I am hoping he is okay. This particular groomer is primarily dog based (as I assume most pet groomers are,) and while he gets along with dogs just fine, I don't trust that all the dogs in the place get along with cats.
I had to explain to the groomers I did NOT want him pink.
"Okay, then just a tad off?"
"No...a LOT off...but NOT pink."
"Down to the skin?"
"Not down to the skin! Not PINK."
Beowulf was pink the first time I saw him and subsequently brought him home and boy he was silly looking. I can understand the reasons as to why they (PAWS) cut him down to the quick when he was first brought in but I don't see a reason for pinking him ever again.
