    Ziggy's New Hairdo

    Some of you from FB already know that my Ziggy was having both hairball problems and fluffy butt problems. She kept on throwing up hairballs and/or scooting on my carpet and leaving poopy skid marks because poo would stick to her fluffy butt. Om Monday morning I woke up to both problems. My only real solution was to take her to the groomers for a new haircut. She had a kennel cut on Wed. morning. She was good at first then she started resisting and then she tried to bite. The groomers also check the anal glands and she did have a little bit of liquid that came out. This is the first time that any of my cats have had anal gland problems. I'm sure she feels so much better now. Here are some pictures of her new hairdo.

    Oh, my goodness, Ziggy! What a pretty "tabby" girl you are!

    We hope you will soon be better from the hairball and anal gland problems.

    Ziggy, that's a nice haircut and just the time of year for it. I bet it's a lot easier to clean yourself now.

    Sending kisses.

    Thanks everyone. She does seem much happier now. I think the new haircut makes her look even younger and more kittenish.

    Where is my Ziggy???

    I know it's very laborious keeping a long haired cat looking in tip-top shape, but I just love the way they look. I always said I wanted one with long hair, but all of my RB kitties had short hair. I know I never could have kept one looking as good as they should.

    All of my dogs - past and present - have had long hair - which eventually always got cut. Myndi is the only one who I never gave a short cut to, but she is very easy to keep looking good and her hair doesn't mat hardly at all.

    I still luv ya Ziggy!

    This was new for me---I had no idea they could clip a cat...but Ziggy does look good, and leaving the fluffy tail gives ziggy a such a different look. She might just start a new trend.

    Thanks. I think she does too. I'm really liking her new look. She's also been such a love bug towards me and purring like crazy. Maybe she also loves her new haircut and is thanking me for it.
