The grooming sector of the industry continues to grow to meet the increasing demands of consumers, including cat owners. Dogs are no longer the only stars of the grooming world; cats are catching up. More groomers are brushing up on their cat-grooming skills and offering services catered to felines.

Although cats are known for their ability to keep themselves clean, that’s not enough to keep their coats healthy, especially if they have medical conditions and are unable to. Keeping their fur brushed, their nails trimmed and their teeth clean are all connected to maintaining their quality of life. That’s why the industry is responding with more services and products. And more importantly, the industry is doing this by catering to both groomers and consumers.

Simply having a few brushes and nail clippers on the shelves for cat owners is not sufficient enough to keep up with competition, nor will it further establish your relationship with your cat-owning customers. For example, if you only offer a small amount of cat grooming products but have a wide variety of dog grooming products, your customer might look to either a competitor or other business for what they are looking for because they have more options. Consumers are demanding quantity along with quality and diversity of products, especially as cat grooming becomes more popular.

These products are perfect additions to your shelves. Whether it smells amazing or addresses any feline sensitivities or allergies, there’s a product that groomers and consumers want for the various needs of cats. And each product features only the best ingredients and materials, so consumers can be satisfied not only with a high-quality product but that cats are receiving the same high-quality care as any other pet.
