It’s spring, and time to think of the cats! (It’s always time to think of the cats.) And that means keeping them cool.
Butter, who’s been featured here regularly, is an extremely long-haired rescue cat, a flame-point Himalayan, who owns reader Stephen Q. Muth. Last week, in view of the impending hot weather, Butter got a “lion cut,” in which most of the body is shaved save the head and tip of the tail, allowing the cats to remain cool while not losing their dignity. Here are photos of the event—and a MOVIE!
Butter about to get clipped by Liz, his groomer:
Butter (after). Note the puffball on the tail for added panache:
Butter: The movie! Notice that there are four songs. Two are enigmatic: do you get the classical reference? Notice, too, that Butter first emerges with a squirrel tail, which is then quickly shaved to a lion tail.
