    So I got the 3 kids groomed today. They charged me 15 bucks a piece for them. They got their ears really clean but they still had some crusty butt (but could have pooed before I had a chance to look at butts) but they left a lot of brown spots on all cats. They got the majority of it off but even Jacks belly had some left but they got in his wrinkles so I don't know. They also some how cut in between Jack's toes. Like from scrubbing to hard. Then there was Ben's reaction and she told me he had two baths since he pooped on himself. I don't think I will ever have it done again, because I think I can get them cleaner, minus the ears. I HATE ears, the wax makes me gag.

    I would rather do it my self.
    Remember most groomers do not know anything about sphynx.
    There are some sphynx breeders that are groomers though and I have some freinds that are groomers.
    The stuff they use can cause rashes.

    She has never done a sphynx before but she owns chinese crested. I dunno I wanted to see how it went. I wasn't impressed.

    I would not do it again.
    Your poor cat paid the price now also.
    I saw a chinese crested today.

    Thanks for the report. Sounds like my experience - was worth having done once but it wasn't so good that you want to go back.

    Well, 15 dollars isn't a bad price. My furry cats are charged $50 per cat to get groomed, not including tip....but, it's a bummer that they didn't do a very good job on yours.
