Em has coccidia, so for a few days it was smooshy poops and baths.. I finally gave up on giving her half-baths and gave her a full glamour treatment: whitening shampoo, thorough grooming, mango tango AND peppermint shampoo, plus a thorough blow-dry and fluffing. She looked FABULOUS yesterday - just amazing. So soft and yummy smelling, and perfectly groomed. She looked ready to star in a movie. She went to the vets' today and is getting her butt shaved (yay no more scissoring for me!) so I wont have too many issues until she gets better. She's on meds, so don't worry. Other than being a little bit out of it she's fine. The official report from the vets' office is that she is being unbelievably charming, as usual. See how smooth her coat is?
