Cat grooming keeps your cat’s fur tangle-free and clean.
Finding a cat groomer may not be difficult, as most businesses that offer dog grooming will also offer cat grooming.
While finding a groomer maybe easy, finding a groomer that specializes in cat grooming may take just a little research, but you will find it beneficial, and will less likely to run into any problems.
Look for a professional who has actually had training in the grooming of cats.
Someone who belongs to a professional association such as the National Cat Groomers Institute.
Grooming techniques for cats are very different than they are for dogs.
Cat grooming can come with a wide range of services…..
In addition to cutting hair, detangling and styling, cat groomers can groom around the face, trim nails, clean ears, give flea baths, clip matts, bathe and blow-dry your cat.
Mobile grooming would be best, especially if your cat is one that’s hard to travel.
But if you need to take your cat to the groomer, take the time to introduce your pet to a carrier and travel first. Maybe just a trip to the car and back.
Leave the carrier out for days at a time, so your cat doesn’t do a disappearing act once the carrier has been seen.
**Don’t lose your cat! Make sure carriers are secure and safe.
A professional who has had training and specializes in the grooming of cats, should welcome and answer any and all of your concerns.
Know where your cat will be kept and how long your cat will need to be there.
In a kennel next to a barking dog for 5 hours is probably not a very good experience for your cat.
Know what is to be included in your cats groom….
Cleaning a cats ears can sometimes cause harm if not done right. If you do not have a professional cat groomer, this is something that should be left for your veterinarian.
Always let your groomer know ahead of time about any matts, and just how severe. This action could save you from a second trip with added costs if needing to transfer to a veterinarian for the more severe matts, that may require sedation.
And as with any adventures….
For the health and safety of your cat, be sure all vaccinations are up to date before using any grooming services.
