Can adults pick up and hold your cat without getting scratched or bitten? If yes, my cat grooming service is for you. If your cat does not allow handling, I may be able to visit if your cat is given anti-anxiety drug Gabapentin. Please check with your veterinarian.

Most cat grooming takes place in the kitchen or the bathroom.

This is Archie, a young Maine Coon cat. I groom him every 3 weeks. He gets a claw trim, deshedding, sanitary and ruff trim, dematting, moussette dry shampoo, plus lots of kitty cuddles.
