Cat Service & Grooming FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should my cat be professionally groomed?

The frequency of professional grooming depends on your cat. Most cats should be groomed every 6-8 weeks to reduce shedding and trim their nails. 

How much time does it take?

Cat grooming time will depend on your cat's temperament, condition of coat and grooming needs. Full cat grooms vary from 45-90 minutes.  

What shot records are required for grooming?

All cats must have their current Rabies vaccination, either 1 year or 3 year shots.  Please bring a copy of their Rabies certificate to their first groom.

What are the risks to my cat?

Grooming can be stressful for any cat but is especially stressful for older, sick or under-socialized cats.  Our Certified Master Cat Groomer will monitor your cat for signs of stress, such as panting or shaking, and adjust the groom to reduce their stress level. 

Can all cats be professionally groomed?

Cats that are elderly (over 8 yrs old), have health conditions such as heart problems, or pose a danger to itself or the groomer should not be professionally groomed.

Why are the grooming rates for cats higher than dogs?

As a cat owner, you know that cats do not "obey" humans like dogs.  Handling cats requires a different skill set than handling dogs. Bacteria in cats mouths makes infection more likely if a groomer is bitten by a cat than by a dog.
