Welcome to Wet Whisker, Ltd. Cat Grooming, a specialist in and the 1st holistic mobile cat groomer in the Chicago area. (Please see the Faq's page for the many reasons why cats need baths.)
"Because cats really don't groom themselves; I do." "If your cat isn't becoming to you, it should be coming to me!"
Yes, I most likely come to your area! Covering a diamond shape from Rt. 47 to Lake Michigan and Rt. 176 to I-55. Areas: I'm frequently in & around Bloomingdale, Bartlett, Roselle, Schaumburg, Arlington Heights, Palatine, Geneva, St.Charles, Elgin, the Barringtons, Lake Zurich, Elmhurst, Hinsdale, Westmont, Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, Naperville, and more, of course.
About Wet Whisker: Wet Whisker is an in home (also called house call) mobile grooming service which comes to you. Unlike a mobile, Wet Whisker actually grooms your cat inside the comfort of its own home; the absolute best for your cat.
This is beneficial as stress, which cats are especially prone to, is minimized. No removal from the home, no dog smells, no weird smells & sounds from a different environment, and no chance for escape. Most cats start to stress as soon as they are removed from the home or even when they see the carrier. No reason to put your cat through that when Wet Whisker comes to your home! Owners also benefit from peace of mind as they're welcome to watch kitty being groomed and to see that gentle, compassionate, & holistic methods are employed.
I do not sedate, nor do I recommend sedation. I also do not use restraints such as muzzles, nooses, harnesses, tethering racks, socks covering head, dunking bags, legs wrapped together with tape, helmets, cones, or spraying water in a carrier. I treat cats like cats, with kindred souls, and do not expect them to act like dogs nor traumatize them into submission. If you are fine with those traumatizing practices; call your local dog groomer instead.
Treats are offered but only all meat, natural treats, unless your cat has dietary restrictions.
My philosophy at Wet Whisker is to provide the best grooming experience for your cat, in the best place for that, which is the cat's own home. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for your cat(s) to have holistic grooming inside their own territory. A mobile van doesnot fit into my philosophy.

About Sheryl: Sheryl is the founder & owner of Wet Whisker. I've been owned by cats all my life and love to be surrounded by cats. Lots of cats! Sheryl has purebred Norwegian Forest cats, Maine Coon mix rescues, Ragdolls, a Bengal & occasional foster rescues. My beautiful flame point Himalayan passed at 22 yrs.of age. I also have a Pom (Amish puppy mill rescue), a long-haired Chihuahua, cockatiels, & a 21 yr. old purebred daughter. : )
Sheryl graduated from the Academy of Dog & Cat Grooming Arts in Arlington Heights, IL. Though also certified to groom dogs, her heart & mindset was with cats, and she followed with specialized training, including that through the Professional Cat Groomers Association of America (PCGAA) and the National Cat Groomers Institute of America (NCGIA). The PCGAA is the premier international organizations for setting & maintaining compassionate cat grooming standards, certification, and education. I am a member with both and am a firm believer in continuing education. I also teach holistic cat grooming seminars to students at the above Academy. I enjoy educating groomers-to-be on how they can safely groom cats with gentle compassion and a holistic approach (thank you, Sharron Panther!).
