Your Cat Grooming questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to groom a cat?

The average cost to groom a cat is $30 to $70. Mobile grooming typically costs more. Prices vary by region, zip code, the specific grooming services performed, and the cat's hair length and condition. Kittens and short-haired cats cost the least to groom, while grooming long-haired cats takes more work and costs the most. Most cat groomers charge extra for matted hair.

  • Groomers may offer a full grooming package or charge separate fees for à la carte services.
  • Many groomers charge an extra fee if they find fleas while grooming as they typically require an immediate flea bath to ensure the fleas don't spread to other animals in the facility.

Do cats need to be groomed?

Yes, while most cats groom themselves, they still typically need some additional grooming. Brush short-haired cats once per week. Long-haired cats are higher maintenance and should be brushed once daily. Regular brushing removes dead hair and dirt, reduces shedding and hairballs, helps prevent mats, and allows you to catch early signs of potential health issues.

  • Regular activity often wears down cat's nails naturally, but checking and trimming them as needed is a good practice to keep your you, your cats, and your furniture safe.
  • Most cats don't require a bath but consider bathing service if your cat spends time outside, has a skin condition, or cannot physically bathe themselves.

Long-haired cats living in warm climates may benefit from a haircut or shaving to keep cool. Older long-haired cats, no matter the climate, may also enjoy a shorter haircut and not having to self-groom as much.

How often should I take my cat to the groomer?

Take your long-haired cat to the groomer every 3 months, or sooner if they develop mats in their fur. Short-haired cats do not typically need a professional groomer unless a vet advises you that they do.

How do I choose the best cat groomer near me?

When searching for a cat groomer near you, be sure to:

  • Choose an experienced cat groomer who has a business license and insurance.
  • Look for certified members of the National Cat Grooming Institute (NCGI) or members of International Professional Groomers, Inc. (IPG), with Cat Certification.
  • Check their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask for and check their references.

What questions should I ask when hiring a cat groomer?

Ask these questions to ensure you find the best cat groomer near you:

  • What experience do you have?
  • What certifications do you hold?
  • What professional organizations do you belong to?
  • Can you provide a list of references?
  • Where will you keep my cat before and after grooming?
  • Are there dogs at your grooming facility?
  • What is included in your standard rate?
  • Do you charge extra for long hair?
  • Do you charge extra for matted hair?
  • What add-on services do you offer?
  • How long does the grooming usually take?
  • Do you sedate animals before grooming?
  • My cat is indoors-only; do you offer haircut services without a bath?
  • Do you have any discounts or package deals?

Susan O.
Samantha is by far the best cat groomer we have ever used- and we have used a lot. Our cats have even loved being groomed by her. I highly recommend the Main Lion Salon. I would not recommend another salon.

So very pleased with Alyssa. She was able to provide immediate availability, she arrived on time and provided grooming in a socially distant manner. My dog was groomed professionally in a very stress free manner. My dog looks fantastic. I’m so happy I found a perfect grooming option for my older dog.
