About Us:
Professional Life

Pauline set up her business, Awesome Paws Pet Care, to allow her to follow her dream and return to working with animals - having worked as a Kennel Maid for retired greyhounds  in Surrey back in her teens! Having owned or worked with a number of animals over the years - including cats, dogs and other domestic pets, Pauline understands how valued pets  are being part of the family.  

Giving up a career working for medical charities and health organisations in Central London, this allowed Pauline to be available the hours and days when clients needed the services of a pet care specialist and to undertake further training where required.  

A true animal lover, Pauline knew from personal experience that cats sometimes require additional help when it came to grooming.  Having two long haired cats of her own, Pauline recognised the importance of keeping her cats hair healthy and knot free.    

Through extensive training at the Cat Grooming School in London UK, Pauline attained  herMaster Cat Groomer Certification.  Ongoing Professional Training includes working towards Certified Feline Master Groomer (CFMG) status with the National Cat Groomers Institute.  

Pauline is happy to discuss your cat grooming requirements by telephone 07534 441810.  For more about cat grooming, please see the Cat Grooming page.
