For our Pet Issue: The Purrfect Cat Groomer
In this day and time, we seldom have an opportunity to spend time with our pets. The maintenance and upkeep can sometimes be overwhelming when we have to take on our own everyday tasks. Nevertheless, our pets are living, breathing creatures. They are entitled to a little pampering every now and then. But who can you trust with one of your unofficial children??
I’ve most recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Elizabeth Farmer of The Purrfect Cat Groomer. In the first five minutes of our interaction, I had learned things about cats that I never thought possible. I don’t want to ruin the personal experience she gives with my recollections, but I can tell you more about how fascinating this woman is, as leader of this company.
Elizabeth Farmer made a smooth transition from being a flight attendant of 20 years to one of the most acclaimed cat groomers in all of South Florida. She attended one of the most prestigious grooming schools that Fort Lauderdale has to offer (Merryfield School of Pet Grooming), and then continued her endeavors at The National Cat Groomers Institute of America (Greenville, SC). If you guys are thinking, “How could there be such a thing?” you’ve taken the words right out of my mouth. Needless to say, Ms. Farmer comes from a large background of education in her field. She is 1 of only 5 people in the state with a Master’s Degree in Cat Grooming!
With pet grooming being such an unregulated industry, it benefits the owner to have someone that is as caring and experienced as Ms. Farmer. Her steps for completing such a difficult task are polished, and well thought out. She goes through a thorough interview (with the owners), often asking questions pertaining to length of ownership, and how often the pet gets groomed. Having such a high reputation allows for her to maintain good communication with local veterinary facilities in southeastern Florida.
After a couple minutes, my interview was shifted suddenly by an answer she provided for one of my questions: where are you located? She actually services most of the Southeastern part of Florida by appointment, AT THEIR OWN HOUSES! This takes away almost every hassle that you can even think of when considering a grooming appointment. She’s right at your door! Let your cats and kittens be pampered at least once!
