Cute picture, but I'm thinking photoshopped.

Could be photoshopped, but it's showing something I've personally witnessed. Showcats, that are washed regularly, will stand for it (but they won't smile), if you keep the soap and water off their head. That really pisses them off.

when did UT start watermarking images?
Undertoad Saturday Apr 24 02:30 PM
Once in a while I mark one, not watermark but just label it to see where it ends up. It's funny sometimes.

I doubt its photoshopped. We had an old english sheepdog (the Dulux dogs) and every summer we'd cut of all his hair because he was way too hot under it all. When dad had all the body finished but the hair on his head was yet to be done, the poor dog looked comical! Also, you realise that even though they look huge and fluffy, they're actually pretty skinny. god- I loved that dog. He had huge blue eye's and they looked uncanilly like human eyes.....*sigh*....I miss him.

That's done intentionally to long-haired cats. It's called a "line cut" (often mistakenly called a "lion cut" because that's kind of how they come out looking at the end, if the kitty stylist has a sense of humor and leaves a puff on the end of the tail).

I think its photoshopped. If they "switched heads then they also had to modify the shadow of the head. Follow the shadow of the leash through the shadow of the head and something doesn't look right. Plus the bottom of the cat's head is too round - no stray hairs or anything - too smooth an edge.

I always enjoy looking at a wet pussy

The first picture looks like the tub we used to have at the SPCA at which I worked.

Beestie, I don't see anything wrong with the shadows. I suspect that leash isn't where you think it is; look at it in relation to the cat's feet. It ends up being to the right of -- and slightly behind -- the cat's head.

Some more humanization of cats
As if washing cats wasn't enough: Some people go to the trouble of training their cats to go to the toilet. Pretty convenient for those who shun cleaning the litter box, and let's be honest, who likes those kind of chores. If done well the result looks like this:

That cat in Happy Monkey's post looks EXTREMLY pissed off. He's thinking, "If I had thumbs and a clear shot at yer neck, you would be so dead right now, you rat bastard."

I don't get it, you've still got to flush the damn thing afterwards, just let the poor animal go outside.

I'm sorry, did you say "line cut" or "lion cut"???

Why should anyone want a blasted cat?
jaguar Wednesday Jul 7 07:34 AM
Because you don't need to train cats not to shit on your carpet. They also don't require constant attention.
wolf Wednesday Jul 7 10:58 AM
You clearly haven't had cats, have you?

cats are the best pets period. mine throw up every now and then, but never on the carpet, just the vynle or hardwoods. meanwhile, my dog slips on the hardwoods scratchin em all to hell and back and barks at anything that moves in my culdesac. even blowing trash.
