Oily fur&stress go together like peanut butter&jelly?

Cat skin has sebaceous glands that secrete sebum, a greasy substance.  When stressed, the glands shift into overdrive.  This makes perfect sense. Many of the calls I receive come from homes in which the owner has either moved recently, just given birth or travels often. These can be high-stress situations for some cats.

Those glands must be pouring out oil when the vacuum cleaner monster invades the living room!

I groom cats in your own home. I do everthing needed for a soft, clean cat. Claw trims to prevent painful scratches and damaged furniture. Brushing to prevent furballs and matting. Rear-end trims to keep things clean after the litter box visit. Baths for soft, shiny fur. Clients praise my calm, gentle yet firm attitude. Cat sitting visits last 1/2 hour. Daily photo, fresh food and water, playtime, cuddles. A true "cat nanny".
