I'm looking for a groomer for my Persian that does lion cuts. Can someone recommend a good one that loves animals and would be gentle with my cat? I live in Morrisville so I would prefer Morrisville/Cary/ W. Raleigh or Apex but would drive longer if I can find a good one that's highly recommended. Thanks for any suggestions!

It's a little further, but if you call the PetSmart in Garner, Ms. Bianca is wonderful with cats. She prefers to only do cats on Sundays, they try not to have many dogs so there is less stress and distraction to the cats. She does a lion cut on my domestic long-haired cat twice a year. Sorry I can't recommend anyone closer to you, but she in wonderful. There are 2 Petsmarts in Garner, you want the one next to the Home Depot @ the Kroger shopping center, corner of Hwy 70 and Timber Drive. She loves my boo-boo kitty and always says what an angel he is. I'm glad he's an angel for her, all I do is try to brush the cat out and I come out on the losing end of that battle all the time!!

This HAS to be the world's most dangerous job!!! Who in their right mind would mess with cats for a living?!?! lol jk... I have a cat and she's wonderful. We have "an understanding" but I'm just glad I don't have to groom her!

Sorry, I wish I knew of someone to recommend for you!

Thanks tassy! Unless I hear of one closer I will definatly look into taking my furball baby "George" to Bianca. I just moved here from Forida and my old cat groomer loved George, he always told me that he was the nicest cat (if George can tolerate my 3 yr. old screaming and running after him all the time then he can tolerate anything). I just don't want to bring him to just anyone - I would hate to think of him being mistreated. BTW, do you know if they apply softpaws? Those are the plastic caps that they glue on cats that are not declawed.

LOL raccemup, you're right, that is pretty dangerous! Especially when the cat isn't declawed like mine!

Don't know if they do the softpaws or not, but I just love her to death. My cat just knows that she is charge and doesn't give her a bit of trouble. Now there has been an instance or two where she has had me come back to the table with her while she shaves his tummy if he's been matted real bad and then up close to his little male parts. But other than that, I leave him with her for a few hours and come back to a whole new cat! There are other groomers there as well, and I don't know if any of them work on cats too. But I always specifically ask to make sure she does him. She's been there quite a while, and the other younger girls seem to come and go.

Tassy,
I just got off the phone with the PetSmart in Garner where I tried to speak with Ms. Bianca........she is no longer there. I also have a Persian that needs to be groomed, mats. Do you know of any other gentle groomers, or do you know where Ms. Bianca went?
