  • woman wanting me to shave her cat for 25 bucks

    a woman calls me sat,and i was extremely busy,she said her friend recommended me,and wanted to make an appt,for her cat to be bathed and shaved,i give her my price,and she says wow,in pasadena i was only paying 25.00 bucks,i said well i doubt you will find that price anywhere around here,that price is ridiculously cheap,i said well shop around im not the groomer for you,she asked if i knew of a groomer,i just told her a shop that i know does cats,and hang up,she calls back,and asks me do you have that phone #,i say no and im really busy get a phone book,i hang up 10 mins later she calls again i step out to help someone with there dog,my bather answers and the same woman asks i forgot that name of the other groom shop,can you tell me the name,she says that i stepped out,and she doesnt know but just call the shops in the phone book,this looney tunes calls 3 more times but we didnt answer,she left one message wanting me to call her back with the phone number for the other shop,what a nutcase,i wish i knew who refered her to me,and i didnt call her back either,its not like we have a lot of groom shops in the area

    Oh poor you! We have a groomer in the area that has prices since the dinosaurs roamed around. She does cats for $25 and when she went on maternity leave her customers called me. Most of the cat customers booked with me, but the ones that didn't, didn't like my price. I just told them, we are a SALON, not a strip down shop and cats can do major damage and carry alot of nasty little germs that I didn't feel like I needed to put my health at risk.

      That is pretty cheap. I charge more than that even without a bath on most cats.

          I got the same kinda of call last week. Maybe she is calling all us groomers in town and seeing who will bite that price?!!! I hate people who try to negotiate our prices or tell us what they will pay. I wish I could do that at the pumps but it ain't happening!

            People just dont get it

            Personally I don't like to groom cats and will do everything in my power to avoid it. The place where i work is always asking me if I will groom a cat for a client, my answer yeah for at least 65.00, and I get all the money (I work on commission) the reply is always well thats way to much to charge. Well I say we are not the only groomers in town let them find soemone that specializes in them. Like the prior post cats put you at risk for a heck of alot of injuries or infections. I knew a groomer who got bit by a cat and had to be on antibiotics for a couple of weeks the doc said that in at least 85% of cat injurie cases he sees the person injured is going to have to be on antibiotics. Thats not my idea of fun and certainly if I am going to put myself at risk its going to be for a hell of alot more than 25.00. Cats are cute but not that cute

              That's for sure!

              There's a place around me that was doing cat shaves for $25 too. (From what I heard, most small dogs are that price as well!!.) I quit doing cats, but when I did them, I was charging almost triple that price. $25..that's ridiculous.

                WOW ! Here i'm at 65 for shavedowns on cats but go up based on condition and behaviour. Just bath and brush out is 10 less.
                And I thought being close to NY would mean more $$ .
                Congrats, Kentucky !
