I got this in my email today and pissed myself. Whether the story is true or not, I don't know, but read the story before looking at the pics...
"You won't believe this story. My sister-in law is from Oklahoma and has a
slight accent. She has cats and when she lived in the south she would take
them to the groomers and have what is called a Line Cut. To her a line cut
is when all of the fur hanging down below the cat's tummy is taken off
because it gets matted or snarled). When she moved to Chicago with my
brother, one of the cats fur got all tangled up during the move so she took
it in for a line cut. She was quite surprised when she heard the price as it
was twice as much as it was down south. She confirmed with the groomer that he understood what a line cut was and he said "yes, I know what a LION cut is." It seems her accent came out sounding like LION not LINE and this is
how her cat was returned to her. She cried for a week...but not as much as
the cat. It was November in Chicago and the cat needed all the fur it had.

Actually I've seen cats shaved even more severely than that (like the tail has NO fur left, so it looks like a rat tail) due to severe matting or skin disease. I volunteer at the Animal Protective League of Cleveland about five hours a week.
I'd be surprised if that groomer wasn't severely scratched. We usually have to sedate a cat to do a shave like that.

The poor kitty. Something very similar happened to my Bluepoint Himalayan a few years ago. I always had him shaved in the summer to keep him cool and to get rid of the matting.
This particular time I was using a *home pick up and delivery* groomer. When the guy delivered the cat back he seemed to have scratches all over his arms and couldn't wait get away.
Sooo when I opened the cat carrier *Mad dog* (The cats name...) bolted from it and climbed atop the lounge. The dude who did the grooming had given the cat a "Lion Cut" and the cat was unimpressed and sulked for weeks until I took to another groomer to fix it up.
3 Months later I called the *home pick up and delivery* groomer to return and the guy said "We WILL NOT do mad dog".
I suspected that Mad Dog was the one who inflicted the vicious looking scratches on the groomer. LOL
