CO2 extinguisher so cold it caused goose bumps forcing fur to puff up?
Or a reaction with the CO2 and residue from the breast enlarging coffee?

I took fire extinguisher training for my job a while back and we got to practice with CO2 extinguishers. I got zapped 2 or 3 times in the 20 seconds I was using it.

Back in the day when we could still use honest-to-gosh Freon as a chiller for debugging heat issues in electronic circuits, we zapped many a CMOS chip with the static electricity the spray generated.
If it ain't broke, I'll fix it!

One incident at the sawmill my dad worked at was during an cold snap where the temps were -25C. A blower motor caught fire, and a worker grabbed a fire extinguisher to put it out. He did a short burst, felt a tingle, then a did a full blast which shocked him and sent him flying.

I believe it might have been on a elevated catwalk, so he would have had a pretty strong connection to ground.

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, since I so rarely use "animal traits" gags in TWB, but in this case, no, it has nothing to do with static electricity.

Basically the blast of intense cold (something like -150F) caused her "winter coat" to spring out.

Yeah, it's a common joke in "furry" comics- Ozy & Millie did it at least twice, and that strip's been ended for over a decade- but since we're back into some silly gag-a-day comics (and will be for a while) I figured it'd be a fun addition.

The only question being to I "run with it" and make a running gag out of it, or just have her go to a stylist and come back, back to normal.

Doc.

Didn't generate a charge when I went through training. But I was in 90% humidity in Florida at the time.

The only thing I'm expecting is for Roger to be scarce for a while when she can see again!

I say run with it for a bit, and not just because I'm biased. Fluffy is cuuuuuute! ^^
