Toby's Diary

I have a furry face

Apparently my mum didn't know that!

You'll be thinking that of course I have a furry face, just like you do. We are gorgeous cats with fur all over and whiskers to boot. But I'll explain.

It is definitely getting much warmer here so my winter coat is too hot for me. Mum was stroking me last night and she commented that she is getting handfuls of fluff off me. I am in moulting mode. She reached into my toy box and oh the ecstasy out came my brush.

I was extremely happy being brushed but have you noticed - when fur is attached to you it looks like one sort - sleek and clearly coloured - but when it comes off it looks more fluffy and grey? I was quite intrigued by my fluffy fur si gave it a good sniff.

And that's when my mum looked at me and said, "Toby - you have a furry face" and I looked at her and she realised what she had said! She tried to say that she meant I had loose fur and she didn't want it getting in my eyes or me to swallow it. I let her remove as much as she could.

Anyway I am an extra handsome boy after all that grooming and beginning to feel ready for the season. More fur to go though and we need to make sure plenty of that goes in the carpet to make it smell right!

I'm glad your mom was able to get that extra fur off your face! I loved being brushed too. We got a bunch of snow today, so I better not get rid of my fur quite yet.

I love to be brushed too and the fur comes off my brush Gray but I am Gray and white. I've never given my fur s sniff when it comes off me I wonder what it smells like? Like me Toby you are a very handsome cat but all that grooming must have made you look really good. Just remember grooming from our mums is just as important as the grooming we do ourselves.

One of my mom's friends vacuums her cat with her Dyson, and the cat LOVES IT. My mom has seen it. She looks like she is in ecstasy while being vacuumed. My mom doesn't have a Dyson, so she hasn't tried that with me, but I do enjoy a good brushing. And I love the rubber Zoom Groom too.
