What do cat groomers do?

This is a mobile cat grooming service that includes all the tasks necessary to groom your cat. The service can consist of giving your cat a good brushing down to untangle matted fur, trimming their claws, trimming their overgrown fur, bathing them then drying them off. 

Brushing and combing 

Your cat groomer begins brushing your cat’s fur with a broad, cat grooming brush or cat grooming glove. They brush your cat’s back and flanks, then gradually move to their more sensitive areas like the neck, legs, paws and belly. After the brushing, they use a fine-toothed steel comb. 

Your groomer combs your cat to loosen or untangle any matted fur and gently teases out any tangles. If your cat groomer finds any fleas or bumps on your cat while grooming, they may advise you of the presence of fleas or any unusual skin conditions that they notice.  

Clipping overgrown fur

As part of long-haired cat grooming, your groomer can trim your cat’s overgrown fur with electric clippers and special scissors. This is only necessary for long-haired cat breeds with hair that has grown unmanageable and makes it uncomfortable for your kitty. Your groomer can trim or shave off matted fur and ensure that the cuts are even to give your cat a neat appearance. 

Trimming nails

Next, your groomer trims your kitty’s nails if they are overgrown. They use a special trimming tool to shorten each nail, taking care not to cut too close to the quick (the blood vessel close to the cat’s paw) and cause bleeding. In the unlikely event that one of your cat’s nails is cut too close to the quick, your groomer can apply styptic powder or cornstarch to stop the bleeding.

Bathing your cat

Bathing your cat is considered excessive grooming and is recommended only in some instances like when your cat has become very dirty or if they are elderly cats and don’t groom themselves anymore. Hairless breeds also need to be bathed once a week.  

Should your cat need a bath, your groomer begins by gently restraining your cat with a cat harness. Some groomers may hold your cat by the scruff of its neck, but a harness can keep your groomer’s hands-free and make bathing them easier.  

Your groomer uses warm water and slowly pours water onto your cat’s body with a non-spray hose; expert groomers never spray-on or immerse your cat in water as this causes unnecessary stress and can traumatise your cat. They apply a hypoallergenic cat shampoo all over your feline friend, then gently and thoroughly rinse this off.  

Drying your cat

After the bath, your groomer proceeds to dry them. They can use several towels, a hairdryer or both. Your groomer ensures that the hairdryer is on the “low” setting to avoid stressing or traumatising your precious feline. Once their fur is dry, your groomer gently brushes your cat.
