She was prompt & very gentle with my cat. She brushed her teeth, clipped her nails, washed & sheared her fur just as we had discussedahead of time. She had her own professional equipment which she brought with her as this was a service performed iny home. I would use Cady Falls again for cat grooming needs.

Lori came to my house to groom our Norwegian Forest Cat. She was amazing with him, talking to him the whole time even though he squirmed all over the place. She was very personable and we hit it off immediately. She even showed me how to get out the mats as they come and gave great pointers. She will definitely be my cat groomer from now on!

We took our dog here for day care for the day and she loved it so much she didn't want to leave. This weekend we took her for a two-hour play time followed by grooming. Our dog can be a very shy dog and she always has a great time when she's there

Barbara was very confident, professional and comfortable with our little Maltese. We didn't know how our Juliet would react, but Barbara put us at ease, along with our pet. She did a wonderful job grooming our dog. Our family was more than pleased with her work. I will hire her again.

Dale has been grooming our dogs for more than 10 years. They always look great when she's done with them and they don't seem to have been stressed by the experience. Can't imagine using any other groomer :-)

Crystal was awesome! We were very pleased with the way our dogs were treated and they smelled great! Her pet washing area is in the basement of her house and was small and very clean! The best part was that both our dogs were done in under 2 hours which is a big plus for us vs. having them sit at Petsmart for 3-4 hours at a time for grooming. We would def use Crystal again. Oh and she also puts cute bandanas on!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Do cats have to get groomed?

It’s not crazy to have your cat groomed. Grooming will keep your cat’s fur soft and silky as well as give you early warning about any health concerns. Regular grooming can also help reduce the volume of hair your cat may be shedding and keep your longhair kitty cool if you live in a warm climate. Professionals competently groom your cat and are trained to manage them if they resist being groomed, while you may get scratched doing the same task. The national average price for cat grooming is $50-$70. Pet grooming prices may vary based on the task. For example, a bath and brush for shorthair cats may be $15, $20 for medium-hair cats, and $25 for a longhair. Cat groomers can also keep your cat’s ears cleaned, trim their nails, and provide haircuts if needed. Average prices for haircuts can vary from $30 to $95 or more, depending on whether the cat is shy or aggressive and whether their coat is in good condition, matted, or otherwise difficult to groom.

Where can you get your cat groomed?

Cat grooming keeps your cat’s fur tangle-free and clean. Most businesses that offer dog grooming or general pet grooming also offer cat grooming; some businesses even specialize solely in cat grooming. Look for a professional who has training grooming cats or belongs to a professional association such as the National Cat Groomers Institute, because cat grooming techniques can be different than for dogs. Cat grooming can encompass a wide range of services. In addition to haircutting, hair detangling and hairstyling, cat groomers can trim cat nails, clean out your cat’s ears, give flea baths, demat, trim facial fur, bathe and even blow-dry your cat. Health safety and etiquette requires your cat to be in good health and have all their vaccinations before using grooming services.

How much should cat grooming cost?

Keeping your cat groomed is an important part of maintaining their good health. The national average cost for cat grooming ranges between $50 and $70, with prices varying based on where you live and the services you request. Your cat’s temperament can also affect grooming prices. Scratching and hissing during a groomer visit can raise rates an average of $5-$10, or more, as hazard pay. Larger cats and long-haired cats that take longer to groom will also usually cost more. Here are some examples of cat grooming average costs:

  • Shave down or lion cut: $35-$60. These cuts preserve the hair around the face and tip of the tail but shave down the entire body. The lion cut is often recommended for extremely matted hair is exceedingly matted, for extreme heat, or for cats who are suffering from hairballs.
  • Ear cleaning and nail trim: $30.
  • Nail trim: $10-$15.
  • Bath and nail trim: $45.
  • Bath and sanitary trim: $55. A sanitary trim clips the hair on a cat’s behind to prevent fecal matting in longhair cats or cats that have mobility issues.
  • Bath, blow-dry, brush out, nail trim and ear cleaning: $40.
  • Full haircut, bath, and nail trim: $45-$95, depending on matting.
