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.

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.

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.

Lori responded to my concerns and adjusted the grooming plan based on what felt best for our 16 year old cat, who has never been groomed before. Very pleased with her expertise and professionalism. My cat could never have handled the stress of a grooming facility. So glad I found her. Thank you.

The groomers did a nice job and they really seemed to care about the cat's well being. I liked how they would talk to the cat to calm him down during the more stressful parts of grooming.

Lori came to my home to groom my Maine Coon cat. She was gentle and kind and made it a good experience for him.

Our long hair cat was largely covered with mats and pelts. She was in very bad shape. Lori's a real Pro. She was totally efficient and effective, working quickly on an "older" cat who was not happy being shaved down to a "lion cut". But within minutes following, she was looking great and feeling much happier! She is noticeably more calm and affectionate ever since. We highly recommend Badkitty Cat Grooming. D & S Wilkins

We are new cat owners and still learning. I found Lori on Thumbtack and she was able to come the next day! She’s was so good with Simba and could not believe the amount of hair that was brushed out! He looks beautiful. She also educated us On different aspects of caring and grooming Simba. Can’t wait to have Lori back again!

Lori was tasked with removing candle wax from my Maine Coons behind. Lori was responsive to my message and was eager to assist with my dilemma. Lori was gentle and nurturing with my aggressive cat and handled with care. He was showed no aggression after having been shaved, groomed and nails trimmed. She also trimmed my Siamese cats nails (btw he hates getting his nails trimmed) with ease. I am extremely grateful to have found someone with the knowledge and understanding that Lori has. I will definitely recommend to family and friends!

I think Lori did a great job! She came to the apartment knew exactly how to hold my big boy (Maine coon) and how to have me help her hold him. I learned a lot, this is so different than dog grooming, cats aren’t patient like dogs, she used her skill and expertise to get the belly and sanitation trim done very efficiently. Yoda says thank you he feels so much better. She is worth every penny!
