Moulting shortcut

It's that time of year when I find the temperature is starting to rise and that maybe I could shed approximately half of my coat.  To be honest, I find it a bind to have to groom out all the excess fur or have Ooman fussing round me with a comb.  Much quicker and easier to wait until Ooman steps out of the shower in the morning. 

Damp Ooman shins are surprisingly grippy and you can shed a good clump or two of fur in a single rub.  It's also another lasting way of making your Ooman feel useful/wanted/loved.

My Ooman is such a softie.  We've had some chilly nights here of late, but every night she fills a hot water bottle and puts it right in the middle of the bed so that I can curl up and go to sleep on an extra warm bit of nice, squidgy duvet.  Bless her, she even sleeps on the edge of the bed, shivering under a thin strip of bedding so as not to disturb me.  I'll admit, she does tug at the duvet in an annoying way sometimes, but I don't think she realises she's doing it (in her sleep, after all), so I turn a blind eye.

I let her know how much I appreciate it by licking her face until she wakes in the morning.  I like to think it saves her a few extra minutes in her morning routine.
