Mobile Cat Groomer, Jan Littlemore from Catskingdom which covers Leatherhead, has this advice on grooming
Is your wriggly cat looking a bit scruffy because you find it very difficult to keep him well groomed. Does he run away when he sees the brush? If he does, it could be because your cat thinks it is a game and attacks the brush every time you try to groom him. You may have given up grooming or if you do, you avoid those no go areas like the tummy and back legs. Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before tangles and mats start to develop especially in long haired cats.
Jan, who is a master cat groomer – the highest qualification in the field for grooming, has trained in cat handling techniques and reading a cat’s body language. She has a gentle relaxed approach drawing on her complementary therapy experience. – she is taking this one step further by training in healing for animals.
Jan works in the comfort of a cat’s own familiar environment as they are territorial animals. It can be stressful for them to be taken out of their homes to dog grooming salons or into a mobile van parked outside your home.
That is why Catskingdom only grooms in the cat’s own home. Owners can also be present to reassure their cat if needed. If any loose hair remains in the coat from the summer moult, it can mat with the new winter growth coming in.
We always get a large number of enquiries at the beginning of every New Year when cats’ coats suddenly become matted – shaving is the only way to remove them.
Contact us to brush through the coat and remove tangles and knots before they develop into mats. This will avoid the need for large (and uncomfortable or painful) areas of matted fur to be shaved off. which is a less stressful experience for both cat and groomer.
A well groomed cat is a happy and healthier cat! If you are in Leatherhead or the surrounding area and want to keep your cat’s coat in top condition please get in touch with Jan at Catskingdom Mobile Cat Grooming.
