Our Team

The Nekomori Cat Salon was founded with the mission of nurturing aspiring cat groomers who not only possess a strong foundation in technical skills and theoretical knowledge in their craft, but also individuals who are kind and passionate about cat care.

Each member of our grooming team is a seasoned cat caregiver or owner who has experience in cat handling, feline body language and holistic care. There’s no better place to groom your cat.

Nicole

Cat Grooming Artisan

Nicole has always followed the conventional path of getting a degree in marketing, working a 9-5 job as a marketer. She decided to take a leap of faith and chase after her childhood dreams of working with animals, and thus took up grooming! From dogs, cats, to even small animals like guinea pigs, Nicole grooms each animal with care and precision.

She is the proud owner of 15 cats and 4 dogs in Bangkok. In Singapore she holds her toy poodle; Inky, closest to her heart.

Shermaine

Cat Grooming Artisan

Shermaine spent 5 years in the sky as an air stewardess when she decided to leave the industry for greener pastures. Thinking of what she could do next, she decided to pursue her passion and become a pet groomer as she had always wanted to work with animals. 

Although Shermaine is not a cat owner herself, she is mom to a chonky Shih Tzu, and more than makes up for it by clocking her fair share of kitty cuddles at work everyday.

Jing Yu

Cat Grooming Artisan

After 3 years in the animation industry, Jingyu decided to pursue her passion in working with feline friends. Through months of hard work, she picked up professional skills to help every feline client feel and look their best.

As a devoted cat owner, Jingyu always cherishes her time at Nekomori – simply being able to cuddle and ‘sayang’ every cat that comes into her arms gives her enough satisfaction to keep this ailurophile going!

Micaela

Grooming Assistant

Micaela has led a corporate life as a marketer for three years when she realised that working with animals was her forte. After sending her own cats to Nekomori, she wondered how fulfilling it would be to help cats look and feel their best everyday. 

After a long day of being surrounded by cats at work, she returns home to attend to the becks and calls of her own three cats at home (i.e. there is no escape).
