EMBARRASSED CAT GETS STRANGE CLIP JOB !
MAKE SURE YOU READ THE TEXT BEFORE YOU OPEN THE PIX.
"My sister-in law is from Oklahoma and has a slight accent. She has cats and when she lived in the south she would take them to the groomers and have what is called a Line Cut. To her a line cut is when all of the fur hanging down below the cat's tummy is taken off (because it gets matted or snarled.
When she moved to Chicago with my brother, one of the cats fur got all tangled up during the move so she took it in for a line cut.
She was quite surprised when she heard the price as it was twice as much as it was down south. She confirmed with the groomer that he understood what a line cut was and he said "yes, I know what a LION cut is." It seems her accent came out sounding like LION not LINE and this is how her cat was returned to her. (see PHOTOS) She cried for a week...but not as much as the cat. It was November in Chicago and the cat needed all the fur it had."

A few days after posting this story, we recieved this from Terry M:
Don't know where else to address this. That shaved cat in the Pets section has a "Lion Cut". We have our long haired tabby shaved that way all summer. All right, maybe a joke.
Last year our A/C unit went belly up and I had a service tech in to do repairs. The cat is weirdly paranoid about strangers in the house and had to run by the tech to get into the bedroom.
He whipped around to me and asked in a very excited voice, "What the hell kind of cat was that"?
In a Kodak moment I blandly replied, "That is a fairly rare Kenian pigmy lion".
The cat is yellow which helps. The tech did not have the right part, as usual, and had to come back with it later in the day. When he came back, he had brought the company boss and as they installed the palm sized replacement together, they kept looking around.
Finally they asked if they could see the "miniature lion".
I calmly fetched her out from under the bed, displayed her and spun a long tale of acquiring her from a small village witch doctor while travelling Africa. The cat mean while offered up various deep growls and generally a pissed off attitude about my holding her, which is also common.
To this day, those guys believe in "PYGMY LIONS". I never have bothered to correct their perceptions.
