Slightly Slimy Stories of Feline Run Afoul
A worried owner calls asking for an emergency grooming appointment for her cat, Molly who has a mat of fur near her rump that is driving her crazy. One of our male employees, a gentle giant, carefully combs through Molly's coat, hoping to relieve her irritation, he finds a fur-entrapped garden slug, eliciting a chorus of "eeww's" from everyone watching!

Harmony and Dissonance
in the Multiple Cat Household Love Me Love Me Not
Why do some cats adore each other while others can't pass each other without swatting or hissing? Why are these often the same two cats, alternating between affection and aggression? These are common questions in multiple cat households, which represent more than half of all homes with pet cats. There are solutions for improving the social dynamics among co-habitating cats, and a harmonious feline household often needs to start with proper introductions.
Dr. Suzanne Hetts, a veterinary behaviorist, provides tips on helping cats co-exist. She emphasizes how important it is to introduce a new cat to an existing cat extremely slowly, never allowing animosity to build. Because cats are not naturally social with other cats in the way dogs are, a new cat is certainly not initially seen as a new playmate but rather a competitor. This can lead to fear, anxiety, and aggression in one or both cats.

Announcing Expanded Grooming Services Coming Soon! 
We are happy to announce we will be expanding our grooming services in the next few weeks. Not only will we do medical grooming, we will also offer full-service grooming to prevent long-haired cats from developing mats, to keep cats cool in warm weather or to get cats primped for a special event like a cat show. 

Recently, Joy Bracken-Cobo joined our team and will be heading up our grooming services. She comes with many years of experience having owned her own grooming salon and was the head groomer in a cat practice in California. Watch for more detailed information on our expanded grooming services coming soon to your inbox. 
Store Spotlight
Scratcher Sale For cats, scratching things in their environment is perfectly normal. It's one way they mark their safe territory and it is also vital for the health of the claws. Every kitty must have a spot to scratch, and cardboard scratchers are a great way to provide that with very little cost. 

Kitty Cot Now that it's summer, maybe your cat would enjoy the ultimate window perch - the Kitty Cot attaches to any window for the best view in the house! And, don't forget, keeping your cat hydrated is even more important in the summer months. Investing in a circulating drinking fountain will entice your cat to increase their water intake, which has so many health benefits!
