furs

Hi!  I got furminated!


Mama got this furminator yesterday acause I haf been shedding so much and presented her wif a big hairball.  She used it on me right away.  I loved it!  It felt so good to be combed, plus I love whenever mama touches me.  She gotted a lot of my undercoat off!  I feel lighter already.

Thanks for all your advice about our food situation.  Mama has tried so many brands of grain free stinky goodness, she thinks she gotted them all.  There are some that we will eat, but nowhere near what we were eating before.  She called the v-e-t to ask for advice.  The v-e-t said to measure how much we are eating for one day, then bring us in for a weight check.  So that stinks, we will haf to go in the PTUs.  At least we know there will be no poking or blood stealing!  The v-e-t wants to see if Kit is still gaining.  She says it is okay if I haf lost a little acause I need to.  The v-e-t is concerned, so we are going in.  

We are still loving our ESS!  We play on it alla time.  Kit likes to sleep there.

Mama tries to furminate us, also, but Andy is the only one that will let her use it on him.....but just for a short time before he starts protesting!!!!!!!!!

One or both of us has had hairballs this summer, in spite of the fact that the mom brushes up frequently, so she's thinking of trying a furminator. They seem to really work well.

Your ESS looks fun...We used to have one but the mom gave it away 'cause she said we weren't using it. Well, that was then....We think we deserve a second chance at one!

Well of course the vet wants you to come in...something to do with more green papers! Hey, remember, health food doesn't have all the fillers and junk so we actually do eat less of it to get full. Hey, hide!!!

We are sure the furminator will make you feel more comfy in the hot weather. Mum does Hannah's back but she won't let her do her tummy so she strokes that with her fingers and if she feels a knot starting she gets her evil little scissors out and does a snip!!

Yes, it is good to get all that nasty loose fur off. You'll feel so much better.

Oh no! Not the dreaded PTU! Even weight checks are terribly traumatic. Do get sum extra snuggles and treats for this!

Gemini loves to be furminated except that Ichiro tends to jump on her while the Woman is furminating her. She does not like that at all!

The FURminator is awesome! Not so awesome is having to go to the vet's to get weighed. Bleagh.

Not our furs! Our Mumsy has a thing about brusing our furs out too. We don't really like it. Okay, the v-e-t wants to see you, but...do you want to see the v-e-t? We are so happy and want Kit to just keep getting better.

We have a Furminator too but, in general, we prefer the Zoom Groom.

Too bad that the search for the right foods has to include going back to the vet...

Mom knows I don't like furminating! Plus as strange as it is she doesn't get hardly any furrs off of me when she brushes me, and since I don't like it she doesn't do it to me, now Mr Jinx and Ping wowo do those boys shed.
Awww shucks we are sorry you've got to go to the Vet -- we think he shouldn't charge you for a weight check!

When one of the Cats-Who-Came-Before was real sick, my Mommeh bought a baby scale and weighed Cricket about once a week to make sure he was not losing weight. Now she uses it to weigh us about once a month just to make sure we are both maintaining a healthy weight.

I would pee on the v-e-t for making me come in to get weighed! - Miles

Purrs!

The Furiminator is a fanatastic tool that really helps with the shedding problem. It must be magic to feel so well and work at getting rid of loose furs.
Athena purring that the v-e-t can provide some much needed reassurance about your new food routine.

I myself have never been furminated. Does it feel good? I love to be brushed; if it's anything like that, I will love it. That's a nice pile of furz! I like to leave the Human a nice furball once in awhile, just to keep her on her toes.

Sorry you has to go into your PTUs :-( Hope it's a real quick trip!
