The "Line" Cut

A friend of mine is from Oklahoma and has a slight accent. She has cats and when she lived in the south she would take them to the groomers and have what is called a "Line Cut". To her a line cut is when all of the fur hanging down below the cat's tummy is taken off (because it gets matted or snarled).

When she moved to Chicago, the fur on one of the cats got all tangled up during the move so she took it in for a line cut.

She was quite surprised when she heard the price as it was twice as much as it was down south. She confirmed with the groomer that he understood what a line cut was and he said "yes, I know what a LION cut is." It seems her accent came out sounding like LION, not LINE and this is how her cat was returned to her. (see photos below)

She cried for a week ... but not as much as the
cat. It was November in Chicago and the cat needed all the fur it had.

Getting "the look" from one seriously ticked off cat: Priceless!
