PRLog - Aug. 2, 2011 - HARLINGEN, Texas -- Harlingen, Texas – The International Cat Association (TICA), the world’s largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats, announced its partnership with The Professional Cat Groomers Association of America (PCGAA) which offers cat grooming educational courses to professionals who want to increase the cat segment of their business.
Professional cat groomers understand cat care
PCGAA has students and members around the world, and offers continued education and advanced certification courses for professional groomers.
“We’re thrilled to partner with PCGAA as they strive to give care through proper grooming of cats no matter their breeding, age or coat length,” said Vickie Fisher, President of TICA. “Our partnership allows us to reach out to even more cat owners worldwide, and help them understand the importance of grooming their cats properly to ensure a happy and healthy life.”
“PCGAA chose to partner with TICA because of their focus on educating communities and cat owners on the care and welfare of cats, pedigreed or not,” said Kimberly Raisanen, President and Founder of PCGAA. “So many cat owners aren’t aware of the certified cat groomers in their area, who are trained to work with cats and understand the difference in handling and grooming a cat versus a dog which ensures a more pleasurable experience for their cats.”
