Formerly Floofy Friday

Kitties!

Nekkid Tiny Johnson here, and I have something shocking to tell you:
I like being nood!

That's right, I don't miss all my floof in the least.  I can roll around all I want and nothing sticks in my coat, and when I get a scratching it really feels good!  Mommy says my hide feels like hot velvet.
Noodity is so freeing.

No more endless licking, grooming, furballs, and mats. 
No more beige tummy fur!

I have so much more time to watch out for my favorite snack, The Baby.
Who knew that nekkidness was so time-efficient? 
 
Mommy has been threatening to shave me for the last couple of months, she even borrowed a set of clippers from a friend and gave it a go on my ginormously generous pantaloons--no dice.  I was getting poopy cling-ons all the time, and my flanks and chest were so matted underneath that I had to bite Mommy every time she tried to comb them.  And then there was the "beige issue"--I couldn't get my white parts white, no matter how much I washed.

Mommy asked about grooming at the Evil Vet's, and she wasn't happy with the price, the fact they wanted to knock me out, and that I had to have all sorts of vaccinations beforehand.  She considered taking me to a groomer, but then she got to thinking (dangerous, I know) that KonaKitty has grooming issues too, and Maui is a disheveled  mess and is too antsy to stay still for a combing.  Which meant toting three of us to a grooming salon, not fun for anybody involved.

There had to be a better way.

At least, better for Mommy.

And there was!  Mommy had seen the Dirty Dog vans in the neighborhood before, and she filed the dastardly information away for further nefarious use.  As you can see, she called and we got groomed--KonaKitty also got some shaving on her hinders but she's too much of a lady to show y'all.  Maui is incredibly soft with neat, organized furs, and check THIS out: 
I can use the box without getting sand (et cetera) in my pants!

Daddy can't get over how sleek I am. 
Side by side with Sylvester, he's actually bigger than me, so much for me being the fat cat, heh heh.

Look how floofy my tail is now, it's as wide as my hips! 
It's still really loooooooong, too.

Mommy was surprised my skin didn't have stripes--I'm solid gray underneath. 
The groomer girls did a great job shaving me, my fur is nice and even, and Mommy only saw one nick on my skin--and I got a good report card, too!

I was very well behaved, it seemed prudent with clippers buzzing around my bum.
All in all, I'm quite pleased with my new look--lion mane, floofy tail, and moon boots.
And nood everywhere else!

I hope you all still love me... 
Up close I still look the same.


Happy Friday!

We must confess, TJ, old boy, that after the initial shock (and emergency dash to the litter tray/peemail over the curtains) we snuck back and looked at your nakedness in more detail yesterday. Äiti was very impressed by the closeness and neatness of your shave, and how your mane had been left so tidily. We were impressed by your body language and the magnificently strong way you held your self - definitely baring all with pride. And we are now not even outraged by the fact your humans take a photo of your intimate sandbox moment as we can see it is for educational purposes! BUT we don't want Äiti getting any ideas - we are furry and coping well without shaving, thank you very much! And if you can forgive your Mom then I am sure we can.
And we hope all you guys - and girlcats - drop on by for our party. We have hit the thousandth post mark so it's time for a very big nipfest to celebrate. And you never know, you might like the sauna now you are naked!

Prancer Pie said...

Tiny, efurrybody here is all agog at the beautiful color that your furs were hiding! Mind you, we haf no wish to be an exhibitionist such as yourself, but we can tell it has set you free. Enjoy your nekkidness! Peace out, dood.

threecatyard said...

If he's like my cats, that will last for at least 6 months before it gets long enough to start getting hard to manage again.

I've never had the home van come, that seems convenient as heck. And looks like they do fine work.

Sparkle said...

The groomers did a great job! That said, I certainly don't need some strangers (hu)man handling me!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Whoa! All that nakedness....it's too much for my little heart. But you're still excessively handsome TJ. purrr....meow!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

TJ, as she said so unladylike-ishly last night, The Human would LOVE to get her grabby hands on you! She was certain that 'warm velvet' would be exactly how you would feel.

We think you look mah-vellous! All ready for your red carpet walk at the Oscars, right? I mean, they *are* taking you to Hollywood Sunday, right?

Also, you guys need some tunnels.

curator said...

Oh! Lots of laughter...and you know what, it's healthy and natural to go nood sometimes! Enjoy!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You are very sleek! And good for your mum. I don't think Gemini would hold still for a groomer with a clippers. I think she would have to be knocked out the way she fights. But I bet, like you, she would like it when she was done!

The Cat Guy said...

so sad, all that beautiful fluff, gone! sounds like your mommy is just trying to justify the torture. I'm not buying it. hoping the fluff returns!! long live the fluff!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

So you're a.. *gasp* Nudest? oh we're in shock over here. A shaved Tiny Johnson is one thing, but loving it and being one of those naked all the time and loving it people... that's something totally different!
We had one of those in my neighborhood, and when anyone was around he wore red mesh undies (with a solid patch in the front) so if we see you in red speedo stuff.. we're gonna totally freak out! After we gawk that is, but then freak out! MOL!
Psst, you do look comfy and free.. but so naked! hee hee!
Psssst, of course we still love you!! you's gorgeous!

Pricilla said...

You look quite handsome

san said...

We are very impressed with how neat and beautiful you look. You also look really cool and comfortable. The only one in our house who gets nekkid is Totoro and he likes it as it is very hot in Singapore.

Lily said...

I have an aunt kitty that gets a yearly shave. She LOVES to get pettings afterwards cause she can feel them better than when she has her long fur. She is a tuxie, but when she's shaved she has cow spots and tabby stripes. My grandpa calls her a heinz 57 mix.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Mommy has a client that LOVES being in the nude too. And she's a girl! The weather here is SO hot and humid, and her fur is very very thick so she won't play and is irritable until she gets a shave (every 3 months).
We're so happy you love your new look coz WE do! Err...you could try a lion's tail to go with the lion mane next time. :)

Princess Jasmine said...

Mummy can just imagine how lovely and velvety you must feel. Maybe you could start a noody club for other kitties to join :)xx

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my, nudity looks good on you. We are especially impressed by the moon boots. Our mommy is talking about a lion cut for Miss Cindi Lou and after seeing how yours turned out we think it's a great idea.

Purrs,
The Kitty Krew and Cindi Lou

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

Hmm, maybe I should shave Hammy...

Rachael G said...

Still a handsome chap with all the nekkidness!!

Old Kitty said...

Mr Johnny!! Me and Charlie hope you glorify in your liberating nakedness but also hope your wonderful new furrs sprout soon and you'll be big floofy non-poopy furred Johnny again real soon! Yay!!

You are wonderful! Take care

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock said...

We said it before, Johnny, and we'll say it again: YOU LOOK FABULOUS!!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

You do look great shaved, Johnny. Our human never had Chumley completely shaved like that, just his belly and hind end, but she remembers how soft he was. :-)

You look so much like him you always make our human's heart melt, in a good way.

Cat said...

Tiny Johnson you really are tiny now!!! We think you look fantastic and glad to hear you feel good too :-)

Deb said...

You look like a little lion now. "Roarrrrrrr"

-d ma said...

hey tiny- i'm writing you from prison. i was so inspired by your post that i went to work naked. could you please send some bail money? thanks.

Clarissa said...

Of course we still love you, nood or furry!!! You are one of the most handsome cats we know!!! You remind us of our handsome brofur, Puff! He has very floofy pantaloons too!

Abby said...

Such a handsome boy. :)

Rene said...

Oh yes, we still like you, don't worry! We think your haircut looks great and is so neatly done.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Our friend Patches loves his lion cuts. He get awful mats with his long fine fur. The mats pull his skin when they get big and thats no way to live. That hurts!!!
He is the dreamiest softest kitty when he's shaved. Mom went over the day after once and she couldn't stop stroking him.

Hannah and Lucy said...

TJ we have fallen in love with you all over again.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Forever Foster said...

Dude, you've almost got me on the shaving bandwagon!

Brian said...

Madi and Mom said...

Johnny I, Madi, think you look very very very very very very handsome!!
I love your mane and fluffy tail....Baby better be on her p's and q's Johnny has free time on his paws.
Hugs Madi

Random Felines said...

mom says you are a great nekkid cat (and shhhh - she is threatening to do it to Spud - but hopefully will wait for spring)

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

We think you look great dood!!!!! And from reading the comments, it looks like plenty of the ladies still adore you.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh TJ...you are absolutely THE handsomest boy there! And you look like velvet besides feeling like velvet. Is Maui going to take the plunge? I have medium furs so I probably will be able to stay f=dressed and not nood but my sisfur dmiral, man, mom had to keep after the mats constantly and periodically she had her tummy shaved. Since it was all curls, mom hated to see those go but curls make for mats.

You look fabulous.

Repositório said...

You are beautiful hairy or naked. Whatever!
Kisses

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Of course we love yoo. Nood is really cool! xx

Carolyn said...

Nood can be chilleh, but I guess not in the desert!! TJ you look a mighty handsome nood dood xox

Cory said...

Of course we still love you...nekkid is kinda cool! Not that I want to try it or anything like that. I'm still gonna watch out for vans. You never know.

The Cat From Hell said...

Yous looks pawsome! Just like a LION! except yous a gret tuxie! Me would love to cuddle up to yous!
Kisses
Nellie

Marg said...

You do look slick now. Bet it will be cooler for you too in the summer but guess your hair will be back by then. Take care.

The Island Cats said...

It's great that you have embraced your new found freedom, Johnny! We forget that it is warmer where you live so being nekkid probably does feel better. We think we would freeze here in Michigan!!

Layla ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Johnny, we didn't think we could love you more but we do, with you new "do". It's a win win and you'll be so cool in the summer.

Eric and Flynn said...

We have to admit it, you do look pretty good in the nood.

Barb's Cats and Quilts said...

I agree, nekkid looks good on you, Tiny. Good call on the mobile shower, Trish.

Natalie said...

You look pretty spiffy, Johnny, and it does sound like being shaved has some excellent practical benefits.

Pasha said...

Knatolee said...

You look FABULOUS! Emily and Naomi think you are SUPER SEXY in your new hot velvet look!

Huffle Mawson said...

Johnny, you still look very handsome. And I guess Tiny is a good nickname now!

Smooches to my darling CC.

Stacy Hurt said...

I am with Puna; at first I was all OMC! But now, it's more like OH_LA_LA! You is quite sexie in your velvety undercoats and now that you are all dried off and your maine is floofed out you look more more in perportion. Pretty boy!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

The Indulged Furries said...

You all look fantastic and it sounds like everyone is much happier with less fur. Moonboots - that's a great fur style.

Jewel said...

Glad you are feeling comfier now, and hopefully it will last a while before you need another haircut.

AttieCattie said...

ArtemisiaFSS said...

I still love you, you looks very dashing with your Lion cut and you are still HUGE compared to me. ~Arty Mouse

~*Connie*~ said...

aaah.. the beauty of a lion cut on a cat who enjoys it..

You wear it well!!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Ooh, you look really good nood!!
-JB

MoMo said...

Hey, you look pretty good with the lion cut. I might not look half as good since I am a very skinny kitty under all that floof. Glad SS only took all the mats out.

Oui Oui said...

Julie went to a kitty groomer at the beginning of the year and they loved her! She BEHAVED and didn't bite anyone. They did a great job - they washed her, removed her mats and gave her a "sani-clip" so there's no more dingleberries. Professionals do know what they are doing.

Scouty, you didn't get the treatment did you? They are just tenderizing for the stew!

Kitty kisses, MMM
