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

What’s Going On In the Belly of Your Business?

Does your business need an antacid, a laxative or perhaps a colonic? As strange as this may sound, think about it. As salon owners we sometimes get so busy working we are unaware of what is really going on right in front of us. We are like a race horse going down the track with

Circular Nails on Senior Kitties – Ouch!

“So why is this happening with my senior kitty? This is new.” As a cat ages, arthritic changes in the bones of the feet also change, as well as other parts of the body. The toes start to bend slightly forward, making the nails grow more in a circular fashion and sometimes directly into the

What is a Master Cat Groomer?

Since my mind is usually running 200 MPH at all times, a lot goes through my head. Thoughts, opinions and plans. I have hesitated to express my opinion on this matter as I don’t want to offend anyone. But it won’t go out of my head. In the cat grooming world there are two schools

Feline Hyperthyroidism

Many of you have experienced this with your cats and are undergoing treatment. It is one of the most common diseases of the middle aged cat. It is a multi-system disorder caused by an increase in the amount of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) produced by an enlarged thyroid gland. Although the enlargement in the

Cats Need Their Space

All cats have territories, which they defend and depend on for food, safety, and other resources. Cats establish their territories by scent marking and scratching. Hormones are released through the cheek pouches as well as the pads of the feet. So when your cat scratches, it is not to “sharpen their nails” as we have
