March 2020 rude remark towards groomers during Covid-19.

Way to go People. It's fine to sell grooming kits to pet owners. But do you have to show a total lack of compassion for thousands of groomers that are financially suffering from the Covid 19 crisis?

We refer to the statement in your article to pet owners buying the grooming kit, "Maybe you’ll become such a pro, you’ll never need an expensive groomer again."

Ouch! What a lack of thoughtfulness on your part.
