Tsunami Tests The FURminator Dual Brush For Dogs!
Have you ever woken up and discovered your cat is having a really bad hair day?
If so, you’ll appreciate the precious face that greeted me this morning!
Mom – I need help!
I slept in my water dish and now I can’t do a thing with my hair!
This isn’t the first time that Tsunami and his luscious locks have needed a little makeover magic from Mom. Thanks to my friends at Chewy.com, however, this time I was armed with a little surprise!
Since Tsunami’s current complement of combs and brushes isn’t quite getting the results we desire (my cat sees them and heads for the hills!), I decided to go renegade and add a new product to his grooming arsenal – the FURminator Dual Brush for Dogs!
(Shhh – don’t tell Tsunami about the “dog” part –
Let’s just make that our little secret!)
Since Tsunami is bigger than most small dogs (who this brush is purportedly designed for) – and since I’m not the first feline mama to adapt this brush for kitty use (I’ve seen your posts! you know who you are!) – I figured, why not give this a try?
The FURminator Dual Brush features a pin brush for long-coated pets and a nylon brush that’s good for most coat types!
When I introduced Tsunami to his new brush, he was extremely curious about the FURminator. He took several moments to examine it to make sure it passed muster. Once Tsunami completed his rigorous quality control inspection, we were ready to begin!
First I brushed him using the soft, nylon brush side to smooth his coat and let him acclimate to the brush. Usually, Tsunami will let me brush him a few times before he starts to twist, turn, slap the brush, or bolt, but it turns out that Tsunami absolutely loved the feel of the FURminator Dual Brush against his fur! Every time I stopped to clean out the brush, he turned his head to see why the brush had stopped stroking him!
Then, I began to brush him with the stiff, pin side of the brush, which is designed to work on long hair. I tested the brush beforehand and found that the bristles were stiffer than most of the current brushes that I own, so I was sure that this would send Tsunami bolting for the hills. Imagine my surprise when Tsunami stretched out across the table so that he could fully enjoy his grooming session! I have never seen him so cooperative during grooming time in all the years that I’ve lived with him!
Tsunami was so relaxed that when Magellan came over to see why his brother was getting attention and he was not – choosing to climb over Tsunami in an effort to disturb his brother’s calm – even the presence of the little interloper could not disturb Tsunami’s peace of mind!
As you can see from our experience with the FURminator Dual Brush, Tsunami loved it (even if their marketing folks think it’s for dogs!) The only drawback to the product is the protective plastic cover which, conceptually, is a great idea but – in actuality – did not work at all. We tossed the cover but we kept the brush!
Thanks Chewy.com for allowing us to go renegade and think outside of the box! (They provided us with a complementary brush to review).
