Reiki is so flakey. Grab a comb and brush instead.

Cat groomers wash, shave or trim, and blow-dry cats. Our goal is comfort and cleanliness. We improve the lives of cats.  Short-term, the cat may not appreciate the attention, to say the least. Cat grooming is physical labor. Groomers can be injured on the job, while slipping on wet floors, lifting a fat pet, being bitten or scratched.

Reiki is faith healing.  Some groomers are drawn to reiki.  I can see why.  Reiki is clean and peaceful. No scratches or bites. No shampoo.  No wet towels.

Owners can gain a sense of peace from watching their pet receive faith healing, aka reiki.  That’s a gift to the owner.  I’m guessing the cat appreciates the attention and affection.

The problem is that the actions that do help an animal aren’t so pretty and peaceful.  Combing and brushing take time and effort.

I say, “Reiki is so flakey. Grab a comb and brush.”

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".
