For some reason, my fur on my back got a mat. Then that mat got a mat and formed a bigger mat. Then that mat got another mat. Pretty soon, I had a big ball of wadded fur on my back that looked like a big handle. I don't allow ANY human physical contact, so it just kept getting bigger. Mommy wanted to take me to get it removed, but I am basically a wild animal that can't be picked up and put into the carrier. At least not with some serious time and effort. Then my mat got so bad that Mommy was too embarrassed to take me. I know that sounds terrible. Finally, she realized I was suffering and needed to see the doctor, no matter how hard it was.
And it was hard. It took forever to get me caught. But finally Daddy caught me and threw me in a box. When Mommy was carrying the box full of me, she said, "Butters, oh my God! You smell horrible!" I rode in the car next to Mouse, and he was like..."Dude, seriously!" But I can't help it if I have odors! I was TERRIFIED all day.
The vet made me feel sleepy, and when I woke up, my handle was all gone. My fur had been washed and brushed. I was still scared, but excited by the sensation of shorter nails and a normal coat.
When I got home, I trotted all over the house and showed everyone my new look. Every cat wanted to sniff the new me. Mommy says I look so handsome!
When Daddy got home, he said I sure did get a better haircut than Mouse did. Ha! That will teach Mouse about teasing me about my formerly smelly self!
I am so happy and excited, but I must rest and sleep some more. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my handle-free life.

Glad you feel better. Sometimes it's nice to have a day at the spa.
Have a great day.

Wow, what an adventure! You must feel extremely handsome with your new haircut and good smells!
Awww, you're so handsome Butters! My mom can empathize with your mom- our elderly dog refuses to be brushed and it's a horrible ordeal to get her in the car these days. Mom needed help from the vet and the vet's groomer but she was embarrassed, too. But once she was able to get our dog there and groomed, our dog Sophie was so happy to have clean shiney fur! Enjoy your make-over, Butters!
Bet you feel a lot better!
Aw! I'm so glad you got that haircut! I got my whole body shaved once because of mats (and I'm short-haired!). But it felt soooo good when it was done and the mats were gone!
