Deborah started cat grooming in 2013 with no previous grooming experience.
Deborah Hansen opened her feline exclusive house call grooming business in June 2013, after almost 20 years as an elementary educator. In that time, she has groomed over 3,000 cats. Each groom consisted of at least a nail trim, bath, ear cleaning and drying. Most of the grooms included some shaving or a suction deshed.
Deborah exclusively grooms on the floor in her lap always using the least restrictive methods possible for each groom. While her education began at the National Cat Groomers Institute, and she earned the title Certified Feline Master Groomer, she has spent time learning more holistic methods.
Deborah likes to say she meets the cat where the cat is and works from there. If trust and respect can be built, the grooming process is a very calm and relaxing procedure. However, if for medical reasons, a cat needs to be groomed, she has the skills and training to groom the most aggressive cats.
Deborah’s training and experience have always focused on the area of feline grooming. While she is familiar with basic dog grooming, dogs are not her speciality.
