Back to Xena, she is ALWAYS covered in burs. She is absolute wrong sort of cat to be a ranch cat. Her fur is long and super soft. The foliage in Northern California is dry and brittle from months of hot weather and no rain. I should have named her Bur.
I gave her haircut early in the summer so that helped, somewhat.
Linky loo to those always and forever participants at Ziva's Inferno.
