The Gentle Cat Groomer

Hi I am Samantha

I am firstly a Cat Lover, and then Cat Groomer.

Cats have been my dearest companions ever since I was a child, they were all short hair tabbies back then and required little grooming so I was quite unprepared for the demands of maintaining my first long haired feline back in the 1970’s, a Chinchilla I named Benny.  It was the beginning of my mission…  To help cats who can’t help themselves.

Cats are masters at concealing pain so their grooming needs can often be overlooked and then we wonder why kitty seems so cranky.  Over the years I have learned the language of cats, I call it Cat Whispers – its in their eyes, their actions, their purrs and their hisses. I weave my craft of soothing fears and easing pain with nothing more than love, patience and sharing whispers.

In past years I volunteered at Lort Smith Animal Hospital cat shelter and fostered cats in my home. This experience gave me a huge insight into the minds of fearful strays and feral cats, I dedicated much of my time in gaining their trust and socialising them to become suitable for adoption. I’m very honored and proud to have made a difference to these fortunate felines who would otherwise have perished.

I currently share my home with four cats, all adopted from Lort Smith and some I personally fostered. I only wish I could save more of these remarkable felines.

My focus is on grooming cats without sedation, without force and without trauma… I do this because nobody else does.

My passion is to share my gift with the community, because cats should not suffer from neglect, oversight or financial circumstance.
