    twice a day

    Twice a day I clean the cat fur off my zabuton, sweep the floor, and sit.

    When I'm done sitting, I fold my zabuton and place it on my bench, where a cat promptly hops up on it.

    I used to cover the zabuton so less cat fur would wind up on it, and wound up with a super furry zabuton cover. The cat seemed indifferent.

    Clean and clean again.

    Cats keep on coming.

    Like our breath.

    I'm thankful for that.

    You clean off the hair twice a day? That's very diligent!

    I must admit that mine has cat hair on it, but I did have the forethought to order a tan colored zabuton and zafu to match our cat's fur color.

    As my wife would say, while pointing at her head, "Not just a hat rack my friend."

    I have a Siamese and a Tuxedo, so I'm basically screwed.

    If you saw my pre-zazen routine you'd suspect me of being a little OCD. Over time I've worked out a little routine that has helped me not to strangle the little... miracles I live with.

    I have to admit ... the less hair I have the more tolerant I am when my dog shares it with me. =)

    By contrast, not long back I had mine chopped off and donated it to one of the organizations that uses it in wigs for kids with cancer.

    My cats still weren't impressed.

    That is a wonderful gift Sydney. When my mom went through cancer treatment in the 90's and she lost her hair, it was donations like that which helped her feel new again. =)

    My dogs have eaten my zabuton and claim ownership of a zabuton or a zafu with urine from time to time. I wish it was only cat hair I had to deal with. My cat behaves much better than my seven dogs. :-)

    Hi Jeshin,

    Quick Doberman story -

    Working the outdoor stage in a theme park, Lake George, New York. My girlfriend is the assistant to a lion tamer with a unique problem. Park patrons were walking behind barriers to get backstage to see resting (between shows) lions in their cages. If you've been up close to an adult lion you'll recall the eyeball staring at you is the size of a grapefruit with paws ready to reach out and "touch someone". Nothing dissuaded these customers from trying to get close-up to these meat eaters UNTIL Jim and Kay Rosaire, the tamers, brought in two of the sweetest, goofiest-natured Dobies whose simple presence scared strangers away from being mauled by lions or licked to death by Doberman.


    Gassho,
    Myosha
