!? Was it very badly matted that they had to remove that much fur?
But it's okay, it'll be fluffilicious before you know it. Yeah, and squishing that bow was definitely a good idea.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I hope you don't mind but I really don't think it is bad at all. Was it possible that it was really matted inside the fur? I think it looks quite good!

The purple bow looked lovely against your white fur!

ABBY said...

The tail may not be as flufficious as you'd like but you are so beautiful after your spa treatment.


Mariodacat said...

Gasp! How could they ruin your bootiful floofy tail! It will grow back tho - I think! You are still gorgeous tho. I'd be upset too if someone did that to me.


We think you'll be floof-a-licous again soon.

Don't worry Julie - I am sure you can rock any look!
