Welcome on the website of Cat Pretty Cat Grooming Services!
My name is Saskia Heijboer and I’m a certificated pet groomer specialized in grooming cats. I completed my training at the Martin Gaus Academie in the spring of 2012, where I followed their professional Cat Grooming training program for grooming cats without sedation. Earlier my grooming salon “Cat Pretty” already had a flying start. At that time I was one of the first cat grooming specialists in Amsterdam and the need for cat groomers was hight.
I am located in Amsterdam Zuidoost and I can help you keeping your cat healthy, happy and (if not too many mats …) looking good. I can take away painful mats and felted fur, in most cases by using a clipping machine. Mat prevention is also a big part of my work; brushing out old hair or remove part of the underwool from very dense coats. The grooming is done without sedation. Only when cats experience extreme stress it’s better to have them groomed at the vet under sedation.
Please note that it is not my policy to shave cats only because they are shedding. The cat’s fur is part of the body and has important functions. I only shave cats in case of mats (removal or prevention) or other (medical) conditions that will improve the well being of the cat by shaving.
Do you have a fluffy longhaired cat with mats and tangles? Or “just an ordinary” breedless shorthair cat with a bad coat caused by illness, obesity or old age? Feel free to contact me for questions or to make an appointment.
I groom cats on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon, Friday afternoon and on Saturday mornings, next to my regular office job.
In case of cancellation: please let me know a.s.a.p. (so that I can try to help another cat instead) but 24 hours in advance at the latest. Thank you!
You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me by phone: 06 – 42368073. Please note that my phone often is in silent mode during grooming. Leave a voice or text message or contact me via WhatsApp.
My grooming salon in Amsterdam Zuidoost is located at Montfoorthof 133 (please note: salon visits by appointment only). Near A2, A9, A10 and Reigersbos metro station. Free parking.
New client-stop for house visits: Since lugging around around with my grooming tools has become physically too demanding and because my schedule no longer allows scheduling in a lot of time for travelling, I can no longer accept new clients for appointments at home. New clients are of course welcome to make an appointment in the salon. If you have mobility issues and live within my service area I may be able to make an exception. (extra costs : 35 cent travel allowance per km from postal code 1106 JV, two way + parking in case of paid parking)
** For regular Cat Pretty clients house visits can still be planned, if that was customary until now. **
