Close shave

                   b1-use.jpg     b2-use.jpg

Every year or so, the knots in our Persian cat, Beckham, get away from us, and he has to be shaved. What you see above, believe it or not, is the same cat photographed on the same day — one pre- and one post-shearing. (Yes, on the left he is on the kitchen counter. Don’t worry, we washed it down; no danger of cat-scratch fever here, with apologies to Ted Nugent.)

    Oops! I bow to your superior feline knowledge, Stephanie. Thanks for pointing out the mistake. Whatever Beckham is, he is sure UGLY with all his fur shaved off!

    I can’t quit laughing at the shaved photo! How do you shave a cat anyway? My cat would claw my face off before allowing that!

    That’s why we pay somebody to shave him. It’s well worth the money. During a previous shave, he bit through the groomer’s fingernail! We don’t use that groomer anymore.
