sheep shorn Benjamin

Posted by Picasa

well, here he is...shorn and soft. mama says he's extra cuddly, probably because he's a little cold. if he'd put up with a sweater (or maybe a pink bathrobe), he'd be toasty!

mama says that ben's extra soft. she had to promise him that she wouldn't rub against his fur, even though it feels so good. it's kind of irritating to ben.

mama hasn't been on to write because life has been hectic and hard. she's been working and sleeping. feeding us and cuddling us, too.

last night, she built a fire (not really that cold, but since there isn't a fireplace in the new place, she wants to use this one as much as she can. a fake fireplace will work, but it is--after all--fake). i sat on one leg, and ben sat on the other. all three of us were toasty warm.

the packing will start next weekend. neither mama nor dad wants to do the work, but it's one of those chores that doesn't go away just because they want it to. i'm glad i don't have opposable thumbs! in fact, i'll stay under the bed while they pack.

Oh, doesn't he just look precious? Tell your mom she'll need to take lots of naps between the packing up!

Benjamin! I thought you would look much smaller without all yer fur! You are a big boy. I hope your move goes smoothly.

Benjamin you look very soft! I'm sure you'll get lots of extra cuddles since you don't have as much fur as you did before. Personally, I think fur is over-rated! :)

Ooo ... Ben, you look so plump! I wonder what Cocoa Puff would look like without fur?

oh Ben, your furs look so luxurious! The paws look floofy. I think you look handsome with or without furs!
My sister is just a mean cat, so mom has no way of helping her stay clean with all the hissing and clawing.
