Kara and her team are purely wonderful! I brought our cranky 12 year old female at to her for grooming. Our cat decided to stop grooming from behind her shoulders all the way back and ended up with large mats of fur. It was almost like a suit of armor. After awhile brushing was impossible. Well she is like a whole new cat now after a visit with Kara. She even seems happier, prancing around and looking for attention. Everyone at PPP was so friendly and caring. You could tell right off they have a passion for what they do. We will be regular customers now to keep our cat looking and more importantly feeling good!

The service at Paws on Main Street is one of a kind. The open space and home like atmosphere provides a calm environment for my fur baby Bentley. What I found heartening is when I frist brought Bentley in for his very frist grooming. Yeah both of us were nervous but as soon as we entered Fran came right over sat down on the floor and got to know my puppy. I knew from that very frist meeting the two were bonding and I felt humbled to find someone so caring and thoughtful. So it's been over two years that Bentley has had spa days at Paws. Fran even allowed us to have a doggy birthday party for a friend' s furbaby's 9th Birthday. What can I say love love Paws. My Bentley always feels so good after his visit. Beautiful people providing exceptional service.

Holly watched our dog, Rocky, for 2.5 weeks over Xmas. Rocky is a senior and requires medications. Holly was very kind to our old boy. Her fee was very good and level of service far exceeded expectations. I will, without a doubt, use her again and recommend her to everyone I know!

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.
