The Salon
The Whole Kitten Capoodle was founded by Erin Roberts & Lauren Mecadon in 2014, and opened October 2014. Erin and Lauren are co-owners and managers of the business. We then opened our second location in Scotts Valley in October of 2022.

We are dedicated to providing quality grooming services to the Santa Cruz County area. Caring for pets in a safe environment and every animal is treated with love, patience, and respect. Our top priority is the pets physical & emotional wellbeing. We are a (mostly) cage-free salon, and we separate pets as needed (cats are ofcourse the exception and are always caged for safety).
