The common myth is that Cats groom themselves. The fact is cats lick themselves. The saliva contains allergens which spread across your house and encourage allergic reactions. Cats also produce a lot of dander and oils in their coats, naturally, they shed and if they are not bathed regularly that loose hair gets trapped by the oils at the roots which if left can becomes a tangle, tangles then become matts which can be painful and stressful for your cat. Regular bathing will stop this from occurring. Cats also spread litter, dandruff, and hairballs.
Professional grooming includes the basics to help maintain a clean and healthy cat including nail trimming, a bath to cleanse & degrease the skin and fur, a blow dry which helps with shedding; coat condition and hairball reduction, brushing/de-shedding, de-matting and a sanitary shave for cleanliness of older and long-haired cats. Add ons such as toe tuft removal, belly shaves, teethbrushing and soft claws nail caps are available as well as Kitten and Senior packages.
The National Cat Groomers Institute of America and the Cat Fanciers Association recommend the following grooming schedule for cats:-
Long-haired: every 4-6 weeks
Medium-haired: every 6-8 weeks
Short-haired: every 8-12 weeks
Matting is 100% preventable. Professional Grooming based on a maintenance schedule will eliminate this plus shedding, hairballs and other unpleasantries. Repeated matting due to lack of grooming or scheduled maintenance will be subject to extra charges or in extreme cases referral to a Vet***
Extra charges will be applied if additional de-shedding or de-matting is required. You will be advised of this once I've have had a quick meet and greet with your Kitty on arrival.
Wait times in Summer can run up to 6 weeks, pre book in advance or at the end of your appointment if you can(10%0ff)
All other times 2-3 week wait.

For the Kitty who is having a bad fur day, this is the go-to! Have you noticed those knots and tangles in their fur? We start off with the full coat groom and a thorough blow dry to help ease out the naughtiest knots, the rest can easily be removed with some gentle technique and a cat comb. For those tight Matt's, we gently remove by clippers/shaving.

This is the lesser of two evils when it comes to managing out of control shedding. We begin with the full coat groom and continue with a thorough high-velocity blow dry that loosens the undercoat. We finish with a comb to suit your kitty's coat and work out all that loose hair. The outcome is a smooth and shiny coat and a smaller looking cat.
