The Student Becomes a Master!

Dear Diary,
I’M A CFMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I passed my last tests today! I did it! I’m a Certified Feline Master Groomer! Whooo hoooooo!
I’m somewhat excited.
Today was intense! We did our health presentations, which went well, at least for me. I’m getting good at speaking authoritatively about cats. Which is outstanding, I hope to be doing a lot of it soon!
Then it was Health exam time. I was really nervous about this test. But since I had studied, studied, studied, I ended up doing just fine.
And then it was just practical exams left!
After the written exams, doing a practical with a cat that was filthy, greasy, grumpy and grouchy was a piece of cake.
It’s funny, but when I think about grooming a cat like that, or see another student grooming one, I still think, no way! I don’t know if I can/want to do that!
And then I realize the cat I have been grooming is growling and hissing and trying to eat me and it’s not so bad. And that I’m able to groom it. And that I’m enjoying myself!
Yup, I’m weird like that. It’s a requirement of being a cat groomer!
I kinda want to share some more highlights of my day, like when that 100 pound cat peed on me, or the cat that I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed with F&T that never seemed to get any less greasy, or when Juli and Danelle were telling stories and I shot some Coke Zero up my nose…but I’m too excited!
Instead I’m going to call everyone that I know and tell them the good news. Then I might call some people I don’t know. You know, while I’m at it.
And then I’m going out for a really nice dinner and getting something ridiculously decadent for dessert.
Tomorrow is the last(!) day of school. I can barely believe it. So much has happened, I feel like I’ve been here forever. I’ve met some incredible people, made some new friends, learned a whole new way to think about cats. So much, in just two weeks.
Oh! My phones ringing. I get to tell my first person I’m one of the newest Certified Feline Master Groomers!!!!
