Shadow is such a sweet kitty. I wish we could have him inside (stupid allergies).
Occasionally he (and the others) are allowed into my office for cuddles and petting, but they don’t get any further (although Socks tried to escape into the dining room Tuesday afternoon). Tuesday evening, though, Shadow came in for cockle burr removal therapy. Poor thing had a bunch of cockle burrs stuck in his tail. I tried just pulling them out, but that wasn’t working real well, so then I resorted to the brush. But pulling turned out to be more effective, so I ended up pulling the rest of them out and then brushing the remaining few stickers from his tail.
This is the biggest reason why we didn’t want a long-hair kitty when we embarked on the Great Kitten Hunt over the summer, but Shadow is such a sweet, lovey guy that I can’t imagine not having him (even if he is relegated to the great outdoors). Still, I miss the days when I had lap kitties. 🙂
