Hello Kitties! It's Holly here for this week's Tortie Tuesday, to let you all in on a big grooming secret: the importance of brushing! Our new kitty friend Veronica was requesting some brush/comb reviews, and we wanted to help her out, so Tybalt and I did a photo shoot for her. Veronica wants kitty reviews in order to raise money for Alley Cat Allies, so please go visit her blog here and let her know if you can help!
Here I am preparing for the photo shoot. As you can see, mommy hasn't invested in a spiffy expensive brush yet. We make do with this standard model. But kitties - the model itself isn't important! You will see what I mean in a moment.
Here mommy is starting to run the brush through my furs. Oh, it feels lovely! And once she runs the brush through my furs a few times, the brush even starts to smell like me . . . and I smell great!
The brushing was going so well I decided to move our little grooming session to the couch. As you can see, my furs are very shiny. Good nutrition (eating lots of crunchies and temptations!) and being properly groomed will give you these sleek and shiny furs as well. If you look closely you can see how my loose furs are being trapped by the brush. This means I won't have to hack a furball up in the hallway at 2 AM! This gives me more time for games of Thundering Herd of Elephants or Whap the Blinds or simply Napping.
This is what I mean . . . this cheap brush still managed to do its job so well and felt so good that I had to give it the bitey! Not only that, but I had to bunnykick it and mommy as well! Oh, how I love to be brushed . . . it is almost as good as a nip-fest!
Also, the TATAs have two new members: Georgia, Mickey's lovely polydactyl tortie sister (like me!) and Starbuck, a young beauty who is a tuxie-tortie! Please come by to welcome them to our association. Also, Starbuck now has her very own bloggie! You can visit her here.
