I am going to have to get that for Isis!!!! I have tried the beard trimmer and the dog trimmers but her hair is so fine!!! Thanks I will be looking into this!!!
PS, I'm sure Milla still didn't love it.
That sounds like us trying to trim our little dog's nails... Not a pretty scene. And if someone heard what was happening without seeing it, they'd be certain we were killing him. So sad...
O, so much hair. Her ears are back, but at least it looks like she is holding still. I love Milla. Looking forward to her glamour shots.
No, that was Thunderbelly.
I hope Trillian knit her a cat sweater. Honestly, it would be better if you just took 5 minutes each day with a brush. Really, they do get used to it and end up enjoying it.
Oh, we've tried for years.
Just be very careful when shaving down a cat -- their skin is not connected to muscle tissue like a dog's and it's very easy to slice them open with a clipper blade! And remember, always shave WITH the direction of the hair -- if you shave backwards, it'll be surgical short!
The A5's are nice. Heavy and loud, but nice.

I love this story! Hooray Furstival of the Shears!
Coincidentally, we just had our aplacas sheared. (Don't worry, they're pet alpacas, not farmed.)
Now they look a bit silly.
I do like the fuzzy ears on the one on the right :)
Yay! Sometimes specialized tools actually do better the specialized things they are made to do.
Though I do fondly remember an afternoon spent trying to shave her tail...
you could make another cat!
you should have seen it when it all got sucked up into the Dyson -- it looked like 3 gallons of weird soup.
Oster do make really good clippers. Our set are nearly two decades old, and they're still going. We have a standard poodle, and he's very much a once or twice a year clip situation, too. He gets really long and dredded over winter, then when it comes to spring, we clip him really short.
She can't be 'bothered' to groom herself? That's.... unusual for a cat.
Not for Milla. Her nose is so high in the air she bumps into walls.
I imagine she'd make a great character in literature. She thinks she's the queen, but she dresses like a bag lady.
we just shaved luma cos she had picked up a few fleas. much easier to pick them off her and it helps with her hair balls!
Poor kitty. Did she draw blood this time? Did you sculpt her into a Chinese dragon?
she got trillian across the stomach like a samurai but calmed down after that. we did no sculpting, just de-dreding.
We just celebrated the Furstival of the Shears with our Boys, too!
Annual booster jabs and the vet did the job for us this morning. Well, he just shaved off the matted bits so they are rather patchy. Not so fetching, but functional.
Now to remember to *brush* them a bit more. Not so long haired but very thick undercoats.
