For many people, going to the salon is about more than grooming; it’s about getting pampered, relaxing, and maybe even socializing with the stylists and other patrons.

But what could make the whole experience even better? The company of a cat, of course!

The Barbar Hair Salon in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia has a very hardworking employee who’s the purrfect addition to salon staff. Rescue cat Betty Boo is a four-legged socialite who rules the roost at her mom’s salon.

“King of the Castle 👑” reads this caption on Instagram.

Customers who come in for a cut or color get so much more when Betty Boo comes over for a cuddle on their lap. It’s almost like the 7-year-old sweetheart, who was abandoned as a kitten, has dedicated her life to soaking up all the love she can get!

“Here till 5 guys. 😽”

“I’m good at what I do.”

“Did you just say I had to move?!”

“Don’t mind me.”

“That’s the spot right there. 😻”

“What do you mean your haircut is finished?! Don’t you dare get up 😿!”
