I think I've found my new calling in life...

First, the back story. We own a large cat. We adopted Sampson (aka: Sammy) when he was large and we thought it was cute. Never mind the fact that Joseph thought I was seriously demented for adopting a cat that looked identical to Frisco, our cat that had just died. But that's another story.

Over the past several years Sammy has seemed to grow even larger.
Remember this?

Because of his size, he has a little trouble cleaning a few areas on his body. Namely his back. He can't reach. So his hair has been getting really matted and gross. We called the vet and set up an appt. to have him shaved, but then discovered it would cost $100, so we cancelled the appt.

Then yesterday I just couldn't take it anymore. I told Joseph to grab a towel, wrap Sammy in it, and I'd give him a haircut.

I don't know about you, but I think he looks great!

If anyone wants to procure my services, you know how to reach me!
