continued Cats can get pampering at Pink Dog Parlor, too.
“We do a lot of cat grooming … people think cats are grooming themselves when they’re licking themselves but they’re really just spreading saliva all over themselves, not cleaning, so they do need to come in occasionally,” said Kennedy, who said she grooms her own shorthair cat every few months. “Cats are separated from the dogs to make it a little less stressful for them,” said Kennedy.
Kennedy said in every situation she and her staff are extremely cognizant of how a pet is reacting to its surroundings and what’s being done to them.
“Stress is a big thing, especially in cats, and they can have severe reactions to stress. Cats could have heart failure because they’re afraid so we’re on the lookout for signs of stress in a cat, everything from eyes dilating to things like hissing or when they pant,” said Kennedy.
