QUINTA FISCHER – Pet Spa Manager

Quinta manages the spa every weekday and feels that she definitely gets the best of both worlds. She loves working with animals and has a passion for radio. She graduated top of her class in her diploma for TV and Radio Presenting. She used to work for a community radio station for over 2 years and is constantly striving towards charming us over the commercial radio airwaves one day. Quinta is the very proud owner of Onyx, a gorgeous black pug, Hunta, a mischievous Boston Terrier and ginger rescue kittens Turbo and Bullet.


Gloria is a highly skilled groomer, with a special talent for turning out beautifully styled poodles. Her calm authority relaxes every pet she handles and they leave the Spa looking like a million dollars.

NELSON DUBE – Driver and Groomer

Before joining Twisted Whiskers, Nelson worked as an assistant to a specialist veterinarian for 5 years. He brings this superb training to his job and this, together with his wonderful enthusiasm and infectious smile, is a great asset to the Spa. He is not just a wonderful chauffeur for our furry clients but a very competent groomer too.

agnes – Groomer

Agnes joined Twisted Whiskers recently and has enhanced our team with her superb poodle styling skills, not to mention her other breed cuts.

MDU MALAZA – Groomer

Mdu loves working at Twisted Whiskers because it gives him great joy knowing that the animals he deals with everyday get to feel good and made to look fancy. In a short time, Mdu has become a talented junior groomer and loves the daily interaction with pets, as well as getting to know their personalities. In his spare time, he also assists at a cat welfare organisation.


Rebecca’s calm and gentle nature gives even a nervous dog or cat confidence to allow themselves to be groomed. She loves animals because they are always happy and never complain.

patrick solane – Junior Groomer

Patrick washes and dries our furry clients and readies them for the groomers to style. He is currently in training to be able to perform breed cuts in the near future.
