Poor, poor kitty (and other stuff)



I asked them to take more hair off of her than usual without shaving her. But my poor little Putty Tat has that "shaved" look anyway, and she's slinking around the house slowly and sadly like I've somehow managed to have her identity trimmed off, with a look on her face that says "Thanks a lot, lady." Now she looks more like Smiegel from Lord of the Rings and I hope she'll find it in her little cat heart to forgive me.

On another note: I'm excited that the Today show has another segment on fall centerpieces and that sounds so lame but I am! And I'm recording it! Last year, my Thanksgiving Dinner revolved around a centerpiece I made, from what else, but a demonstration I taped on the Today show. I'm thinking that maybe this will turn out to be a new Thanksgiving tradition, if I like what I see. But it's Martha Stewart and anything I try to replicate of hers never turns out quite as nice. Sidenote: have you ever noticed how mean Martha is to her staff on the air on her own show? She once yelled at her producer on the air for having a star guest on making fish with her, when the star hated fish. Yelled at them about not doing enough research on the guest. I felt really bad for the producer, that's something that probably should happen in the recap meeting in the board room after the show, like it does in news. That's embarrassing enough. Anyway, the new thing this year is putting a small vase INSIDE a pumpkin or gourd or squash and putting the flowers in the little vase, so it looks like the gourd is actually the "vase". It looks awesome. That's what I'm gonna do. Thanks Martha! I like you sometimes, even though you're mean!

Poor kitty ! I had to do this with our black Kim, she also was full of knots although we brush her regularily. After the vet had shaved her she looked like if the moth had been in her furr ! Especially on her bottom and around the neck. Took quite some time until it looked normal again ! And she is an "ordinary" cat (she is on my catblog)
