Verdi Gets a Beauty Treatment
Posted by Francesca
Sharkey and I saw Sanu, one of the housekeepers, grabbing Verdi, the cat, and taking him down into the laundry room. We decided to follow and see what was going on. We wondered if it was the dreaded bath time. We almost felt sorry for the fluffy feline. However, he was only down there for a beauty treatment.
1 Sharkey, it looks like we're not the only ones who get groomed in the basement. Sanu has Verdi in her grips.
2 It's the comb! - but Verdi doesn't seem to mind.
3 Look how he's shedding! If we saved all that hair and spun it into yarn, we could knit Martha a really soft sweater.
4 Now it's time to wash his face.
5 He seems to be enjoying this.
6 Oh no! Not the cotton swab in the ears!
7 Verdi doesn't even seem to mind the ear cleaner. Perhaps it's because cats have really keen hearing - they can even rotate their ears 180 degrees, so I guess it's good practice to keep them clean.
8 Now Sanu has the bristle brush. Sharkey, did you know that If a cat is frightened, the hair stands up evenly all over their body? Good idea to keep the knots at bay.
9 Hmm... Now Verdi's whiskers are pointed forward and fanned out, meaning that he's tense! Perhaps he doesn't like us watching! Let's give him some privacy so that he can enjoy his little beauty treatment.
