You just KNOW the second the cat walks in that this will be a "special" session.

Vinnie (the noisy one, and my last remaining cat from the Gang of Four) has bad fur. Bad as in "Naughty, wicked, evil, bad" ... the long outer coat is lovely and soft. The thick very fine slightly kinky inner coat is lovely and soft. Together, they will mat into a hard, semi-rigid armorlike mass with the slightest provocation.

Brushing her does nothing to prevent this.
Combing the mats only seems to encourage them to spawn elsewhere. And she hates the whole process.

So yesterday I was finally blessed with a simultaneous disgust at the cat, a spare couple hours, and the desire to DO something, so I took her in to have her annual shave-down.

They also found that (sneaky little brat) she had three ingrown claws, which I usually find and clip before they can cut into the pad.

The little beast is MUCH more active now, partly because without that armor she's not as warm, and partly because it kept her from moving as freely as she wanted. So she's gone into 'climb the human' mode again.
