Shaved Animals

Daily Dose

Spring is here. Time to beat your rugs and shave your animals.

Please don’t shave your rugs and beat your animals you dyslexic sadist.

Inspired by a Buzzfeed post, here’s a bunch of lowly beasts in various states of hairlessness. It’s kind of like Awful Dog Haircuts, but now all of God’s creatures have received the $6 Supercuts special.

Shame knows all species.

(Yes, yes...I know this is a waxed beast rather than a shaved beast, but it's still sickening and hilarious.)

Most are cats shaved like that when they have a truly horrible extreme matting situation and being shaved is the only option. (Notice that all but one of the cats are Persians or other types of long haired cats.) They don't shave the head, paws or tip of the tail because there's no matting in those appendages. This is most commonly done in the late spring/early summer when the shedding of the winter coat goes horribly awry. Through vigorous combing, brushing and clipping on a daily basis I have barely escaped having to do that with my own Persian.

Or when you're trying to avoid a horrible matting situation. My mom raised Persians when I was growing up (I know, deplorable, reprehensible, etc.), and every May was cat-shearing season at the farm. Cats hate to be shaved. They skulk around all humiliated. They know exactly how ridiculous they look. Watching 20 of them all trying for the same three cubbyholes to hide their shame was HILARIOUS.

About a week ago I told some friends "every time I turn around, I see Gavon half-naked somewhere." And just as I forgot about it, I get to the bottom of this post and see a half-naked Gavon again. New drinking game: every time I see a half-naked Gavon, everyone takes a shot!

I was just showing my husband some of these pictures & he feels sorry for the cats. He just kept saying, "No one should do that!" I guess the cats do look rather demoralized.
