All Cat Grooming Services

On this page you can find out more about the cat grooming techniques we use, how they can benefit you and your cat and the results you can expect.

Cat Grooming Services

Our cat grooming has gotten so popular, why? Because cats need to be cared for despite their reputation of being amazingly independent animals.

We cater for all breeds and types. The techniques and styles below may be modified to suit your pet’s requirements. This may be determined by your personal request or by your pet’s coat condition, health, temperament, or behaviour.

All cats will receive the required nail trimming as well as free eye and ear cleaning.

Did you know? Regular grooming will save you money on vet fees as it stimulates the skin, the largest organ in the cat’s body.

Appointment times are:   9:30am – Pick up 12:30pm   or   1:00pm – Pick up 4:00pm  – Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays

Booking Requirements

We can only groom so many cats per day as it is a time-consuming service. For health and safety reasons, we need two people present for cat grooming.

Cat grooming appointments require a £20 deposit on booking your cat, which is non-refundable. The deposit is also non-transferable unless the appointment is changed 48 hours prior to the booking time.

There is a £65 minimum charge for cat grooming.

For reasons of health and safety –

  • All cats will have nails cut prior to grooming
  • Cats showing signs of aggression will not be bathed
  • Cats showing signs of aggression will be muzzled

You must disclose if your cat has shown any signs of aggression or will not allow you to pick it up


Do all your services including a bath and dry?

Bathing is not included in any of the cat grooming services (apart from the bath and dry) and is an additional fee.

How do I get my cat in the basket?

We recommend keeping your cat’s basket in the house as a bed. This associates your cat’s basket as a safe and secure place to be, and they will go in willingly.

If you store your cat’s basket in a garage or store room, place it in the house a few days before your appointment.

Put your cat in the basket in a secure room with some treats in the basket.

Professional cat grooming near me?

If you’re searching for local cat grooming, then you might want to consider whether your favourite pet is worth that little extra effort to come to one of UK’s leading cat grooming salons in London. We not only groom cats, but we teach other groomers the trade too, so you can be sure you’re in the best possible place for your cat.
