Easy (Well, EasiER) Like Sunday

Thankies so furry much, effurykitty, for alla yur suggestions and advice and purrs about our big Alpha Bruther Brainball! You really helped put Momma's mind at ease. She felt so bad about what poor Brainball was goin through -- he was a furry unhappy boy!

Brainball's doin bettur with his baldy spot today -- it's still annoyin him, but he's less stressed out today than he was yesterday. His skin is nice and pink, not red, so that's good. The goop you see is where Momma put bag balm on him after she and Daddy cutted out his big mat.



Brainball's still grumpy cuz of his shaved spot, but he's been doin his Alpha Cat Patrols and lookin out the windows at the snow we gotted last night.



Momma and Daddy keep tellin him he's a Good Ol' Brainball and to hang in there, that his furs will grow back soon.



Here's Dorydoo on Momma's bookieshelves, sayin, Hang in there, Brainball... we love you!



Here's me, sayin the same thing. Brainball's such a great bruther, and it makes the rest of us Ballicai sad when he's feelin out of sorts. Cuz he's our Fearless Leadur in addishun to our wunnerful big bruther.



And here's Marilyn, blowin Brainball a kissie from the laundry basket (one of her new favrit spots fur nappin).

Oh MaoMao, everytime I see you, I see Caesar's muzzle twin. That makes me happy and sad *sniff* sorrry

I am pleased that BB is doing well now. That shavie spot is huge, wowie. I would be major grumpy if mommie shaved me. I do not have a lot of furs but I get lots of blankies to keep me warmie.

purrs, Princess

Brainball,the baldspot will not affect your ability to perform your Mancat duties!!!The fur will grow back. But make your beans feel guilty and get more treats and scritches !! :)

Brainball is very lucky to have such supportive kitties around! Do not worry Brainball, the worst is over, now your furs will grow back and everything will be normal again!

You don't have to be the best-dressed man on the block to still be macho, Brainball! Glad you're coping a little better today!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I am very glad to hear the Brainball is doing better! YEAH.

Moki said...

It's ok Brainball. It's a small spot. You should have seen my side after they shaved me for my ultrasound. I felt completely nude. Trust me it will grow back!!!

P.S.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and sending your well wishes, purrs and headbutts!

Bubbles said...

Ooooh, if Brainball's skin is good and pink, not red and irritated, then probably it felt cold and strange and that is what bothering him!

We cats are very sensitive...;)

Karen Jo said...

I am very glad that Brainball is less grumpy today. I don't blame him for hissing at the people after they cut out his mat. It must feel very strange to him. Don't worry, Brainball, all your handsome floofiness will grow back.

Parker said...

I'm glad that BB is less stressed. It's not easy adjusting to a new "doo"!

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

MaoMao, we are glad Brainball is feeling more like himself ... we guess he got some treat medicines to help him out. We think it is so awesome the way you, Dorydoo and Marilyn look up to him, all that support is great medicine too! Momma is grinning ear to ear just thinking about all of that love :)

Brainball, don't you worry about that tiny spot, you still are the biggest mancat of Ballicus!!!

And I am so glad 4 of you have a great easier Sunday today~!! That is so so great~!!!!

Daisy said...

I am very glad to know that Brainball is doing better today. What an ordeal he went through! Maybe it hurt his dignity a tiny bit, too.

Lux said...

I'm so glad to hear that Brainball's doing better - I'm sure he's happy all his brothers & sisters are all around him!

Tyler said...

Oh Brainball, we're sorry that you're having a hard time of it. We hope your furs grow back quickly. We hope you are spoiled terribly for your troubles.

Scout said...

Brainball is lucky that you all love him so much even if he is a little out of sorts. Hopefully he will be back to his old ways soon!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Eric and Flynn said...

We're glad Brainball is doing better today. Maybe he wuz telling you that you'd stolen enuff of his furrs and don't go finking of stealing anymore.

Irishcoda said...

Brainball, we're so glad to hear that you're feeling better and Amber is *very* relieved to hear that Bean clippers will work on felines and she doesn't have to be completely shaved!

Radcliff, Allie, Luna, & Ozzie said...

We suspect Brainball's shaved spot is itching as the hair grows back in. If so, the spot (and the kittie) should start feeling better in a day or two.

Try scratching the area if he is still having problems.

And treats, lots of treats. :-)

Artsy Catsy said...

Mao Mao, thank you for sharing the happy news that Brainball is not quite so out of sorts today. Dorydoo, you look like you're trying to give Brainball a laser treatment with those glowing eyes!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Wow, that was a big matt! We're glad Brainball is feeling better.

Jimmy Joe said...

You guys are such good buddies to your big alpha brother. And Dorydoo and Marilyn are looking especially pretty this Sunday!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Kimo & Sabi said...

We are purrrin fer da furs to grow back soon - and less itchy!

Gretchen said...

I'm sorry Brainball had to have his backside shaved. Oh, that must tingle. You know we kitties feel every hair when their out of place, so I imagine he's pretty uncomfortable right now. Poor big fella. I'm blowin' ya a kiss, too. You're my bigbrocuz, too. And you got SNOW! Wow. Everybody back is getting snow.

That should make your mom and dad bean's walks even prettier.

Hugsabunches you all. Feel better Brainball....G

We are glad that Brainball is doing better today. Hopefully in a few days, he will have forgotten all about it.

Princess said...

Well... it is tuesday.
I certainly hope that Brainball did not go on a destructive rampage that all of you are recovering from... or something... because of this shaving of the fur and the indignity of it all.

hrrrumpf and purrs

China Cat said...

Oh, Brainball, I certainly hope that you are feeling better today. Willow and I both have short fur so have never had any matting. You, however, still look very handsome, even with your mat removal spot!

Purrrrrrrs, China Cat

Moki said...

Hi Brainball,

How are you doing today? Feeling any better about your baldspot?

goldenshade said...

Brainball, my soul brudda, I hear ya. I am next in line for the shave. My problem is right between my front paws, my mancatly chest, and the outside of my thighs.

I just want it over with, all these pics of shaved kitties is making me nervous.
