This is funny that this post was brought up... I have finally made the decision to shave my youngest, Oliver. He is 9 months old and he is a tiger when I try to brush him! I don't know what it is, it's been worse since I've gotten him fixed. I've checked him and he's healed wonderfully, he doesnt mind having his stomach rubbed or scratched, but get the brush away from him! Last week he actually bit me! That was it.. he's being shaved. He has this funny habit of when I am brushing my oldest, Big Boy, who LOVES to be brushed ('specially his tummy!
) he'll go up and start cleaning BB's face. It's so cute. Well, the other day after the biting incident he walked up to BB while I was brushing him and instead of cleaning him, he bit his ear! I don't know if he's mad that BB likes it or what, but none the less, Mr. O is getting the big Lion Cut. My husband won't let me shave BB because it's his cat and he thinks he'll look funny (BB is pure white), he's threatened to shave my little girl, Serena, if I do
Serena is a shaded silver and very petite. She WOULD look funny shaved!
My Mother in Law raises persians (all 3 of mine are from her) and she keeps all of her breeders shaved... I love the way they feel afterwards! When she started doing it I almost cried when I saw these beautiful coats gone, but I've actually grown to like them!
