Sister Saturday with Zoe on Combing Rituals

sister saturday zoe 09092017
Hello everyone and welcome to Sister Saturday and the Land of the Long Floof. Yes, that’s me, I’ve got tons of long fluff and my belly floof is long and curly. I also have the floofiest LadyCat tail here. Yes, I’m fine with Brother Simon having the floofiest BoyCat tail.

Sometimes these long furs can be what you might call high maintenance.  Sometimes these furs get tangled and sometimes these furs get mats.  When that happens who ya gonna call?  Floof Busters?  Nope, not me, I’m going to call on the Dad.  The Dad is my number one helper when it comes to keeping my furs orderly.

Oh yes, it’s a nightly ritual too.  Every night before lights out the Dad and I meet in the living room and he gives me a through combining from top to bottom, yes, including the bottom.  When I say we meet in the living room I’m serious.  All that Dad has to do is say “Zoe, it’s time”, and if I’m not already there waiting I head right there for my combing.  I love it too, even though sometimes I grumble a bit if the Dad is working on getting a mat out.  But let me tell you, I sleep so much better after I get combed.

How about you, do you have any special rituals that you enjoy?  I hope you all enjoy a wonderful Saturday and I’ll be seeing you soon!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I don’t really have a ritual like you do, Zoe, but my human does keep me well groomed, and I love it. Well, except when it involves getting wet!

I love such a ritual… I have short fur, but if I can eat the brush after the brushing I would like that too ;o)

Hmpf. My human forces me to get brushed every now and then. And worst of all, she’s started to cut part of my fur. The one covering my most private areas. Apparently, she doesn’t like that my faeces get sometimes stuck there. Bah.

Zoe, that is great that you like that brushing. It is tough having all those thick furs. What a great Dad you have to take such good care of you. You all take care. Looks like the hurricane is going to miss us mostly. Have a great day.

That is a sweet ritual. Sammy likes to be brushed in the bathroom, he has a special brush I keep in there.

Enjoying the combing is a win. Nice to keep those mats out.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Love your floof Zoe! Oh how I wish my kitties liked to be brushed, or even tolerated it!
Leo has a night time ritual, he HAS to get in the way of bed straightening and when sheets get flipped up in the air, he wants to be under it! Daddy says he wants to be in the way, I say he just wants his nightly daddy attention. (’cause the rest of the day, you know, he’s a momma’s boy through and through!)

Considering your beautiful floofiness, it is a good thing you are cooperative about combing!

We definitely have rituals we enjoy…breakfast and dinner. Giulietta should get brushed like that everyday, but she does more than grumble…meaning bandaids are usually required afterwards. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

I love that ritual! One of my rituals is at 5pm Dad goes into the living room and says “Gentlemen, come in for the announcement” that means it’s time to eat………… other ritual, is every morning I lay on the kitchen chair by my Dad and turn over to show him my ample belleh. When I do that, he says “Cody you are pulling out all the stops!” MOL! xoxo

Oh, I wish Samantha cooperated so well with getting brushed! She fidgets and fusses and makes it as challenging as possible. You are a good girl, Zoe!

Your Dad is an impressive groomer. Eating, walking, treat balls and tooth brushing (yuck) are it for us.

I have a ritual with Mom every morning. After she dishes up the treats, breakfast and pours her coffee, she goes to the computer. But before she even touches it, she give me a good combing. Lots of times I want her to keep doing it throughout the morning, then she gets a back scratcher out and scratches me all over while she does her thing on the computer…one handed.

We dont like being combed or brushed, so our favrit rituals are bedtime and First Breakfast. Bedtime means TBT gets in bed an we walk all around and over him deciding where to spend the night. We love First Breakfast because we are all hungry of course…

It’s fantastic that you and your Dad have your combing ritual. I’m sure it helps you keep your furs beautiful. I often sit on the bathroom counter while Mom takes her shower. Then when she’d dried & dressed she give me cuddles.

We love that you and Dad have such a special ritual, Zoe. And it sure does keep your furs looking beauteous!

Zoe, my mom has a metal comb that other favorite brother gave as a present for Admiral. Admiral did not like her long furs combed at all. But she loved brushing. Mom uses that comb in the morning on my long to medium furs and I LOVE it. Our ritual is each morning after she gets her face on and her own hair combed (I snoopervise by monorailing on the tub) she gets the comb out and I lay there in total bliss while getting combed.

I like your ritual and that you like to get brushed, Zoe. I have rituals, but no brush is involved in any of them 😀 Double Pawkiss 🙂 <3
