Brush My Love Away

Dear Frank: I hate being brushed. I used to like it, but now it tickles. What can I do?
Sincerely, Ticklish in Maryland

Dear Ticklish: Just explain to your human that when you shed you are leaving little pieces of yourself all over the house to love. It’s a gift really. And surely they don’t want to brush your love away, right? I think they’ll understand.
