    I Use This Pet Grooming Glove Almost Every Day And If You Have A Cat Or Dog Who Sheds, I Bet You Will Too

    Yes, it's really that good 🐾

    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.

    Since the glove is so flexible, I can also scratch under their chin, behind their ears, and on their bellies (yes — they're a special breed that enjoys that) just as I normally would. And at the end, I'm left with a ginormous mat of fur that just peels right off the glove without any effort.

    Ofc, I am *far* from the only person gushing over this thing. Cat and dog parents the internet over all seem to love it. Just check out this glowing review:

    Promising review: "I’m going to be honest, I bought these because I saw a clickbait video on Facebook but they actually work! My dog has fur that’s as long as it can be without needing to be groomed. So you can imagine she sheds like wild. My dog loves these because it’s like a little massage for her. Once you have a full glove of fur you just shake your hand once or twice and it all falls off the glove!" —Mariah C.

    And this reviewer who even uses it on their rabbits!

    Promising review: "These gloves are fantastic for grooming bunnies; you don’t have to press hard, just gently glide your gloved hands over their fur, and the undercoat comes off quite easily. Rabbits have very delicate skin, so you don’t want to tear it by using the wrong grooming tool or using the grooming tool incorrectly. We have different breeds of rescue rabbits, and not all fur is the same; these gloves have worked their magic from Flemish Giants to Mini-Rex fur. Some bunnies do not like to be groomed, but I found with these gloves, they help bunny relax and think they’re just getting pets and cuddles. Easy to keep clean, fits my little hands and my husband’s giant hands due to the Velcro around the wrist. Sent a pair home with my friend for her bunnies, and purchased another pair for us. Very inexpensive, plus you get two gloves instead of one, so I feel these are a worthwhile and quality purchase." —dfreeman

    And I'd be remiss not to share fellow BF shopping editor AnaMaria's review if only because...LOOK AT HER PUP'S FACE!

    "My dog is perfect in every way but he has recently started to shed and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. (According to his vet, it’s common for Frenchies to go through more shedding in the fall and spring to make way for a new ~seasonally-appropriate~ coat.) I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean.

    We got Rockie when he was 5 and he’d been riddled with skin issues and allergies, so I was pretty nervous to use anything that could potentially aggravate his conditions. However! Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he….loves this. A lot. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand." —BuzzFeed Shopping Editor AnaMaria Glavan

    If you're not convinced by now, idk what else could swing you — so I'm just gonna stop and suggest you look at all the other review photos of cuties gettin' their groom on.

    TL;DR: get a grooming glove on Amazon for just $7.99 (or a pair for $13.99 if you've got lefties in the fam). I promise — *in a non-legally-binding-way* — that you won't regret it!
