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 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


What should I do before bringing my cat in the shop?

Do not feed your cat within 2 hours of its appointment. Please make sure your cat comes in a secure basket.

How do I get my cat in the basket?

Keep your cats basket in the house as a bed. This associates your cats basket as a safe and secure place to be and they will go in willingly.

If you store your cats basket in a garage or store room, place them 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.

Will my cat be near any dogs?

We dedicate Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays to cat grooming.

We groom in other rooms apart from the main salon, so the cats are not in contact with any dogs.

My cat has knots and/or matts

We have to assess individually each animal including the coat condition, health and behaviour as there are various techniques and equipment we can use to rid the coat of matts and knots and to leave the cat feeling more comfortable.

Please contact us for a free consultation.

What if my cat is aggressive?

Please tell a staff member at Absolutely Animals immediately when dropping off your cat if they have any behaviour difficulties. This includes biting, growling or scratching.

Please contact us for a free consultation.

Why does it cost more for a cat to be groomed than a dog?

It costs additional money because it is a time consuming process and there are more safety issues with cat grooming so we need to provide two staff.

How long will it take to groom my cat?

You will need to bring your cat in at 9:30am and pick up at 12:30pm
1:00pm and pick up at 4:00pm, unless otherwise arranged
