we have a long haired cat that we have to get shaved a couple times a year. He is not a good self groomer and if we don't get him shaved he gets mats everywhere that we can't get out. We tried shaving him ourselves with a pet safe electric razor, but it didn't work very well. It took forever, was messy, and didn't get enough off. It was also extremely choppy looking. So we gave up on trying to save money on it and we call the Aussie Pet Mobile to come to The House. they take him out to their truck and shave him. They do a great job and I love that I don't have to go anywhere to get it done. All I do is hand them the cat and then they bring him in when they are done. I pay them and they leave. They are also very nice. But I spend $90 on it twice a year. Which I think is expensive. What have you paid for cat grooming? Did you have to go someplace? Did they do a good job?
