"Linda is an amazing cat care person. She asked a lot of questions and assessed the animal's condition and personality... She taught me how to trim their nails and recommended the right tools for each of them, it was just wonderful. The kitties smelled so good and looked great. I'm thrilled that she started this business for cats in a safe, clean, dog-free environment."

Ozzy - Short Hair Groom with Nail Caps

Ozzy groom

"Loving Cat Care took excellent care of our cat, Ozy...Ozy got a very princely treatment with an ear cleaning and a light grooming as well. Linda did a fantastic job and Ozy barely notices his nail caps. He's happy and healthy and NOT tearing up furniture at our new residence. 

Highly, highly recommended. Our cat was treated like family because our pets ARE family! Thanks Linda!"

- Richard A.

Luna - Short Hair Groom

Sean A cat

"You should definitely take your fur friend here! Ms. Linda was amazing with my cat. She was very thorough and quick with my kitty. Very affordable care, the convenience was more than satisfactory, and she provides more personal care than you would expect from a corporate groomer. Would recommend over and over again and I can't wait until my cat needs to be groomed again."

- Sean A.

"Linda was so caring and gentle with my senior cat that was badly matted. I was so worried but she put my fears to rest and gave my baby the full spa treatment. Thank you, Linda."
