At the NCGIA, we like firsts.
The NCGIA is the first association for cat groomers.
We have the first set of cat grooming standards and the first certification program for cat groomers.
And our school is the first school in the world that teaches cat grooming exclusively.
This is the first session where we have had 3 international students attend at one time.
It’s the first time we’ve had a student from Hong Kong attend.
It’s the first time we’ve ever had a student from Australia attend.
It’s the first time we had a major grooming celebrity visit our school.
It’s the first time we had a tornado watch during a school session.
Each of our students spent the past two days of class performing a variety of firsts: lion cuts, comb cuts, de-shedding treatments, cat bathing and drying, face trims, SoftPaw applications, sanitary clips, belly shaves, using clippers and Air Muzzles, and getting peed on by a cat.
Firsts are usually fun and always memorable.
Here are some photos from class today……….enjoy
- The same cat, only after the groom – the pink around the eyes is a result of all the build up that was there before the groom
(I have no idea why the pictures always post in a long line on this blog system........crazy set up. I apologize for the layout.)
