    Does anyone get their sphynx groomed by a groomer? My one cat just drives me nuts how dirty he is. I bathe him often but thought a good scrubbing by a professional would be nice once in a while. Do you think people are going to think I am nuts when I asked to get my hairless cat groomed?

      Iwould love to see the groomers face. I wonder if they would give you a discount since you wouldn't need a detangling rinse.

            I take 5e to a groomer to get his nails clipped -- If they aren't clipped, I swear he has a paw-full of razors.

            I'm not so good at the 'immobilize the cat, but in a non-traumatic way' game that is needed to keep nails trimmed. so the groomer is the best option for me

              Never have taken Butternuts to the groomer. But one day I took him to Petsmart and one of the groomers saw him and told me to bring him back and she'd clean out his ears. I decided to go back and see what they would charge to clip and clean. I can't remember why but for some reason they couldn't tell me how much it would cost. The groomer graciously cleaned his ears though. His ears haven't been that clean since.

                  I know Petco will not see cats at all. I haven't had a chance to call anyone yet. I trim all my cat's nails myself. Even the naughty one that I have to scruff, hold the paw and trim by myself! My vet also offeres free nail trims if I want but I don't feel like driving out there, (its pretty far from my house) for a toe nail trim.

                  I take Johnny to visit this little pet store here in town and there is a groomer there that tells me all the time that she used to groom Sphynx. She was a mobile groomer and she used to go to a ladies house and clean her Sphynx once a week so its not that uncommon!

                    Ben goes in on Tuesday! I called a vet's office I used to work for, and the lady owns Cresties so she said she understood about being oily. This is the first time he has been to the vet since I got him. I am nervous about heart issues. He is very mellow and laid back compaired to my other cats. He rarely "plays". He is almost always on me or hiding somewhere. The lady I got him from could not produce his vaccine record for me so he has to get new shots to be groomed.

                    Maybe Ben will come home from the groomer a new man. Good luck.

                    Never taken Mo to a groomers, but have thought about it. There is a good one in town but I'm not sure that they will of ever seen a sphynx before, they aren't very well known cats round here. Mo is probably the only one for miles! I don't mind cleaning his ears or clipping his nails because he's very good at keeping still fo me, but I hate nail cleaning! It seems to take so long and they get so grubby so fast don't they!
