Is Professional Cat Grooming Worth It?

To put it simply, yes!

Our cat groomers are highly trained professionals that will pamper and care for your kitty once they step into our cat boutique or our Smoochie Pooch Mobile Pet Spa right at your door (mobile services available in Northwest, IN only). They know how to handle your pet to keep them calm even when wet. Our cat grooming process gives your cat a deeper clean than they can get on their own. It also helps your cat maintain a healthy, glossy coat to show off proudly while they strut around the house or neighborhood.

Services offered

All cats receiving a complete groom will have the Lion cut done prior to the bath.  If your cat will not tolerate the bath, they will not receive one.
