Choosing a Cat Groomer

When considering pet grooming options, one must decide which pet groomer will best suit your needs. There are many dog groomers out there, but very few cat groomers. If you have a cat, you should look carefully at what specific facilities offer cat grooming expertise. Cats are finicky animals and they can be very hard to groom, putting the groomer at risk for bites or scratches. Choosing a professional cat groomer is a important decision the pet owner must make to ensure the health and happiness of their cat. As with all animals, a quality grooming service helps put your pet at ease and makes the grooming experience a positive one.

Cat pet grooming is a difficult job and not many people are up to the task. Some of the best dog groomers refuse to groom cats due to the fact of the danger to both themselves and the animal. Most cats do not like water and bathing them can be a adventure as both cat and human fight for dominance. Most cats become emotionally distraught when immersed in water, and it takes a experienced pet groomer to calm the cat and at the same time protect both parties involved.

Pet grooming techniques have been designed to keep the animal safe and give the animal confidence in the groomer. A good cat groomer will use the necessary gloves and other equipment to make bathing a more pleasant experience for the feline.

Another aspect of cat grooming is to cut mats off long-haired cats. Breeds such as Persians and Blue Hairs are notorious for having big mats several inches in diameter which are tightly packed against the skin. Grooming these types of animals requires diligence in finding these mats and cutting them short enough to brush out without actually shaving the hair off of the skin.

To ensure less frequent trips to the grooming expert, it is advisable to brush your cat out daily and avoid the unsightly mats as they appear.
