In other Cole related summer news, my cat, Tunch, seems to have developed two pieces of matted hair on both sides of his tail on his back. I really do not know how to describe this, other than it felt like he had gum in his hair and it matted down. I tried repeatedly to brush them out, but the brush would just get stuck. And these mats of hair are super hard to describe other than that they felt like dreadlocks feel- just masses of oil and body hair.
At any rate, like a good West Virginian, my first thought was a home remedy, so I started my day yesterday with a cup of coffee and then I shaved my cat. Well- I partially shaved my cat. I shaved off the back hindquarters around the afflicted area, and took it down far enough to see if there was a rash or sore that might be causing this. There was not.
At any rate, I was wondering if any of you have ever had this problem with your little ones and have some answers. And, btw- you have not lived until you have held down a squirming cat and shaved his back with an electric razor. My cuts and scratches should heal in no time, and I am putting Vitamin E on them.
