Today’s play session was cut short a lot. I had brought out the “Da Bird” because the other toy has almost no feathers left. A lot of playtime was before I brought the camera out, and they did a lot of the “drag the end away bending the pole into a U shape.
Davout lost his caution during the play and I got hold of him for the first time in a while. I felt some pretty big mats that after a little thought decided had to come out.
So I grabbed him again and brought out the clippers. Davout is much more scared of the clippers than Rhea, and is super wriggly. He doesn’t scratch, but hisses his soft hiss a lot. The big wriggles do make me afraid I will nip a part I don’t want to.
I think I got most of the bad ones, but he’s pretty shaggy overall. He probably needs a real overall trim by professionals. He’s looking vaguely yak-like in places.
He was pretty disturbed afterward but a few minutes chill-down and some dehydrated chicken treats got him back in his usual mood. But I decided to not take more pictures today.
