We now have one kitty in the house, 'Mr. Cranky McSassypants,' Morris. Our other cat, Sammy, passed away from a liver issue in April.

Morris is a medium-haired tabby, so he sheds quite a bit, especially now. He's finally losing his 'Winter coat,' and so it's VERY common for me to have orange cat hair on my bed, computer chair, clothes, computer keyboard... EVERYWHERE.

The Furbuddy Pet Grooming Brush kit is a godsend.

Let's look at each item.

DESHEDDING RAKE
This is a metal 'comb,' similar to a rototiller blade. It's designed to remove tangles and matting easily without damaging the fur.

Morris HATED this. We tried it on a snarl he had from accidentally lying in some spilled candle wax and he had a conniption fit while we used it. He meowed like he was in pain and swatted at us while using it. We had better luck removing the wax with a flea comb and a LOT of patience. We also had a calmer cat when using the flea comb method.

SLICKER BRUSH
This brush is designed to remove the dead, loose fur from the coat, making it appear fluffy.

Morris didn't really have an opinion of this. He would let us use it, but he didn't care if we did or not. It did take the majority of the loose fur out of his coat, but even with the 'plunger' to take the fur out of the brush, some of the fur was still stuck in the bristles.

BRISTLE/PIN BRUSH
This is a dual-sided brush. One side is metal pins with 'balls' on the ends and the other side is closely-constructed nylon bristles, designed to redistribute oils to the coat for a healthy shine.

This was Morris' favorite tool of the three. The 'balls' of the pin side seemed to have a 'massage' effect on him, and he especially enjoyed it in his hind quarter area. He would purr loudly when we'd brush his hips/hind end with the pin side.

He also seemed to love the nylon bristle side for a quick brush-out. However, the 'quick brush-out' seemed to turn into a hour-long grooming session, because he would nudge at the brush if you stopped.

The major downfall disabled people are going to have with this set is the handle. It is a 'pushpin' style release button, similar to those found on canes, crutches and walkers. This was difficult for me to operate, and I ended up needing Mama Melissa to change the brush tools for me. The tools DO stay in the handle QUITE securely, but if your disability affects your hands, you will have trouble changing the tools.

This is available from Amazon for $39.77.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Love the tools that come in the set, but I feel this would be more suitable for a very furry mid-size and larger dog or a Maine Coon cat, not a domesticated tabby cat. Also wished the tools were easier to change.
