Grooming Station is the primary structure necessary to create a Stable, the room helpful for maintaining and breeding critters in your colony; it can only be used by a duplicant with the Critter Ranching skill. Grooming is the means for taming most wild critters: grooming a wild critter two days in a row will tame it, after which it will stay tamed. Grooming also keeps tamed critters happy so that they will continue laying eggs.
An unattended, tame Critter will receive the Glum debuff, which reduces metabolism by 80%, and becomes unhappy which reduces reproduction rate.
