When I trimmed Nora 2 weeks ago with scissors it came out all choppy looking. I got tired of seeing it that way. So today I asked hubby to use his electric trimmer to even it out. So I find the shortest piece I could and fit it on the trimmer. Ok all set up and away we go. I turn that thing on and it is LOUD! Poor Nora she hated it. And for all that trouble only got a very little bit of hair off anyways. Her hair was shorter than the shortest blade fitting. Well I shut the thing off and held her she calmed down and purred. Then I put it all away and got them some vegie heart treats from bb and got a great pic of Nora and Ruby eating. Nora was lying down eating hers I just couldn't resist a pic of that. Spoilt little girl. She was like yeah I am over it I am cool. Life is good.
I may go get an osler especially for pets. Hopefully it is quieter. I have to wait and see how Nora turns out tho. If she is an english angora she is on the small side. Well they get from 4 lbs to 7 lbs.
Ruby looks bigger than Nora cause all of her hair. Ruby's hair is 3 inches long. The breeder told me the longer she keeps it the better her mane will be and she will keep it as she matures and ages. Cool. She hasn't shed it out yet. And the whole body of hair is 3 inches long all over her.
I trimmed her bottom side with scissors cause it got long again and was collecting everything from litter to hay. I did Nora's the other day.
OH boy thunder again Yippee we get rain nearly every day here.
