Setting a Standard

Prior to the formation of the National Cat Groomers Institute in 2007, no written standards or certification process existed for cat grooming. Now, however, standards for feline grooming styles and quality exist worldwide and are provided by Certified Feline Master Groomers that possess unsurpassed knowledge and skills pertaining to breeds, coats types, temperaments, health issues, and grooming needs for all types of domesticated cats, even those with special needs. The National Cat Groomers Institute has truly filled the gap when it comes to feline grooming by creating a force of elite cat grooming professionals around the globe.
