Pros: Most cats seem to adore it

Cons: Some cats a bit lukewarm on it

Most of the cats previously and currently in my life have started purring at the site of this strange thing, after learning its wonders.  The person who first gave me one told me something her sister said, after she gave one of these brushes to the sister.

 

The sister said "Hey!  You melted my cat."  (A compliment!)  I've purchased these for myself and as gifts.

Pros: Kitten adores it, it's more of a massage for the cat than a brushing, removes huge amounts of loose fur

Cons: Fur will fly lol

I bought this as a desperate act to reduce the amount of fur my kitten is leaving all over the house due to shedding. She has between a short and medium coat of pretty fine fur. 

Usually Olivia would prefer to eat the brush rather than allow me to actually brush her but she absolutely loves this thing. Brushing with this is more of a game to her as I'll brush until she's bored, let her wander, and call her back over. More often than not she flops on her side and just purrs. 

I've removed two huge clumps of fur over the past couple days and will most likely brush her everyday during shedding, once a week other times, mostly because she loves it so much.

 

Tip: Wet the bristles a little and the fur will stick to the brush better (I use a little spray bottle).

Pros: Like a kitty massage. Gets some loose fur off of a short hair cat. Good for kitty bellies.

Cons: would not work on a long-haired cat.

I purchased this brush specifically for the short-haired cats in the family and they really love it. One cat nearly falls asleep while I brush him. He even lets me brush his belly with it.  The nubs are large and flexible and really do seem more about feeling good rather than really brushing.  When I pick up the brush, the cats try to act casual as they run over for their turn.

Pros: purple (hey it's my favorite color!); soft, inexpensive, works okay

Cons: spreads hair when used; my cat doesn't like it; only so-so a hair removal

For the price it is okay, but I have used better ones, and my cat isn't a fan of it at all.

Pros: most hair sticks to brush, and you just have to bang the brush down to get it out,it's also very massaging for the cat

Cons: hair will fly about when it doesn't stick to brush

Generally a good brush and my cat loves it. i guess she finds it massaging

only problem is to make sure you brush your cat outside as hair gets everywhere

Pros: Cat likes it, does some work

Cons: fur flies everywhere, loose fur on cat's tail after brushing

I bought this honestly because it is cheap. It's not a total waste of money because it still does it's job of picking up some fur but it's not like those big balls of fur I see people pick up with their furminator. Granted that might be the first time they're brushing their cat in forever, but still. 

When the brush is dry, fur flies everywhere. So I suggest you to do the brushing in the bathroom and where something you don't care about. When the brush is wet, because the material of the brush is silicone the fur sticks to it better than if it is dry. It's similar to those "hacks" that tell you to remove fur from a couch with a rubber glove or a squeegee. But even  after I have wetted the brush, fur still ends up on her butt (I brush from head to butt). 

But my cat does love being brushed with this, so I think I'll keep it just for her. :catguy:

Pros: removes a significant amount of dead undercoat, massages, can be used to work shampoo deep into the undercoat during a bath, DIRT CHEAP!

Cons: once the nubs wear down it's not as effective

I used this on my domestic short hair kitty and it worked wonders! it pulled up a significant amount of her dead undercoat the first time I used it.  When used in conjunction with the Furminator, your kitty will be left with a soft, silky coat.  I recommend using it at least once a week to cut down on hairballs :)

Pros: easy to use, comfortable for person and cat

Cons: Not as efficient as sticker brush, picks up a lot of grease

I got this tool many years ago. I haven't used it a great deal, as I find other brushes quicker and more effective. However, I did try it on Cali - a resolute brush hater. He was a British Cream Shorthair with an incredibly thick double coat. He matted regularly and badly, often needing chunks of fur cutting out. After he got ill, grooming became much more important as he was less inclined to groom himself. I got out the ZoomGroom one day, and he loved it! I was so relieved and happy to find a way to groom him that didn't stress him out. Ok, it isn't so good at getting the undercoat out, and it's useless where matts have begun to form, but for keeping a shorthair happy and comfortable it's great. Very useful in the shedding season. The only big downside is that it needs regular washing in soapy water, and needs plenty of scrubbing to get all the grease off.

Pros: cheap, works perfect. no more hairball

Cons: when it got dirt on, hard to clean.

 I love it I love it I love it. I have tried all kind of brushes or combs. Kong is the best one ever. It can get all the deep hair from the bottom. No more hairball. My cat is a short hair. I only brush one or two times a week. It works perfect.

Pros: More gentle than slicker brushes, massages, easy to clean. Good for short-hair cats.

Cons: Generates static, hair floats all over and sticks to surfaces. Probably not very effective with long-haired cats.

I have used a Zoom Groom on my short-haired dog for years and it works great for him. I usually do it outside though because the loosened hair doesn't stay on the brush much. When I got my short-hair cats I bought them their own cat Zoom Groom, which I actually like better than the dog one. The cat version has longer, more pointed, and more flexible nubs. It seems to work better on the dog's fur too so I use it for everyone now.

It is little messy brushing the cat's indoors, especially in winter because the dry air makes for more static. I only brush them right before I am going to vacuum because the fur gets everywhere. I keep a spray bottle nearby to use which helps cut the static a bit, and a bucket to put the hair in. I finish with a quick once over with a slicker brush to catch any hairs left behind. Then a wipe-down with a damp cloth.

One cat loves to get brushed with this and have his nails clipped (for a treat of course), another tolerates it for a short time, and the third kitty needs constant distraction for the grooming session.
