Audreybut I have not forgotten to have a give-away because of my 200th follower. First off, "welcome" to all the new followers and thank you for following along with Just Cats. I guess you have noticed it is a bit more than Just Cats but you'd better love cats to spend time here and maybe even enjoy a good cup of tea.
With the beautiful Fall weather here I thought it would be nice to give away a warm and cozy scarf. There is a little shop in our town called The Wool Growers
and I do a lot of shopping there. I saw this
and thought of YOU. It is machine washable and dryer safe. It would go beautiful with blue, rose, peach or purple. It is soft and would be gorgeous with a jacket.
Of course, there will be a little something for your cat along with this scarf but we will keep that as a surprise for kitty.
So go ahead...dazzle me with a comment *grin* and become a follower if you have been holding back. That's all it takes to get me to throw your name in the hat. Good Luck everyone. Draw is Tuesday at 6pm.
Bree"Bet you thought that warm & cozy give-away was me...right!"
I have been asked many times by people who are about to adopt a cat "Do long-haired cats shed more than short-haired cats?"
I can answer that, no problem.
Long-haired cats shed long hair...short-haired cats shed short hair. In the end, you just have lots of hair to vacuum up whether it is short or long. I personally do not see any difference.
Shedding is related to the light-dark cycle. Cats shed in the spring to rid themselves of the winter coat and they shed in the fall to prepare for the thicker, warmer coat.
I always try to comb the cats more often in the Fall (that includes the dog, too) so their coats are in good condition for the winter. The winter coat is naturally going to be thicker so prepare to groom more and purchase a comb to rid the bloomers of tangles.
When I want to really relax I comb my cats. You can lose yourself in it and time will pass quickly. That is, if the cat enjoys it. If not, it can be quite a chore. Buy a proper comb so you do not pull the hair while grooming. The comb should have wide teeth. Always start at the head and work your way to the tail. Hopefully, kitty will be very relaxed half way through and it will be enjoyable for both of you.
