Fun with the Furminator

on June 20, 2010

Having heard a couple of my knitting group colleagues raving about this cat grooming device, I took the plunge and bought one on eBay, in the hope that the hairy one, who hates being groomed and will do anything to avoid it, will take to it and adopt a sleeker, less hairy look.

And the result? Well after 10 minutes of his Hairiness screeching like a banshee loudly enough to wake the dead, struggling, wriggling, lashing out, digging his claws into my leg and snapping at me, I was bleeding in 3 places, half deafened and shaking like a leaf, my clothes were covered in cat hair, the yard was full of clumps of cat hair floating gently in the breeze, and half of the neighbours were probably debating whether to phone Social Services or the RSPCA. The unharmed and slightly less hairy one had a brief sulk among the flowerpots and then settled into a sunny spot by the shed to plot his revenge.

I think it went well…. I may even develop this into a form of performance art.
