Patches can be difficult to work with - she's got claws and she knows how to use them. Most grooming with her requires anesthesia.
However, she's also a shameless whore for attention. The trick seems to be to get her to think that she's getting petted - just petted with clippers, that's all. So she's a little choppy looking, i removed enough hair to make a new cat.
The new dishwasher arrived and was installed today. It's quiet. I'm anxiously awaiting the results of the first load of dishes.
Small things still make me happy.
At some point this week, i've got to clean this house.
