I don't normally review products, but I had to share this one with my fellow cat-lovers.
As you know, I have three lovely, short-haired cats. But one of them....
I've tried all of Mopar's old grooming tools on her. The wide tooth comb, the mat cutter... she hates them all. I've tried just brushing her on a regular basis, but the matts have gotten so bad, she won't even let me use the regular slicker brush on her.
So, I did a little research and came across the Furminator.
I knew I wasn't going to get to try it on Peno right away, given how wary she's become of brushing. So I grabbed Rocky. He tolerates it for a while, and next to Peno, he's the worst for loose hair.
Well... Rocky thought it was just fantastic. He got a full 20 minutes of Furmination (that's about 10 minutes longer than we get with the slicker brush....) and while I still wasn't allowed to use it on his belly...
Next up was Tux. Tux LOVES to be brushed (he use to hate it when I first got him, put persistence on my part changed his tune.) Tux got about 10 minutes. Because of the diabetes, he has lots of little blemishes on his skin. I think the Furminator irritates it little because it gets right down to the skin. He was sure to tell me when he'd had enough.
Then it was time for Peno. I had to coax her over with treats. Her Furminating lasted about 2 minutes. And I had to hold her the whole time. No pictures of her with her pile, I'm afraid. I decided it was better to let her go than traumatize her further that night.
There's a visible difference in the look of Rocky's coat
I'm still not sure $60 is a fair price... but it definitely does the job.... and bit by bit... we are going to get Peno Furminated too...
