If you have a cat — especially a long-haired beast — you know that booking a groomer is about as hard as picking your kid's preschool. If they'll actually accept your monster, it's going to be expensive. Which makes Hollywood Pets a godsend. For just $35, your cat can get a great lion cut, complete with fuzzy boots and the perfect tail puff. Trust me, both mammal and man love the look: They feel cool and slick, and you can cut back on sweeping. Many other businesses hold on to your cat for as much as an entire day, popping them in and out of a holding cage in deference to canine customers. But Hollywood Pets will shave your kitty in about an hour, just long enough to run an errand or grab a quick bite in Thai Town. (And yes, Hollywood Pets shares a parking lot with Jumbo's Clown Room — hold your jokes.)
