    I agree I might let an owner be around but not helping me actually any part of the grooming. Too many odd things could come up. 99% of the time agree I don't want the owner to distract.

And no, I do not have owners hold or assist in my cat salon I find it too much of a liability and I can't communicate with them quickly enough to do what is appropriate for the cat or what I need them to do in such a short time together.
      Great ideas there. Hadn't thought about how others in household can or cannot pickup cat.
