Taming the Mane

About five years ago, we purchased a cat.  She quickly became a part of our family and now....well let's just say that we couldn't live without her.  Our family member is Weezie.  She is our black smoke Persian cat.  She has beautiful long hair that is black tipped and as it gets closer to her skin it turns white.  

We all love Weezie...especially our daughter Sarah.   But since Sarah has been away at college for two years, Weezie has become a "Mommy and Daddy" kitty.  She is always around us and we are definitely her parents.   We love Weezie  BUT hate her shedding all over the house.  We especially despise the floating little tufts of hair that are found under chairs, tables and on the rugs.  Not only does it make our allergies go is just disgusting. 

Thanks to a dear friend, we have remedied the situation.  Weezie now has a spa day about every two months.  Her spa day includes a wonderful bath and a hair cut.  This hair cut is reminiscent of a lion.  She has a wonderful mane around her face with close shaved hair on the body.  She also has a pom pom on her tail with hair on the bottom of her legs that look like Ugg boots.

When Weezie came home after her first spa day, she was a little shy.  But after a little coaxing, she started prancing around the house and has not stopped.  We love our new little is almost like we have a new pet.  For all of you folks that have a long haired cat and the fur balls make you crazy.....try the Lion won't regret it.

  1. We discussed the lion cut for my barn cat that greatly resembles a Maine coon, to save him from the summer heat: I died laughing, though, when I saw your Weezie. I just don't know if I can do that to ours.
