First California Outdoor Grooming
I groomed our 19 year old cat this evening, outside. There was almost no wind, so her combed hair didn't blow far in the wind. I filled up an entire tissue box full of 19yr old American Short Haired fur. It took over an hour. Dr Desert Flower and I bought a package of Curad surgical face masks at Target, which helped to keep the fur out of my lunch and face. A trio of purple finches were annoyed that I was grooming a potential predator near the hummingbird feeders from which they were determined ot drink nectar... and a dozen or so neighbors on the footpath behind our home noticed me in gauntleted gloves, long sleeves (it was over 90F today), long pants, and a face mask combing and petting / spanking our old cat. No one has called the ASPCA yet.... I will be sad when she eventually expires.
