Statement of fact: Maine Coons are very hairy cats and this is shedding season.
Ash loves be brushed but unless she is asleep I cannot trim her nails unless I want parts of me removed.
Fiona the ex-beauty queen loves to have a manicure. She HATES being combed or brushed. She gets extremely upset, extremely. She keeps herself in reasonably good order but was in need of a good combing. So she got combed. I removed a small cat's worth of fur. She doesn't look like I removed anything. And she is pissed.
