Message on the machine from our catsitter when we got back from our vacation:
Hi! Hope you guys had a great trip! I wanted to talk to you…I’m really worried about the enormous mat on the side of Lucy’s head.
OK, here’s a cat that is constantly in my face, literally licking my face, rubbing herself all over my hands and the hands of all our friends. How on earth does she develop a nasty, gigantic goiterous mat on her neck and we don’t notice it? Are we the worst cat-parents ever?
Anyway, next time you see Lucy, be sure to tell her she looks lovely even though she has a large round bald spot under her right ear. And should you notice another disgusting defect on one of our cats, just let us know.
