Be Forever Furless

A Tail
By Greyson

Once upon a time a gentle reader, Yesenia, was hired to work in a far away land at the Lilly Brush Company. Once Yesenia saw the company's product, The Be Forever Furless brush, she knew someone who really needed a brush to clean up the fur of two floofy boy cats.

So Yesenia told her new boss that a brush was needed post haste at Casa De Housecat. So they contacted the residents, and of course they were willing to deposit fur and try it out.

So they day came and the Be Forever Furless brush arrived to the delighted squeals of the human Mom.



"Look boys!" She exclaimed. "I'm gonna de-fur everything!"

"Did you read the directions?" Asked the sassy-mouthed wise Greyson.

"The directions? It's a brush, how hard can it be?" Mom replied as she proceeded to brush back and forth over the sofa. Low and behold - hair from the couch magically leaped to the brush.

"Victory!" She shouted, waving a clump of fur in her tight fist. "Hey... I wonder if I can brush you boys directly with this baby?"

With an evil gleam in her eye she walked with a forced casualness towards Quillbert who trembled.

"You're not touching him without reading the directions first!" Said the brave Greyson.

So she read the directions...

"Hey! You're supposed get it wet and shake it off first!" She said as she raced for the sink. She approached the bed under which Quillbert hid.

"Are you supposed to use it on your pet?" Quillbert asked as he inched away.

"Well... lemme read it again." She grumbled as she re-read the directions. "Well you can use it on clothes..."

"But directly on pets is not mentioned right?" Demanded Greyson.

"No." She replied begrudgingly, as she busied herself cleaning the bedspread.

And all was right in the land.

The End

The Lilly Brush Be Forever Furless brush usually $19.95 is currently available at Bed Bath and Beyond on sale for $14.99 - did I mention her tight fist?

  11. But does it say you CANNOT use it on pets? I've been using mine for months. Maybe I should read the instructions. ( It says to get it wet? Really?.....oops.)

  12. Sounds like a pretty good tool for de-furring things around the house...just not the cats. Wonder if Dad would like one of those in his Christmas stocking? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
