It’s Hairball Day and A Giveaway!

Once again, Team AboutVetMed (Barnie, Quincy, my daughter and I) participated in Hairball Awareness day. I posted a sneak peek of our final entry on Monday, and here is a quick review:

2013 FURminator Entry

Ten bloggers participated in this year’s challenge of “mustache cats.” The 11 cats (we snuck in a second cat) are also featured on Romeo’s blog, the FURminator Facebook page!, and People Pets gallery. Check all of them out for info and links to great cat photos and pet blogs! Woooot!

2013 FURminator Challenge

The challenge seemed simple enough. Brush your cat(s), glue the fur on a stick mustache, take a photo of it with your cat. Too easy, almost. Until we brought out this crazy new toy.

Here is a recap of the photo shoot.

We started with Quincy. He was very interested in this new item.

Mellow Barnie was easy peasy. One shot. There you go.

Argos kind of likes the new look.

Crazy Purl just loved all of the commotion and wasn’t concentrating on her photo pose.

Back to Quincy. Maybe a new environment would help with the mustache pose. Surely this “new toy” interest is wearing off by now?

Back to Purl, taking a break from her toy destruction.

Quincy isn’t sure about this yet. Maybe letting him “grab” the mustache will lessen the curiosity? Nope.

Finally resorted to pulling out a new toy to grab his attention and get the quick photo of ‘stached Quincy.
