Outside VS. Inside Cats

It seems all I have seen lately are posters for missing cats. Since we have coyotes and raccoons in our neighborhood, I’m sure they will never be seen again. Cats don’t understand the dangers of being outside. It is up to us to be their caretakers and keep them safe. You have not only invested

A Cat Grooming Franchise?

OK, we have all heard of franchises in the forms of restaurants, home repairs etc. But a cat grooming franchise? A franchise is nothing more than a duplicate of a finely tuned and successful business. So why not cat grooming? Having an emerging franchise, as many of you may know is not easy. No one

Finding Passion in Your Work

It’s been said that if you love your work, it’s not really work. I have been fortunate to have had that in my life, first as a dancer, now as a cat groomer and franchise owner. I have always loved animals. They have always been a big part of my life. As a dancer in

It’s Not A Dog’s World Anymore!

As a cat lover, or really as an animal lover, I have seen a huge shift in the last 20 years on how the general public views cats. They are finally getting the recognition and respect they deserve. I am seeing more publicity about cats, more services, more cat related businesses including veterinarians. I’ve always

The Upward Journey

It’s always hard to be a pioneer. On the one hand you have the ability to establish a field that was not very well known and hardly established. On the other hand, you do a lot of explaining to those not familiar with this field of work. What I am talking about is cat grooming.

My Life With Cats

I’ve often wondered what my life would be like to not have the responsibility of taking care of my cats. At one point a few years ago I was down to one cat, and for a brief moment I thought, “Maybe I shouldn’t get anymore, and have that sense of freedom.” Did I say brief?

My 600 Pound Cat Life!

Obesity in cats is something we see quite often in the salon. But it is no joking matter. The same issues people have with being overweight such as diabetes, heart disease, liver failure, arthritic joints etc., can be found in cats. I have seen cats so overweight that when we are working on them they

Always Learning

As in every career, and yes, cat grooming is a career, (just in case you are wondering), it’s important to further your education. There are always new products to learn about, new methods, and new ideas. Recently we spent a few days at the Northwest Groom and Trade show in Tacoma. And just when you

My Cat Deserves the Best

It’s so easy to ignore our cat’s needs. They aren’t “in your face” pets like dogs. They aren’t demanding. They aren’t complainers. But they have needs. As a cat groomer for many years, I know this. I have shaved down more matted cats than I want to remember. It always saddens me, and I have

My Cats are Hissing

So why is it that when I bring home my cats that have been groomed the other cats hiss, or they hiss at each other? Jealousy perhaps? No. Cats have very poor eyesight by nature, yet their sense of smell is 40 times that of a human being. They don’t recognize each other. Even if

I wanted to thank you for making our Nora look and feel so good. As I am typing this she is sitting on a shelf she hasn't been able to jump to in a long time. She is grooming herself again and getting around so much better. Thanks again, Anna Drake
