DUE TO THE THINNESS OF A CATS’ SKIN, THERE IS ALWAYS A CHANCE OF INJURY FROM ANY TOOL USED DURING GROOMING, AND THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT GROOMING MAY EXPOSE A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION PREVIOUSLY NOT KNOWN ABOUT, OR AGGRAVATE A CURRENT ONE.

TRENT VIEW CAT GROOMER LTD (TVCG) CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURY AS A RESULT OF A PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITION THEY ARE UNAWARE OF. THIS DOCUMENT GIVES TVCG PERMISSION TO SEEK IMMEDIATE VETERINARY ASSISTANCE FOR YOUR CAT SHOULD IT BE REQUIRED. THIS MAY BE TO YOUR USUAL VET, OR WHOMEVER IS NEAREST IN AN EMERGENCY. IT IS AGREED UPON SIGNING THIS DOCUMENT, THAT ANY EXPENSES ARISING FROM VETERINARY CARE FOR YOUR CAT IS COVERED BY YOU (THE OWNER) UNLESS TVCG OFFER TO COVER THE COST. TVCG CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR THE DEMISE OF ANY CAT DURING GROOMING DUE TO A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION, NATURAL CAUSE OR DISASTER, OR ANY DAMAGE THE CAT CAUSES TO ITSELF DURING THE GROOMING PROCESS.

SHOULD YOUR CAT REQUIRE MAT REMOVAL, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE THAT CLIPPERS ARE A BLADED TOOL AND HAVE TO ON OCCASION GO VERY CLOSE TO THE SKIN IN ORDER TO REMOVE THE MAT. IT IS A MATTER OF MILLIMETRES AND YOUR GROOMER HAS TO SHAVE INCREDIBLY CAREFULLY. DUE TO THE FACT THAT TVCG IS A MORE HOLISTIC GROOMER THIS CAN OFTEN TAKE A WHILE, AND AS WITH ANY GROOMING WORK THERE IS THE CHANCE OF NICKS TO THE CAT’S SKIN: IRRESPECTIVE OF THE AMOUNT OF CARE TAKEN BECAUSE CATS DO NOT SIT STILL TO BE GROOMED. HIDDEN MOLES, WARTS, FOLDS OF SKIN AND LUMPS CAN ALL CONTRIBUTE TO ACCIDENTAL ‘NICKS’ AND TVCG CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE JOB AT HAND.
AFTER-EFFECTS OF MAT REMOVAL INCLUDE ITCHINESS, AND POSSIBLE TEMPORARY BEHAVIOURAL CHANGES. YOUR CAT WILL GENERALLY FEEL BETTER AFTER THE REMOVAL AND WILL BEGIN TO GROOM ONCE MORE. BECAUSE OF THIS, THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT YOUR CAT MAY ACTUALLY OVER-GROOM, AND WHEN THIS HAPPENS TO SHAVED SKIN, THE ROUGHNESS OF THEIR TONGUE ACTS LIKE AN ABRASIVE AGAINST THE SOFT, NEWLY EXPOSED SKIN. IT IS WISE TO JUST WATCH YOUR CAT FOR A DAY OR SO TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE NOT OVER-GROOMING – SHOULD THEY DO THIS AND CAUSE INJURY, TVCG CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE AND IT IS THE OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE THE CAT TO A VET SHOULD THIS BE REQUIRED. IF YOUR CAT HAS HAD A FULL CLIP EITHER FOR THE FIRST TIME, OR BECAUSE OF THE NEED FOR MAT REMOVAL, IT IS HANDY TO HAVE A SMALL JUMPER OR JACKET FOR THE CAT FOR THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS (UNLESS THE WEATHER OR HOUSE THE CAT IS IN IS VERY WARM). TVCG CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY HEALTH PROBLEMS DUE TO TEMPERATURE CHANGE AFTER A FULL OR PARTIAL CLIP.

BY SIGNING THIS CONTRACT, YOU AGREE TO HOLD TRENT VIEW CAT GROOMER LTD., IT’S OWNERS, OPERATORS, EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS HARMLESS FROM ANY DAMAGE, LOSS OR CLAIM ARISING FROM ANY CONDITION RESULTING TO THE UNDERSIGNED CAT, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN TO TRENT VIEW CAT GROOMER LTD. IT IS ALSO FURTHER UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED THAT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE, AND WILL OVERWRITE ALL AND ANY PRIOR SIGNED CONTRACTS OR RELEASES. THIS APPLIES TO ANY AND ALL CATS GROOMED BY TRENT VIEW CAT GROOMER. NO SHOWS, AND LAST-MINUTE CANCELLATIONS MAY INVOKE A £35 CANCELLATION FEE. WE UNDERSTAND THERE MAY BE EMERGENCY SITUATIONS, AND WILL ALWAYS WORK WITH YOU TO RESCHEDULE; BUT THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE TWICE BEFORE THE FEE BECOMES APPLICABLE. I AM AN APPOINTMENT ONLY BUSINESS WHO IS TOTALLY RELIANT UPON OUR AGREEMENT, SO IF I HAD KNOWN IN GOOD TIME ANOTHER CLIENT MAY WELL HAVE HAD THE APPOINTMENT. TRENT VIEW CAT GROOMER LTD REQUIRES 72 HOURS CANCELLATION NOTICE FOR FEE-FREE CANCELLATION.
