19 Animals Who Changed So Much After a Haircut That Their Owners Hardly Recognized Them
It’s good to be a cat: you turn to one side — everyone admires you and you turn to the other side — everyone keeps admiring you. But then suddenly they take scissors and give you a “lion” cut, making sure to post the photos of the new you on the internet. All this leaves you sitting on the windowsill with the only bush of hair left at the end of your tail, pondering about the vicissitudes of fate.
We at Bright Side spent several days looking through users’ “before-after” pictures and came to the conclusion that successful grooming can make anyone from a rabbit to a dog look beautiful. On the contrary, a bad haircut can turn everything upside down. The good thing is that no matter what, these pets will still be loved as much as before.
“We groomed our cat because we got tired of his fur. Now I keep endlessly telling him that he is a handsome guy.”
And everyone around kept saying: What a cute little puppy!
When your haircut is perfect from head to paws:
“Our neighbors groomed their cat today: from fluffy and big to this...”
Max’s first grooming
“We took our doggie to a new groomer. Eventually, we brought home this creature and kept laughing at his new paws.”
“We groomed our cat, he got offended at everyone except me and has been sleeping in my bed for 3 days in a row.”
“I was told that the haircut would be done with a trimmer set on 3. I have never had to deal with this device so I agreed. Here is the dog I brought home...”
“Thank you! She’s got the best tail.”
“This is my friend’s cat. They removed her fur because of flea issues. They say she is offended now.”
Another case of “Woah there’s a whole other dog under there!”
“I wanna groom the rabbits like this but idk a grooming place that caters to rabbits. They only do dog grooming and sometimes cats.”
“We groomed our cat in May because he had so many dreadlocks. We thought he wouldn’t get cold because it was May but, thanks to the weather, the cat was freezing and now I have to warm him up in my jacket.”
“My dog Oliver has a Batman chest after every grooming.”
When you are obsessed with braids:
“I had my cat groomed and afterward I found... a skeleton of another cat.”
“My stepdad decided to groom the dog in his spare time.”
That very case when you go to the salon and ask them to slightly trim the ends... and they do it."
“3 pairs of hands, my panic, a bag of fur, and you can see the most velvet-like and the sweetest cat on earth.”
All in all, we believe that cats are not the best candidates when it comes to grooming. Moreover, there is an opinion that says their natural heat exchange gets disrupted, and their tender skin may end up getting burnt from the sun, not to mention their broken self-esteem. On the other hand, it’s only with the help of scissors that we can get rid of fur dreadlocks and shedding. What is your opinion: to groom or not to groom?
