Hairy Jowls

You might want to run for cover! It's another post about my cats...

Dev and I took these pictures actually a couple weeks ago, but I was looking at them on Facebook today and they gave me a laugh, so I thought I'd post them.

My cat Hairy is, honestly, like the furriest thing I've ever had to deal with. When she grooms herself, I feel so sorry for her because she gets so overwhelmed with her over-abundance of fur. Once, while she was grooming, I saw fur sticking out of her mouth, so I pulled it, and I gave myself chills deep within my body, because she started gagging and this huge glop of fur came out of her throat! I screamed. Sometimes I still think I can never be clean again.

So back to her jowls. She's got them. Only it's not loose skin or fat, it's fur. Coming out of her armpits, to be exact. So a couple weeks ago Dev and I decided she needed a trim, and she looks nice, really - I cut it in layers so she looks uber stylish. Furry jowls, begone!



I wanted to cut more fur off, but Dev said I would compromise the very essence that is Hairy, or something, so I finally conceded in defeat when she refused to give me back the scissors. But still. All in all, I'd say it was a successful trim. If anyone needs a haircut, lemme know.

Oh, and PS: My coworker just made a comment on how huge Hairy looks, and I kind of got offended. She's not fat. She's just...really, really fluffy. Besides, the camera adds ten pounds. So please do not judge my sans-jowls baby girl!

love, love LOVE the photo of you and Dev. actually Nils and I were discussing giving Happy a haircut. I brush her but she still sheds all over his house. and it's getting warmer. wanna fly out here?

anyway, that makes you a regular hairdresser now.

it's me, t said...

holy crap brie, you better get me a copy of the best movie ever right NOW or i'm going to have to poop on your burp! please you loserface!!!!

KC Elaine said...

haha, I read your PS. you know, I was kinda offended when you thought happy was fat too. :) but no hard feelings

brie said...

Oh Ky, if I had 200ish bucks I'd fly out in a heartbeat! But it's certainly something to save up for, isn't it? Wouldn't that be so much fun?! And giving Happy a haircut...is she pretty docile? Because Hairy, in general, is really calm and chill, so she didn't mind too much, but if I were to have cut Bobbi's fur, she would have tried to maul me. Yeah, I get the shedding too...I don't know what I'm going to do with Hairy as it gets warmer...I'm contemplating getting her shaved, but I don't want to desecrate her self-esteem or give her trauma issues. :) So we'll see.

Oops I forgot -
Now I totally get that you got offended when I told you Happy was huge! ;) It's just tender, you know? No one wants to hear their cat has eating issues (like us). Except your cat, well, DOES. :)

T-Race-

I'll see what I can do. I'm sure it's quite easy, but I have to ask Brandon if he's DVD burning savvy. Oh, and, the price? Sexual favors to moi!!!

Devon said...

Yeah - I feel good about that evening..

The masks might be a tad confusing for people but that just adds to the mystery of it all. Obviously.

Loves ya

I know this is horrible and wrong, considering...but I really, really wish I was as skinny as you.

brie said...

Oh no! That is not the purpose of my blog...I would never want anyone to look at a picture and be triggered. I'm sorry. And for all of you reading this, please know that I'm undergoing more medical tests (this morning, actually) and am on another meal plan to put on some weight.

brie said...

Dev, lol. I DID forget to mention what the masks are for. And for any of you wondering...Dev was a bit under the weather, and seeing as Cade had recently gotten home from the hospital, we thought it wise to not risk him getting her germies!! Ah Dev, you're so considerate! (I just put on the mask because I thought it was cool.)

I think Hairy is the cutest thing EVER. She's so fluffy! :)

Emily said...

And I am glad you are on a meal plan to help you put on some weight... I know it'll be hard, but you're on your way to better health. ((hugs))

Happy is so docile it's a wonder she survived 10 years of outdoor life. she's got no fight in her, just purring! you saw the spider cat picture, yes? I wasn't kidding when I said she never stopped purring.

dude, if you came out that would be SO MUCH FUN!!!! think about it. :) we could split yr ticket
