FLAT WAFFLES: Hey, Flat Boss?
FLAT KATIE: Waffles, enough with the Flat Boss already. Just call me Boss.
FLAT WAFFLES: Ok, so Fla.. I mean Boss? Did you see the real-live cat at BarkWorld today???
FLAT KATIE: You mean this cat? The one just to our right?
FLAT WAFFLES: What's that lady DOING? Is she playing wheelbarrow?
FLAT KATIE: No Waffles, it's not a game. It's a cat grooming demonstration.
FLAT WAFFLES: Cat grooming? So why's the cat not grooming herself? Is her tongue tired?
FLAT KATIE: No, Waffles. This is Petunia the cat and she's getting a day at the spa. Danelle German is the president of the National Cat Groomers Association and she's giving a hands-on demonstration showing some of the techniques they teach at their institute and she uses in her cat grooming business.
FLAT WAFFLES: Wow, they go to school to learn how to groom?
FLAT KATIE: It's the world's first and only feline-exclusive grooming school. Glogirly sat next to her at the Meow Breakfast today and was fascinated to hear all about it. Everything from a shampoo and blow dry to a comb out and mani-pedi. ...they can even do a "sani-trim" to keep things clean and tidy in those nether regions.
FLAT WAFFLES: Do I have nether regions???
FLAT KATIE: Glogirly was very interested to hear about the care and patience that goes into handling the cats and gaining their trust as well as some of the benefits a day at the spa can bring – no hairballs, luxurious and fluffy coats and just plain feeling-good.
During the demo she also trimmed the long hairs around Petunia's eyes and nose so she could see much better. With her breed the hair grows long and can cover part of their eyes.
FLAT WAFFLES: Is Glogirly going to give US a day at the spa?
FLAT KATIE: Well I think she's probably going to start combing us more. And we all know YOU could use a nail trim. For now though, I'd think twice about playing with your toys in the bathtub.
