grooming is important both for the physical appearance of your cat and
its health. Grooming a cat is not easy which is why if possible you
should start grooming while it is still a kitten. This helps to ease
any fears and as they mature they will be comfortable with the process.
professional and compassionate staff knows how to calm down even the
toughest kitty and will work with yours to eliminate any stress. A
consultation with the groomer ensures that your specific requests and
any problem areas will be addressed. Your groomer will determine, based
on your cat’s coat and your input, what is the best shampoo and
conditioner for your cat’s health and look. We offer several types of
shampoos including Oatmeal, Hypo-allergenic, Flea, Whitening and others
designed to create a healthy and beautiful cat.
Frequently Asked Questions about Cat Grooming:
Do cats really need grooming? Don’t cats groom themselves? Many
cats do indeed do a great job of grooming themselves, but if your cat’s
hair is beginning to tangle, if your cat is shedding excessively, or if
someone in your family is very allergic to cat hair, you may benefit
from having your cat professionally groomed.
How do you groom a cat, aren’t they very difficult?
cats are very resistant to the grooming process. The grooming salon
atmosphere and restraint can be very stressful. (For this reason we
strongly recommend that you do not schedule your grooming on Saturday,
when the shop is busiest and noisiest.) We have several tools and
techniques which help us to safely groom your cat, but we do not use sedatives or tranquilizers and
may find that the grooming shop atmosphere is too stressful for some
cats. If we cannot handle your cat safely (for us AND your cat), we may
recommend that you have the grooming done at a veterinarian’s office,
where your pet can be sedated.

Yes, actually with some cats having the owner stay and help is the only way we can handle the cat.
My cat’s hair is tangled in clumps (matted); does it have to be shaved?
your cat’s hair becomes matted the safest and most humane way to deal
with the problem is to shave under the matted hair. Usually this is the
ONLY way the tangles can be removed. Trying to brush or comb out matted
or tangled hair often causes the clump to simply pull completely off the
skin, leaving a bare, irritated, patch of skin. Trying to “cut the mat
out” with scissors is very dangerous. Please don’t try to do that
yourself. Too often after a cat’s owner has tried to cut out the mats we
find a cut wound under the mats, where the owner has actually cut the
cat’s skin under the mat, without ever even knowing they have cut their
How much does cat grooming cost?

also if the hair is matted and tangled. The price includes a full
