Sunday -Monday Vultures Abound

Hey, I see a vulture roosting on Katie's tree.  What's that you say?  That's no vulture?  That's a Katie?  Are you sure???  Everything is dangling!


Kitties!  What's with my furs in this picture I am about to put in?  I don't wear a collar and this "indention" in my furs is too wide, maybe 4 inches, and too low below the neckline for a collar even if I did wear one.

Mom started noticing this closer- to- the- skin look in my furs a few months ago.  She took this picture yesterday.  I have no skin lesions, no fleas, no critters of any sort are in the house.  Mommy brushes me daily.

Thoughts?

Katie, that is like a band of regular fur, without the floof so floofy. Interesting. If you had not pointed it out I don't think I would have had my eyes drawn to it, but since you mentioned it, I do see it.

Simba said...

Oh, and Pee Ess, we had TWO butterflies today!

I haven't forgotten about the sweet awardie you gave me. I just have to arm wrestle Mom into doing a post and helping me choose some awardees.

OMC, you are too cute hanging off your cat tree! We don't know what would cause that indention either. It's like your long furs decided not to be long in that spot. Hmmm.

Miss Katie
Mom laughed (that is an accomplishment around here)when she saw your first picture. How adorably cute you are. We think perhaps your fur is just naturally curving that way, Mom knows our Angel Abby's fur had it's own curves to it.

I have no idea what is happening with your fun in the 2nd photo...sorry! I do think the first photo is wonderfully cute and funny!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Maybe it is just the way your summer coat grew in this year?

Brian said...

I think it is probably from all the hugs Spitty has been giving you pretty girl!

Tillie and Georgia said...

Well, around your neck you have a pawsome "ruff" The flat part probably has no "downy" layer like the rest of your body :)
Tillie and Georgia have thick "downy" layers under their fur(hair) so the fur does not lay flat, and they are short haired kitties.
Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

No ideas here! We are all furry short hairs at our house, maybe it's a natural cow catlick?

We lubs the first picture too! That's quite the dangle, MOL

Katie, you crack us up! Hope you didn't slip off the cat tree!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Well, no thoughts on the furs, but you sure do know how to "roost" on your tree! MOL!

The Island Cats said...

Oh Katie, we hope you don't hang right off that tree!

We don't know why your furs are like that. But we probably wouldn't have noticed it.

William said...

You are too cute, Katie!

Could it be overgrooming? I'll tell you a secret--Pee Queen's belly is about 1/3 really short fur, but my mom never sees her grooming it!

GreatGranny said...

Sweet Katie, you're a hoot hanging on your tree....mol , new cat fad, perhaps?
Mom says she has no clue about the short furs...sorry.

Keisha said...

Is maybe ur furs were just squished a little from the collar?

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

That's a great photo of you dangling from your tree, Katie. Don't fall off!

We aren't sure about your neck furs. You're right, it does look a bit like you're wearing a collar.

Katnip Lounge said...

Katie, have you just shed out your summer coat? Kona has a dramatic transformation in the summer.

Oui Oui said...

Julie's furs are like that, it helps her mane show up better! Our mean mom posted Carl squeaking in a PTU on the way to the vets. After all his singing with Admiral, we are sure your mom will know his voice.

Cathy Keisha said...

I like the way you dangle from your tree. Maybe you'll start a new fur style.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Human wants to sneak up on her and nom right on her footie! We are sending you an email!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Oh, you sweet adorable girl. That is such a funny photo of you on your tree!
Mommy says she has seen that sort of "indentation" on some of the longer furred kitties that she grooms. And they have no issues either. :)

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

It's summer, sweetheart, it'll floof out again when it gets cold.
It probably also looks littler there because it's under your ruff, so it's not small, your ruff is big! hee hee
Now to the major picture: Katie! Look at you doing a huge back and front double dangle! Why, even Leo the dangle master hasn't tried that one yet!!! Speaking of Leo, he's so in awe that he's speechless, ..and he's printing! MOL Oh wait he's going to say something..

Leo says: Uh... uh... Awesome!

Old Kitty said...

Awwww sweet Katie!!! You are so fantastically floofy maybe some of your fabulous furrs just got more flat than the others and may spring back up later! Yay! take care

rinrinflu said...

So clean Katie:) Mum does a very good work! Have you got pinterest?¿

Anonymous said...

Sweet Katie you always give us a big giggle when we see you hanging...that is just the cutest picture ever with you hanging on your tree. We don't really know what is causing the indention unless you are doing something that keeps the fluff worn off your fur. Hugs and nose kisses

Selina said...

We DID get your award, sweetie, and thank you! MomKatt's just been so busy w/the foster kittens that she's not had much time even for MY blog! You are looking pretty, sweetheart!

Love
Selina

Peaceful said...

Burst out laughing at that first photo :D

Caren Gittleman said...

funny you asked that question! My Mom noticed my fur looking strange below my neck too. It sticks out more or something with a sort of a line. Mom was puzzled too. Probably is just our fur that's all! Love, Cody

Rita said...

Talk about tree relaxed!
No clue about the band of shorter fur. Keep us posted. :)

Tamago said...

Hi Katie san. I have no idea about your neck fur. Due to changing coat from summer to winter, maybe?
I love the first picture. You are so cute hunging on the tree :-)

Ragdoll Mommy said...

I think it's just fur! Have a great day:-)

Anonymous said...

We think that's a summer versus winter coat thing. It's like the fur on your head is thinking summer but your neck and chest aren't parting with last winter yet. We knows summer is almost over but,...it's a fur thing! Purrs...

Kitties Blue said...

Katie, Mommy says that is the funniest cat position she has ever seen, and with eight of us and the nine angels who came before us, she has seen bunches. You are extremely talented. How long did you remain that way? Maybe you are just shedding some furs for summer. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

BostonBoy said...

You sure know how to relax.

My cat Trixie's hair does this too!

Love your play house and you sure are a beauty.

Mariodacat said...

ha ha - Katie, M just loves you to pieces. She says you are the most entertaining kitty she's ever seen. You are just so funny! That position you are in on the cat tree makes it look like you are a stuffed kitty rug! ha ha About your furs, there are lots of good suggestions above. It looks like you are wearing a belt. You haven't been trying on your mom's wide belts have you? he he

Flynn said...

You do a very good dangle Katie.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

XOXOXO We hope you liked my pictures--we are twins!

Sushi said...

You are too cute, katie.

Katie and Glogirly said...

For a minute there we thought that heart shaped floofy thing was you too!!!
; ) Katie

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We think yer furs are reacting in sympathy to all the kitties who DO hafta wear collars!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hello my sweet darling! My Human's been so naughty--she's been all "busy" with work and she has not been playing with me hardly at all. And you are right--there was an OUTRAGE that involved toy disposal. It was HORRIFYING. I've been too traumatized to write about it yet, but I will do a post one of these days. Love you! XOXOXO

Kjelle Bus said...

XOXO
