Since we inherited my grandfather's cat last summer we now have FOUR very, very long haired white furry beasts. The amount of cat hair around here is insane.
Insane I tell you.
And for some reason grandpa's cat is a horrible shedder.
No matter how much I brush her there is cat hair always coming off of her.
So today I sheared* half the herd.
Yes, that is cat hair from only HALF the herd.
It's a three foot long pile.
Have mercy on me!
*I just sit there with the scissors and carefully cut off as much hair as I quickly can with a wriggling, complaining cat held in one hand. They look like they've met Edward Scissorhands for a few days because of how choppy it looks. I've yet to find a better way to do it since their hair is too much like cotton candy for clippers.
Did you know that most groomers will not groom cats without anesthesia? No thanks.
