Our Roo, or Rasta-Roo of late, after one hour and forty-five minutes is now a smooth backed cat. After some protests and a few sad meows he seems to be feeling much better for the experience.
Still to this day, after almost four years now, we cannot figure out why Roo grows his fur out in dreads. To the best of our knowledge he has not taken to the Rastafarian religion, and so we have to from time to time help him clean up his back. Usually we go through this once or twice a year. Today it took one hour and forty-five minutes, to go from three-quarter covered in dreads to one-quarter inch clean shaved with both Mrs.R and I and an electric clipper each to finally get Roo’s fur cut; and, then evenly smoothed.
Roo is hiding somewhere now, not exactly sure where, but he is looking good. I hope he will forgive us in time to show off his new style for family Christmas.
