Hi, Percy here. Today is National Hairball Awareness Day so we have a
We don't want to be mean but Jan is a flop at creating anything. So of course she agreed to make a Hairball Creature for today. It was simple. All she had to do was use the new FURminator on us kitties and make a creature from our fur. Simple, right? Ha!
She collected our fur in a bag and tried to make something. The next day she tried again and again. And this is what she made. (Don't laugh. **snicker** You'll hurt her feelings.)
See poor Sam over there with a "you're joking" look on his face, trying to distance himself from Jan's "art," as I go sauntering by and ... what is that???
Jan says it's supposed to be a cat or dog sitting on its butt. It has two front legs but no matter what she does, they just won't show in the picture.
The first time Jan got up from the floor to download the photos onto the computer, she knocked over the metal background. It flattened her creature. She put its head and arms back on and sat it back up. The second time she got up, she knocked over the metal background and flattened it a second time. The third time she got up -- no, don't run ahead of me here. That time I flattened it with the metal background. Sorry, it was an accident. **snicker**
By then the creature's fur was a hard mass with no arms and a crooked head. So Jan combed out all the fur and separated it back into a loose mass. And then she decided to make the creature lay down and look pathetic.
ShaggyThis is Jan's submission. If any of you can figure out what it is, please clue us in. Even Jan has no idea what it's supposed to be, but its name is Shaggy.
Despite all the setbacks, Jan had some fun making this
Cast of creature contributors -
1) Cameron, 6-year old tuxedo, absolutely loves to be brushed, so he was the main contributor to the fur pile.

3) Cyndi, a fluffy 7-year-old calico.
4) Percy, a handsome 6-year-old black & gray tabby.
