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

City Kitty is Sweet 16!

The First Salon in the United States Exclusively for Cats celebrates a Milestone! Save AUGUST 20, 2016: City Kitty, THE full service Salon for Cats only is celebrating 16 years of helping our feline friends feel and look their best.

What’s a Girl To Do?

So here is my dilemma. And it happens so often I am writing in my blog about it. For years I have been trying to educate people about the regular grooming needs of cats. And I don’t mean running a comb through them once a year. Same experience for friends of mine that are dog

Our New Salon Hours

Why I Love Cats

One of the most fascinating things I’ve learned over the years of grooming literally thousands of cats is that they each have their own very unique personality. In fact, I don’t think I would be exagerating if I were to say that there are as many cat personalities as their are human personalities! And sometimes the cats, well

Yes, Virginia, Cat Grooming Is a Profession

I find this so amusing. Whenever I am looking for a cat groomer for my salon, I post an ad which clearly states “Professional Cat Groomer.” I get responses from people telling me they own a cat. Really? I also own a car but I would never apply for a job as a mechanic! I

Choosing the Right Breed

We all the love the cat we see on the Fancy Feast commercials, but how realistic is owning a cat that is so high maintenance? All the long haired breeds require a lot more grooming than a short haired cat. And a Persian is at the top of the high maintenance list! Trust me, I

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
