Your cat's appointment will last roughly 3 hours.
Cat grooming prices start at $80 for a bath and brush. Any additional services will be considered add on services, and will be charged accordingly.
Bath, blow-dry, nail trimming, paw & ear clean, sanitary clip (groin & bum), de-shedding/brush out and haircut.
Everything above without a haircut.
We offer the following additional services:
- lion trim
- belly shave
- “comb cut”- longer version of a lion trim for people who don’t want to shave the cat all the way down
At Dogfather, cats are only dried using non heated dryers. The “cage dryers” that have had some bad press in the media are not used at Dogfather.
We strongly recommend that you come and pick up your cat as soon as their appointment is finished. We do not have litter boxes here for cats to relieve themselves, and therefore recommend that your cat be picked up as soon as you can.

We can always try. Our groomer has a lot of experience with difficult cats. The only time we can not continue with the groom, is if the cat is showing extreme signs of stress, and aggression.
We do not allow owners to stay for the duration of the groom. Our groomer creates a calm environment using her own calm energy. Bringing any other person into the grooming room can disrupt this environment, and cause more stress on the cats.
If your cat has any health issues, please consult a vet to be sure that cat grooming will not make their disability or illness worse. Its always good practice to ask the vet if there are concerns. We can deal with most special needs, as long as your cat does not have heart problems for which stress can potentially give them a heart attack.
You must bring your cat in a carrier or travel crate. Please do not bring your cat on a leash or in towels / blankets.
Each cat has one-on-one time with the groomer, and at no point and time do they come into contact with other cats. We do not require proof of vaccinations to be able to groom your cat.
As early as 8 weeks. The earlier they start, the better. We especially recommend it for kittens whose coat will need a lot of up keep for the rest of their lives.
