I thought I would post this picture in response to Paul joking about "Your dog is bald" on the "Fly Selection Rut" thread. The look says it all - "Come any closer and that's the last thing you'll ever do with that pair of scissors, buddy..."

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Excellent photo, Jonathon. From experience, the best way to harvest a cat's hair is with a brush - that way the cat is happy and the dubbing well mixed when you're finished.

I have to commend you on your choice of a calico - lots of interesting color blends could be made with strategic brushing.

"From experience..." - you're not missing any fingers, are you Shawn?

Her underfur seems to be mostly white, but hey, I'm set for White Wulffs anyway, my favorite night time pattern...

Judging by the fur colors of the stuffed animal in the back, that cat has been shaved before!
