It's spring and that means it's time to get Pete, my big black pussycat, shaved for the summer.
He's a rescue and of indeterminate breed, but he's got a ton of hair and despite best attempts to groom him every day - oh the drama when he spies the Furminator - beginning each April there is a frosting of black hair all over my house. That which doesn't shed off him stays behind to make lots of mats.
He's like a husky, feline Bob Marley with tiny dreadlocks and anxiety issues.
Yesterday he went in to The Best Little Cat House to get his annual Go-Go Lion Cut,and when he got home I noticed that they had given him a little Mad Men tie.
Which is appropriate because he got really mad when I started laughing at him.
