*** SUMMER CLOSURE 2020 ***
Cat Pretty is closed for summer vacation until 12 September.
Welcome on the website of Cat Pretty Cat Grooming Services!
My name is Saskia Heijboer and I’m a certificated pet groomer specialized in grooming cats. I completed my training at the Martin Gaus Academie in the spring of 2012, where I followed their professional Cat Grooming training program for grooming cats without sedation. Earlier my grooming salon “Cat Pretty” already had a flying start. At that time I was one of the first cat grooming specialists in Amsterdam and the need for cat groomers was hight.
I am located in Amsterdam Zuidoost and I can help you keeping your cat healthy, happy and (if not too many mats …) looking good. I can take away painful mats and felted fur, in most cases by using a clipping machine. Mat prevention is also a big part of my work; brushing out old hair or remove part of the underwool from very dense coats. The grooming is done without sedation. Only when cats experience extreme stress it’s better to have them groomed at the vet under sedation.
Please note that it is not my policy to shave cats only because they are shedding. The cat’s fur is part of the body and has important functions. I only shave cats in case of mats (removal or prevention) or other (medical) conditions that will improve the well being of the cat by shaving.
Do you have a fluffy longhaired cat with mats and tangles? Or “just an ordinary” breedless shorthair cat with a bad coat caused by illness, obesity or old age? Feel free to contact me for questions or to make an appointment.
I groom cats on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon, Friday afternoon and on Saturday mornings, next to my regular office job.
In case of cancellation: please let me know a.s.a.p. (so that I can try to help another cat instead) but 24 hours in advance at the latest. Thank you!
You can send an email to email@example.com or use the contact-form. Phone number is 06 – 42368073, but please note that my phone often is in silent mode during grooming. Please leave a voice or text message or contact me via WhatsApp.
My grooming salon in Amsterdam Zuidoost is located at Montfoorthof 133 (please note: salon visits by appointment only). Free parking, near A2, A9, A10 and Reigersbos station. PIN-payments possible.
Grooming at home not possible at the moment because of COVID-19.
Within the service area I can also groom the cat(s) at your house. (25 cent allowance per km from postal code 1106 JV, two way + parking in case of paid parking)
Because of the many grooming requests I can only take in new clients within my service area.
Cats from outside these service area are welcome in my grooming salon (see also the ♦Tips below for other exclusive cat groomers (no dogs) in / around Amsterdam!).
Not in your area? Maybe one of my colleagues is:
♦ Tip for cat owners in AMSTERDAM ZUID area (and in/around HEM): there is a certified cat groomer in the Heemstedestraat: https://thecatbarber.nl/cat-grooming-salon-amsterdam/ She also works in HEM. (Her name is also Saskia so make sure you go to the right salon; she (Cat Barber) in ZUID, and myself (Cat Pretty) in Zuidoost).
You can also look for the websites of cat groomers elsewhere in The Netherlands and Belgium here, or contact your vet.
On this website I like to give you more information about my cat grooming salon and about feline coat care in general.
