My sister-in law is from Oklahoma and has a slight accent. She has cats
and when she lived in the south she would take them to the groomers
and have what is called a “Line Cut”. To her, a line cut 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 with my brother,
one of the cats fur 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 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.
Gas in car to go to groomers: $4.50

Grooming fee: $80.00
Getting the look from one seriously ticked off cat: Priceless!
Post-Note: Is a “lion cut” for real?
“The “lion cut” is indeed a standard grooming technique in which a cat’s hair is shaved skin-close
all over the body but left intact around the head, feet, and the end of the tail; the style so named
because it mimics the large mane and foot-and-tail tufts of a male lion.” Snopes.com
