My daughter lily and I are very sad to hear of Howard's passing. We will always remember him. My almost four year old daughter asked for him before my cat Natacia passed about two months ago at age 19. Natacia could not continue without Howard's care. He was very special to all of us.

Dear Karen,
I am so sad to hear of Howard's passing and my sincere thoughts are with you.

I had the pleasure of knowing your wonderful husband for 20 years and he was more than just a Cat Groomer he was a dear, dear friend who will be missed.

The maestro of cat grooming. So generous with his time, advice, and much more. I thought Howard knew more about kitties than many vets. He made the world better and many kitties happy. I owe a lot to Howard, an original as a cat groomer, who asked for nothing in return from me. He was special, and one of a kind.

I am so sorry for your loss, Karen. Howard was a special soul, not only did animals love and perceive his warmth, but every human he came into contact with did as well. He was such an eloquent man with lots of knowledge, and he was funny and charming. He would talk about you with such admiration and love, I felt like I knew you. The world, but especially his clients, lost a true angel. Sending lots of love + strength to you.

Howard was not just the best at grooming my cats, he was passionate about the overall condition and care of animals. I learned so much from him. His greatest pleasure and pride, though, was his marriage to Karen. He'll be sorely missed by many. An irreplaceable man.

Dear Karen,
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Howard is missed by so many. He was kind & gentle & took such wonderful care of my "babies". Am sure that Mandy has reached the age of 17 because of his care.
Kindest regards and condolences,
