Cat Whiskers

Some Fun Cat Facts

Your cat has 30 teeth, 16 on the top and 14 on the bottom. There is a total of 24 whiskers on your cat. The upper two rows can move independently of the bottom two. Front leg whiskers allow the cat to gauge and feel prey. A cat is only one of 3 animals that

Patience is a Virtue

One of the many valuable lessons I have learned in life from grooming cats is patience. I have learned (most of the time), to slow down, be in the present, and focus on the job at hand. Cats have their bad days and good days just like us, whether they are not feeling well, something

Cat and Snow

Holiday Safety

A reminder to us all as we get busy in the next few weeks to prepare your pets for safety as well. Most flowers, such as Lilys, Poinsiettias, Holly, Misseltoe, etc., are toxic for cats. Tinsel, spray snow, ribbon and lights can be dangerous as well. You don’t want to spend your holidays in the

Grooming a cat

How do you groom a cat?

I often get asked when a new client calls to inquire about grooming their cat, “Well, how do you do it?” I am usually at a loss for words. I really don’t know how to answer that question. Groomers are professionals at handling and working with animals. It’s just what we do. I am always

TICA National Cat Show

The cat show we attended over the Labor Day weekend was really fun and we had many visitors to our booth, especially with Manny, my adopted cat as mascot. By the way, he had a Lioncut and was colored blue for the event. A TV crew from Catsmania TV show was there and took some

Sprits In Transition

One of the most incredible experiences with animal education I have ever had is taking a hospice care/palliative care workshop with world renown veterinarian, Dr. Ella Bittel called SPIRITS IN TRANSITION.  After the City Kitty logo cat, Ret Butler was euthanized on a cold metal table and was left there alone as I walked away,

Holiday Safety for Your Cat

Cats love ribbon, tinsel, tree water so be careful with these items. Also Lily plants of any kind are highly toxic as well as Poinsettias and Potpourri. If you are having a party put your cats in a quiet room so you know they are safe and won’t escape or feel stressed.

Four Signs Your Cat May Be In Pain

Cats conceal their pain. It’s an instinct from the earliest years of their evolution. Pain means weakness and vulnerability, and for small animals who could easily become prey to a larger one, showing pain is a death sentence.
