Cats do not groom themselves, they lick themselves. Licking does not remove mats, kill fleas, eliminate dandruff, deodorize, kill germs, trim sharp nails or clean up messes.
Our Certified Master Cat Groomer can help you and your cat by addressing these issues through regular grooming.
When a cat licks itself, it ingests large amounts of shedding. Eventually the hair will come back up in the form of a hairball. A bath and blow dry done on a regular basis can significantly cut down on the number of hairballs a cat produces.
Cats are greasy and accumulate dead, flaky skin when they do not get baths on a regular basis. A thorough scrubbing with the right shampoos and a blow dry can clean up your cats dandruff.
Loving Cat Care will use shampoos made especially for cats to remove the dandruff. The best way to prevent dandruff is regular, professional grooming.
If you've never had your cat professionally groomed, you will be amazed at the difference in how your cat smells, looks, and behaves afterward. You'll have a a fresh, soft and pleasingly fragrant cat snugged up next to you.
Keeping your cats nails trimmed short prevents damage to your skin, your furniture and your clothing. If left untrimmed for too long, the nails will grow long enough to pierce the paw pads, a painful situation for your cat and a possible infection of her pads.
Loving Cat Care can provide regular trimming along with nail cap application. Nail caps are soft blunt tips that go directly over a cat's sharp nails. They help prevent damage to you and your furniture.
Excess wax in a cat's ears will attract dirt and parasites, such as ear mites. If your cat's ears have a excess wax or your cat is scratching their ears frequently, they may need their ears to be cleaned.
Some cats, especially Persians, have eye discharge that can discolor the crease between their eyes and nose. This is a natural process that can be uncomfortable for the cat if that area is not cleaned frequently.
Cat grooming will gently remove excess wax in your cats ears using cleaners made especially for cats. We will also gently remove the eye discharge and stains.
If you notice black, pepper-like dirt in your cat's coat, it is flea dirt. Flea dirt always means that fleas are present, even when you can't see them.
Many flea shampoos that are labeled to be used on both dogs and cats can actually be toxic for cats. Loving Cat Care uses flea shampoo that is made specifically for use on cats.
Your kitty will have a full lion-like mane and full tail.
Kitty will be closely trimmed around their mane and have pom-pom tail.
Your kitty will get a bath, blow dry, nail trim, ear/eye cleaning and a sanitary shave (1 inch up the tail, backside and inner thighs).
Trim and clean nails, both front and back.
Nail caps will be glued to Kitty's front and/or back paws. Nail caps help prevent damage to your furniture and carpets.
Some cats tend to get waxy build-up in their ears which attracts dirt. If your cat is constantly scratching their ears, they may need their ears cleaned to remove excess wax and dirt.
