I groom cats on:
~ Wednesday afternoon
~ Thursday afternoon
~ 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.
Payment methods: preferably by ‘Tikkie’ (bank payment request). But cash and invoice are also possible.
Information about the costs.
The cost of treatment depends on the coat condition and the treatment chosen. In choosing the treatment, the well-being of the cat always comes first. You can find an overview of the most common treatments here.
Cancellation is possible without charge up to 24 hours in advance.
PLEASE NOTE: When you make an appointment I schedule time for your dear cat in my diary. In case of cancellation on the day of the appointment a fee (€ 25) will be charged for the scheduled grooming time and preparation time. In exceptional cases this may be waived.
Information about the treatments
If the cat has mats that can’t be detangled, or felted fur, the matted parts will be shaved (trimmed with low noise clipping machine). Head, tail and legs will not be shaved, unless there are mats there too.
Please note that after being groomed a shaved cat that has access 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):
Old, loose hair will be combed out with several types of combs and brushed. This is only possible if there are no or just a few mats.
~ Combination Shaving & Combing:
It’s also possible to shave only the problem areas (for instance belly, arm pits, groins, hamstrings) or only the area under the tail (sanitary trim) 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.
Showering the cat is not regular procedure in my salon. Washing and the dry blowing afterwards often mean a lot of extra stress for the cat. Therefor this is only done for medical reasons. 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.
