Thankful Tuesday

Three scary stories this week with three happy endings. Mao & Annie are home safe and sound and Latte got a good bill of health from the VET!

We'll keep all the beans and woofies on the purr and prayer blog in our thoughts until they get a happy story.

Mommy wants me to ask this, Bendrix is upset that I gave in. Can anyone recommend a good brush for my furs? I hate hate hate being brushed and I remember some of you suggested a specific brush from the Simply Siamese site, but mommy can't remember which. I'd better go rein in Bendrix. He is headed toward the back of the couch and we all know what that means....squirt gun!

Way to go, Bendrix! Make your displeasure known!

I escaped into the basement TWICE last night and made mommy say very bad words!

We are very happy that Mao and Annie are back home, and that Latte's blood tests came back okay!

No advice on the brush, since we don't get brushed.

I do not have a furminator yet, but I would very much like to get one. I hear they are very good for your coat and get all the shedding out.

Gasp! You don't like being brushed! Oh Hendrix/Bendrix you don't know what you are missing - it can be a wonderful experience. I would let my Mum brush me all day, but she seems to tire after about 20 minutes, sigh....

I have heard that the Furminator is good, I don't have it yet though. My Mum uses a plastic brush that has bristles that you can retract. It makes cleaning the brush very easy and it seems to do a good job. She had to buy two because I like to put one between my paws and brush my cheeks while she brushes the rest of me : )

We have heard good things about the furminator, but we haven't gotten one yet. All of us love the zoom groom - but only if Dad is brushing us. Never ever when The Mom does it. heh

I have one of those "flea" like combs and I like it! I also have a slicker brush that has spines like a beans brush which I like too, but it is a pain to get the hair out of! Momma went and got a Zoom groom last week and it is terrible on me, I have bunny soft, shortish fur, it catches in my coat and pulls. Empress LOVES it and her coat is super short with no undercoat and it works great!

PB & J said...

We're so glad that everyone is home, safe and well again. The power of purrs is very strong!

We love our zoom and groom, it's the only one we all agree on (though mommy really likes the "Furminator").

You tell'em, Bendrix! My mom uses a small stiff bristled brush that has rounded bristles, so as not to scratch my skin..I like it!

William said...

My favorite is the cat slicker, but I like just about anything because I like getting brushed. Really I think you just have to try different ones until you find one you like--if you wound up with about a million of them, maybe you could donate the rejected ones to a shelter or something. THAT would counteract some of Bendrix's mischief!

Zoom grooms gives you a good massage, and fleas combs feel nice too - even though I don't have fleas.

Parker said...

I think for kitties who don't like to be brushed it's the zoom groom. The Furminator is the best at getting the job done, but if you don't like being groomed, you probably won't like it much!

Sunny's Mommy said...

All our cats loved to be brushed. Some just not for very long though.

Your Mom could try a flea comb, it should go through your furs easily with no tugging and without the feeling any pressure. Our cats like that too, but prefer a brush.

I suggest that your Mom try brushing you for just a little bit, doing your head and cheeks. Most cats LOVE that. Then she can try working her way down to your body.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I LOVE the Zoom Groom. It makes me purry and oh so happy. Meowmy tries the furminator on Chase and it kind of gets stuck on his sides a bit so he doesn't love it but puts up with it. I highly suggest the Zoom Groom!

Thanks for purring with me to make me feel better!

Yes - happy endings! Very good. I hate to be brushed or combed, the staff has given up on it, hahahahaha.
I wanted to thank you for coming to Miss Peach's tea party on board the cruise ship. It was great having you and we hope you enjoyed it!
