Hello. Mia here. Siren is letting me do a post this week because he thinks it's going to get me into trouble. He's a dolt.
I have a complaint. I don't really want to talk about the Mom person ...
... but I need to get this off my chest. I am very happy here. The Mom person takes really good care of me. The outside world and then the shelter were not easy. Here I have everything I need and lots of extras too.
It's just that the Mom person has a thing about grooming. Look at her instruments of torture ...
Siren thinks it's all very interesting, especially that awful muzzle thing. Mom person says she hates to use it but she doesn't have any more blood to donate. Ha! That's cause I bite her when she clips my claws. Siren just cries. Pussy.
At least the claw clipping is only now and then, usually when I start sticking to everything. Then I scream. Since I'm deaf I forget that others can hear me. How do I know what Mom person is saying? I'm a cat! We are psychic and intuitive and empathetic. You people really need to go back to worshipping us.
Anyway - it's the brushing. Oh dear lord, the brushing.
She says she needs to work on the clumps before they become mats - how the hell am I going to get mats? that makes no sense. Mats are to throw up on. And to leave clumps on ...
Mom person really could make better use of her time by vacuuming, look at all the litter around my perfectly placed clump.
But No! She has to groom me. And I hunker down ...
There are no pictures of the flailing and wailing and the biting and hissing. Let's just say I do realize the scene I'm making. I don't enjoy making a scene except it does scare Siren.
I enjoy that part.
When it's over I sulk for a long time. Mom person tries to pet me and give me treats but I ignore her. They need to learn ya know.
Mom person cleans up. She's always making jokes about having enough fur to make another cat.
Isn't she hilarious? Not!
I bet my pal Bozo over at PET PRIDE doesn't mind grooming, dogs are like that. That's why they're not cats.
