Johnson here, with a fun and furry product review.
We received (for free) a Furminator Long Hair deShedding Edge from our pals at
HERE is a link.
Kitties, this grooming tool is fabulous. We have an original Furminator which does a great job at removing loose fur, especially the downy undercoat. This one has a nice new feature; your peep can use the button to push the fur out of the teeth instead of having to
let go of a struggling kitty use two hands to do it--because this tool removes dead fur by the bushel.
Since I have such a long thick winter pelt I was the natural choice to be the test subject for the maiden run of our new Furminator.
At first I was a little bashful about being photographed whilst being Furminated...
...but I got over it.
In no time at all I was soliciting Daddy for MORE!
We took a short break to admire all the fur that came off. (Mommy calls it "lint". She's insane.)
Daddy sorted my fur by color as he removed it. (He's not too mentally stable, either.)
You'll never believe what happened next:
Daddy LINT-ROLLERED me!
Did I mention he's nuts?
unlawfully restrained held me by the handle tail because I really didn't like being lint-rollered.*
A little later Daddy showed me the big ball of fur he culled using the Furminator, and I admit, the size of it freaked me out a little--he only groomed me for about five minutes!
Thanks Daddy, you can keep the fur. I'll grow more and you can Furminate it off me any time!
Kitties, we give the Furminator Long Hair deShedding Edge a resounding Squillion Paws Up.
Almost all of us have had a round of grooming with it and it's been tolerated, if not outright enjoyed. Maui has 5' long armpit fur and he was patient about having it sorted out, which is a first for him. It also worked well on very plush coats, too. Salem and May Ling have extremely dense fur and the Furminator did a wonderful job getting all the loose hairs out. We highly recommend getting one!
We want to thank Chewy.com for sending us such a great grooming tool, it sees a LOT of use--and felines--at our house!
