Meep


This is Meep with his lion cut.  He gets these periodically because he is a very floofy cat and he gets terrible mats and tangles.  He doesn't groom himself for some reason and daily brushings just can't keep up with the mats that he develops.


This is how Meep looks most of the time.  Here he is with his favorite toy, Pookie.  He also has a favorite pillow, which he kisses every night before going to sleep on it.  Meep loves to investigate paper bags.  Meep is about four years old and FIV+, which means he can only live with other FIV+ cats.  He was originally adopted as a brother and playmate for Buzzerbee, who went to the Bridge a while ago.  They loved each other very much and Meep got rather lonely without Buzz.  Now he has a new brother and playmate, Twizzler, who just moved in recently.  I'll be writing more about Twizzler tomorrow.

Meep doesn't like the process of getting his lion cut, but he really likes it once it's done.  He runs around the house and plays a whole lot more.  You can see how he's giving the scratching post a workout.

                                     Meep loves to be trimmed like a lion.
                                     It gets rid of the mats and tangles so tryin'.
                                         He scratches the post
                                         That he likes the most,
                                     Then throws back his head and roars like a lion.

We are continuing prayers for you sister in law. Family stuff is important! We are thrilled that she is coming home.

We love Meep, and this limerick is very sweet! What a cool (literally) haircut! we are sure that is very liberating. We have such short hairs we rarely get a hairball.

purrrs to you KJ

Meep is such a handsome kitty. I am so glad that Twizzler came to live with him because he was very sad when he lost his brother.

That is really cool. I didn't think any cat would want their hairs cut. I am glad Meep is not alone now. Let me know when your sister in law wants Lucky. And as for the photo with the boy, there was nothing on his chin. That's just Lucky doing her job of cleaning ALL of a face.

Thank you so very much Karen Jo for the sweet limerick about Meep! You really did capture his "purr-sonality" after his lion-cut! Thank you again!
