Animal devotee Claudia Cannon owns Furry Friends Dog and Cat Grooming, a neighborhood beauty shop for shaggy creatures, particularly dogs and cats. Cannon is something of a cat whisperer inside the clean space, as even the feistiest felines seem to fall under her spell as she grooms their coats. Services run the gamut from flea baths, nail trimming and deshedding treatments to aromatic baths and tick removal. All grooming products are natural and devoid of harsh chemicals, so there’s no worry about the health of a loved family pet at Furry Friends. And for those unfortunate run-ins with neighborhood skunks, Cannon offers a surprisingly effective odor-removing remedy. Best of all, Cannon also runs a pet sitting business and offers cat boarding, which is surprisingly rare. Prices are reasonable at Furry Friends, so it’s possible to pamper your pet without spending too pretty a penny.
