Grooming Day -- Day 2/96

Walk: Union Square, Corte Madera
Distance: 1.5 miles and home yoga practice

Warning: Cat Entry Ahead. (Like Jon Carroll, one of our SF Chronicle columnists, I allow myself one or two of these a year).

For me, the only downside of big, long-haired cats (besides allergies) is that their coats can get too thick for ciwt to manage.  So, every six weeks or so Callie's groomer takes over where I fall off.  My grooming technique is to start combing and stop at the slightest whine from Callie.  So, basically, like all good cat owners, I obey. Not so with her groomer; even a Roar from Callie wouldn't stop her.  Needless to say, this always comes as quite a shock to Callie who wanders around kind of  pie-eyed after the groomer leaves. But very soon, she recalls who is in control around here and becomes groom resistant for another six weeks.
