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.

Reviews for Providence cat groomers

My experience with Cathy was wonderful! She is a very skilled groomer and was a pro with my cat. I recently took in a Himalayan, Zoey, who is extremely skittish and who had become terribly matted. Cathy not only had a calming collar for the cat to wear, but she also worked diligently on her for nearly 3 hours! I was astounded by the matted condition of the fur which did not become fully apparent until Cathy got to working on her. Cathy took on the challenge with a grain of salt and did a remarkable job! Cathy's disposition with the cat was very kind, calm and caring. She was very friendly and personable with me as well and followed up after the groom to see how Zoey was getting along. I am so grateful Cathy was able to help with Zoey's coat, and I definitely plan to use her again when my cats just need a simple bath, groom and nail trim. Cathy is the best and I definitely recommend her services! Thank you, Cathy, for your hard work and excellent grooming experience! : )

Our ragdoll (Mia) was matted and it was affecting her quality of life. Enter Lori. Lori's love of cats was apparent from the start. Mia is not an easy cat to groom (she refused to sit still) but Lori was incredibly patient and gentle with Mia. Now Mia looks fantastic and her mood is much improved. Lori went above and beyond and is a consummate professional. Needless to say, we have found our forever groomer.

Lori replied to my inquiry in less than 3 minutes after I contacted her. We spoke on the phone after and asked relevant questions about our cat and agreed to come down see us (we live in Providence RI). She arrived on time on the day of the grooming and was well prepared from her tools dow to cat toys and cat nip. She is a pro. She handled our Persian cat so well. He was matted all over and his back was pelted. She was able to remove the pelt in less than 10 minutes. Our cat wasn’t having it, he peed on her, tried to nip her a few times but she never lost her cool. He had to be shaven all over because of his bad condition, but Lori still managed to give him a lion cut. He is now well and happy and is able to lick himself clean freely. She taught us how to untagle fur too and proper face cleaning She also gave our cats toys and catnip! Our other cat got a free nail trim too. I can’t imagine finding a better groomer than Lori. She really is the best at what she does. She knows her stuff. Thank you Lori!!! You are the best!
