Cactus Jim

Cactus Jim, Jim for friends, isn't like the other cacti you find at your neighborhood pop-up store. The rest of them are happy with a quiet place and some water every other week. But Jim is.... well, Jim is more social I guess. And he likes to be petted. All day he longs for hands caressing his head and he loves nothing more then being stroked until he falls a sleep at night.

Being a prickly cactus, Jim finds it very hard to find someone to give him the tickles he yearns for so much. So, being the good cactus-mom I am, I took him to the Daltons Barbershop right around our corner. They supplied him with an old straight razor and let him do his thing. Now his forehead is as smooth as a baby's bottom. He just has to wait for the bleeding to stop and the petting sessions can begin!
