|Here is Mark's story about this photo: "My sister-in law is from Oklahoma and has a slight accent. When she lived in the south she'd take her cats to the groomers to have what is called a Line Cut, which is when all of the fur hanging down below the cat's tummy is taken off (because it gets matted or snarled).|
"When she moved to Chicago, the fur on one of the cats got all tangled up during the move so she took it in for a line cut. She was quite surprised when she heard the price ($80) as it was twice as much as it was down south. She confirmed with the groomer that he understood what a line cut was and he said "yes, I know what a LION cut is." It seems her accent came out sounding like LION not LINE and this is how her cat was returned to her.
"She cried for a week...but not as much as the cat. It was November in Chicago and the cat needed all the fur it had."
