Took my 11 year old cat to Nekomori for the first time.It was a good experience. I received videos and photos of the grooming session. After Manji came home he was not as fidgety as previous grooming sessions at another location.Will definitely bring him to Nekomori in future.

It was our first time here at Nekomori and now definitely be the only place i send my baby to; eversince I had a bad experience at “Hans qitty cut”. Nekomori was indeed a pleasant experience! I was so happy when I manage to get them within one call; although all the pet groomer would require us to book an appointment in advance. Nekomori actually took my last minute request! When i reach Nekomori, i met this two beautiful ladies who were very friendly and helpful towards babycat and me! They were amazing and baby cat was very comfortable with them! “Rachel & Quincy” were my superheroes! They did a great work by promptly explaining to me the services and charges before proceeding with anything. They even advice me on how to maintain baby cat health. Nekomori really have the best Artisans, looking at the videos and pictured they have taken during the session! They assured me that my babyboy is in good hands 😻 So glad that i finally found the best place to send baby for grooming. Ps; the place was surprisingly big and super clean. They have this waiting area where u can sit and see ur furbabies!

The only place I bring my cats for grooming/spa treatments since the day they open ‘em doors! A tad pricey (since I’ve two cats) but anything for my furbabies and I especially loved the fact that they only cater to cats so my own cats don’t get too intimidated/afraid when they’re at the groomers. Lovely staffs. All in all a 10/10 👌🏻

Sent our two 6 month old cats (one is quite scared of water) for their first grooms, and they came out looking fresh and squeaky clean!The team were kind enough to share photos and videos of our cats behaving themselves. They take real pride in looking after cats and will definitely return in the future.

The Nekomori artisans did an exceptional job with my cat. He tends to get moody when it’s time for a bath which sometimes results in him being aggressive. We opted for transport service that day and I was very pleased with the communication of grooming services required, down to payment as it all went smoothly. They gave me call before they started grooming to let me know what needed to be done that day and a heads up that should my cat be aggressive, there would be additional charges. I appreciate the transparency very much. They were able to send me a video of him settling into his bath despite them being busy with other cats as well — thank you Quincy and Kah Yong!Here’s meowmi chilling after being sent home 🙂 Till the next visit!

Highly recommended for all cat pawrents! I have been bringing my kitty to Nekomori since the end of 2019. I am anal in terms of hygiene and cleanliness so the salon has passed my standards! 😉 Place is clean, dry, no smell and tidy. Both Quincy and Kah Yong are professional in their work process and work ethics. They will spend time to discuss with me what is required and what is not, depending on their pre-assessment of my kitty so that I do not spend unnecessary money. Honest in their dealing and no hidden cost. They were clear and accurate in their communication, for eg: they will pre-empt me that if my kitty was aggressive, there would be additional charge which I think it is fair because, as we all know a cat's character and temperament are always unique, special and unpredictable! They may be gentle and docile at home but changed personality at a new place, no less to shower! Ah, how different is that from human where we yearn to go for monthly spa! Thankfully, my kitty is a good boi but u never know, cats do have their moods too and may "chat" lots during shower on some months but they handled my kitty very well, very gentle, no rough handling definitely and thorough, almost like every strand of fur is in order (no fur is left behind untreated, hahaha), neat and tidy even though my kitty is a short-haired boi. They would also take the effort to take videos and photographs to send to me during the process. I think this additional service assures me that my boi is in good hands! These two young persons are also true animal lovers as I know they adopt strays and spend the money and time to take care of the sick animals on their own too. Indeed, living out to your beliefs and passion, and LOVE for animals! Just like we look for a good and Ani-mane (humane) vet, we also want to be assured of a groomer for our kitties who cares and not just do the job to shower, cut, blow and dry. So, stay true to your passion and love for the animals and keep up the professionalism, Kah Yong and Quincy! Cheers!

Nekomori did a great job taking care of my senior cat Suki. They were gentle and professional AND they knew what she could and couldn’t handle. They called me to let me know what was happening too. Really great service and professional groomers who really looked after my grumpy old queen. You can trust them with your senior cats ❤️

My cat really enjoyed the session at Nekomori! She kept going back into her carrier, looking forward to the next session already 🤣 The groomers really handled my cat very gently and even advised me to opt for essential (instead of the more expensive signature) as this was her first time and she looked wary of the bigger clippers 😅 I also like that the Salon doesn’t force treatment on the cat, e.g. if my cat cannot sit through the wet bath comfortably, the Salon wouldn’t proceed with the Spa I requested for, and also won’t charge me for it. Can’t wait for her next grooming session 😍

brought my cat here for his 1st time grooming today and i have to say i was pretty impressed by the after service. groomers were professional, polite, honest and transparent. never have i felt more comfortable with any vendors. tiger (my cat) was also very calm after the session and did not look distressed. i am very glad i have chosen and picked out his first grooming with nekomori cat salon because it was such a great start out for him to begin getting used to this process which is so important to me. great place, great vibes and most importantly great for your cats. choose them, and you won’t have to regret later.

Highly recommend this cat salon.. very professional Artisans who not only make the pet parents comfortable, our little cat also behave well and calm during the whole process. I am very happy with them and will definitely go back again. On top of the good services, the salon is exceptionally clean and neat. Smell nice too. They sweep and clean up after each grooming session leaving no fur around .. all I can say is good good good 👍🏻

It was very easy to make an appointment with Nekomori. The team is responsive, and provided clear instructions. The team also described what to expect, and it was very reassuring for me as a first timer. The environment is clean, professionally setup, and comfortable. We definitely come back with my other cat!

Fantastic experience for both owner & cat! Kah Yong & Quincy were very friendly, gave lots of good advice on cat grooming & shower. Can see their love for every cat that came in, and also their experience (& patience) from the way they handled each cat based on it's temperament & responses. My cat emerged from the session totally relaxed & happy! Plus: Cosy atmosphere allows owner to hang around, & observe entire process. Recommended!!

It's our first time with Nekomori and it was a great experience for us! Truffles had a Mori signature with artisans Quincy and Kah Yong, and they made sure to note down basic details about our cat before starting. The artisans were really patient in ensuring Truffles was groomed even though she is really skittish and can get bitey at times. Hoping our cat will come to really enjoy her grooming sessions with them in future!

Brought Boketto & Kenji here for the first time. We were greeted by Quincy & Kah Yong who are both so friendly and gentle with the cats. Appointment was easily booked online with prompt confirmation and reminders sent. The salon has large glass panels which allows owners to watch the grooming process if they wish to. Very pleased with the services - very detailed in every aspect & care was taken throughout the grooming process. Will definitely come back here again for their services. Thank you so much, Quincy & Kah Yong!

Is very clean, I love that it is a cats only salon. There are seats available so I could observe my cat while they are having their grooming. My cat, Yuki, really enjoyed his spa session. The groomer took really good care of him, and Yuki licked them in return 🙂

First time at Nekomori Cat Salon. My Kiki has always been skittish about leaving the house and she was terribly scared and was shivering before her session. I did not have much hope of her being able to go through the entire package. I was very surprised when Nekomori msgd me to say that Kiki would be ready in about 30 min time. Was even more pleased when they told me they even managed to brush her teeth. Now my kitty is clean with short nails and clean teeth. To top it off, the price was reasonable too. Im a happy Meowmi. 😀 Will definitely make another visit to the salon again.

I recommend Nekomori Cat Salon! Brought my ragdoll Tobi there for the first time and while my cat's temperment is generally fearful around strangers, the artisans did a great job in handling him while cleaning and grooming him. Do be prepared to wait up to 4.5 hours on a busy weekend (we were originally told that it would like 2.5 to 3 hours) but it wasn't a huge deal to us as we dropped Tobi off and went somewhere else to while away the time. Prices are also transparent and the artisan will go through the services that you want for your kitty before actually beginning the process. Hope you guys do well and can open a salon in the West. :p

I chanced upon Nekomori instagram for cat grooming and booked a slot last week for my cat, Miya. Brought Miya for Mori signature grooming today at Nekomori Cat Salon. Nice and cosy environment for cats. The groomers are friendly and patient. I am impressed how the groomers handled my cat really gently and professionally. Even though Miya was a little timid and feisty at the start of the session, the groomers ensured that she remained calm till the end (unlike her previous grooming experiences with other places). Thank you so much Nekomori! Miya looks fresh and neat now. Will surely come again. Highly recommended ! 👍🏻
