I used to slip my dog some benadryl before taking him to the vet It made him more relaxed. My vet said he could have 1mg for every 1 pound... he had 3 tablets because he weighted 75 pounds. Call your vet and ask if you can give your cat benadryl so you can groom her.

I'm not sure what the details of grooming a cat are... but maybe you could just slip in a single brush stroke in between the petting, sneak in a wipe of a bathing cloth as she passes by. She will soon realize those things do not hurt her. Best of luck to your lucky cat!

You can try wrapping a towel tightly over her head and leave an opening for her nose. She wont be able to see and wont freak out as much. This worked for me, but I'm not sure if it will help.

Hold her/him by the scruff with your hand. Tightly but don't dig your fingernails in him. Make sure that he is on the ground when you do this. This naturally calms them because when they are kittens their mothers hold them by the scruff.

You may never be able to groom her... considering how bad her life was before you stepped up to be her hero. If she has a kitty door you could always stick those pet wipe cloths on it... so each time she goes in and out she gets a little cleaner.
