Does protective gear & e-collar & restraint make scared kitties become aggressive?

Dilemna. Cat stiff, scared, quiet. Wear protective gear. Next visit, cat is more scared.

Ir don’t wear gear, no e-collar, light restraint, kitty might eventually relax…OR might bite & scratch groomer.

WANT to use little to no restraint, BUT scratches and bites can do big damage. My dilemna.

How to make money with petcare. Part 1

Same as making income from any other business.

Find out what people want by trial and error. TRIAL AND ERROR.

Don’t listen to anyone except your customers.

If what a customer says doesn’t match where they spend their money, ignore what they say.

Don’t get hurt.

Don’t hurt anyone.

Do a job other people don’t want to do. (Everyone wants to petsit kittens.)

Cesar Milan, dog training guru, works with dogs so dangerous that NO ONE ELSE will even try.

Intergroom Fun for Cat Groomers

I took the #320 bus to Secaucus last Friday. Why? Because of Intergroom, a trade show and educational event for pet groomers.  I ogled grooming implements, especially the luxurious made-in-Japan gold Utsumi combs which are so beautiful.

Then I attended a useful seminar, “Handling Techniques for Cat Grooming.”  The fun part of going to grooming seminars is watching adorable cats being used as “models”.

Continuing education makes for a better groomer.
