Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
What a beautiful cat Jon! And her expression - trying to be aloof, but underneath one can see her yearning to be loved. Like that song 'Memories' from the musical 'Cats'.

Long-haired cats do indeed need a lot of brushing, or their fur gets tangled in knots, which are best cut off with scissors if a cat has been feral and got her fur in a bit of a mess.

I used to show my British Shorthair cat Gussie, and all the owners at the GCCF shows would sit and natter while the judging was going on. Those with longhairs had an impressive array of tools for preparing their cats' coats. (The longhairs were officially called Persian.)

Luckily my Gussie only needed a quick brush and smooth-over. He was jet black with deep orange eyes, and he won several Firsts, finishing with Premier medal (highest award for a neuter)
