PotW: Pixie, lovely haircut for a lovely lady

Sex: Spayed female Breed: Domestic long hair – black & white Age: ~ 10 years old Reason Here: I was found abandoned Arrival Date: 6/26/2018 Pixie, a fluffy cat by birth, came to HSCC with quite a bit of matting in her fur. Because of this, she had to get a true “pixie cut” a.k.a. “lion cut” and although she may not care for it, we think she’s lovely no matter what’s on the outside!

Letters to the editor: August 30, 2018
