Grooming Choices For Your Kitty

Reserve a day  for your kitty to experience the calm and gradual ways of Gentle Cat Grooming.

MY cozy groom room welcomes kitty with friendly surroundings and feline pheromones to help calm and soothe anxiety.  Strictly no sedation, no force and no tears.  I spend the first hour getting to know kitty and assessing how best to approach the groom so that kitty doesn’t become stressed. Grooming follows in many brief sessions and can take several hours as kitty is always free to pause the groom whenever desired, so please allow at least 4 hours for grooming to complete.

If you choose to remain with kitty during the groom, I will not allow you to hold kitty but I do encourage you to offer comfort and reassurance, so that the precious bond of trust you share with kitty is not harmed.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BATHING

Cats should not be bathed except for medical reasons or to remove toxins from the coat. Their skin is fine and delicate, it needs the essential layers of oil for protection and to keep it hydrated and flexible.  Frequent bathing will dry out the skin and this may lead to irritations such as dermatitis and even hair loss. Remember, cats are naturally clean, they sweat mainly at their paws, and they do like water, but only on their own terms. So please people, don’t put kitty through unnecessary bathing.          Meow
