Powder Puff Cattery
I called today to make a reservation. I am sorry to say that the owner is no longer operating the cattery. This is such a disappointment because it was truly a wonderful place to board your cat. Now I am looking all over to find a suitable place for my cat. I'm not sure anyone else will be as loving as Powder Puff Cattery.:( :( :( :(

Mutt Puddles Dog Wash
5 STARS all the way for Mutt Puddles..!I have 3 Yorkies , . one being a teacup, so to find a great place like this that takes Great Care of my three children plus the BEST priced dog wash/groomers around is a BIG PLUS. I have been going there for over a year now and every time I receive nothing but the BEST service. All I can say is you will not be disappointed the Service, Price and especially the Care the owners give to your dog., what more can you ask for.
Tips & Advices
Many people fear that their pet will be injured at the groomer, but incidents of serious injury are infrequent. For minor injuries , it is appropriate the groomer pay the vet bill, and can usually be worked out between groomer and owner. For moderate to severe injuries, you can attempt to activate groomer’s liability insurance to cover medical expenses. However, be aware that most groomer contracts stipulate that the business does not assume responsibility.
Staff at groomers know that there is inherent risk when handling animals, and they are familiar with being snapped at or bitten. However, it is not a normal occurrence or something you should ignore. Many people choose to cover medical expenses or pay extra--at minimum, apologize and get the dog into behavior classes. It is a given that  you should sedate or muzzle the animal for all future grooming sessions.
It is always recommended to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. While some groomers, especially in the larger pet stores, can accommodate with short notice, popular neighborhood groomers are often booked out two weeks out or longer on weekends.
If your pet has sensitive skin, let the groomer know when you set the appointment. But be aware, all dogs have sensitive skin by human standards--their skin is much thinner. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for signs of sensitivity, and reduce it through regular grooming with gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner. Oatmeal shampoo is a favorite. Daily brushouts and omega oil supplements are recommended for every day at-home care.
For various reasons including insurance clauses and pet-owner relationship dynamics and behaviors, groomers prefer owners don’t stay with their pets while being groomed.
