He looks small here, and his fur seems dark because he’s wet. Also, the photo needs more light. Shady would be embarrassed if he knew I showed him so humbled. I had to beg him to let me take the photo.
This is Shady’s second year to need a bath and trim. What a polite boy he is during his bath! He doesn’t scratch or bite me, although he lets me know he’d rather be somewhere else.
Now that the bath and fur trim is finished, it’s time for me to clean up the bathroom floor and the carpet where I trimmed him. He’s been licking his wet fur for half an hour. I just checked him, and he’s almost dry, and he purred when I stroke his clean coat of fur.
