World’s most cooperative cat

It’s getting its paws shaved, surely a most traumatic event for a cat. And yet it couldn’t care less.

    I don’t know that it “couldn’t care less”. Seemed to me it was desperately looking around for help. :p

    The more important question is… why? My cat has *adorable* little tufts between her toes. Keep her little feet a bit warmer on snow. Which we have today. In the middle of March.

      Indeed; why would you shave a cat? They (unlike my hair) are self-maintaining, from what I can tell.

    There is something seriously wrong with that cat.

      Shaving paw-tufts — there is something seriously wrong with that cat-owner.

    And we do this why?

    Probably there’s a lot of variation in catly tolerance. We’ve had d*gs mostly. The one we have now is very patient with us. When she had a messy wound on her rear leg I’d tell her to lie down and play dead – one of her standard tricks. This would put her into an almost trance while I changed her bandage. No fuss no muss.

    My theory, which is mine: kitty epidural.

    I had a Himalayan with a lot of hair between his pads. That hair could get filthy from the litter box so, periodically, I’d clip it. Yes, he’d clean it, after he had walked around and sometimes got on the furniture to wash. It was easier to keep that hair clipped.

      Yeah, Persians and related breeds are notorious for messy or just plain bad potty habits. I might trim toe and butt fur if I was staff to one in order to keep things clean. And of course, periodic full kitty shaving just to keep things sane.

        I trimmed butt fur, too. Had forgotten that.

      bitchy gene maybe- to be fair the cat probably slips on the tiles and slips when it jumps on things if the tufts grow too fluffy.

    Perhaps it just enjoys the good vibrations.
