Love and dried-out cat food

I’ve noticed that some of the cat owners I talk to are confused. These are the owners who have one scratching post (purchased in 2003 and left in a corner, festooned with the original catnip from 2003), wet food turning to concrete on a plate, and a litter box that is best left undescribed. The last time they played with, or brushed, their cat was when the cat was a cute little kitten. Now their cat is ten years old, fat, and bored stiff.
Yet the owners rhapsodize about their love for their cat and express horror when I suggest bathing the cat.
If a child were dirty, fed dried out food, and given no stimulation of any kind, would you think that child was loved? A cat is not a child, and a child is not a cat, but still . . . some basic level of care is a good idea.

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".
