Why is Maintenance Necessary?
Even if your pet does not need to have fur clipped off, regular grooming / combing is important throughout the year.
Cats, especially long haired ones, have a layer of dense, soft fur beneath the coarser, outer hairs of their coat and this needs to be maintained regularly to minimise the possibility of matting. My inexpensive maintenance grooming service is just the thing your cat needs!
My maintenance grooming procedure has 3 main stages:
- After Treatment
Throughout any aspect of grooming, the tolerance level of the cat varies and I am continually aware of the stress factor. Therefore I make every effort to minimise trauma and distress.
Look at the difference with a maintenance groom. It is surprising how much hair needed to come out.
There are no short cuts with long haired cats. I would highly recommend regular maintenance grooming to avoid the extremes of partial and radical clips.

After the grooming procedure has been completed, we have a beautifully groomed and much happier cat.
Bums, Bellies and Bibs
Very often clients request that the length of hair is reduced in certain areas, as in bums, bellies and bibs to make it more practicle and hygenic.
