Salon Tours

Here is the latest video salon tour in the “Danelle Drops In” series. You can view my visits with various CFMGs around the world by visiting the “Danelle Drops In” page on the NCGIA website. It’s always fun to see where and how other cat groomers work! More salon tours coming soon!

Dream

We just finished up our October 2014 school session at the National Cat Groomers School. We are 1 session away from wrapping up our 5th year of being in business as a school (the NCGIA has been around since 2007). I am amazed. I all too clearly remember that dreary November day in 2009 when […]

May I?

In July I had the pleasure of speaking at the Grooming Festival in Birmingham, England. The show was produced by Groomers Limited and featured keynote speakers, Jodi Murphy and myself. It was a whirlwind of a weekend with a fantastic group of people who made us feel like rockstars when we were first introduced out on […]

Purrfect Ending to Another Week

Yesterday at the NCGIA, Lynn and I finished off our work day by unloading 330 lbs of freight delivered to our door. On the pallet, packed neatly into small boxes, was the inaugural edition of our Purrfect Pointers Magazine! We could hardly wait to tear into the boxes to see this new magazine for the […]

Growing Pains!

I wanted to post this great write up about Zoom Zoom Groom owned by Connie Buchanan, CFMG from Canada. I’ll be there in September for some training and the open house event of the new cat grooming facility. You know the cat grooming industry is growing when more and more dog grooming professionals are adding separate […]

Magazine for Cat Groomers

I’m super excited about our next project: turning our quarterly newsletter in a 32-page full-color magazine! Our Purrfect Pointers publication is growing by the day to include even more content than ever before. And it will be delivered straight to your physical mailbox if you are a current NCGIA member! Here’s a sneak peak at the […]

Finding a Cat Groomer

Once you’ve decided that your feline needs some professional grooming attention, you will most likely go online to begin searching for the purrfect place to provide your kitty with a spa treatment. You may be surprised to find that many groomers do not groom cats.  The groomers that do offer cat grooming services are few […]

Cat Spa Services

So you live with a cat, or two (or three) and there’s cat hair everywhere! It’s on your clothes, your bed, the living room furniture, the kitchen counter…….pretty much everywhere.  And your cat is shredding the furniture with his claws. Or maybe you just got a new sweater with a thread pulled from the sleeve […]

Well, Why Not?

Felines are exquisite creatures. Anyone who is fortunate enough to be loved by a cat knows this. The cat makes sure if it.   Cats are definitely unique in their behavior and attitudes. They are special, they know they are special, and they are very good at making sure no one ever forgets it. Unlike […]

Before She Speaks (parody)

And this one is from my “Carrie Underwood” entry in 2010 that won several awards at a show in Knoxville and the creative runway comp in Dallas.  I might have to resurrect this one some day……when I can find the time. So here’s a parody that pretty much EVERY groomer can relate to. (PS. It […]
