Mr. Cosmo's first Show Groom
Well, I finally got the courage, and all of the stuff, to do a proper show groom on Cosmo. If we are going to show him, as we plan to in April, then this is something we needed to practice.
Now Cosmo is a very easy going kitten/cat, as LONG as he gets his own way that is. :-) He dislikes being brushed, and so I had my trepidations about doing an actual show groom on him. But all in all he did very well with it, only struggling for a while. It has quite a few steps to it, so as it went on in time he either decided to accept what was happening or just got tired LOL.
The results were wonderful though, and Michele says he looked "stunning". He didn't stay that way too long, but hey he's a baby cat still and loves to get into "messy" things.
Here are some more pics of him right after he was dried. I was very happy that he accepted the blow drier as readily as he did too, it sure made what was a long process a bit shorter. If the first time was the worst then we should be able to do this at least a few tmes a year.
Thanks Michele for all of your help, thanks Mark for holding him while I scrubbed him, and thanks Cosmo for being such a "good boy".
