Grooming Myths

Cats Groom Themselves
Cats lick themselves all over, then leave their discarded fur all over your house & clothes. Cats have greasy coats that shed, combined with licking this creates knots, mats & a dirty smelly coat. Cats who “groom” themselves without help can develop hairballs, which causes serious health issues for your cat. A cat “grooming” itself is not comparable to a professional groomed cat.
Cats don’t like Water
Majority of cats tolerate water very well and a lot even enjoy it. A bath at home when you are anxious about your cats behaviour is a very different experience to a bath with a professionally trained cat groomer who knows how to handle cats.
Cats don’t like the Blow Dryer
Some cats may take a few moments to get used to the dryer, however most cats settle into the process.
Short Haired Cats don’t Need Grooming 

Short haired cats shed a LOT. A bath, blow-dry and de-shed treatment can reduce shedding by up to 80%.
My Cat is Nervous and will Freak Out
A lot of timid cats do well with the grooming process, in fact they often surprise their owners with how well they settle into the whole grooming process.
My Cat Needs to be Sedated to be Groomed

We do not sedate any cats that we groom. 
A very small amount of cats actually NEED to be sedated for grooming and if we come across one, we are happy to refer you to a vet who can do the procedure.
We can tell you over and over again about the amazing results you will experience having your cat groomed by Kitten Cottage.

But the only way you will ever know for a fact is to bring your cats in to us. We know you will love the results.
