Fur flies over women''s pet-grooming business

A longtime Murrysville pet groomer has filed suit against three former employees alleging they confiscated her client list and removed equipment to start their own business in the same municipality.

According to papers filed in the Westmoreland County Court of Common Pleas, Ellen Sweet, owner of Clippingdales Elite Pet Styling and Products, of 3700 William Penn Highway, claims former employees Cecile Grosgean, Hope Ann Love and Jody Lynn Kuhns used her client list and equipment to open Precious Pawz.

The business was created Feb. 6, according to the Pennsylvania Department of State, which is a month before the three allegedly quit working for Sweet.

Sweet contends that on or around March 7, the three took her "master cards," which were accrued over several years and contained the names, addresses, phone numbers and other important information relative to each customer and their pet. Clipper blades, scissors and clippers also were missing, she said.
