I groom cats on:
~ Wednesday afternoon
~ Thursday afternoon (only in the salon)
~ Friday afternoon
~ Saturday mornings
My grooming salon, a small but quiet room at my house, is located in Amsterdam Zuidoost, Montfoorthof, close to highways A2, A9 and A10 and metro station Reigersbos. Within my service areas (see below) I also do house visits.
Payment methods: ‘tikkie’, invoice, pin, cash.
Information about the treatments (for information about the fees click here)
If the cat has mats that can’t be detangled, or felted fur, the coat will be shaved off. Head, tail and legs will not be shaved.
Please note that after being groomed a shaved cat that has acces to a garden or balcony must be able to go indoors as it pleases (during each season). Also make sure the cat is kept warm during the trip home after the shaving session.
~ Combing (removal old hair / mat prevention):
Loose hair will be removed manually. This is only possible if there are no or just a few mats. If a cat has a very dense coat with a lot of onderwool (the soft fluffy hairs) that easily mats part of the underwool can be combed out where needed.
~ Combination Shaving & Combing:
It’s also possible to shave only the problem areas (for instance belly, arm pits, groins) and comb the rest of the coat.
If the cat’s coat has gotten a bit greasy or dandruffy at the end the grooming session, the cat can be sponged down with a hand cloth, and dried with a towel.
It’s possible to shower the cat with skinfriendly cat-shampoo, but this is not standard procedure because the washing itself and the dry blowing often means a lot of extra stress for the cat. Therefor this is only done in exceptional cases (!) and, for practical reasons, only in the salon. I also prefer to let the cat keep it’s own smell as much as possible. Especially if the cat is sharing its house with other pets.
Costs and service area home visits:
~ Parking costs will be charged.
~ The mileage fee for all appointments that do not take place in the grooming salon is € 0,25 / km over the entire route and two way.
To bring down grooming time spent on traveling, and because of bad knees, I can only take in new clients for house visits in :
- Amsterdam Zuidoost
- Diemen & Sniep
- Ouderkerk aan de Amstel
- Spaklerweg-area and Betondorp
PS: for cats outside this area that are already Cat Pretty-client for some time the home visit-stop does not apply.
New clients are still welcome for salon appointments. If coming to the salon is not an option for you, please contact me for information about other good and certified catgroomers in the area of Amsterdam who can still take new clients for home visits.
