I wish Maya would hold still for better pictures….
Here’s how she looked two weeks after the lion cut (June 11):
…and here at three weeks (June 17:)
It’s easier to tell the difference by feel than by look. She still doesn’t quite feel like a shorthair would, because she doesn’t have a full undercoat; it’s growing at the same rate as the visible fur. But she’s so much softer!
Her colors and markings are also showing much more. A lot of that color will be covered by black top fur when she’s finished growing out, so enjoy it now!
