Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

Hello everyone, I hope your weekend is going good.  So far we’ve been having a really good time.  Please join us for our Saturday NipFest and Silvervine Shuffle!

I don’t know if you remember or not, but for the longest time I didn’t like getting brushed, and the Mom found a brush that I really loved and then, as Brother Brian said, I became a brush hog.   Even with brushing lots each day I still managed to get my share of fur mats.  Well, Dad finally buzzed them out.  I am very happy that Dad isn’t overly fond of a lion cut, so I just got a few spots buzzed out.  Then he bought me my very own comb.  Guess what?  I now love that too, and it addition to lots of brushing each day I also get a daily through combing.  That means no more fur mats, which makes me very happy because those boogers really hurt sometimes.

What about all of you?  Do you like to be brushed?  Do you like to be combed?  Or do you avoid both every chance you get?  Just curious.

I gotta scoot, I just caught a whiff of that Silvervine stuff!  See you next time!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Sister Dolly, you are so pretty. That is a lovely picture of you. We don’t get brushed a lot. Some of us really need to be brushed, like Missy. Mom needs to get busy. Hope all of you have a wonderful week end and stay cool.

I used to love, love, love to be brushed. I would sit there and the harder the better. Bugsy and Knuckles like brushing okay, but they are still at that stage where their attention span is not long enough for a really good burshing.

Have a great weekend.

Mommy is so thankful we are all short fur and only need to be Furminated once every other week to keep our fur in good shape. 🙂
We hope with the new comb, your Dad won’t need to buzz you anymore.
Enjoy your Silverine feast!

We hope you enjoy your silvervine festival today. Hannah loves to be brushed too Dolly and Mum keeps a tiny pair of scissors by her chair so she can snip out any tangles as soon as she finds them.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

M wishes I liked to be brushed – I’m the first cat out of 4 that she’s had that just doesn’t care to be brushed. There is one brush she uses that is okay – for awhile, Forget the furminator – I give her the stink eye every time she gets that thing out. Have a great weekend.

Rusty hates to be brushed more than a few seconds and he has the longest hair. Cameron and Cotton are brush hogs.

Hi, Dolly! We all get our share of brushing around here and we love it. Tinker, not so much. His fur is thick but rarely mats, besides, he can be temperamental about the whole brushing thing, anyway. 🙂

Your brushing looks very good on you, my dear!! xx

Those of us who need to be brushed – Al and Yoko – hate it and it is a fight all the time. Wish we could find a brush we liked. Have a great weekend!

We dont much like brush OR comb, Dolly! We’re all short-hair an TBT rubs our furs with his hand a lot, so we don’t shed much. But we do get slight mats at the bases of our tails an the flea comb is good there. We’ll put up with that fer a few minutes.

We’re still getting used to the brush and comb. We get mats like crazy.

Happy Caturday, Sister Dolly! Oh dear, I hate those gnarly mats, too, and get them like there’s no tomorrow. In fact, I need a major buzzing at this very moment! Maybe Mom should try that comb you’re now liking…

Kisses, CindyLu

You are soooo Purr-ty! and I will tell you that Angel-Kitty nor Hurricane like to be brushed. Hurricane thinks it’s an invitation to play with the brush…perhaps you could give them some pointers…

Kizzie is not too keen on being brushed, but fortunately she is short haired and does not shed very much.

Sister Dolly we are so happy to hear that you are enjoying your brushing and combing and will have no more mats. We all love to be brushed and line up to wait our turn when we see the brush. We have never been combed but we all have short hair so brushing takes care of us. That is a great picture! Hugs and nose kisses

I don’t like the regular brushes but I do like my slicker brush. Funny though, I only like being brushed when I’m outside.

Sister Dollie, I know Admiral LOVED being combed and brushed but me..not so much. I do enjoy combing, I will say that but brushing, well, I kinda sorta walk away while mom tries. The Furn=minator..I tolerate ot to a point. (no pun intended).

Finding the right brush makes all the difference. We love getting brushed and have a ritual every night at bedtime. These days we’re loving the flea/tick comb (preventatively) but care is needed on bony areas.

Hammy here – I LOVE brushies, Rumble likes them sometimes, and only on his terms. That’s good for me cause then I get DOUBLE brushies!!

I’m glad you like being brushed! Banjo will only take 1.5 minutes of brushing… then he bites me… 🙁
