Spiffy Kitty can help.
I want to groom your cat!
I earned a grooming certificate at grooming school, after learning about cats by working in veterinary clinics and shelters for over 1,000 hours. I interned at the Bronx Zoo as an animal keeper assistant, spending time with the big cats. My schooling includes studying biology and chemistry at Hunter and Baruch Colleges, winning a scholarship based on grades, followed by a year studying veterinary sciences at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Licensed NY business since 2012. Insured.
Where do you live? My housecall travel area is 116th street in Manhattan to lower Manhattan. Long Island City with a $25 fee. Some other areas may be included with a pre-paid $50 deposit.
Tuesday through Saturday 8 to 3. Closed after 3 p.m.
So what’s the dealio?
Can you, and other adults in your home, pick up and hold your cat without concern about scratching, hissing or biting? If you can, my service is for you.
** If you can’t, please talk to your vet about mild or complete sedation for grooming. I will groom cats who are sedated according to veterinary instructions.
Do you have bright lighting, enough room to spread out large towels, and for cat baths, a large enough kitchen sink with forceful water pressure and swift drainage? If yes, my service is for you.
Soft clean kitty or dirty little kitty?
**If you want a soft, clean cat with short claws, no mats, no furballs, and minimal shedding, please schedule weekly, every-other week, or at most, monthly, visits. My service is not meant to handle once-a-year clients, since I need to get to know your cat.
