Why do we groom cats? After all, don’t they groom themselves?
Then how do you explain this?
This cat is greasy, smelly, matted, and has hardened poop stuck to his behind.
He needs a bath and a blow dry.
He needs a sanitary clip.
He needs his nails trimmed and his ears cleaned.
He definitely needs his mats and tangles removed.
And he could benefit from a belly shave.
So this is why we do what we do. Because cats don’t really groom themselves at all.
We, as professional groomers, groom them.
Using the best products, tools, equipment, and techniques can produce stunning results that make a tremendous difference for the cat and the people that live with it.
Using waterless shampoo will not produce good results. Spritzing a cat with some type of spray will certainly not produce good results. And merely brushing the cat’s coat out will not produce good results.
In fact, doing any of those things can create more of a problem for both the cat and its owner. Since we are professional pet groomers, making things worse is not option. Fixing the problem and preventing it in the future is what we are all about. All for the sake of the animal, because it is in their best interest.
This is why we do what we do.
It is a rewarding job, one that I love very much!
