Un-purrcking-believable, I saw the picture on the left last week on my girlfriend’s facebook. A cat shaved to look like a lion. At first I was like WTF is this, because I had not seen this yet. But it turned out it was not a single incident, there a numerous pictures of cats looking like this. Dude, seriously? Yup, seriously!
The story behind the picture on the left is that the shave-job was an accident. The owner went in for a line-cut, the groomer misheard and thought she meant a LION-cut. Other sources say this story is a hoax and that the owner did this for cosmetic reasons.
I don’t know the owner so I do not know what the real motivation was… But the cat’s facial expression says it all. This kitty is NOT happy with the messed up hairdo.
It is said that a lion-cut can be helpful for long haired cats who’s coat is all tangled and full of knots. But I keep on thinking, if this is really the reason, why not just a full shave job… This is one smelly affair!
I do agree that it looks pretty bad-ass, having your own little lion sleeping on your lap, but lets not forget the most important thing: the cat’s wellbeing. Of all these pictures of cats shaved like lions, I still have yet to find a single one where the cat looks happy.
