So, my mom tried to shave the cat...

Hahaha. Let's get that out of the way first off. But in all seriousness-

 

The cat has more hair than anything else on earth. I seriously spent 2 hours brushing him one day and I didn't make a dent. Seriously, it's more like wool.

 

Scisors won't work on this thing. You need an industrial shaver.

 

The last time my mom attempted it, we realized that the cat is terrified of the sound of the industrial shaver. Have you ever seen a cat jump five feet straight up? It's entertaining, to say the least.

 

So today she finally got sig of his ~5 pounds of extra hair, and enlisted the help of my sister to hold him while she shaved him. He didn't like that much, so they put a sock over his head to calm him down.

 

Have you ever seen a cat with a sock on it's head trying to get away from something? He wasn't going very fast so I can hardly call it running, even so, he bumped into the garbage cans twice before managing to run into the bathroom, where he bumped into the wall, and followed that until he bumped into the corner, where he sat, utterly defeated.

 

We decided that he'd had enough and took the sock off his head and let him go free. He looks even more rediculous now.

I'd like to thank everyone who participated and voted for an awesome competition.

Oh, and the "scardey-cat" joke would be too obvious, so don't anyone say it.

PETA don't count for anything. I don't think anyone takes them seriously. And, sometimes I wonder if they take themselves seriously based on some of the stuff I've seen them produce.

Embarassed cats are always hilarious. My car has found a way to beat it in her mind though. Shes old. 19 years old and when she goes in the catbox everythin doesnt go smoothly and occasionally when this happens we'll hear her yowling about it. Quite hilarious. So the first few times she would come out we would still be laughing and she'd hide under a bed for a couple hours. 

 

Now after this happens she sprints out of the box and into the closest room and comes walking out slowly and calmly like nothing happened. pretty funny stuff.

I think sedation before shaving is your only option at this point.

I could try getting him high first... If it didn't solve the orrigional problem, it would still be funny to watch him run around with a sock on his head...

Hah! My friend has the same thing going on. It's an itty-bitty fun-sized ewok! I love him to death he's so cute. But they really do need to shave him. And they've tried, to little avail.

There isn't anything about shaving a cat that isn't awesome. Except for the claws and teeth.

Your friend has too much fur?

 

I don't think he or she would like it if he or she knew you were calling him or her an ewok.

Because before he was our cat, he was nature's cat, and nature never bothered to trim him. As for the sock thing, he doesn't mind it. My sister likes to put a sock on his head and he just lays there purring.

 

As for the picture, give me a minute, I have to find the cat and the camera. No promises on the camera though, my sister might have it right now.
