Cat Grooming – Professional Cat Groomer for Lincoln UK and surrounding areas

Cat GroomingThe ONLY Cat Groomer around where there are no dogs in the room.

We are specialist cat groomers/lovers specialising in the removal of matted/knotted hair from long and short-haired cats. Also lion clips, kitten trims, total brush-outs and baths. We adore cats and adore grooming them and making them feel better. Nothing gives us more pleasure than doing this very skilled and enjoyable job!

It is important that cats are groomed by a professional CAT GROOMER and NOT a dog/cat groomer as these groomers are predominently DOG groomers not cat groomers. There will be dogs barking and the smell of dogs everywhere and on the groomer themselves and beleive me cats do not like this. I have experience of this first hand from when I had my grooming parlour in London catering for both cat and dog and although we had a dedicated CAT room where dogs never came in, the cats would hear the dogs barking through the walls and hear the scampering etc and would often fret, become vicious or un handalable making the groomers job very hard too! This is why I chose to specialize in CATS only and it has proven to work far better. I am also one of the very few cat groomers who allow the owner to stay and help with the grooming process.

Cat Grooming session information

  • A full range of grooming treatments is available.
  • All cat grooms include nail trimming and ear cleaning.
  • We do not cut out matts with scissors, we only shave them out as it's the safest way to remove them. Cat's skin is very delicate and moves around like chicken's skin, which can make it easy to cut. We are professionally trained to groom cats in a way that is least likely to hurt your animal.
  • If you do not want your cat completely shaved, we can just shave out the matts and brush out the rest of the coat. We also do just brush-outs of dead loose hair for short and long-haired cats.
  • We can also bath cats if required and hand dry them.
  • We attempt any cat for grooming - we know how to handle even the most difficult cats. Each and every cat as we all know is different in personality. What one cat will allow, another will not. If we feel that a cat is stressed or turns aggressive and cannot be handled, the best solution is sedation by your own vets.
  • As the owner, you can stay with your cat whilst we groom which can be reassuring for the cat.
  • Each appointment is on time and my aim is for cat and owner to be finished within 30 mins to 1hr 30 (tops)
  • 48 hours cancellation is required for each appointment as appointments are scarce and I need to arrange childcare to be able to groom so is imperative.
  • We do not use any sedation and so if you already know that your cat becomes very vicious and cannot be handled please book in at a vets for clipping.

Important

A new law has passed in the UK for the welfare and health of cats and dogs and that is that a cat must be vaccinated, wormed, fed and watered appropriatly and free of knots or discomfort at all times. It is imperative that long haired cats especially are kept reguarly groomed and matt free. It is very uncomfortable for them to walk around with matts down to the skin and makes the skin very dry and itchy – it also makes some cats bad tempered and sluggish. Matts only get worst and if the cat goes outside and get wet in the rain, the knots double and get worst. At the first sign of a knot/matt, if you are not able to comb it out(never cut out) then your cat needs to see a groomer. Ideally long haired cats would come for regular brush outs and undercoat rake outs every 6-12 weeks.

Lion Clips

GroomingWe do 'lion clips' for Persian and long-haired cats that are badly matted, or just need a haircut. Lion clips look good all year round and cats feel very comfortable in them. If you are worried about them feeling cold, we have a fine range of T-shirts and hoodys available. The 'lion clip' is a close shave of the entire body, leaving a mane, furry boots and a half shaved lion tail. Very cute! Our rescue Persian cat Chico stays in a lion clip as he is so cute in it and he is happier for it too! A vet charges £150-200 for one and does a very bad job of it and they use anaesthetic.

We have many clients who claim that since we clip their cats regularly, they have become friendlier, so they book them in every 8-12 weeks for their 'lion clip'.

By appointment only for grooming: contact us via e-mail at or use the Enquiry Form.

Prices for grooming vary as each and every groom and cat is unique! It is difficult to quote over the phone as we cannot see or feel the cat's fur, so an hourly rate may be quoted to you!
