A Grooming and Boarding Salon Exclusively for Felines | 208.957.2229

Who I Am and What I Do

My name is Sharon Halpern. From a very young age I experienced that being in the company of animals gave me solace, comfort and a spiritual grounding. Throughout my life I have groomed and shown Arabian horses, dogs and cats.

In the past years, I have come to focus on the unique needs of Felines. I pursued a Certificate of Achievement as an Advanced Professional Pet Stylist from the American Grooming Academy in Temecula, California, and a Completion of the Course from the American Academy of Cat Grooming in Edmonds, Washington. I am a Certified Master Cat Groomer (CMCG) and member of the Professional Cat Groomers Association of America (PCGAA). In a quest to learn more, I earned the title of Certified Feline Master Groomer (CFMG) and am a member of the National Cat Groomers Institute (NCGI).

I feel very blessed to pursue my passion and work alongside my daughter, Vanessa, who shares the skills of an excellent groomer. Together, we worked the Cat Exclusive Mobile Grooming side of Downtown Tabby Inc. in the Coachella Valley of California. In addition, we volunteered our grooming services at shelters and the Humane Society.

“The well-being of the majestic feline should be amplified. He is a     valuable friend and gifted spiritual companion”Sharon Halpern
Our Philosophy

Downtown Tabby Inc. is honored to be of service to one of the most beautiful and mysterious creatures on earth, the Cat. We strive to build a successful Feline exclusive grooming business by becoming experts in cat behavior, temperaments, breeds, coat types and in detecting health issues which may require veterinary care.

In understanding the nature of cats, we focus all our attention on grooming only one cat in our salon at a time. This promotes a calming environment and a quiet awareness. As a Master Cat Groomer certified with two National Organizations, I understand the effects of stress on a Feline, especially during the grooming process. Therefore, promoting peace and a reduction of noise and movement invites a tranquil quality, which is the authentic power and very essence of a Cat.

By being a resource to you and providing a solution to your pet’s grooming issues, we seek to improve the quality of feline lives and raise awareness as to the unique needs of these magnificent beings. We cater to the geriatric and hypersensitive individuals including the special needs of kittens.
With compassion, patience and skill we dedicate ourselves to the grooming needs and well-being of your cat.
