Onyx, my kitten and me, are having an exciting day today! To get back to the topic i have a nice sounding lady who is coming from a mobile groomer this evening, and she is going to give my Onyx a mani/pedi ( trimming his nails) and he will not have to travel by car to the groomer! His nails need it as they are much too long. Also, we are going to celebrate with a new treat twice a month.Today, Monday is one month since he let me adopt him. Then on Saturday his 7-month old birthday! He is growing up so quickly! i just adore the little guy! Do you have a certain day (s) you celebrate with your pet more than one time a year?

I never took him to a groomer yet, and it is easier for me to get somebody at the house. He has only been here a month. Give Ms. Ruby love from both Onyx and me!

@amadeo i just took a chance and called a groomer and asked if they had a mobile person who comes to the house. A very nice girl, Kelly, came last night, and it was done without too much of a problem

So good to hear that Onyx will be having a beauty treatment!!! He has some nice days coming his way with those treats. Heck, we celebrate most days with Molly due to her being spoiled rotten.

Onux sends his thanks and love to Aunt Catherine and cousin Missy daisy and sends some meows too! We have to wait about another hour as the lady is coming at 6-6:30 this evening and it is only 5 in the afternoon. He gets his new treat after getting is mani/pedi!!!

Sounds adorable. They grow up so fast. A mobile groomer is the only way to go when grooming any pet. They're cute but that ain't my favorite job.

Yes, he is growing so quickly. I don't want to do any grooming myself as I am unaware how to do it properly I would rather somebody else do it

I am impressed and intrigued. I have never ever had my nails trimmed and Human 1 combs me every day. I think I am too old to start with strangers, but it sounds like a wonderful luxury. Happy Birtday little kitty. Love from Freya, the Catblog Cat

Onyx really needs his nails trimmed as they are much too long! I am hoping that starting him early with nail trimming that he will get used to it Onyx sends you, Frey, his love, and a huge meow many of them!

@RubyHawk Yes, i was. But it is a combination of Onyx and a large dose of sleeping medicine that is an antidepressant. I always say i could not be sad even if I tried!!!

Aww how sweet Jennifer. I bet Onyx loves you back. As for mobile groomer, I might consider it, if the price is right. I do celebrate his birthday, Christmas, the anniversary of when I received him. I reward him for good behavior at least twice a month.

@KristenH I don;t know how up to it Onyc will be but the nails hurt when he crawls on me as they are so long. They dis tell me at the shelter that he should get them trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks and today is four weeks exactly

Oh so you didn’t get a kitten then she was already 7 months. That’s always nice as most people don’t want to adopt any that aren’t super tiny and cute. Yes I would do a travel groomer if it was a good cost.

My kitten was five months old when i adopted him. He was not super tiny as we think he is growing up into a big cat as he has huge paws and his tail is very big. He cannot control his tail, and it is everywhere!

I would love a mobile groomer for my cat Mildred, who sends purrs and high fives to Onyx. Mildred won't let me groom her or cut her nails or get her in the crate. The vet's assistant picks her up at my house, takes her to the vet's for grooming and I pick her up later.

Onyx was thrilled with the purrs and high fives! He sends meows that is his specialty! Maybe you should call around as the mobile groomer i started to use has a regular place that one can bring their pets to it but also a mobile groomer. How does the vet's assistant get Mildred to the groomers if she will not go in her crate? Maybe there are places that will have a mobile one you can use.. It is nice as if i had a 6:30 at night appointment i would have to have taken Onyx in a pouring rainstorm. The groomer came in the house and no rain on ONyx or me for that matter!

@Marty1 Mildred started out a bit feral and won't go in the crate for me. I close Mildred in the front porch so she can't run away and the vet assistant is a great big strong guy who can pick her up by the scruff and get her in. I'm not strong enough to pull that off without getting scratched. Other than that, Mildred is just about purrfect!!

@LindaCPearson I agree with you Mildred is purrfect! I didn't realize the vet assistant was a strong man. I have a box for Onyx, and he does not like at all. It is also much easier to have one come to the house as i have to wait for somebody to drive us as i do not drive

Mine go to the groomer every month. But then it's at the vet's office right up the street. But yes, I would consider that if the groomer in town was too far away or there wasn't one here.

I am using a mobile groomer as i do not drive and would have to wait for somebody to take me to the groomers with Onyx. This is much better as his groomer Kelly who is a total sweetheart comes and does it and it is over for another month
