A Little Less Floof!

If you live in the north end of Tacoma and downwind from our house, there's a very good chance you spotted tufts of Charlene and Wylla floof wafting in the air yesterday afternoon.

I took both girls out to the back deck for a serious brushing with the Furminator, and removed a shocking amount of hair. It was too windy to gather it all so I just let it go, but the first time I Furminated Charlene, I collected a gallon-sized ziplock bagful of hair.  I'm guessing I brushed out that much, if not more, of just her alone. Her coat is much denser than Wylla's, but Wylla still had plenty to shed.

They both enjoyed the brushing at first, but got a little restless near the end when a few rowdy crows began taunting them from the power lines above.

The girls both feel so silky and soft and look so pretty! Though they appear a little grumpy in the photos below, I think they are pretty happy to be wearing their spring jackets instead of their winter coats!

  1. The trouble I have furminating my tabby is that she LOVES it so much she wants to rub her face all over the furminator instead of letting me use it. :) I have to keep her head busy with scritches & treats and go in batches - luckily she doesn't have much floof on her.

  4. While they did enjoy their lloooonnngg beauty session - these grumpy faces are aimed at those pesky crows that Mom would let kittens chase.

  5. They do look a little disgruntled. But definitely like they're going to forgive you by dinnertime or sooner. Mine don't love the Furminator, but it is an excellent investment. Nothing better!

  6. If anyone is in central Va and hears loud howlng. its Big Boy Bob getting his winter fur coat out with a wide tooth comb. He's not in pain, just hates being confined on my lap. (Gentle smiles) Gail

  7. Speaking of flying fur, I've read that birds use it for their nests.

  8. The girls do look a little put out, but also very lovely.

    Spenser and Keith only need furminating once in a while, but Maren is quite plush and I comb her every week. She tolerates it pretty well, and loves to rub her chin on the teeth of the comb. Everyone enjoys the catnip party I throw afterward. :)))

    Charlene looks less floofy but Wylla actually looks floofier! I have a medium-long hair girlie cat who loves the Furminator. My short-haired orange male cat likes the way it feels, and is fine with it until he actually sees it. Then he freaks and tries to bite it/me. So in order to Furminate him, I have to keep his head busy so he doesn't look back.

  10. They look quite lovely, sleek, and content.

  11. I always let the cat hair blow to the wind, so the birds can use it for nesting material.

  12. The girls looks lovely, so glad their winter coats have been taken care of.

  13. We had a cloudy sky here in the Midwest today so I suspect the floof flyover has arrived. Even Wylla and Bean floof can't make that journey in just one day! Long live the floof!

  17. I have shorthair tabbies. My girl kitten is too wiggly and high-energy for good Furminating—she gets wild-eyed and bitey— but my boy LOVES it. I can Furminate him for twenty solid minutes and the second I pause he's like, "Mommy, why did you stop Furminating me??"
