We decided that it was time for young Cupcake to visit the hairdressers.

First, Lynda bathed her and brushed her coat out,




then she checked to see how long her hair had grown again. Cupcake's hair grows about an inch a month.




"Trust you to be filming this"




The process begins,




"I'm off"




All done.




"I don't know why I put up with this"




"i like what you've done with my corronet though"

You make it look so easy :(|)
I am a nervous wreck trimming my long haired piggies - they are sooo good though and make little happy purring noises :))

What a beautiful piggy!

I think this is what Glinda may look like eventually :)) She did have some whispy bits growing at the backend, but I cut them the other day (accidentally gave her an embarrassing 'bowl-cut' type hairstyle!). She still has wispy bits coming out from her ears though - she looks so funny.

Do you trim under her tummy? I noticed Glinda is getting a bit grubby and is in need of a bath, and I was wondering if it would be an idea to trim some hair? (Don't think she'd appreciate it much, though)

Aww, bless. I hate doing Archie's trims...he hates it! He kicks me and squeals at me and gets in a right strop. Teenagers rolleyes I made a right mess of his fringe last time though :red Luckily it grows quickly.

Cupcakes hair isn't long under her tummy, like all longhairs their tummy hairs get worn away naturaly. I wouldn't like to risk snipping a nipple off either.

We only trim her when her hair starts to hold the dampness and she tends to smell a bit.

Cupcake stamps on Lynda's hand and makes very it very obvious that she doesn't want her hair cutting, a little trick is to gently place your hand flat on their back to calm them down.

Lynda says "Do you think Esme prefers her men with short back and sides then?"
