Ballyclare Cattery

Working exclusively with cats, Jonny is a qualified Professional Pet Groomer, whose techniques are recognised as the best available for cat grooming, including exclusive lap work for the cats comfort.


'Glamour Puss' is a range of Grooming Services offering bassic treatments to full grooms and clips. As you would expect, all of the shampoos, conditioners and grooming products used are of the highest quality and are developed by companies with veterinary guidance.

Combining competitive prices with professionalism, guaranteed cat comfort and the highest quality grooming services, 'Glamour Puss' should be the first port of call should your cat need a shaving, clipping or grooming service. Please see a list of our services below:

The Blueberry Dip

A basic groom for all breeds of cats including an intensive brush out and dry bath with a blueberry scented shampoo. This 30 minute treatment will remove debris and dead fur (which will cut down dramatically on shedding) and can prevent mats and skin ailments whilst helping to prmote a healthy coat.

The Full Groom

The service includes:

* Clipping off or brushing out all knots and mats

* Brushing out the entire coat with Conditioning, Instant Detangling Spray or Foam Shampoo (no rinse required)

* Cleaning the Ears and Eyes with Ear and Eye Wipes

* Cleaning the teeth with Tooth & Gum Wipes

* Styling the cat’s coat on the request of the customer: tidy up the paws, trimming the coat with scissors to finish, clip off bottom area/belly and tidying up the chest/mane

* Wiping the cat’s body with J. P. Mitchell Full Body & Paw Bath Wipes

* A finishing hair treatment with Liquid silk protein for the coat

* For sensitive skin, Medicated Aloe Vera Veterinary Formula, if required at no extra charge

* Advice on cat grooming tools, grooming products and grooming after care

* Nail Clipping if required (not guranteed as some cats do not tolerate this).

The Lion Cut

For a Lion Cut, the trim is shaved very close to the skin on the body, belly and chest, leaving long hair on the legs, around the cat’s head and leaving a “pom” on the tail. Jonny may be able to tailor this look to your preference, as long as high-risk areas are not shaved.

The Teddy Bear Cut

The Teddy Bear or 'Comb' Cut is perfect for long haired cats that require a less severe treatment than my radical service. Teddy bear clips ensure that your cat looks and feels great all year round. The cut is not designed to make your cat 'look like a teddy bear', however it is know as this due to the 'teddy bear appearance' of a finished comb cut.


Both the Lion & Teddy Bear Cuts include:

* Consultation with the groomer, on general coat condition and behaviour

* Brushing out the remaining coat with Conditioning, Instant Detangling Spray or Foam Shampoo (no rinse required).

* Mat removal of remaining coat

* Cleaning the Ears and Eyes with Ear and Eye Wipes

* Cleaning the teeth with Tooth & Gum Wipes

* Wiping the cat’s body with J. P. Mitchell Full Body & Paw Bath Wipes

* For sensitive skin, Medicated Aloe Vera Veterinary Formula, if required at no extra charge

* Advice on cat grooming tools, grooming products and grooming after care

* Nail Clipping if required (not guranteed as some cats do not tolerate this).


Who gets a Lion/Teddy Bear Cut and why?

Lion & Comb Cuts are not fashion statements; the most common reason for this service is matting. If a cat is already matted, the best and most humane option is to shave the cat into a lion cut, then get the cat on a regular grooming schedule to prevent matting. Regular comb cuts can be a good way to prevent a cat from becoming matted, however the best way is to ensure that you brush your cat daily.


Who should NOT get a Lion/Teddy Bear Cut?

Not all cats are candidates for getting shaved. Cats that are highly aggressive, elderly, or in poor health can be at a higher risk for becoming stressed or nicked during shaving. Speak with Jonny to determine the best grooming schedule and services for your cat.

Please note that upon consultation and diagnosis, cats with thick, badly matted coats may be charged extra. Agressive cats may not be groomed.


Why do Cats Need Groomed?

Does your cat have hairballs, mats, dreadlocks, dandruff, fleas, a bad smell, long, sharp claws, dirty rear end, a dirty coat, eye discharge, waxy ears, shedding all over your house?

If you answered YES to any of the above, then a professional cat groomer is just what you need!

Cats mat. It is a fact. Whether long hair or short hair, purebred or domestic, they get matted over time. While regular combing will help to prevent the mats, the best defense is a thorough degreasing bath and blow dry. This is where the professional cat groomer comes in.

Cats are naturally oily. Their skin produces oil that spreads throughout the coat if given enough time. Some cats are greasier than others and some become greasier with time, especially if they have certain health issues.


Cats naturally shed. This is true regardless of coat length. In fact, short hair cats usually shed more than long hair breeds. As the hair sheds, the greasiness of the coat makes it gummy enough to cause some of the shedding hair to stick to the hair that is not shedding. This, in turn, creates a small tangle. Usually these small tangles are imperceptible to the eye and are hidden in the coat, making them easy to miss when petting or combing the cat.


With time, hair continues to shed under and around the tangle. Instead of falling away, it sticks to the existing tangle, making it bigger. At this point, it becomes a mat. Several mats can form at one time, in various places on a cat’s body. Eventually, if left to to themselves, these mats will come together to create one giant mat, or pelt. The pelt also begins to pull closer to the skin at this point. If too much time goes by before it is removed, the pelt will be so close to the skin that sores can develop underneath.


Remember, cats do not groom themselves, they lick themselves. Licking does nothing to remove mats, kill fleas, eliminate dandruff, deodorize, correct bad breath, kill germs, trim sharp nails, or clean up messes! To keep a cat’s coat in good condition we recommend visiting Jonny regularily.
