Don’t take your cat to a salon where untrained people work. Your cat will feel the heat.

Even if the salon groomer knows what they’re doing, the bather might be clueless. Want to see how hot a cage can get after just a few minutes of drying the wrong way?  How’d you like to sit in a 100 degree metal cage with a wind tunnel of hot air blowing at you and loud noise to complete the picture of hell? Add in the sound of dogs barking and you’ve got a nightmare scenario.

A groomer named Debi Hilley did a test to see how hot cages get when a dryer is directed at them.

Look at her video to see the frightening results.

I hand dry, which means I don’t put the cat in a cage.

To clarify, I’m not saying all or even many salon groomers do what the video shows. Knowledgable groomers would never cage dry that way.
