REASONS TO USE A CERTIFIED CAT GROOMER

There are many reasons for a veterinarian to use and recommend a certified cat groomer.  The most important is that it improves the over all health of the cat.  There is less dead hair to form hairballs and cause intestinal problems.  Less dead hair also means less matting and skin irritation.  With less skin irritation, there is less chance of skin infections or over-grooming.  The haircoat is not the only part of the cat that a certified cat groomer looks at.  The ears, eyes, and mouth are also noted. Many times the groomer is the first person to notice changes in the cat’s health and can point out subtle changes that indicate the beginnings of a problem.  This allows the cat to be evaluated by the veterinarian for the changes.

    A certified cat groomer is also trained in how to handle a cat for grooming.  Cats are not small dogs and need to be treated differently.  A certified cat groomer does; treating the cat with gentle assurance.  Under a cat groomer’s care, the cat gets a complete brushing of the coat, a bath with gentle shampoos, nail trim, ear cleaning, and special attention for special breeds like Persians.  Due to the specific training groomers receive,  most cats relax and enjoy the experience.  With a more positive experience, the cat needs to see the veterinarian for stress related problems less often.
 
When my patients need a grooming, I recommend only the certified cat groomer in my area.  With her, I am sure my patients will get the care they need to complement my treatment plan for their particular condition.

I have been meaning to write to you to let you know how well Knetah is doing after her appointment …She is able to get around so well now without her mat problem…I had no idea that they were restricting her movement so much…I feel so badly for not seeing this sooner, but as I mentioned…we got our 8 week old German Shepherd on Christmas day last year, and he was occupying so much of my time…Knetah walks around so quickly now, she is under our feet constantly – she does meow, which is a great warning signal for us so we know where she is…She has taken back the house exploring all rooms again…she also lets us know if she needs assistance going up stairs…her quality of life has much improved thanks to your wonderful service!!  She even tries to clean herself now when we brush her…very sweet!  Today she walked down our deck stairs to the catnip patch and enjoyed eating the buds and then laid down wiggling on the concrete…very cute!

Thank you again for changing her life for the better, she is one very happy kitty.

I don’t even know where to start! Aphrodite was a mess, not feeling so great. Really needed to be groomed. She is now prancing around the house showing off for her brothers and sisters. She looks amazing! She has never been groomed without sedation and it was great to pick her up and not have a groggy and drooling kitty.

All of that aside, she has never looked better after a groom! She even had the spa treatment and enjoyed it!
The whole experience was great from drop off to pick up. Including a text when it was time to pick her up with a picture attached.

Aphrodite will now be receiving regular grooming and spa treatments, due to the stress free experience. Thank you! You are truly amazing!

Caring for a 19 year old senior kitty with multiple health issues is difficult enough without adding Covid 19 restrictions to the list.  When it became obvious Fiona needed care for her fur and skin I turned to Cheryl for help.  Fiona had never been to a groomer before and the stress it might produce was of major concern to me. Cheryl carefully listened to my concerns and worked with me to devise a multi-step plan to not only bathe and groom Fiona but also address Covid 19 safety issues for us “humans”.  From the moment we arrived I felt so safe. It didn’t take long to realize that Fiona was in great hands and responding positively to her spa experience. Cheryl’s caring, expertise and attentive monitoring of Fiona’s behavior couldn’t have been more perfect. Seeing Fiona shoulder deep in water and completely relaxed during her 15 minute spa bath treatment was something I will never forget. The end result is a new Fiona.  She is back home relaxed and moving with greater ease than I have seen in months.  Her fur, greasy and unkempt before, is now soft and fluffy and her posture and movements show a kitty who is contented and happy. I came home too, so happy to have found our new cat groomer.   Thank you so much Cheryl!  Gertrude wants to know when she can come and see you.

“I just wanted to let you know that Petunia is one happy cat!  She is walking around here like the Queen of Sheba!  She’s really good and I know she enjoyed her bath.  Just wanted to let you know that.  Thank you!”   – via voicemail from Lorraine S.

I met you a few weeks ago. I was full of fur balls and wasn’t feeling very good about myself. I spent a lot of time hiding under the bed. You would too if you had matted fur like I did!

After my grooming, I am like a new girl. I have spring in my step and come out to play more because I am beautiful again. Not too crazy about the metal comb but I like being brushed again. Wanted to thank you for your gentle treatment and for not having to shave off all my fur. I like myself again and feel so much better.

See you again for sure. Thank you. My owner says thank you too.

I just wanted to thank you again for attending to Penny. She smells so fresh, and I’m thankful that you got rid of her mats. She is resting and is probably wondering what I did to her. But, she really needed to have a “Beauty Day”. She looks wonderful. – Arlene E.

Cheryl, thank you for doing such a beautiful job on Samson last night. I could not keep my hands off of him as his coat is so soft now. Poor guy had to keep getting it from my Jack (younger cat) who I am not sure recognized him.” – Holly

Thank you so much for taking care of Butch. He looks great, smells great, and has been a much happier cat ever since his grooming. A funny thing about Butch since he has been groomed is that he has started chasing his own tail. It’s quite funny and great to watch because he just appears so joyful and happy while doing it. To anyone reading this, I highly recommend The Cat Groomer. You will be extremely happy with the results. Once again, Thank you. – Craig S.

In the 3 weeks since you groomed Charley, he has been happier and livlier than he had been in a long time.  He is sleeping in his bed on our bed each night as he used to in the past.  He stopped sleeping under our bureau during the day.  He plays in the evening and runs around the house like a kitten. I have been combing him.  His mane has grown enough that he looks like himself again.  
He doesn’t look as skinny since his fur has grown back enough.  The extraction of 7 of his teeth last fall caused him to be unable to work effectively on his own.  [Grooming is] good for older cats and others with “disabilities.”  He also loves to be petted now, which he didn’t before his grooming. Another reason for professional grooming.
Thanks so much.  We will see you again before too long! – Cindy & Steve P.
