On Thursday, November 1st we received a phone call in which we were in disbelief.
It was Jonathan Groom, the location manager for Saturday Night Live. He was interested in using Furry Pawz & Clawz Pet Salon for a comedy skit with Leslie Jones, a comedian on SNL.
At first, we thought it was a prank but twenty minutes later Mr. Groom and his crew pulled up in a black van and about ten people got out to see our shop and discuss ideas for the comedy skit. At that moment we knew it was legit. Of course, we were super excited and very honored to be chosen.
The crew started to set up on Friday, November 2nd and they transformed our shop into a cat paradise. The cutest kittens were brought in, a bunch of scratching post, fun kitty toys, fluffy beds, pet carriers, and awesome decals were used to spice up the place. They did an amazing job and not only were they very professional they were all so pleasant to work with. The staff was super respectful of our space and very friendly. This made the whole experience that much more enjoyable.
Please make sure to check out the SNL skit with a quick scene of our shop.
