I have to say that I am a little annoyed that Binga gets so prominently featured three days in a row on my blog, but she is the only cat left here who has not been Furminated, and my contest is still running.
Binga is also the one cat here who has a testy relationship with the Furminator. She complains and sometimes gets pretty grouchy about it. She does not think the Furminator is her friend.
In fact, Binga does not like being brushed at all, so this is no surprise. Since she is a short-haired cat, you would think that’s not a big deal. But she has a thick coat and does occasionally cough up some fur, if not a whole (if small) hairball. The funny thing about Furminating Binga is that it does not look like her fur! The Furminator gets out the loose undercoat hair, and Binga’s undercoat is way lighter than the coat you actually see.
It’s one of those amazing but true facts! Even I have a hard time believing it.
There are just a few days left to enter my Furminator contest! You can still guess how long Boodie’s fur pile is until midnight Pacific Time on April 29 — but you have to leave a comment with your guess at the original post. That is the only way your guess will count! Good luck to all the entrants — the winner will be announced on April 30!
