I have been a groomer for 30 years and take great care and pride in my work.
I was never comfortable grooming cats, they are dangerous and unpredictable, when grooming them. Cats have a unique sense of self preservation. As a cat groomer, it is just a matter of time until we are bitten or scratched. For some reason my end results on a cat grooming, the good cats, I was never satisfied with the finished look, so I did not groom cats.
On one of my continuing education classes I met Danelle German, founder and president of the National Cat Groomers Institute of America and a whole new world was opened to me, professional cat grooming. So I attended the National Cat Groomers Institute of America and graduated Certified Master Feline Groomer, the first one in the state of NC.
Danelle taught me how to groom cats properly and with a show worthy finish. I now saw the great need in Charlotte for a "cats only" grooming facility and Feline Fabulous came into existence.
Grooming has been my passion and now I feel good about our cat grooming results. We treat all cats as if they were my own. The grooming process with cats is very important, we provide a dog free environment, dogs will immediately put a cat on the defensive, we go by appointment, because the time on a cat groom is critical. Working quickly, thoroughly and efficiently, this will create the best condition for grooming cats. We here at Feline Fabulous want to educate you on whats best for you and your cat, explore your needs and see how we can best serve you.
