Introduction: ***NOTE*** I only offer a “nail trim only” within a 15 mile radius of 01752 (Marlborough) unless I’m in your area for other grooming’s. I am only offering baths on a limited basis at this time due to COVID.**** I have 25 years experience as a CATS ONLY Groomer. ***I am a member in good standing with the “National Cat Groomers Institute” or NCGI, the ONLY accredited cats only Grooming school in the world. Please be sure to compare my REVIEWS and PICTURES to others you may be considering…I promise you will see the difference!!! I do not use a noose around your cats neck. Anyone who does should not be grooming cats in my opinion. This would be a groomer who has little to no experience handling cats. You never put a noose around a cats neck!! The greatest part about my business is that your grooming is performed in the comfort of your own home! Be aware that “in-home” Mobile cat grooming is a PREMIUM SPECIALTY service, one that takes a business straight to the customers door. Also, because grooming cats is a very SPECIALIZED SKILL, and a very dangerous one, it follows that it should, and does, command a higher price than what is normally found in the dog grooming market. Mobile grooming eliminates the stress for both the cat and its owner and is therefore priced accordingly. kitty never needs to leave the comfort of their own home and you do not need to drop Kitty off and come back hours later. You get to witness the entire grooming and I’m happy to educate people on how they can keep their kitty in good shape! I work Monday through Sunday and I can start as early as 7 AM in the morning. I do not have “one size fits all” pricing. Each grooming is priced individually based on your kitties needs. I MUST have a conversation with you before I could give an “approximate” quote. Please feel free to call or text me Anytime and text me a picture of your kitty so we can discuss. Thank you so much for looking at my page and considering me! Please be sure to read my numerous five star reviews!!! Lori 🙏***IMPORTANT PLEASE!!!***🙏 One thing I do politely ask… Thumbtack does CHARGE ME to make the connection with you. Please ONLY request me if you are serious about a grooming and not just “looking“ as this gets very costly for me. Even if you choose not to use my services… I would appreciate the opportunity to speak to you… Even if it’s just for you to say thanks but no thanks 🙏 Thank you for understanding!

Cat Grooming

Our cat suffers from CH and isn’t able to groom himself so he had a lot of matted fur. He is a handful to put it simply and she handled him like a pro. We went with the lion cut and couldn’t be more pleased.

Cat Grooming

I wrote a request for Laurie on Saturday, and she came to my house on Sunday. We texted Sunday morning. She told me that it was hard to predict her schedule, because she didn’t know how long the cats before me would take, but that she guessed she could be at my house around 2. Around 1:30, she texted me that she would be at my house around 2:20. She arrived a few minutes before that. As with the first time she groomed my cats, she does a phenomenal job. It is so nice to have someone come to the house, and groom the cats in their own space. I will have her come back again when my cats need grooming.

Cat Grooming

Lori was wonderful with my cat Luna. She took the time to educate me on ways to keep my cat groomed between appointments and gave me some great tips. It was a pleasure working with Lori.

Cat Grooming

We had our chocolate point Himalayan groomed by Lori. She was on time and she texted and called when she was on her way to make sure we were ready. She was great with our cat, fast and efficient, well worth the fair pricing. She really understood what we were looking for and was very easy to talk too and has a great sense of humor. Highly recommend! Looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Cat Grooming

Wouldn't let me pick 5 but I would have also added value in punctuality because Lori absolutely kept me informed when she had a slight delay. My cats look absolutely beautiful and they were happily bathing at her feet when she was done grooming them. Wonderful experience!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    No two cats are the same. Each cat is priced on their individual needs. There is an “average” base price for services but many factors go in to the quote to groom your cat. A conversation MUST be had. Factors like… Age, coat condition, health, size, “Catitude”(😆) Are all factored into the price. Ultimately though… I will charge less than having to take your cat to be groomed by the vet. With a regular grooming schedule… The cost typically will always be less. On rare occasions...I arrive to find kitty is unable to be groomed (usually due to aggression). I ask only for a $20 travel/gas/and time fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    A conversation MUST be had to determine the needs of your kitty. All factors are taken into consideration. Typically my first grooming is a "soup to nuts" all-around grooming. The idea is to wipe the slate clean and get the cat in perfect condition. Typically this is the most expensive grooming a customer might experience with me. Going forward… If they keep up on their kitties grooming on a regular or semi regular basis… the price typically will be less… Obviously because there will be less work. On occasion… For whatever reason… Kitty may be sensitive to the process of being groomed and sometimes I find it best to stop at a certain point… I will only charge for what work I have done… And come back another time. I always have the kitties best interests at heart❤️ There has been occasions where I have started a grooming and decided part way through that it would be best to stop for kitty’s safety and that kitty should be seen by the vet as I had strong concerns for their health and didn't feel it would be appropriate for me to continue. Here is an excerpt from a great article I read and it describes what I do as well!! “Q How do you keep cats calm during the grooming process? A This is not an easy question to answer! If there was one magic technique or hold, then everyone would be successful at cat grooming. There is so much to take into consideration when working with each cat. I ask a lot of questions about their background, environment at home, age, health status, breed and even the color of their coat. I take all of this information—a bit like being a detective—and use it to help me predict how the cat will react to each stage of the groom. Then during the appointment, I have to interpret their behavior and adapt along the way. Knowing what technique, tool or product to use depends on a lot of factors; that is why education and training are so important in this field. Cats can become stressed very easily and aren’t easily talked down once that happens. So, it is my job to adjust each groom to prevent any escalating behaviors. This also affects the recommendations I make for grooming schedules; not every service fits every cat.”

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 24 years actual on-the-job experience. Currently I am studying to receive my certificate as a CFMG (Certified Feline Master Groomer) from the National Cat Groomers Association. I have shown my own cats in competition in CFA and CFF. Not only the Pedegree Persians… But also 2 domestic shorthair that I adopted from the shelter. Requirements were for them to look their very best and be in top condition to win. I received many accolades and won many ribbons. Proper grooming is key🔑 I never have nor do I ever do dogs. My experience over the past 20 years is exclusively with cats. I have groomed many different breeds, coat conditions and yes ..."Catittudes"...LOL
