- all cats are individual beings and not possessions or property
- as guardians, we have a moral responsibility to care for cats in a manner that ensures their long-term health and well-being in mind, body, and spirit
- in positive grooming experiences and environment, and do not provide services that evoke fear or pain, diminish the dignity, instinctive behaviour, and natural needs of cats
Cats in foster care have a much higher and faster rate of successful adoption if they are clean and happy. Since 2013, Cat’s Pajamas has had a partnership with the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue and contributes monthly free grooming to the OSCATR to help cats that need grooming attention to improve their well-being and look their very best for adoption.
We recycle our dirty cat hair bi-annually by contributing our waste by-product to a global biopharmaceutical company specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies through allergen immunotherapy products and services.
Allergies to cats are the most common type of allergy to dander and represent two thirds of allergies to pets. Contrary to common belief, what triggers an allergy isn’t the hair itself, but a substance found on the cat’s fur. This protein (or allergen) is produced by the skin of felines and is also present in their saliva, urine, tears and dander. This highlights the importance of having your cat regularly bathed and combed.
