Sassy Julie

Julie has been ‘acting up’ a bit these last few days but not in the standard way, by chasing or swatting at the others.  Here’s his way of messing with Gus – he turtles up under this little stool so that he can’t come up and bite him on the back.   It takes some squeezing to do it, the thing is only about a foot across.

He used it this evening for this, leaving Gus rubbing his chin against the post in frustration.

Then after messing with Gus, he decided to get into the pictures of Calla by sprawling in front and rolling about in the foreground.

She wasn’t that annoyed – she even got up and put her nose right into his tail fluff.  He really didn’t know what to think about that.

A grooming shot of Julie putting the bitey on his paw.

There’s some other grooming news.  I did another round of chopping at Gus’ fur, taking out another large mat and shortening the back parts generally.  He was pretty grumpy about it, naturally, but the shorter length is keeping further mats down.

  2. Watching him wedge himself into Turtle position must be a gas!

    LOL! They’re so resourceful! My Jake used to get terribly matted & I bought one of those groomers designed like a haircutter…it has a razor in it so you have to be very careful with it but you comb from the skin out & it removes the mats.

      I bought a clipper set and it can get the mats at the skin with the bare unit. If you put the ‘comb’ attachment on then it kind of cuts it short but not bare. If there are any mats, the combs don’t work well as the teeth stick in the mat.

      I’ve used little scissors to cut out mats too but there you have to be careful you don’t get any skin.


  4. Julie’s feeling fiesty lately huh? Cutie pie! Wedged in there does not look comfy! I love that Calla sniffed his tail! Checking for a place to bite are you pretty girl? MOL


  5. Poor Gus, having to squeeze himself into safety.


    • Oldcat says:

      That’s Julius doing the squeezing.

      He could always just beat up Gus, as Julie is not an old cat like Gus and a bit larger, but Julie is just too polite. But watching him “accidentally” sit in a spot that Gus can’t get at him and act all innocent is very funny.

    I love when they eat their feet.
