Welcome to City Kitty!

A full service grooming salon exclusively for cats!

City Kitty® is a cat grooming designed exclusively for cats, you won't find a single dog here! We pamper your kitty in a serene, spa-like environment providing them with dedicated and loving attention while they receive personalized care based on an individualized assessment on every visit. Our groomers are experts on feline behavior, handling and grooming. Our interaction with kitties during the grooming process is a critical part of our service. We treat them with respect and dignity, handling them with patience and understanding. 

City Kitty® was established in 2000 as one of the first feline-only grooming salons nationally. First and foremost, we are advocates for felines. We are a resource for understanding behavior problems, health issues, and any issues that contribute to feline wellness.  Through proper training and certification, we offer an unparalleled grooming process for your cat, with products and processes designed to not just make your cat look good today, but for as long possible.  And just like you wouldn't want to bathe yourself in a degreaser like dish soap, we too don't use any degreasers that are harsh on skin, stripping hair of vital nutrients. 

City Kitty® Code of Ethics

At City Kitty® we strive to provide the best possible grooming experience for cats in a calm, spa like atmosphere.   We strive to provide the highest caliber of service, and are passionate about people and their cats.  We evaluate each cat on a per visit basis to ensure that the grooming services we are providing for them are appropriate for each cat.  We care about each and every cat that comes here which is why we don't allow cats with fleas, contagious diseases or other issues that could potentially spread from someone else's cat to yours.

We are happy to offer a number of grooming salon treatments your cats needs. If you have any questions, call (206) 542-7006 or email us at [email protected] and we'll get back to you. Our Edmonds grooming salon is very easy to get to - just check out the map below!

  • John Schwartz
    Owner / City Kitty Edmonds

    John Schwartz bought the Edmonds location of City Kitty in December 2016 and was hand taught cat grooming  by Adrienne Kawamura who originally started City Kitty. As of 2019, John is one of just over 60 Certified Pet Aestheticians in the United States, and the one of 3 in Washington State!  As an Aesthetician, he is trained in the process of skin restoration therapies, often able to resolve many skin or coat related issues through proper grooming practices.  This certification teaches the how, what and why do cats and dogs have the skin and coat that they do, and what role us groomers can play to best take care of it.  With numerous cats at home ranging from rescue cats to his energy filled Bengal, he has lots of experience working with cat behavior issues. John values continuing education in the animal care field and have traveled locally and nationally to attend conferences regarding everything from pet grooming, skin care, and boarding.  John is joined by both Bob and Nastassja at the salon, and we all share in various parts of the grooming process.
