{shedding layers – but gaining a 500th follower!}

28 May

hi friends.  i’ve missed you…

i don’t really have an amazing story to explain my absence as of late… sometimes i randomly take a little time off from blogging to adjust to the ever-changing events life can throw at us… i hope you are enjoying the sun and had a nice kick-off to summer — grilled up some BBQ, got in the pool, graduated, and/or all of the above!

anyway, i’ve been “metaphorically”  shedding layers and such for a few months now… going through a lot of change in A LOT of ways!… but when i started seeing little balls of wadded up hair begin to overtake my carpet, i knew something had to be done…

i love my kitty, callee… she is beautiful.

callee-web

and sweet and squishy and a plethora of other things… and i’m fairly certain she is a norwegian forest cat… i’m not totally sure because she is a rescue and was abandoned {so sad!} and so the pound did not know much about her… but the point is, she has a LOT of hair!!  and it’s that time of year when they begin to shed like crazy – thus the hairballs all over the carpet…

i decided to give my cutie callee a brushing the other day… check it out :

this is what happened after one brushing… i put the scissors in the foto to reference the size… it’s seriously enough fur to make another cat!

or a cat wig…?

calleehair-2

this is how callee looks when i brush her – she just LOVES IT!   rolls and tosses all over the floor, exposing her belly as per usual for most of the time…

“brrreow?!”  which of course, means “more” ?!

one happy and satisfied cat.

hope you had a great weekend!! ALL 500 of you!  I just met my 500th subscriber this weekend!

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU to all of my followers for taking time to subscribe, read, comment, and support food and foto!  i pour so much of my heart and soul into this blog, and your support is the fuel that keeps me inspired.  THANK YOU!!!!

        We have 2 nine year old cats- Hunny and Jelly…my daughters named them actually! They are sooo apart of our family and couldn’t imagine our home without them…amazing creatures indeed!

        p.s. When I was a kid I remember wanting to be a cat!…lol!

        haha when i was a kid, i swore i WAS a cat in a recent previous life… i eat tuna from a can, sleep in the weirdest positions, and i’m extremely independent! hehehe.
