Jasper the Fluffy

We have let Jasper grow out his voluminous coat for several months now - it provides him invincible protection against the cold. But, the longer it gets, the more maintenance it requires. Plus, he is starting to leave little bits of fuzz around the house - the carpet in our bedroom, the edge of the couch, etc. So, ever now and then, we drag him out to the porch and comb him down with an implement that can best be described as a hand-sized rake. Not only does it pull a fair bit of loose hair off him, it smoothes out his matted bits, and causes him to approximately double in size.

As far as we can tell, it doesn't actually hurt him at all to have his fur tugged at until the tangles yield.

Oh yes, see how he suffers.
