Recently, the folks at Chewy.com asked us if we'd like to review a new product they now carry - the FURminator - and we said we'd love to.
[Actually mommy and Allie said that - we boyz aren't really that into personal hygiene. But I digress.]
So they sent us links to the FURminator deshedding products they carry and asked us to pick one. We chose the small comb for short hair.
You may have noticed we called them Chewy.com - as opposed to MrChewy.com.
Yep, they've changed their name. But they're the very same company with great customer service.
The FURminator arrived in very short order and Faraday set out to inspect the new package.
To be quite honest, it didn't look like a toy or smell like catnip, so he was a bit unsure what he thought of it, as you can tell by his expression.
You see, although Allie is a short-haired tuxedo girl, we were surprised to discover that she has a thick undercoat.
Thankfully, she loves to be groomed. Which is good, since the best way to manage hairball issues is to not have her ingest all their fur in the first place!
So we unpacked the new FURminator and took it for a test spin.
We did offer Faraday first crack at it - and we got airplane ears, so decided to move on.
|You aren't seriously going to TOUCH me with that thing, are you?|
|Be sure you don't miss a spot, Mother!|
I have to say, this is the most effective grooming tool I've ever used. Ever.
Just take a look:
|Same number of strokes with each tool. No contest!|
|After just a few strokes, the comb is full|
In all, we can't say enough good about this product - we'd been hesitant to purchase this in the past because it is more expensive than generic cat brushes and combs but it simply blows away all the other products we've ever owned, so we say it's well worth a few extra dollars (they retail for $37- $43).
Allie gives it her full endorsement - and we humans do as well!
While technically this doesn't have anything to do with the FURminator, it does have to do with Chewy.com...
Mommy just ran out to buy a replacement bug for our Neko Flies (SOMEkitty trashed it... ALLIE...) she discovered that our local pet store charges more than Chewy.com!
Since this was a kitteh emergency, she did let her pocketbook take one for da boyz THIS time -
but she'll be ordering all future refills online at Chewy.com.
Many thanks to Chewy.com for the FURminator. By the way, we order our food & litter from them, and shipping from Chewy.com is a breeze. There's free shipping on every order $49 and above, and anything less is a flat, reasonable $4.95.
Chewy.com graciously gave the FURminator to us to review, but all opinions are strictly our own.
