Our History

2Konnie Prentice grew up as a small girl in the Burin Peninsula of Newfoundland. She loved all animals but had a special place in her heart for cats and liked nothing more than dressing them up and taking them for a walk in a carriage across the meadow.

Purrfection Cat & Dog Grooming is the culmination of 10 years of Konnie’s experience in the world of pet grooming. It was evident that there were very limited options for cat owners to have their cats cleaned and groomed. Where some services were offered, the results were often less than satisfactory for both the cat and their owner. Konnie was frustrated in observing the poor grooming results for cats when compared to those provided to their canine counterparts.

Purrfection Cat & Dog Grooming has come out of the desire to provide quality grooming care specifically for cats. Konnie attended a seminar by the founder of the National Cat Groomers Institute of America, Danelle Germain, and it was a revelation. There was a better way, a safer way, a more informed way to provide grooming that leaves cats feeling better and looking and smelling great.

Konnie had already been grooming cats for 3 years when she made the commitment with a heady combination of anticipation and nervousness to attend the National Cat Groomers Institute in South Carolina. Konnie is proud to have achieved the internationally recognized certification of a Certified Feline Master Groomer. She is now the first groomer with this certification providing services in the Durham region and the 17th in all of Ontario.

Providing a quality grooming experience for your pet is a way for Konnie to combine a life long love of animals with her skills developed over years of caring for valued pets.
