But Nico's the poofy kind. When we first met him, he was all matted and tangled from his days on the mean streets of Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. The Montgomery County SPCA shaved away the worst tangles before they handed him over, but three months later, he was a little black cumulous cloud of curls.
Lather, rinse, shave...then repeat. Every three months.
Two days ago, Nico visited the groomer's, where he was de-fluffed and pampered:
He came home sleek, neat, and smelling like a daisy. Lovely, right?
Which doesn't mean he won't try again. The world's a mighty tempting place.
To guard against future escape attempts, the gap in the fence has since been boarded over. We've been scouting out other possible escape routes, hoping to stay one step ahead of trouble.
Would somebody please remind Nico that he's got it pretty good here?
