Kimberly Lawson is motivated by a higher purpose when she bathes, de-sheds and trims the cats carried through her door. Cat grooming isn’t just about cleaning for Lawson. It’s about relationships.
“The difference of living with a groomed cat (is) they smell good, they’re fun, they’re clean,” she said.
Lawson opened The French Cat, a cat grooming and boarding business, at 544 E. Eighth St. in Traverse City in April. She became a Certified Feline Master Cat Groomer in February after completing the National Cat Groomers Institute of America’s two-week course in Greenbo, S.C. She is certified by the American Red Cross to perform cat CPR. She’s determined to boost the bonds between pet owners and their feline friends. Click here for the rest of the story.
