A friend of mine is from Oklahoma and
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
(because it gets matted or snarled).
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.
quite surprised when she heard the
price as it was twice as much as it was
She confirmed with the groomer
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.
Gas in car to go to groomers; $4.50
Cat car carrier: $32.99
Grooming fee: $80.00
Getting "the look" from one seriously
off cat: Priceless!
