cat puke on the flip flop: a true story told in haiku

Cat puke on flip flop.
Message of disgust? Or just
A passing hair ball?

BTW, I was noticing, in the newspaper?  Male runway models, showing summer clothes?  Those dudes seem to shave every damn thing but their faces...chests! legs! hairless and shiny as a little baby (who knows what ELSE they are shaving?)
So, pardon my legs here, I come from...gasp....a different generation, one that finds shaving boring, dull, and confined to the face when I have to....

With this heat, my long haired cat eats as much fur off as she can, then pukes it almost daily. Some system. I try brushing daily too. Spike has been loving your flip flops, and he knew you'd take care of the clean up. To shave or not to shave...your choice and it doesn't make you any less adorable...just like those 4 leggeds.

My son shaves his legs for cycling. It's not for aerodynamics as I once thought. It makes cleaning the wounds easier if you crash.

You're still not quite as hairy as the critters. ;) Very cute haiku.

Oh and thank you, Smalltownme for enlightening. I thought the same about the reason and yet wondered what difference it could possibly make. That makes much more sense.

I am loving the pictures of Spike. He is one b@da$$ looking kitty. You don't mess with the Spike! Penny is a doll but mr. fat cat cracks me up.

And that's just the guys--it's even worse for the girls!

Shaving is way too much work. Don't wanna go there.
Cat puke? It is a common occurrence here...daily. Blah.
