Services & Pricing


If you have never had your cat professionally groomed before, I invite you to speak with me. Once I see your kitty and we discuss your needs, I can offer suitable solutions to whatever issues you and your cat are dealing with.

Whisker Tales Cat Grooming offers a variety of services to meet your cat’s grooming needs.

Some of the problems you and your cat may be dealing with are tangles, mats, dandruff, allergies, hairballs, sharp or ingrown claws, shedding, grease, odors, and unsanitary conditions. Whatever the problem, I have a solution.

Senior Groom Package

Sometimes our senior cats need only what is necessary to keep them comfortable and happy.  Some do well being bathed with warm and soothing water over their joints. Some will do well with just a nail trim, sanitary trim (especially important for seniors with arthritis who have trouble keeping themselves tidy), eyes/ears/face cleansed and a comb out or brush out.  Some have mats that need removing to relieve pain and discomfort.

Please call to discuss your senior cat’s needs.  When you arrive for your appointment and we have had a chance to assess your kitty’s condition and temperament we will tailor a package for them taking into consideration your requests and our recommendations.

**Price will be dependent upon this discussion.


If fleas are found during the groom, a flea bath will automatically be given and a surcharge added for shampoo and salon cleanup.  (If you do not agree, we cannot continue with the groom as this will pose a risk of fleas to other clients’ cats.  Thank you for understanding.) * SEE POLICIES – Fleas and Other Parasites.

Extra charges will be applied for the following (price dependent on severity):

  • Mat removal
  • Pelt removal
  • Fecal matter removal
  • Ingrown nails
  • Flea shampoo

* Prices subject to change
