Sora our long haired cat is always coming home with all sorts stuck to her. This weekend was no different. Saturday morning as usual she hopped onto our bed. Groggily I rubbed her back from fluffy collar down to her bushy tail. I noticed a clump of fur in-between her back legs so I sat up, found a scissors and proceeded the cut it off. In doing so I pricked my finger. Obviously I wasn't dealing with a run of the mill hair ball. Sora calmly and cooperatively flopped on to her side. (She is quite used to me removing knots from her coat.) I snipped off the unwanted accessory and on examination found she had a cluster of thorny branches matted in her fur...It must have been pretty uncomfortable to walk with.
