She was very punctual and very professional, although unfortunately she wasn't able to groom my cat because my cat was NOT having it. After she set up and I got my cat to her trailer, we started with clipping her nails, but after the first nail, my cat scratched us both, so that was all she needed to know that grooming my cat wasn't possible. The best part was that when I asked how much I owed her, she would not accept any money. She came all the way to my house, set up, decided she wasn't going to be able to groom my cat, and wouldn't accept a dime. Very gracious and I'm very pleased. (I eventually had to take my cat to the vet and have her groomed under sedation, and even the groomer at the vet said she was a monster.)

The groomers were able to do three of my cats, but one, a very hairy and matted rag doll, was too matted. They connected me with a groomer at a nearby vet's office, who was able to do the job! It was not as neat a job as the groomer at Designer Paws did on my big male, who was also rather matted, but they had been afraid the VERY matted rag doll would have to be sedated. AS it turned out she did not have to be sedated after all.

    I have been using Good Dog Grooming for years. My dog is always happy when she leaves, looks great and Julie does awesome work. My dog gives four paws up.

    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.
