|People often assume that cats groom themselves; this is a common misconception.
We see them licking themselves and think it must be a sort of feline shower. The licking is actually just a cat’s way of getting rid of loose fur, dust, dirt and debris.
If your cat suffers from matted fur, hairballs, bad breath, dandruff/flaking skin, dirty or smelly coat, oozy eyes or ears, or a soiled rear end, regular professional grooming is the way to go to reduce or eliminate these conditions.
Matted fur is common amongst cats. Felines have coats that shed and when loose fur mixes with dirt or debris, it can cause a tangle that the cat is unable to remove. As more and more shedding hair catches in the tangle it becomes a mat. Regular and professional grooming stops this from happening so your kitty can live mat free.
Hairballs are fairly self-explanatory. Your cat ingests large amounts of hair as he/she licks, and then brings the ball of hair back up and deposits it on the household floor, usually whilst the family is eating dinner.
When you have your cat professionally groomed the wash and blow-dry process gets rid of any loose and shedding hair which will dramatically reduce the amount of “surprises” your cat leaves on the kitchen floor. We offer these services to help you and your cat.
Dandruff can be especially unattractive on dark cats, and although they are not dirty, it can make them appear so. Regular grooming and bathing and the use of a soap that will not irritate the skin is the best solution to a feline dandruff issue.
Cats that shed fur all over the house, particularly in the warmer months, can be a huge problem for cat owners. Regularly having your cat groomed including a de-shedding treatment, will lessen the excess fur they are loosing and result in far less lint rollers being purchased.
Cats often have a smelly coat or smelly breath. Professional cat grooming can turn a smelly cat into a deliciously soft and sweet-smelling pet to enjoy.
Grooming Makes Life Easier for Humans: If you or anyone in your family has allergies, you probably know what dander is. Pet dander is composed of microscopic flecks of skin which cats, dogs, birds and other furred animals shed. These tiny bits of skin cause allergic reactions in people. When cats lick themselves they are spreading dander infused saliva all over their fur, a disaster for people suffering from allergies. Regular grooming is an easy solution that can help to dramatically reduce the effects of pet dander from your cat. Does your kitty have sharp claws that hurt or ruin furniture? Each time your cat is groomed its nails will be clipped and if needed you can request that the claws be covered using nail caps, which will prevent your cat scratching the furniture.
Cats cannot remove mats from their fur, shampoo their bodies to get rid of dandruff or odors, or clip their own nails. A professional groomer will do all this and more so your cat can lay back and enjoy a life of comfort and ease.
