How does Hey Good Cat groom cats differently?
Our team consists of Fear Free Certified and Low-Stress Handling Certified professionals, and preventing and alleviating fear, stress and anxiety is the priority in our approach. We take time to understand each and every cat's tolerance towards grooming, and customise our approach to encourage positive associations. Potential stressors in the environment are kept to a minimum and each cat receive undivided attention while they are on the grooming table. For pets with behavioural challenges, we go with their pace instead of forcing them through a groom.
My cat is aggressive, do you handle aggressive cats?
We feel your struggles and strive our best to help each and every cat that comes through our door. We can and have successfully groomed many cats with behavioural challenges. As each cat is uniquely different, please reach out to us to discuss your concerns so we can better assess the situation.
In order for grooming to happen, the minimum requirement is that you must be able to at least pick up your cat and in worst case scenarios, be able to put on the elizabethan collar for your cat. We will assess each situation individually and will stop any grooming procedures if it's more that what the cat can handle in order to preserve their mental wellbeing.
Please feel free to bring your cat's favourite treats or items at home that they might find comforting.
Do note that there may be a service fee of $20 onwards if we require additional manpower and/or time to complete the grooming service for your cat.
Can I bring along my cat's favourite treats to the session?
Yes of course! We encourage rewarding and please feel free to. :)
How often should my cat be groomed?
At least a bath every 6 weeks is recommended.
Can I leave my cat at the studio after grooming?
We encourage families to pick up their cats as soon as they are done with grooming (within half an hour from grooming completion). Should circumstances prevent you from doing so, we will check in your cat to our cat retreat.
My cat is old/disabled and is unable to stand for prolonged periods. Are you able to groom my cat?
Definitely! Do inform us in advance if your cat is unable to stand or require special care so that we can cater additional time for him or her.
My cat has sensitive skin and I’m quite concerned about the cleanliness of the grooming tools. Are your grooming tools sterile?
Our tools are sterilised between sessions with each animal client with a special disinfectant spray. Our tools and table are also wiped down between sessions with a disinfectant solution. You can be assured that we do not use dirty tools on your beloved pet!
How long in advance should I book an appointment?
You should book the grooming appointment at least a month in advance.
