Fursday (Without Fur)


Hi Peeps! Imagine what it would be like to have NO fur coat all you doggies, kitties, and guinea pigs out there – just imagine……but on a HOT HOT HOT day, we’d sometimes like to slip out of our fur coats and chill – right?   Well as you know there ARE some of us who ARE hairless………and frankly, they kinda make me glad I have a fur coat even if I get HOT in the summertime!

Mexican hairless dog……..actually hard to tell he’s hairless – could just have a shiny short cropped coat I suppose…but he’s got “worry lines” in his forehead!  Maybe he’s wondering where his coat is?????

And this little sphinx kitty – he’s only 12 weeks old and already he looks COLD and like he’s somebody’s grandpa.  Also has “worry lines” – see what I mean?  There’s a lot to worry about when you have no “protective coating”.

I really am not poking fun at these guys – there’s room on the planet for ALL of us and we ALL deserve a wonderful life – right?  I just got to thinking the other day when some of my bloggy buddies were saying they wish they had a shorter coat or less hair just exactly what that might mean for some of us and all I can say is that I will not be complaining again about being warm because I have a coat on!

Nuff said?

To be super fair, I have to say while looking for those pix online I saw some totally ADORABLE pictures of “baby” sphinx and hairless that were BEYOND cute.  Have you ever noticed that baby animals (and baby humans too!) are almost always totally adorable?  It helps us find our forever homes early on I think.  As for human babies – I’m sure when they’re waking their parents up every two hours all night long at first with dirty nappies and being hungry it HELPS a lot that they’re adorable (if you get my drift).    I think the bottom line is beauty is all around us – and takes all forms and shapes and sizes.  Hairy and hairless, we’re all worthy of love.   Right????


Gosh – I really hadn’t intended to do a lecture on babies or hairlessness but there it is anyway huh?  I think I’ll go admire my ginger furs in the mirror.   I’ve certainly learned to APPRECIATE my gingerness, that’s for sure!

Just checking....yep - I'm ginger alright!!  That leg definitely has ginger fur on it!

It’s here!  The end of the week…..housecleaning day……I get brand new tissue – and I need it this week.  It was an exceptionally messy week of play for me and I may have done more tissue shredding than usual.  Thank heavens my Mom keeps a large supply of the stuff on hand.  It’s almost my FAVORITE toy EVER!

Sam loves newspaper and tissue - go figure!

Tissue and newspaper…..nice and CRINKLY!

Yesterday it was 103 degrees outside and with the humidity factored in, the weather dude said it FELT like 110.  Well, I can vouch for that because I asked Mom if she’d pretty please let me go out on the front porch once – JUST ONCE – and indeed it was a real “scorcher” outside.  The nice crunchy grass looks like it’s been deep fried…..leaves that shouldn’t be falling yet are fainting right out of the trees…..even though Mom watered the gardens this morning they are LIMP and SAD looking this afternoon.  But me?  I asked to go outside to see for myself so good old Mom took me.

Yikes! It’s HOT out here! I’d better stay in the shade or I’ll get french fried feets!

Next week’s going to be mighty interesting around here.  I heard Dad on the phone this afternoon arranging for our driveway to be re-sealed.   I know what that is and I distinctly remember the LAST time this happened and it was noisy ALL DAY LONG with equipment, trucks, strangers in my yard – a real mess.  Of course the driveway looked swell after it was done but still…….talk about noisy! 


It’s always something isn’t it?  Just about the time you feel like you can relax – your humans throw another wrench into the works.  Although I suppose putting up with the noise is a small price to pay to live in the lap of luxury like we all do – right?  Hmm??  I’m right now aren’t I ????

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀
