I just got one earlier today after reading about it on another thread yesterday. I might not look like much, but you will be amazed. I brush my short haired cat 3-4 times a week, including just last night before bed. I got back from PetsMart about noon and brushed him. I brushed in on the spare bed in the "cat room" and after the grooming session, he was clean and quite happy. I had a pile of fur the size of my fist compacted next to me, the bed was covered, the floor covered. I had to vaccuum, change clothes and take a shower. I complain (all the time) about pet products costing too much but this is one case in which you are getting a bargin. This thing works.
