Slightly less floof, no matting, coat feels amazing, plus he smells good and his nether regions have been attended to:
He even made it to the groomer and back without shitting himself and the crate, which trust me, is more traumatic for me than for him. He also got a little tuna for dinner. He’s a very good boy and he is very happy.

I take it Steve has given up his traditional fit of violent rage at having to endure a haircut. Fingers crossed for next year.

Cutie pie! It’s a good thing he got up out of that bed finally!
Nothing is worse than cleaning poopy cat fur, I’m sure.
He’s like “yeah, I know I threw a 5-alarm shitshow this morning, but I have to admit, I look pretty fly.”
@Amir Khalid: I know — I was going to add: “Where are the memorial services for the groomers being held this year?”
Was he sedated? He looks pretty relaxed.
Was Cole sedated?
He looks so sweet.
He does look stoned, doesn’t he?
Movie star cat.
I see that he’s let you live.
@MagdaInBlack: I read his look as “I’m damn magnificent, and you know it.”
“Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours to go”
@mrmoshpotato: He looks like he feels better but he doesn’t want to admit it because otherwise he might have to go through all that again.
He is such a gorgeous cat.
That is one gorgeous cat.

The medium and longhairs really benefit from a good grooming, and Steve looks very good indeed.
Damn but he is a magnificent creature.
My ancient fat little bulldog mix, Wilson, decided to go on walkabout, and while digging under the fence cut his pad. I’ve cleaned it and there’s nothing else to do till it heals, but now he insists he be carried around. If you don’t he just falls over and looks pathetic. Sigh. Maybe I should get a wagon and attach it to the other dog.
Part of me wants to see the pile of hair the brushing relieved him of. (This has everything to do with being a fellow staffer to two cats who are currently shedding.)
Just out of idle curiosity, where might one get one’s nether regions attended to, if one is not a floofy cat? Asking for a friend.

Our dearly departed Miss Gracie was a dead ringer for Steve, and had similar issues requiring professional grooming to clean up her “potty patch”, as they referred to it. He is just a gorgeous boy. Thanks for posting pics of him.
Oh who’s a pretty pretty boy oh oh oh
Just google it.
@Jerzy Russian: Waxing salon.
Such a majestic cat. I’ve had several – so I know majestic when I see one???
He’s so handsome, it makes me want to bury my face in his fur.
Cole, what do you mean Steve now smells good? Kitties ALWAYS smell good! (It’s because they are superior beings. And, okay, because they have no sweat glands on their bodies.) Do you mean he now smells like expensive cat shampoo?
Handsome Papa Stevedore Hemingway is handsome!
Proper authoritahs shall be alerted.
We’ve got a young female Steve lookalike. As a kitten we called her Tiny Cat, we officially changed her name to Tiny Bobcat about 5 pounds ago.
Steve is simply gorgeous. I’ve got a thing for Torbies and grey striped kitties.
he will have his revenge
“Who’s a pretty kitty?” “I am!”
Why doesn’t she ever comment any more? I miss her.
