This is a photo of Tobius. I call him Mr. Prince because he prances around like he is “the Prince” I took this photo because a few people I know on another photo site want to know what a lion cut looks like. They still find it interesting that a cat would get a haircut. But this big breed has so much fur that it has to be brushed and cared for; Unfortunately I have a cat that refuses to be tamed enough for me to brush him and he gets matted so badly that within a yr. I have to have him groomed. That requires putting him to sleep. Unlike some cats he is not cooperative in any way and they say they cannot just sedate a cat unless it calms him enough that he doesn’t fight. Because if he still fights while sedated he could have a heart attack. So this bad boy has to be put to sleep to get his yearly hair cut. We had a scare this year; the first one and he is now 4 yrs. old. He was not himself for 9 days after the sedation. We prayed and prayed and finally he started playing again and jumping up on things again. I had begun to think he would be like a little baby forever.
I don’t know what to do about next year. Just pray that it doesn’t effect him inadvertantly again. “And pray”
