First, let me just say that I was happy to see that someone had started a group for cat lovers! My name is Dawn - and I have 2 "children" that I've raised from kittens. Tigey is my oldest - he'll be 12 years old in July - and Floyd turned 11 this past January. But I suppose I should explain the strange family dynamic we have here. The cats own 2 of us; myself, and my best friend/room mate Melanie (Auntie Mel). Now, while it's true that I have raised them both since they each were kittens - only one of them actually belongs to me. See, Tigey is my cat. And Floyd is Tigey's cat. Of course there is a long story to go with that oddity - but I'll save it for when someone asks about it.
In the meantime, we had an interesting day today! Tigey got his first at-home grooming! He's a Nebelung - so he has long hair that gets matted up every winter. Up until today, I've taken him to a professional groomer to have him get his "Lion Cut" - but he got his own grooming kit for Christmas, so now he can have his hair cuts at home!
All in all, it went pretty well. And it doesn't look half bad either! I am especially proud of his tail, which turned out 100% purrrrfect!!!
Anyway, that's enough for now - I hope this group stays active!! As you all must know, there are soooo many issues and situations that ONLY other cat-people can understand... We need each other!
Take care folks!
