When it comes to cats and dogs, there is a distinct difference between a ratty, scruffy coat and one that is plagued by mange. The latter is caused by miniscule mites and cannot be cured with a simple bubble bath. Animals with mange need immediate attention because the condition is life threatening when left untreated. If your pet’s coat is looking uncharacteristically shabby, you may want to become familiar with the symptoms and home remedies for mange.
Cats can be very tolerant of baths and certainly of brushing; the main difference between grooming a dog vs. grooming a cat is, you can TELL a dog that it needs to be groomed, whereas with a cat, you have to ASK him. If he says “No!” (as cats can, in many ways!), simply back off, relax and re-ask more slowly again. Eventually, if you approach the process calmly and deliberately, without overwhelming kitty, you will be surprised to find that most cats not only will tolerate regular brushing, bathing and/or nail trimming, but some actually enjoy it, and are quite comfortable with the process! Ideally, it is best to start them on a regular grooming schedule when they are young; in fact, many people who are mildly allergic to cats have found that they can keep a cat in their home without allergic reaction by regularly bathing them every few weeks or so.

Our professional groomers are available to provide luxury baths with soothing massages, specialized trimming, and even custom hairstyles. Ask us about our unique “Bodi Cut”! This trim is ideal for dogs who want to keep most of their fur, but prefer not to drag too much mud into your home. And yes, you read correctly: We groom cats!Cats can be surprisingly easy to groom; and should be regularly, a fact that many people do not realize – not only that you can bathe a cat, but that you even should! Sadly, many cats who are given up or “gotten rid of” because of allergies by their human caretakers probably could have stayed in their home if the owner had gotten the cat groomed on a regular basis. Regular brushing/bathing of cats greatly reduces the dried saliva/bacteria that is present in a cat’s coat (from their own self-bathing), which is the main allergen to people. This is why so many more people are allergic to cats than dogs – it is not the hair, or the dander, it is because cats bathe themselves so much more frequently than dogs do and leave a residue on their coats that can cause a reaction in people.
