Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of suede

Personal (Krypton)
For years, I wished I had one of those fancy-ass hairless cats. Today, I realized, "Hey, I got some clippers! Why don't I just make one!?"


Before

After

Really, this is my ordinary, non-hairless cat Calypso. At 11 years old, she's stopped grooming herself as much as before, and her hair had gotten really matted. I tried cutting the mats out with scissors, but she fights like the devil. We finally took her to the vet, had her sedated, and shaved her bald.

I'm going to try to do a better job of keeping her brushed from now on. Of course, she fights like the devil when I do that too. Still, Calypso has been with me through multiple moves, jobs, and girlfriends. The least I can do is keep her looking stylish in her old age.

This, thankfully, has never happened. Although, I'm not letting her read your comment in case she gets any ideas.

Aw, poor Calypso! At least she still has a little bit of fluff to call her own. XD

*big hugs to Calypso* Has she forgiven you yet? Hopefully she won't be too cold this winter :-(
