Meet Isis, my female Persian cat. She’s not the usual peke-faced Persian, without that scrunched up face usually associated with the breed. But nevertheless, she’d always win in cat shows, eventually winning enough points to become a champion. Inevitably, I had her spayed, since it’s the responsible and humane thing to do for responsible and humane pet owners. It’s actually healthier for the animal, and true enough, Isis got healthier, she got heavier, and her fur just got thicker and fluffier than ever. Actually, she got so ploofy that she ended up with double the hair she originally had. Therefore, the point of this post. We weren’t prepared for the grooming requirements for such long hair (bad pet owners!) Eventually she ended up with huge balls of matted hair everywhere on her body! It got so bad that when we brought her in for professional grooming, they said there was no choice but to shave off all her hair except the hair on her head and her tail. Her crowning glory shaved off! It was heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time. When we saw her for the first time, we didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. It was called the “lion cut”. Presenting: my shaved pussy.
