Looks like this may be a repeat question from March ? - previous answer here -

In some states groomers can do that - and some do home visits. In other states this has to be done under the direction of a vet (like by a vet tech). So - a mobile groomer (see categories in the Pets area of Search the List) might handle it.


I would contact your vet and see if they can have a tech stop by (maybe after lunch or on way to work) and pick up your cat (in a carrier - be sure to tell them if you have a suitable carrier for your cat ornot). Might cost an additional $30-50 for the tech's time to pick it up and return it (assuming you are close to vet), but can work if they do that.


There are also mobile vets who come to your home and can do this.


Another alternative, if you have a suitable cat carrier, is to see if a friend or even a taxi driver will take it to the vet, then pick it up again when they call to say it is done and recovered from the sedative. (Almost always requires sedative for cat nail clippings if you do not do it regularly yourself).


Another alternative, though means two trips for you maybe (or an hour or two wait at the vet's) is to (assuming you are disabled but still mobile) put cat in a carrier and take it to / from vet yourself using a taxi (ask for a handicapped accessible one if necessary).


Another alternative if you have a relative or housekeeper or care provider who comes to your home periodically to help out and gets along with cats - see if they can take it and bring it back. Would take careful planning if a paid provider, because would mean two trips in one day for them (to and return) and of course have to match it up to available appointment times.


Another alternative - prearrange payment with vet and approval for the person to represent you at the vet's, then get a pet sitter/walker to take it to vet's for the clipping and return it.


In each of these cases you are probably talking something like maybe $50 in addition to the clipping fee, but provides you with a couple of options, one of which should work for you.


If your disability is such that you cannot get around or make such arrangements yourself, talk to your vet - they might be able to arrange for pickup and redelivery by a pet sitter or a clinic volunteer or such even if they cannot provide the service with their own staff. Or call local ASPCA or pet rescue organization - they might be able to suggest someone who can come and transport the cat for you - again probably $25-50 charge for that transport unless you find a kindly volunteer.
