Why did you do this to me?

We had a pet groomer who makes house calls come and work her magic on our female cat, Huxley. We wanted a sort of full-body mohawk thing. Check out the little sweetie:

It was quite an ordeal, with lots of attempted escapes and a bit of cat-screaming, which it one of the worst sounds known to man. She was, however, an angel compared to Toby, our male cat, who became possessed by a demon as soon as his nails were trimmed. I have a nice gash on my hand as a result. In a bizarre sequence of events, Huxley, who is basically Toby's sworn enemy, ran into the room, stood up on her hind legs and swatted at the nice grooming lady in some gallant sort of rescue attempt. I didn't know she cared. Needless to say, we gave up on Toby, though I'm sure he's a little jealous of Huxley now that all is said and done.

Huxley seems quite happy with her summer do, and now looks like a wisp of a thing. This is a cat who was 19 lbs. as recently as six months ago, now down to 12 lbs. on the doctor's recommendation. An animal communicator once told us that she was proud of her heft, and likened her to a Chinese warrior. I'm sorry we had to take that from her, but she is fucking bad-ass in a different way now.

You're cat is looking like some kind of Dr. Moreau experiment. Take her out on a leash and be the Pied Piper of Williamsburg.

Poor baby!
