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.

The groomer was on time and was very friendly. Our cat didn't do well during grooming and the groomer was patient and really tried many different ways of keeping our cat calm and finally getting to the lion cat we wanted.

Josie was such a pleasure to work with. She traveled all the way from NJ to our home in Brooklyn to groom our 2 cats. Quick and efficient, would highly recommend her for all your pet grooming needs.

Wynter was very understanding of my cat's fear of grooming and lashing out! She completed the mission despite getting scratched and bitten by my scared baby. I am very thankful.

My Siberian cat gets fear-based aggression when being handled by groomers. I was nervous when I hired Celestial Paws for the bath & haircut for cats with matted hair since my cat's previous two attempts to be groomed were unsuccessful and the groomers gave up saying she was too aggressive to handle. Autumn showed up with an assistant and a can-do attitude, there was no question in her mind that the job would get done. With the help of some medication, an extra set of hands, and a whole lot of patience, they were able to get the job done! What a relief for both my cat and me to have a fresh start. Autumn let us know what a good grooming schedule would be in order to maintain a healthy triple coat, and we look forward to having her back for a bath in a couple of months.

Highly recommend Josie! My cat was visibly irritable about being groomed but Josie was EXTREMELY patient and professional and was able to help trim her nails and get rid of some matted fur. Would definitely reach out to her again in the future.

Deborah did a wonderful lion cut on my cat. My cat does not like when new people come into the house and he doesn’t like being groomed even though he really needs it. Deborah worked very quickly since he has a short amount of time to allow it. We gave him two breaks just for a few minutes and Deborah understood and then went right back to work. Grooming visits give me anxiety but it all went so well. Thrilled I found such a lovely person who does a great job and comes to your home. My new groomer!

I can't describe how wonderful Autumn was for our poor matted cat! Our boy had many mats, and we were so worried about how he'd handle his first grooming. Autumn was so kind, caring, well-prepared, and professional, and she absolutely radiated a calm that made us all feel at ease. She did such a thorough and beautiful job! Throughout the whole thing she treated our cat with such love and tenderness, it was obvious that she truly cares about the animals she looks after. Our boy looks beautiful and feels wonderful! 😽
