Just a Brush Out Please!
Many times clients call Kitty’s Purrfect Spa with a problem. For example, Kitty has a mat in the middle of her back. The Human wants the problem fixed, they know Kitty is uncomfortable, they know Kitty won’t let the Human solve the problem their way, so they call us to solve it the way the Human believes it should be solved. When we have a problem this serious, most of us do not walk into the doctor’s office or mechanics garage and tell them how to fix what is broken. Kitty’s Purrfect Spa fully understands the emotional bond you have with your beloved feline. We understand you only want the best for Kitty. We also know that you would do no less for your child.
This is precisely why you called a Certified Feline Master Groomer. A groomer who ONLY grooms cats. A groomer who comes to your home, and grooms in the most comfortable and stress-free environment for your Kitty. A groomer who is trained in cat psychology. A groomer who is trained to look for feline signs of stress and possible medical issues.
Kitty’s Purrfect Spa understands it is a shock to you when we politely tell you, no, we will not just brush out Kitty. Each and every Kitty we groom gets the full package! Paw-di-cure, warm water massage with degreaser in the bath, facial, ear cleaning, room temperature drying, and a comb out. Depending on Kitty’s coat condition and owner preference we may add to our basic service.
WHY? WHY would you force my cat to have a bath? Kitty’s Purrfect Spa firmly believes a bath solves many issues. First, it degreases the coat preventing matting and in its worst form pelting. It open up the hair follicles promoting a healthy growth cycle. Forced air drying allows us to view every inch of kitty’s skin. Many times we have found lumps, bumps, and injuries the humans were not aware of. Ear cleaning allows Kitty’s Purrfect Spa to notify the owner of excess wax or ear mites, both reasons for a vet visit. A facial allows us to look for any eye, ear, nose, and sometimes mouth problems that need professional attention.
Also, time after time, Kitty’s Purrfect Spa has observed the transformation in a clean kitty. Most of them want to show off! They seek extra attention and petting! By allowing Kitty’s Purrfect Spa to perform all grooms to the level of a Master Groomer, you will be notified of any issues that you many need to see a vet regarding, you prevent bigger difficulties in the future, and you allow your Kitty to feel amazing and frisky again!
