Chase's First Cut

I know I already posted before and after pics of her on Facebook but I wanted to get a blog post written about it too before I forgot and it ended up on the pile of "to do" in my life.

This was her first cut for the season, I was waiting for the weather to warm up so she wouldn't be cold outside during the day. It is amazing how much lighter she is just without all that hair. She had so much hair on the floor at the groomers. She got a shower while she was there too and she still smells like the shampoo...which is nice. Now if only I could do something about the fish breath...haha.

All the rest of the cuts will be faster than this one since she will already have short hair. She will stay cut until it gets cold here again...it is actually so much better to keep her this way in the summer. She doesn't shed, or get hairballs, which means I don't have to clean up hairballs. And she stays cooler which is always a plus since it is very hot and humid here and she spends a fair amount of time in our backyard (enclosed so she can't get out).

She did really well at the groomers...purred through most of it because I always stay to help and make her feel comfortable. She doesn't like the underarm parts since she has to be contorted into a weird position and she is also not too thrilled with the rear end being clipped but I think that is just an instinctual thing...

So here she is...before and after...

She did have a lot of fur.

I know...sometimes it looks like I took her head and put it on another animal...

Oh and tons of fur...I think she lost 2 lbs in just fur...
