Memory Lane - Getting Brushed and Purring video

I've told you many times that Praline loved to be combed and brushed.  Up until the last year when she was hurting, I could hold up the comb or brush and she would literally come running and start purring.  That was our special bonding time.  I had a comb beside my bed and beside my couch.  First thing in the morning, Praline would jump on my bed and we'd have a grooming session before I ever got out of the bed.  At night, after supper, she'd jump up beside me on the couch for a longer grooming session.  The background noise you hear in this video is her actual purr!  The funny thing was that the brushing would make her look so skinny and then all of a sudden, her fur would "poof" back out!  Enjoy.

What a little purring machine she was! Mom says she will never forget that time she heard her purring on the other end of the phone.

Aw, I was sad to hear about Sweet Praline. I think I helped with an auction to benefit her. She was blessed to have you as her wonderful mommy and you'll see her again someday.

Oh, how cute is that. What a fun ritual you had.

Bowie always liked his back rubs. Unfortunately, he wouldn't hold still long enough to be combed, but he did like having me rub/pet his back and his scratch around his ears.
