Step 1: Consultation and Check-In (10 minutes)

At The Rich Groomer, the cat grooming process begins with an initial assessment and consultation. The groomer will examine your cat's coat, skin, and overall condition, discussing any specific concerns or requests you may have.

Step 2: Brushing and Removing Mats (20-30 minutes):

Depending on your cat's needs and preferences, The Rich Groomer may proceed with a bath. Cats that tolerate water will be bathed using specially formulated cat shampoos and conditioners. The groomer will carefully rinse and dry your cat, ensuring their comfort throughout the process.

Step 6: Coat Styling and Finishing Touches (15-20 minutes):

For long-haired cats or those with specific styling requirements, The Rich Groomer offers coat styling services.

Finishing touches, such as brushing and applying cat-safe grooming products, are also done to enhance the appearance of your cat's coat.

Step 7: Final Assessment and Post-Grooming Care Recommendations (10 minutes):

Before concluding the grooming session, the groomer will conduct a final assessment, ensuring all grooming tasks have been completed to your satisfaction. They may also provide recommendations for post-grooming care, such as grooming maintenance tips or suggestions for at-home grooming practices.
