Cat Grooming Options and Info

In our salon in Richfield, we offer services as packages and ala carte. We go at the cat's pace to ensure a positive experience, usually a 2 hour stay.  Rush services where we only work on your cat with no interruptions (45-60 min stay) are available for an extra fee.
Our salon has never, and will never have a dog in it, reducing fear and stress during your cat's groom. Our feline grooming equipment is designed with cat behavior and well being in mind. We approach each cat as an individual and holistically, keeping the cats perspective in mind to successfully groom even difficult kitties. We reserve the right to stop any groom that we feel will harm a cat physically or emotionally. Please be aware that not all cats are good candidates for being groomed while awake, or for every trim style we offer. 
See video below for styles and add-ons we offer at The Cat's Meow by our professionally trained groomers. Matted and tangled coats take more time to remove and are priced accordingly. Most clients find our prices very affordable and competitive. You can find cheaper grooming, but not higher quality grooming! Please call to discuss your cat's needs and get a price quote.

 We require:

  • Rabies vaccine with current date, rabies titer, or note from your vet with reason for non vaccination is required. No tags, expired papers, handwritten papers, or verbal assurances for rabies vaccine will be accepted.
  • If possible, please bring your cat in a carrier with a top opening. We prefer to start the groom off right by picking up your cat, vs dragging it out of a front opening carrier, or perhaps being bitten reaching in.

 Cats require special care and attention. Stress is bad for the cat and the groomer. Not many groomers will attempt cats, but here at The Cat's Meow, we love kitties and have groomed thousands. We routinely groom 60 to 80 cats per week in our salon and have been open since 2014. Jennifer is a certified Master Groomer, and has taken hands on training at the National Cat Groomers Institute and The Professional Cat Groomers Association of America in safe holding techniques, haircut styles, behavior, and stress reduction while grooming cats. She and her staff are the experts on cat grooming in the Twin Cities area. A calm, quiet environment, cat behavior focused handling, and an open mind and calm energy help us complete our tasks. 

We succesfully grooms the cats other refuse, or those that have been sedated previously at the vet. We will attempt to groom any cat. While having the skill to groom difficult or aggressive cats, we also draw a line when it comes to physically or emotionally harming a cat during grooming. We also have certain grooms we cannot perform on older cats with thin skin. Remember that thrashing, swatting, wildly moving cats, and sharp clippers do not mix well. We simply will not groom a cat in a style that will possibly harm them, so be aware of this before you book. We want to please our customers, but humanity comes before vanity.

Experience and professional training in cat grooming allows our groomers to safely and positively complete the cats others cannot. Experience also allows us to know when to stop the groom.  Also, the cats know when the groomer enjoys grooming them and respects them. Understanding feline behavior and body language helps cats feel safer and more calm. A holistic approach to cat grooming means a safe environment, non toxic shampoos, and viewing the cats as individuals , tailoring the process to their needs. 
Expect short stays, and straight through grooms are available for an additional fee. We have a wide variety of appointment times available, including evening and Saturday appointments.
We only use cat safe shampoos and products, and never restrain them except with our hands (cats should never be put in a grooming "noose"), and all equipment and tools are fully disinfected between each cat.
