Helloooooo! If you've never read my posts before, let me introduce myself: I'm Chelsea, one of the BuzzFeed Shopping team's resident cat-obsessed editors. And, ~more importantly~, below are my bonded twin babies Salty and Clementine.
(I'm still working on making them internet-famous, but check out more photos and cat products I recommend here.)
They were rescued from Far Rockaway beach in NYC when they were just wee babes and they had quite a rough start, so I will buy literally *anything* if I know it'll help them be healthier or happier. As such, the second I started at BuzzFeed, I jumped on the bandwagon and bought the best-selling gentle grooming brush that I'd seen in a bunch of posts (ty, shopping colleagues!). It's only $7.99, so there was really no question in my mind. 🤷♀️
Before this, I had a normal ol' brush but my cats were equal parts terrified and intrigued by it and they always tried to bite it (??) while I was brushing them. This made grooming 1. A hard task to complete because they were so dang fidgety and 2. Nerve-wracking as I was worried about their itty bitty teeth and gums because those wire bristles were no joke!
That's not even mentioning the fact that it also filled up with fur SO fast (they're mega-shedders), that I had to constantly empty it/hope my cat wouldn't run away in the two seconds I had to turn away from them to do so.
If I don't brush them frequently, my home *will* turn into the Wild West but with tumbleweeds of airborne fur caught up in the vortex of our window AC units. Just see below for how much fur I'm dealing with:
The biggest benefit of this deshedding/grooming glove, though, is that I can just pretend I'm going in for a normal petting session and they really enjoy it! (Look at that kicked-up leg.)
That's because the glove has 225 soft silicone tips that not only remove fur and dirt, but give your pet a lil' massage.
