“Which Tools Should I Use to Groom My Cat at Home?”

How does the saying go? ‘There’s more than one way to skin a cat’? While I’d rather not think about the origin of that phrase, we all know what it means. Basically, there’s more than way to go about completing most tasks, and that phrase ironically applies to grooming a cat just as it does skinning one. In this post I’ll tell you what tools we use to professionally groom cats in the salon, and I’ll also give less-costly alternatives that get the job done for those of you at home that don’t want to invest $60 in a comb or $350 for a blow-dryer.

Do Calming and Behavior Tonics Work for Cats

I’m not a scientist, but I’m going to give you my opinion on it anyway. Take it or leave it. Pet owners are sometimes desperate people. Their unconditional love and affection knows no bounds, but their knowledge of animal behavior and anatomy definitely does.

The Five Worst Cat Products That You Probably have at least one of…

In my opinion, there’s nothing worse than a waste of time or money, so for me this was a kind of dream-assignment. I love calling people out on crappy pet products (and there are a ton!). I’ve probably tried all of them, but would love some suggestions if you have any new ones that I’ve overlooked. These products range from absolutely absurd and completely useless to actually dangerous. Continue reading The Five Worst Cat Products That You Probably have at least one of…

New YouTube channel and Salon Tour video…

Do you know what the inside of a cat grooming salon looks like? Unless you are one of my clients, the chances are pretty good that you don’t. Although cat grooming is rising in popularity in the United States, it’s certainly still considered a unique occupation. Even more rare is an actual salon vs. a mobile cat groomer.

“Cats in the wild don’t get groomed, and they do just fine.”

Does everyone reading this know what a feral cat is? If you don’t- a feral cat is the exact same as your adorable little house panther in all ways but one: It does not have a relationship with humans.
