It was a couple of days ago I was enjoying a quiet wash when she said, "What's that on your side?" and poked me. I looked and could see I had brushed up against something. There was a clump of fur that was sort of gummed together.
"I'll get to it," I assured her. I don't like to mess with my washing routine. But when I did I didn't like the texture on my tongue so I left it.
Yesterday mum noticed it again and asked me if I would like her to fix it. I said I was perfectly happy to wait for the hairs to grow out. Did she listen? She did not.
I was snoozing when I heard this terrible snippety-snip sound. I leapt up and saw the pair of nail scissors in one of mum's hands and my fur in the other. "You're cutting me to pieces!"
"I was removing the lump of fur. Look! It's all gone." She held up my poor fur in the clump it had become.
"I am bald there now. All the cats will laugh at me," I grumbled.
"You are not. I was very careful to only trim where I had to. I don't think anyone could see where I did it.".
We both examined my clump but can't work out what I had picked up. Maybe I am better off without it.
On an unrelated note - when is too old to climb curtains? I was up them last night and mum says I am too old to be doing that but if it's still funny I should still do it I reckon.

Poor Toby. If your Mum insists of giving you a fur cut, then she has to cut the other side too. Or you look uneven.
Purrsonally I think you're never too old to climb curtains. It sounds like good exercise.
Oh no! I didn't like it the first time. Mum says it hardly shows at all and I am not really balded - but it wasn't her fur that did get cut.
I'm sorry little man. ( I'm sure your not so little) mom brush me in my sleep, she says I'm her biggest shedder......so I can relate.
I don't think you're ever too old. We don't have curtains, only blinds here.
