Introduction: 28 years SPECIALIST, experienced with CATS ONLY- (I do NOT groom dogs). If you read somebody’s reviews and it shows “dog,dog,dog,dog,dog…cat”- this would be a dog groomer. The difference between dog groomers & myself is… The ones who SAY they “DO” cats… versus someone/me who says… “I AM a cat groomer“…That is all😊 ***NOTE*** PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE/USE THE “I’m Flexible” choice, when requesting me, or I may not be able to respond. I only respond to requests that are specific to what you’re looking for. Thumbtack is aware that this is a mistake on THEIR part for THEM to put this in as a choice and unfortunately refuses to remove that button. I MUST know which choice you’re looking for when requesting me “I’m flexible” is NOT a choice. Thank you for understanding as this is a mistake on Thumbtack part…not mine. **I am completely booked for baths at this time.** Possibly only offering them on an EMERGENCY basis and at a premium (unless I feel it is medically necessary) .**** Nail trims are “included” with larger jobs but I only offer a “NTO” (nail trim only) in a limited area. Kitty MUST BE IN A CARRIER 15 mins prior to my arrival. “SOME” exceptions or other alternatives can be made, but only after we have a conversation about it!! **A $50 fee will be charged if Kitty is running loose upon my arrival… And your appointment will be canceled as I cannot work on a kitty that is chased around the house. Thank you for understanding🙏 Hello!! ***I am the ONLY cats only groomer, with 28 years experience as a CATS ONLY Groomer, in a 50 mile radius of the Boston area. ***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!! Any who do…would be a groomer who has little to NO EXPERIENCE handling cats. I also do NOT use “heavy perfumes” or “dry shampoo’s”. These are for DOGS ONLY and should NEVER be used on a cat. Perfumes and dry shampoos are made of chemicals and are for dogs and can be toxic for cats as cats lick it off. Anyone who uses either…should NOT be grooming cats in my opinion. Also… I love to have you in the room during the process!!! This gives me the opportunity to show you how to groom your cat properly and explain everything that is going on. You get to witness the entire grooming and I’m happy to educate people on how they can keep their kitty in good shape! If you were told by other groomers that it’s not good to have you in the room during the grooming… This is absolutely UNTRUTHFUL!!! It’s true with dogs but not with cats!! I find the cats do better with the owner in the room😇 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.” Credit-Lynn Pallilo NCGI (Example-If a hairdresser were to come to your home to do your hair in your kitchen… Or a chef came to your home to cook you a meal vs going to the restaurant… it’s fair to say that such a convenience would cost more). 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. I’m available Friday Saturday Sunday Monday, (I’m off Tuesday Wednesday Thursday). I can start as early as 7 AM in the morning. **PLEASE NOTE**!!! I must insist that the day you accept an appointment… YOU ARE FLEXIBLE!! Unless your kitty is being given an anti-anxiety medication… I do not guarantee times. It could happen that I am running 1-2 hours earlier or I could be running 1 hour later… due to possible cancellations or jobs prior to yours that turned out to be more difficult than expected. I cannot predict the unpredictable. I do not have “one size fits all” pricing. Each grooming is priced individually and tailored based on your kitties needs. I MUST have a conversation with you before I could give an “approximate” quote. Please text me a picture of your kitty. I kindly request at least 24 hours notice for any cancellations. Any cancellations “less than” 24 hours may be subject to a $25 cancellation fee as it does not give me enough time to fill the spot now left empty. Thank you for understanding. Thank you so much for looking at my page and considering me! Please be sure to read my numerous five star reviews!!! Lori 8-1-23 Due to gas prices increasing yet again averaging $4.00per/gl … I’ve had to re-in-state the $10 per appointment gas charge across-the-board. Regardless of what procedure you’re having done… There will be an additional $10 gas charge.

A huge shout out to my girl Lori. She was punctual, professional, knowledgeable and handled my somewhat difficult cat with ease and kindness. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to have a cat groomed. 5 stars!!

If i could give Lori 12 stars, i would. I have the cutest cat in the world, but absolutely no one has been able to groom him. He has extremely long hair and used to get pretty matted. He has a mind of his own, and does not like to be groomed AT ALL. He won’t even let me trim his nails! Lori is the perfect person for this job and i will never go to anyone else . If you are a nervous owner when it comes to grooming and you’re worried that your cat is in distress, Lori has the perfect energy for you. She is so so so knowledgeable on cats it’s beyond impressive . Hire her and make sure you LISTEN to her. She was able to give my Messi the perfect Lions cut and she did it with the most insane professionalism i have ever experienced . I cannot wait to have her back to groom Messi the next time he needs a cut . Thank you again Lori , both Messi and i couldn’t be happier .

Lori was absolutely amazing!!!! She was very responsive and was informative on proper grooming and showed me all the proper techniques and tools to use for my Maine Coons to give them a better grooming experience for them and myself to help maintain their beautiful coats. Even though she only needed to groom one of them. The other was absolutely intrigued by her and was right there watching his sister get groomed. And they were thrilled with the treats she gave them after she was done. Having her come to your home and groom is so much better on the cat and less stressful for them. I highly recommend her and will definitely have her back. Thank you Lori for all that you do!!!

My Maine Coon had a pretty badly matted undercarriage (belly/pits/etc) and I knew I wouldn't be able to shave her myself. Lori grooming your cat inside you own home was HUGE. Knowing my cat wouldn't have the added stress of going somewhere was a big yes please for me. The entire visit was an educational experience (she even taught me how to properly use the comb I have) on top of a quick and painless clipping session. Lori's experience definitely shined and it was 100% worth it!

Had an amazing grooming experience. She was so knowledgeable and gentle with our cat. Definitely the best cat groomer in the area and best part was she did it right in our home. We didnt need to put out cat through the stress of driving her to the appointment and dropping her off! 10 out of 10!
