| Sorry to all, but we are not doing cat grooming at this time.
The above pictures are real: This is not a shaved cat, in fact, her "hair" is left totally intact.
All the fur on the floor is "undercoat," and you and your cat, Don't....Need....Any....of...it !!
Our specialized cat grooming can solve all you grooming issues once and for all.
This shows the amount of undercoat a cat groomer can get out of every cat by de-waxing their
skin...skin de-waxing is free with every bath. It is the underlying problem of shedding and matting
The below write-up of cat skin de-waxing is long...but isn't your cat worth it? Reading this will
likely solve your cat grooming issues once and for all and doesn't everybody love a hair-free
*Throughout the day cats are offered a litter box, food/water, catnip,
catnaps (every 7 minutes), fish flakes, love, and cat movies
Think Your Cat Doesn't Need a Bath ??
THINK AGAIN !!
It is a myth that cat's don't need baths, here's why:
DOES YOUR CAT SHED A LOT? HAVE HAIRBALLS? Throw-up food?
HAVE WHAT LOOKS LIKE DRY SKIN? GET MATTED?
Do you get cat hair in your eyes and don't know why? (undercoat floats in the air)
***Undercoat is responsible for many of these problems.
What causes allergies to cats is skin dander, undercoat, and the protein in cat saliva that sticks to cat hair and undercoat. These three
major things "float in the air" and expose the nose, mouth, and eyes to the allergens. Cat skin-dewaxing, massive undercoat raking, and
colloidal oatmeal baths are how we address all three. While there is no such thing as a hypo-allergenic cat, the "Siberian" cat, for
example, lacks this protein and is considered the least allergic of cats.
If your cat hasn't had his skin de-waxed in the last year, you probably have one of
the above listed problems!
The answer is simple, when we domesticated cats and brought them into our homes, we forgot that their bodies
were genetically designed for the outdoors. As they were exposed to the weather, cat's developed a waxy
skin-coating that locked-in their undercoat. This skin-coating also told their bodies to keep producing more
undercoat in order to stay warm in cold weather, this is how they survived below zero temperatures.
Outdoors, a cat's coat would build a thick layer of cotton-like fibers (called undercoat) to keep them-
selves warm. Our indoor cat's don't need this thick fibrous undercoat. This waxy coating on the
skin in usually not seen by the human eye. It's much like when we take a bath for two hours and dry off
with a rough towel, we see lots of white dead skin cells. With a blue de-waxer that is rubbed into the
cat's skin for 15 minutes, all the cat's waxy skin build-up, or dandruff is gently brushed out. The result is
that the cat's massive undercoat can now be stripped away and you'll have up to 80% less shedding and
