Poor Georgette. She was thrown out of a car in rural Ontario. Taken in by kind people, her neck seems wobbly, if not broken. She spent her first year living in their barn. Now, she's moved into the house, sans the other barn cats. She seems unable to groom herself, and doesn't like being brushed. The knots on her back were terrible. I offered to help out.
The first time, I used the hair clippers. I realized it was a two-person job and waited for her Mommy! After a half hour, she'd had enough and we stopped for the day.
I went back the next day and used my sharp hair scissors. The poor girl has a bit of a mohawk-style haircut, but she looks more comfortable!
