Cats do not groom themselves. They lick. Grooming and licking are very different things.
The only thing you should really be concerned about when exploring this question of why do cats groom each other is hairballs. When cats groom themselves the hairs sometimes get left behind in the papillae and then get swallowed. Later on the hair balls get chucked up.
This pet grooming business treats your cats like they would their own. They have a pet hotel where they do their cat washing and sitting. They also transport your pets as requested.

Cats typically take care of daily grooming by themselves. If you’ve ever seen a cat lying in the sun grooming itself, it can be quite calming to observe the meticulous routine. Cats instinctively groom themselves to banish any odors that may be noticed by other animals, especially predators. Cats are also able to maintain a healthy-looking coat by daily grooming and distributing natural oils to keep their coats clean and shiny.The Lion Cut leaves the fur on the body about 1/4 inch with the head and legs a little longer and a "Poof" on the end of the tail. Our professional cat groomers can customize it with a long, full, lion-like mane or trim the head down a little shorter to blend it in. Lion Cuts can be done on cats of all coat lengths. The clip generally lasts two to three months and it includes a bath and nail trim. Get on our maintenance program and get an additional 10% off the price! $89* The Kitten Clip takes the fur down to about the length of a regular short haired cat. It's a super cute, easy-to-maintain style so named because it makes them look years younger. Kitten Clips are only available on long to medium haired cats and last a month or two. Includes the bath and nail trim. Ask about our maintenance discount. $69*Grooming your cat is a great way to reduce shedding and prevent your cat from becoming matted. Clips are also a great way to keep your long or medium haired cats cool in the summer though they can be done year round due to our fantastic weather. We offer two kinds : the Lion Cut and the Kitten Clip. As cats get older, many of them don't groom themselves as well as they used to. Let our professional cat groomers take over and freshen up your smelly cat!Most kitties hate to travel. A short trip in a crate can stress out your cat and make grooming a nightmare. It may take days to completely recover. And, the cat’s going to take a while too!
