1. RE: PETCO STATE COLLEGE PA grooming, on 09-03-2011 11:45
I took my inherited cat there this am for grooming. 8 AM apt, was not let in until 8:03, then waited for computer to warm up and another person to check in, by then 8:10 a.m., before the CAT WAS REFUSED due to age. As I explained, the age on the rabies certificate was my husband's GUESS as we inherited the cat when my aunt in CA died. She got the cat in 2004. They don't want to groom any cat over 9 years old. I told the appointment taker when I called that we did not really know the age of the cat. The cat was used to being groomed in CA but this was first trip here to groomer. We had the rabies tag but they wanted the certificate, which said 11(a guess that my husband told the vet). We could not contact the vet as they were not yet open. I was willing to sign a waiver or a statement that the age of the cat was not known but that I agreed to the risks of grooming. This was a big waste of time. If one has the required vaccinations, they should not discriminate if the owner is willing to bring the animal in for grooming and sign a release.
