We, CFMGs, are the few and the proud.
Did you know that in early 2016, there were approximately 264 professionally trained CFMGs worldwide? That means 264 people studied, learned and tested to become one of the few and the proud, Certified Feline Master Groomers In. The. World.
If you a proud owner of a feline masterpiece, then only the best should handle your treasure. Look for a CFMG in your area. Most will be lucky to find one or two.
There are a few schools teaching groomers proper techniques for grooming cats and for handling cats. Not the licking of cats…grooming of cats.
Mine is NCGIA and I am your CFMG.
That means, I know how to assess the personality of the animal before handling it.
How to assess coat condition, in order to determine what treatment is best for the cat. For the coat and the personality, taking into account the health and age of your feline.
I also know how to handle your cat firmly and gently.
I know how to achieve a variety of styles.
All of this is done without sedation.
I know how to trim your cat’s nails. How to bath your cat. How to clean out its ears and all the wonderful wax that has accumulated in the ear canals. How to dry your cat. I know how to make your feline look and feel like a million bucks!
