Meet Your Groomers


LaDean is a graduate of the National Cat Groomers Institute(NCGI), the only feline grooming school of its kind in the world. The NCGI requires its groomers to pass a series of rigorous written and practical exams that specialize in the unique needs of felines, including the America Red Cross Feline first aid/CPR certification, Health and Anatomy, Colors and Genetics, Breeds, Temperament assessments and many other feline-related subjects. In 2016 she attended Ivs San Bernard, earning her certificate in the Science of Skin adding to her knowledge base for keeping your cats skin and coat in the healthiest condition possible. In 2018, LaDean went on to complete her certification with Pet Emergency in feline CPR/First Aid, making her dual certified in the skill, as well as completing her Fear Free certification with Fear Free Pets, becoming the very first Fear Free certified groomer in Hampton Roads.

Tabetha (aka Tabby) grew up with 2 CFMG’s her mother LaDean and Older sister Dezarai, with the enthusiasm of a child raised in an environment so full of cats it was hard for her not to want to follow in their footsteps!  She started grooming the family’s personal cats at the age of 8, by the time she was 13 she was excited to begin working on her CFMG certifications with the NCGI.  In Aug of 2020 at the age of 13 she was certified as the world’s youngest CFMG and has been a valuable asset to Purrocious Styles as one of our CFMG’s.  She has the skill and training to handle almost any cat and does a wonderful job with all of our clients’ feline family members!  She aspires to run her own Purrocious Styles Cat Only Salon and Resort someday and we know she is going to succeed in that goal in the future!
