Growing Kitties

Oh No! I think Mom has really lost it this time. I can't believe Mom thinks she can actually do this! I looked once and then I looked again and it's true!




I think Mom is trying to grow kitties from my fur! She has a whole can full of this stuff! She brushes me every day and sometimes two to three times a day to collect this stuff.



I've checked it out very carefully and I don't care what she says, you can't grow a kitty from all of the floof, no matter how much I leave around!

Maybe if I ignore her, she will give up. I thought she would have more intelligence than that, seeing that she has that advanced degree. I guess it goes to show that cats are definitely smarter than the beans. (At least I have a nice, shiny coat from that brushing!)

Update: Many of you have been asking about the task of brushing me. I LOVE it! It is bonding time for my mom and me. All she has to do is hold up the comb and/or brush and I come straight to her and begin purring. The only time I get aggravated is if I have some mats that she has to work on getting out. I even lay on my back in her lap for her to clip my toe nails.

I can't believe you let your mum brush you! No way is my mum allowed to do that to me. But then, you do have much longer floofs than I do.

Your furs look very nice Praline! We don't have that poofy coat but when mommy trims the spoos she takes their furs and puts it around the garden to keep the groundhogs out! Wow, groundhogs are afraid of furs?!!=^Y^=Setzer

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Wow, Praline, you clearly produce a lot of fluff! This fascinates us, as we have no fur!

Does your mom like to play with sticks and string? Maybe she is saving your fur to be spun into a special yarn for her to make something.

You DO have very floofy furs, Praline! Our Mom doesn't save it to grow new kitties, but she does brush us every day. Grayson gets brushed even more, but mostly because he loves it so much!!

goldenshade said...

Wow! That's a lot of floof! The PM throws our fluff in the field so the birds can use it to make nests. That would be a pretty cosy nest!

Eric and Flynn said...

Your brushed furrs look very byootyful. Mum brushes my furrs every day and says there's enough to make another Eric.

Please don't tell us your mommie saves your furs in baggies! Our mom does that. Our Himmie sister that "came before us" had over 20 baggies stuffed with her furs that mom combed out. This was over a 2-3 year span. She only kept one bag though. You are even more beautiful after your brushing, if that is possible.

Great to hear you enjoy your brushing so much. Chica andPumuckl really hate it and I am happy they are short-hairs and we just need to do some brushing in spring :-)

Daisy said...

Maybe you could knit a fancy sweater from your extra furs!

TT said...

Mommy Bean thoughted your Mom was going to makes a fur sweater for herself with your furs. (Don't laughs, she saw these two folks over in the UK that used woofie fur to make sweaters for themselves.)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Sweet Praline, Jan wants to know if you'd like to swap homes with Rusty? Perhaps your mom could get him to enjoy brushing/bonding time.

jenianddean said...

We make Mom and Dad work for the brushing by staying just inches away from the brush.

Gretchen and Mike said...

Oh, I love it. I'm still laughing. It's like making little Tribbles on Star Trek.

You do look very pretty, though. I can tell your mom bean takes really good care of your long floofy furs.

Hugs....Gretchen

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

woweee - that last picture of you...lookit all that looooong fluff you've got there. gorgeous!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

pee ess: sadly, we hate brushes. all 6 of us. 4 of us are medium hair kitties and could really use some brushing, but if we see a brush, we bite it.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Oh, Praline -- I'm so glad you enjoy your brushing! I do, too. I just adore it, especially when Mom uses the Zoom Groom. It feels just like a massage!

You look just gorgeous in your pictures, dear! And how cute, the idea of growing kitties from your floof *giggle*!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Lux said...

Being brushed is lots of fun. I dunno, magic happens - maybe that floof *will turn into kittens. You never know.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Yes Praline, using your furs will work keeping moles away too! Your mommy will have to replace it after awhile but all they need is to smell a predator and they will move on. Mommy only had one garden and the stupid groundhogs were diggin' holes all over it, so she trimmed both spoos before their baths and their smelly furs were placed all around the garden and in the holes,(with a stick), they left for good!! The beans even had to put the furs around the big sand mound, (our disposal system)cause if that gets damaged it could cost BIG bucks!! You see, another big plus for furkids!!=^Y^=Setzer

Mickey said...

Mmmm, Sadie and I love brushings...mom don't save our furs tho, maybe if yoo mom is succesful growing a kitty from yoor furs (it would be a clone, wouldn't it) mom will start keeping ours.~Speedy

GRRRETA said...

What a coincidence! My mommy saves my fur too...I know because I've seen little piles of it under the bed and sofa. It's not bad housekeeping...she's growing kitties.

Bhu is NOT a fan of brushing! We go to Josie, the groomer, once a month and he is happier with her. I think he wants to maintain his dominance over the humans, so he won't let us brush him. But he seems to like Josie and she likes him. So, it's good. Bhu sez: "Yah, Josie iz nicez!! Me luvz her. Me luvz Sweet P MORE." xxoo
