Cat Grooming Services

Cats are majestic creatures. One of the things they are known for, which distinguishes them from some other pets, is their penchant for licking themselves. While this is often understood to be or referred to as grooming, this constant self-licking doesn't actually clean.

To achieve optimal health, beauty, and comfort, your cat requires cat grooming services. You want nothing but the best for you cat in all ways, from the food you feed her to the toys and scratching posts you give her. Shouldn't this apply to the cat grooming service you use? Your cats deserve Cats Only for all of their cat grooming needs.

Benefits of Cat Grooming

Sometimes your beautiful feline can use a little boost and some special attention. Professional grooming has benefits for your kitty beyond a pretty, shiny coat or a fun fur-style. Professional cat grooming has many benefits both for your cat and for the people around your cat.

Cats benefit from professional cat grooming services by experiencing:

  • Less matting. A cat's fur is very prone to tangling and, eventually, matting. This is especially true for long hair breeds and outdoor cats. Beyond presenting an obstruction when petting your cat, matted fur can be problematic. It can cause discomfort and, in more extreme cases, even pain and infection. Grooming addresses existing mats, and regularly scheduled grooming prevents mats from forming in the future.
  • Health benefits. Grooming promotes a healthy coat and better health overall. Brushing your cat's coat increases blood flow and promotes the production of natural oils that make their skin healthy and their coat shiny.
  • Pest control. Because cats shed often, dead hair is constantly present in their coats. Proper brushing removes the dead hair and other unwanted particles caught in their coat, such as dust, dander, dirt, and pests like fleas and other bugs. Keeping the coat clean by grooming also keeps your kitty from ingesting these particles when they lick themselves. And if your pet does pick up a flea, tick, or another parasite, grooming gives you a chance to catch it early and treat it quickly, keeping your cat healthier and safer.
  • Relaxation and comfort. Many cats enjoy grooming. Though this is not the case for all cats, grooming a cat who likes to be groomed helps them relax and be more comfortable. It can be a helpful tool for reducing stress. Grooming older cats and cats with disabilities or mobility problems is a way to help your pet stay comfortable and healthy.

Additionally, the human companions of a well-groomed cat experiences:

  • Relief from allergies. Cats produce an allergen through their saliva to which many humans are sensitive. Also, cats pick up a lot of pollen, dust, and other allergens in their coat. Regular cat grooming protects the people in your home from exposure to all these allergens.
  • Relief from cleaning. All cat owners are all too familiar with finding cat hair on every square inch of everything we own. Having your cat groomed professionally on a regular basis minimizes the amount that they shed. Shedding is natural and important to your cat's health, but controlling shedding through grooming and brushing means less having to clean fur off of your furniture, clothes, floor, and surfaces. Less shedding also means less hairballs.
