My kitty bros, Wolfie (the 19-year-old brown very short haired tabbie) and Wiggy (the 18-year-old orange Maine Coon mix) are indoor kitties, but that doesn't make them immune to all the stuff Gracie and I bring in.
There are many days that my older, lower hanging, long haired kitty bro, Wiggy, gets all kinds of stuff caught in his belly. Mum needs to comb him out pretty regularly, even more than me and Gracie, because he can get some pretty nasty mats in that long fur of his if not kept up.
There are those occasions that Mum 'missed a spot.' And she needs to de-tangle a mat on Wiggy. He's pretty darn good about it, rolling over and exposing his belly and letting Mum work at the mat.
What Mum has found that works best in making mat de-tangling during grooming sessions the easiest and least stressful for Wiggy is using the FURminator® deShedding Tool. Yep, that's right!
And then while she's there, she works on the rest of Wiggy to get all the loose fur, dirt and other stuff Wiggy picks up, so he doesn't have to ingest it while grooming and cough up those occasional hairballs that are seemingly very interesting to us dogs. (If you have dog, you know what I mean, right?!?
So why do we like the FURminator deShedding Tool?
- It's really easy to use, just like a comb or brush.
- It helps reduce the fur that likes to fly off the kitties as they jump up on Mum's desk getting in her mouth, in her computer and in her coffee. They say it reduces shedding by 90%.
- And, just like for us dogs, getting all that extra 'blow coat' type of unneeded fur off really makes a pet feel lots more comfortable.
Not only is the FURminator deShedding Tool the perfect tool in honor of Hairball Awareness Day (April 25th) for the kitties and a great tool to help us pups with 'blow coat' season, it's the perfect tool to keep around all year long and use daily, weekly or monthly to keep that extra unneeded fur at bay.
