What is a "comb cut"?

Need to reduce the hair on your cat, but don't want them naked... here's a solution for you!



What kind of cat get's this type of grooming?

Generally most healthy cats that are between the ages of 6 months and 14 years old are eligible for this (sometimes even older!)  This is mostly done on a typical medium or long haired cats, but on rare occasion a short hair comes in for this too!

Prince is a cat I began grooming back when I was doing cats & dogs in the same shop "Jazzy Grooms". This cat was stellar for his first groom! 1/2" comb cut!

When I go over a list of services, some people simply skip right over a ''comb cut'' because they don't really know what it is. This is a short video blog description of what a comb cut is and how it's done, and what it looks like on a real cat!

Both videos currently show a trim closer to the teddy bear trim, we'll try and get a winters lion cut here soon. 

"winters lion cut" = 1/4" to 1/2" length left on body, with all the classic lion cut line patterns. Boot have a distinctive flare, tail can be left full or with the classic bob on the end. 

"Teddy bear trim"= 1/2" to 3/4" length left on body, with all lines blended and mane blended into body length. Gives the appearance of a short hair cat all around, yet still plush like a teddy bear.

Still have questions about this service? or not sure if this is the right one for your specific cat? 

Give us a call, we would be happy to help answer any of your questions and see if this will help you out!

What education and or certifications does this groomer have? or are pursing currently?
While grooming isn't necessarily a regulated field requiring a degree to get into... it is a field that allows you to see a wide variety of talents and skills. Since there are no licensing requirements it is imperative that owners take it in their own hands to research who they are trusting their kitty with!
