You may be wondering what the paw this is. Well, let me tell you. It's shedding season for me, so Mom's been plucking
PS - I've had a couple of furriends ask if it hurts to be "plucked." It doesn't. See, I have a double coat and a couple of times a year, I shed it. The undercoat (which keeps me insulated) sort of loosens up and works its way toward the outer layer of furs. If you look at me from certain angles, you can see that the furs look different and those are the ones that get "plucked." Mom and Dad think it's super fun to see who can pluck the biggest tuft of furs from my 'tocks. That's the annoying part. All they really need to do is brush me (which I love!), but they say it's not nearly as fun. Whatever. Again, I'm asking: anybody wanna trade Moms?
