Carolyn's Mobile Cat Grooming
About this pro
I am rare in the San Antonio area because I am one of the very few groomers that exclusively grooms cats, and I am the only one (as far as I know) that comes to you. Also, call around, my prices are better than most brick and mortar groomers. I love cats! And I love making happy cats! I am not stuck behind a desk or grooming table. Because I work in my clients home, I get a chance to not only make new kitty friends, but people friends. I have the best clients in the world, and I am blessed to count many of my clients among my newest friends.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is based on how far I have to drive, the particular service you need, the personality of your cat, and how long I need to stay to get the job done. Sometimes, I even have to come back another day to finish the groom, if kitty is too stressed out. I can give a basic quote over the phone, but I will be able to give an exact quote once I get my hands on kitty. Many times, owners don't realize how badly matted kitty is, or they aren't sure of kitty's needs. I am not trying to make a million bucks, only happy cats and happy parents. I have many discounts available, senior citizens, multi-cats, and kitten. Just talk to me, and we will work out the best price for both of us.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It kinda fell in my lap. I quit my job as a vet tech in Fort Worth, to move to San Antonio so I could care for my grandmother. My aunt, Patti Fowler is the best dog groomer in New Braunfels (voted 6 years running!). She needed a dog bather, and thought I needed some time away from Grandma, and we both wanted to spend a bit more time together, so I started working for her, part time. I noticed that she never groomed cats, and asked her why. "Cats are crazy! They bite, scratch, and you cant make them stay still." I started watching my Mom and learning how to bathe and trim cats nails since I was very young, 6 or 7, years old. I disagreed with Patti. I have a way with cats, so I asked her if I could give it a try. She taught me how to use the clippers, I got book about cat grooming, and started grooming cats in her salon. One day, a client pair of mine became homebound, and they could no longer bring Schlockett to the salon. He was a very mean cat who had to be sedated just for a bath. Since they lived on my way home, I offered to swing by and groom Schlockett there. He was a different cat! No longer mean, and I realized that it was all because he didn't like to leave his home. From that moment on, I changed my business to be exclusively in-home grooming.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Most common grooming service is what I call "The Full Monty". It includes: Lion cut, nail trim, feet trim, bath, gentle ear cleaning and a basic health check.
