Butched Updated

Chase Fluffy
I butched the lion kitty today. Since it has started to warm up, I know she will be shedding that coat like crazy so I decided to get a jump on it. I put her in the bathtub with me (no water, just a place to contain the hair) and I used scissors, laid her on her back and went to town....she is much smaller now but looks a bit butched....cat fur never looks good when it is cut and it is even worse when you use scissors. I just didn't feel like dealing with the clippers and the scissors are much faster and she is used to them. I ended up covered in hair but fortunately I was wearing clothes that were going in the wash anyhow.

She pretty much purred through the whole ordeal...she was just thrilled to have me holding her and she is comfortable on her back because I put her on her back all the time in my lap. Hope it doesn't get too cold again or she will have to huddle in that bed of hers to stay warm because that snow coat she was wearing is GONE!!!!!

I warned you that she looked awful

Looking pissed but really looks younger too

PUNK ROCK KITTY!! She is still super furry so I don't know if you are going to totally avoid the hair but I highly doubt she will freeze her butt off.

LMAO...she looks pissed! Is she a Maine Coon cat? She is beautiful.

Yep she is at least partly maine coon and she really isn't pissed, just can't figure out why I am on the floor if I am not planning on petting her (since I was trying to get her photo).

J only really saw her yesterday and was like "why didn't you just use the clippers on her" since she is so chopped up...but she prefers the scissors, and it will grow so fast that it doesn't really matter. I can see some spots where I need to do it more....
