Jan grooms Sparkle a Maine Coon from Sutton.

Who can resist gently stroking a long-haired cat perhaps on a cosy night in in front of the fire. Yet as many owners know, grooming long-haired cats is not always a relaxing experience.

“Cats prefer being in their own home. Most breeds do not like being put in a carrier and taken out of their environment. So if they are transported somewhere else even before the grooming has begun, the cat will be stressed,” says Master cat groomer, Jan Littlemore. “This will make the grooming much harder.”

Familiar Surroundings

Jan says that when she grooms cats she always does it in the cat’s own familiar surroundings.

“There are some cat groomers who groom in a parked van on the drive but this can still be stressful for the animal as they are essentially away from the area they know.”

Jan draws on her own experience as a professional aromatherapist to make cats feel relaxed.

“The key is to make the grooming experience as relaxing as possible. This is why I like to groom cats at the same time and in the same place each time I visit. I will not force a cat to be groomed. In some cases several sessions may be needed to put particularly nervous animals at ease.”

Jan says that regular grooming:

  • Removes loose hair
  • Helps to improve muscle tone & skin condition
  • Keeps the coat waterproof
  • Regulates the cat’s temperature

“Regular professional grooming carried out in the pets’ own home is essential for the cats’ well-being,” explains Jan.

First-Class Reputation

Jan has built-up a first-class reputation as a cat groomer. She is a Master Cat Groomer – the highest qualification in the field.
