All of us at City Kitty want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We have so enjoyed seeing all of you this past year, old clients, new clients, and old clients that have a new cat added to their family. Some of you had cats with us for years that have transitioned on, but not in spirit. I sometimes forget people's names and sometimes their cat’s names but I always remember their little faces. I saw an old client at Costco tonight. As soon as I saw her I saw her cat. Her sweet Sophie has been gone for several years but I saw her face. They leave a lasting impression on us at the salon. They are endearing creatures with such a spirit!
When I first started the business in 2000, my goals were so much more than just grooming. I wanted to see every aspect of your cat’s life the best it could be. It’s why we love to talk to you about behavior, diet and everything CAT! I think it is what makes us different at City Kitty. We go home still thinking about your cats. And wow, we have some absolutely endearing ones that come in. But even the stinkers we love. They have a lot of opinions! John always tells them to go talk to HR about it! We have a lot of fun on our job and a lot of laughter.
This season, for some of us, also has a sadness to it for those we have lost. We wish they were still here with us. It’s bittersweet. I think if we can focus on what they brought into our lives and how lucky we were to have been loved by them it can help. This includes the pets we have lost as well. I hope that this year brings you and your loved ones closer. Once they are gone, all the minor irritations or arguments we had in the past seem so trivial. There is nothing more important than having family. Let them know how much they mean to you this Christmas season and start the new year with a spring in your step and love in your heart!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
