Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of suede

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!?"



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.
