What? I'm trying to nap in the Amaryllis.
I have something to tell you!
And besides, you know Amaryllis are toxic to cats...
Napping. Not eating.
Now what do you want?
You know how I like to practice creative grooming with you?
Remember the time I did some random ramblings for that Open House?
Yes...weren't you trying for autumn leaves?
No one likes a smart-cat, Sara.
Besides, I called it Abstract Fireworks. No one knew.
That's a poodle, Beth. I'm a cat.
Following the Best in Show awards and for the first time at Groom Expo, groomers will have the opportunity to showcase the beauty in simplicity by entering Saturday evening’s abstract runway competition. Taking place between Saturday’s dinner and the Barkleigh Honors Awards, the competition features beautifully sculpted, simple abstract designs that use minimal color, if any. These designs should be doable in one day and be appropriate for a client’s dog or cat. Without any elaborate scenery or costumes, contestants will rely on their designs and complementary stylist’s attire as they compete.
Oh, I get it now.
Are you smirking or winking?
Kinda creepy, Sara.
Would you prefer I recline gracefully on a table while looking
shyly off in the distance?
Yes. That's perfect!
Anyway, what do you think? We'll go, I'll clip a pattern, we'll walk down a runway together,
everyone will admire you and you know you love going to shows.
I do like when everyone makes a fuss over me...ok, let's do it!
How are you doing to clip me?
I was thinking some swirly. I tend to be good at swirls.
Are you going to practice this time?
Well...not on you. Not enough time. I'm sure I can find someone to practice on.
It'll be fine!
You're very supportive. Maybe YOU should wear the fancy dress
and I'll wear the fancy haircut!
*I* will lounge on the table, allow you to clip me as I take in the sights
and allow my fans to gaze upon me.
Thanks, Sara. Sounds like a plan! We're going to have a great time.
Not a problem. I'm looking forward to being a star!
Hey, can I go back to my nap now?
Sure, good ahead. Enjoy your snooze.
Beauty sleep, not that I need it!
And that's how Sara and I decided to compete at Hershey Groom Expo in just a few weeks. Five.
Five weeks. Not that I'm counting.
Time to start sketching out designs!
