About the services & fees

Here you can find a list of the services, with also the fees, and my service areas for house visits.
Please note that as of 1 January 2016 additional costs will be charged for the extra work on cats with big mats and felted fur. Grooming coats in such a condition means extra grooming time and afterwards extra cleaning & desinfecting of used tools. Also extra attention is needed from the groomer when shaving felted fur due to much higher risk of cutting the skin.

I groom cats on Wednesday afternoon, Friday afternoon and on Saturdays, next to my regular office job.

My grooming salon,  a small but quiet room at my house, is located in Amsterdam Zuidoost, Montfoorthof. Within my service areas (see below) I also do house visits.

Regular & extra fees:

  • Clipping nails:

standard before any treatment. Only the tips are clipped off. The nails will have their normal sharpness again in about 1 to 2 weeks time. Appointments for only clipping the nails (without grooming): only in the grooming salon or in Amsterdam South East.
Fee: € 8

  • Shaving:

if the cat has mats that can’t be detangled, or felted fur, the coat will be shaved off. Head, tail and legs will not be shaved.
Please note that after being groomed a shaved cat that has acces to a garden or balcony must be able to go indoors as it pleases (during each season). Also make sure the cat is kept warm during the trip home after the shaving session.
Fee shaving entire cat: € 46 regular fee, €50 – € 60 for badly matted and/or felted coats.
Fee shaving chest-arm pits-belly-groins: € 40
Fee shaving shoulders-back-sides: € 30
Extra fee matted or felted coat: € 5
Shaving tail area (sanitary trim) if needed: included

  • Undercoat removal:

loose hair will be removed manually. This is only possible if there are no or just a few mats.
Fee long haired cat: € 42
Fee short hair with regular coat (< 30 minutes): € 34
Fee short hair with full coat, like British Shorthair / Exotic (> 30 minutes):  € 38
Shaving tail area (sanitary trim) if needed: included

  • Combination Shaving & Stripping:

 it’s also possible to shave only the problem areas (for instance belly, arm pits, groins) and strip the rest of the coat.
Fee: € 46 regular, €50 for badly matted and/or felted coats.

  • Washing:

if the cat’s coat has gotten a bit greasy or dandruffy at the end the grooming session, the cat will be sponged down with a hand cloth, and dried with a towel.

Fee sponging and towel-drying: no extra fee, included.

It’s possible to shower the cat with shampoo (for cats), but because the washing itself and the dry blowing afterward causes a lot of the extra stress for most cats. Therefor this is only done in exceptional cases (!) and, for practical reasons, only in the salon.I also prefer to let the cat keep it’s own smell as much as possible. Especially if the cat is sharing its house with more pets.
Fee shower & blow drying in combination with grooming treatment:  € 12,50 / after lion cut € 7,50
Fee shower & blow drying as seperate treatment: € 35

kattenpootje-rozeBecause of the many grooming requests I can only take in new house visit-clients within my service areas (but read the tips below).

Cats from outside these service areas are welcome in my grooming salon.

  • Tip for cat owners in Amsterdam OSDORP/WEST/CENTER and HOOFDDORP-HAARLEM area: Ajda Dirican, one of my clients, has followed the cat groomer training herself and has started her own grooming service. She can be reached via the contact info on her website www.beautifulcat.nl
  • Tip for cat owners in Amsterdam CENTER, ZUID and ZAANSTAD: there is a good cat groomer once a month in the shop Cats & Things. She also has a salon in WORMER (ZAANSTAD).
  • Tip for cat owners in Amsterdam ZUID. Amsterdam ZUID now also has a cat groomer: www.thecatbarber.nl. She also has a salon in HEM (between HOORN aand ENKHUIZEN).

You can also look for the websites of cat groomers elsewhere in The Netherlands here, or contact your vet.
