Meet The Team

Kevin Beck // Certified Feline Creative Groomer (CFCG),

Certified Feline Master Groomer (CFMG)

Kevin has always had a love of cats. However allergies had made it impossible to own one. Yet his love of cats and fascination with them never left. As a very special birthday gift he received a Cornish Rex. A breed of cat that Kevin had always wanted despite his allergies. Kevin soon discovered that he had very little reaction to his new kitten, and later found his allergies to cats had disappeared altogether.

Kevin has been a hairstylist now for over 18 years and has a keen eye for art and creativity. Yet he felt there was something missing, he could do more. When Stephen of Bark Avenue suggested that he had heard of a Cat Grooming School in South Carolina and asked if he would attend, Kevin instantly agreed to go. Something just ‘clicked’ and he knew this is what he had to do. What better way to do something new and work with the cats he loved?

Kevin studied very hard and put everything into the demanding training at the NCGIA, and in the end achieved his certification as a Certified Feline Master Groomer and is now a member of the National Cat Groomers Institute of America. Kevin is now also the Artistic Director for the NCGIA’s Purrfect Pointers Magazine. The industries only magazine for Cat Groomers. 

Kevin has a desire to learn and to continuously train and better himself and his skills.

Kevin’s passion for cats and their proper care is evident in the love, attention to detail and skill he dedicates to every groom.

Joel Gastmeier

Joel loves nature and animals and when offered a job where he would work with cats all day he couldn’t refuse. Since starting at Cat and the Fiddle he has found the work very satisfying, he loves helping the cats live better lives with fresh clean coats and skin free of tangles and mats. Joel’s favourite part of the job is seeing the smile on the owners face when they see and smell their freshly groomed cats. Even though he is the newest member of the team he is extremely dedicated to ensure your cat is taken care of, and at the most professional level. He looks forward to meeting new clients and their cats.

Laurie

Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job of grooming our Ceeatee. You were wonderful and patient with her, so much so, that apparently she fell asleep while being dried. Now that’s a relaxed cat !! Thanks again and much success for the future.
