8 Perfect Care Products for Your Furry Friends
Nowadays, you can certify your pet as your official emotional companion. There is no official registry, though — you’ll just need a special letter from a licensed mental health professional. That’s it. It opens a lot of new possibilities for people who have trouble functioning in our world, which can be a very stressful place.
Without realizing it, our little buddies do so much for us. If you’ve ever wondered whether you’re doing enough for them, you can always start doing more. Here are some perfect care products that will quickly become a part of your daily routine and upgrade it quite a bit.
1. The original FURminator can remove up to 90% of loose hair and help to reduce the hairball problem.
This tool is suitable for small cats with short fur. A non-slip handle makes working with it easy and safe, and a special button releases hair easily.
This is amazing! I have a short-haired cat who, although she is black, molts her gray undercoat everywhere. I got her this, and this is the result after only 20 minutes or so of brushing. She fidgets with the brush and seems to really like it. The only complaint is that her hair doesn’t always come off the brush due to its static cling. — Lady Asprin
2. A multifunctional wellness center that includes a wide variety of brushes and textures was designed to help your cat relax and self-groom.
This device consists of:
- A catnip relaxation spot
- A multipurpose massager for your pet’s head and neck
- An ergonomic base with efficient massage ridges
- A gum stimulator for your pet’s dental hygiene
Set it up in seconds and cats started using it immediately! I have a 2-year-old and an 8-year-old, and they both love it. In fact, they have been squabbling over it. It is well-made and designed by a brand that knows cats!
Even down to it being all washable, you know how grubby things get when cat drool and scent glands are involved. They think of every detail of the product and even design the box to be pretty and usable as a cat toy (you know how cats love the box). All their products just work, and my cats always love them. — Terri Lou
3. As much as you do, your fluffy friend needs a good massage, and this handheld massager with 4 rotating heads is perfect for the job.
It is perfect for targeted massage therapy: it can reduce discomfort in the joints, ease arthritis in the hips, and improve our pet’s mobility. It can also work as a back scratcher that relieves stress and anxiety.
This massages my cat’s head and around her ears. She really loves it!! — Chris R.
4. These efficient eco-friendly silicone gloves will help you reach all the difficult grooming places and can be even used during bath time.
With the help of these gloves, you can gently remove loose hair and dirt. They have an adjustable wristband that allows a perfect fit for any hand size.
My cat hates being brushed with a comb or brush but gets super dirty outside and is shedding BIG TIME, so he really needs grooming. I found these online, and they’ve worked a treat. As you can see, he’s purring and loves it. I’ve found that over time he’s gotten a bit less tolerant, but it’s still really effective. Even only a few strokes with the glove take off tons of loose hair. — Sarah
5. Give your pet an opportunity to get some grooming, even when you’re not around, with this massage brush that you can attach to any corner you like.
It is suitable for both long and short fur. The brush comes with a small pouch of catnip in case you need help attracting the cat. The bristles are made of durable plastic and are easy to clean.
I had an older version, and my cat LOVED it! But it wouldn’t stay on the wall that well at all. Eventually, my husband stepped on it and killed it. I got this version, and it actually stays a lot better than the first. Still not perfect, but better!
This one is a bit softer than the last one. I don’t think he’d like it any softer, to be honest. And my other cat (the Ragdoll) seems to like this one as well. She never touched the last one. But was rubbing on this one the other night. Which...may cause catfights, lol. — NikkiP
6. This kitty-shaped rubber brush is as useful as it is pretty.
With this Zoom Groom brush, you will provide the ultimate massage experience and solve a problem with excessive fur.
Best one yet. I have arthritis, so it wasn’t the best to hold, but actually, I managed it. My long-furred, thick-coated cat allowed me (!) to start her grooming, and the pic shows how much came out instantly. If your cat allows you to groom them, then you’re onto a real winner.
I tried it on my short fur after, and while he does like to be groomed, it didn’t work as well. Didn’t get much fur, and he hated it and ran off. So I’d say this is mainly or better for the longer, thicker coats. Definitely highly recommended — I just wish it had something attached to the back to hold it easier. — tina gray
7. If your furry friend needs to do some shaving, this rechargeable cordless trimmer is a must.
This device is washable and waterproof. It is not noisy, so it will not scare away your pet.
The package includes:
- A clipper
- A USB cable
- A cleaning brush
I have a massive, thick-haired Ragdoll who constantly gets bad matting. This time was particularly bad, and using my usual tools wasn’t cutting it. So I bought this to save cash on getting the groomer out again. I was a bit skeptical that it would work as these knots and mats were like thick wool and knotted right into the skin all over his neck, tummy, armpits, and sides. Very uncomfortable!
I thought it wasn’t working at first, but then my husband took over and shaved the lumps of knotted fur right out. I was scared I’d hurt him, but my husband obviously has more experience with electric razors. Quiet enough and my raggy was calm. I’ll also use this for hygiene cuts on my long-haired cats rather than scissors. — Nina D L Harrison
8. High-quality stainless-steel nail clippers that are safe and easy to use will help you take care of your pets’ paws.
The clippers are comfortable to grip due to rubber-coated handles. A sharp but safe blade will make the procedure safe and fuss-free. They also come in different colors.
Good product. Does what it is supposed to. Trimming my cat’s claws. He does not mind. — Ami
