We have been on holiday: my mum to Iceland and islands up north and me to the Irish aunt where I have been spoilt by snaffling the cats’ leftovers and being allowed on beds.
Home today, cuddles and right into – a thorough groom. Absence makes the heart think… ‘Truffle, you look like a shaggy mat!’
Taking ideas from Tracey, the pro groomer, my mum used a No10 blade and got right down to the spots. Not as neat as Dial-a-dog-wash but a lot cooler for the week ahead which is supposed to be a scorcher.
Me and the cats are making sure mum stays put for a while with all three of us guarding her closely.
