Its Not Quite Over
The mom felt so guilty about poor Julie, she spent lots of time snuggling up with Julie the first couple days after her cut. She had no idea Julie would have to be shaved, and in some places it was down to the skin. The mom wanted to keep her tail and mane, but those had to be cut too. And the ordeal isn't over. Julie needs to go back in a few weeks so her furs can be evened out properly.
Julie hates being combed, except on her back, but that is where her mats don't form and she doesn't hesitate to let the mom know how she feels about grooming.
Although the mom hopes she can have a lion cut with full tail to match her purrsonality, Julie might wind up with a squirrel cut. Then she could be on kitty TV, hee hee! Its astonishing how little she is! Oui Oui, who isn't a big cat by any means, is a couple inches taller than Julie. It reminds the mom of the line from A Midsummer's Night's Dream, "Though she be but little, she is fierce."
Julie used to go to her old vets to be groomed, but their cat person left so they stopped grooming cats. The next place had to sedate her, which they did without permission, then charged for a vet exam (which Julie had just had at her own vets), the sedation and the grooming. We never went back there.
The mom feels really lucky to have found Julie's new beauty salon. They like cats and know how to handle them without sedation, trauma or drama. Amazingly, they like Julie, and she might even like them!
Here is their card, if it helps anybody out there. (We haven't received anything for saying nice things about them.) Good luck trying to read that card, its enhanced by the mom's photography. We'll put it on the side bar.
Next time Julie and her squeeze, Gabriel, have a party, we bet she's going to stay out of the mosh pit! And there's rumors he could even be a significant other! More to come . . .
