If you were a cat, what type of cat would you be?

Hmmnnn. Fun test of the imagination.

Let’s see.

I would be a Domestic Short Hair (DSH) mixed breed. My mix would be 1/4 Japanese Bobtail, 3/4 Siberian. Why this mix? My mother was half Japanese, half American. My father was born and bred in North Dakota, which is our version of Siberia.

I love this description of the Japanese Bobtail.

“It has no mind to hunt for rats and mice but just wants to be carried and stroked by women.” 

Dr. Engelbert Kaempfer

Wait, is that a cat he’s talking about or my last boyfriend?(Just joking!)

Rats? I don't catch rats! Gross!
Rats? I don’t catch rats! Disgusting!

This is a Siberian cat. Can’t you imagine him in the fields of North Dakota?

Confessions of a cat groomer: You get to be the good guy

I get to be the bad guy. You get to be the hero who hands out treats.  File under “reasons cat groomers exist”.

I love this little cat. She USUALLY loves me.

Give me a mani-pedi! Where’s my Fancy Feast!

I like to spoil my kitty clients. They quickly learn that I am at their beck and call. They know they have a right to daily brushing, playtime, baths, mani-pedi’s and their favorite food. It’s in the Kitty Bill of Rights.  What, you haven’t heard of the Kitty Bill of Rights?
