While I was thrilled to have Gamma brushing me last week (so thrilled I purred for her) she was a bit over zealous on the back meets tail region and the furminator (being a bit blade-like) stole a bit more of my furs than it should have. Now I don't have a bald spot but I have some thin areas. I hope my Charmers don't think less of me. It will grow back, I promise!!! Its hard being a middle aged cat sometimes.
