    Furminator® Pet De-Shedding Tool

    Our Furminator Pet De-Shedding Tool gets pet hair before it gets everywhere else.

    It quickly and easily removes the loose, dead undercoat in all shedding, long- and short-haired dogs and cats, without damaging the topcoat.

    Not only does it reduce shedding up to 90%, it's guaranteed to eliminate excess pet hair better than any brush, comb, or rake.

    Promotes a healthier, shinier topcoat by bringing out the pet's natural oils.



I dunno... for $49 you'd think it would vibrate or do something besides just sit in your hand.

I'm stunned. Got my (cat's) Furminator yesterday and it actually works. Really, really well. In one five-minute session it pulled out enough loose hair to make one and a half cats, easy. I'm anticipating that this will be an enormous help in hair-ball prevention, greatly reducing feline down time due to fur-clogged interior pipes.

One thing, though. She likes this thing, because she loves being brushed. And with my eagerness to de-fuzz, she has created major havoc, thundering down the hallway every time I make a move, in all-too-successful attempts to herd me into her brushing area. So, half the battle is already won. If you have an animal that doesn't appreciate having tools raked through its coat, this thing is way too costly for an experiment. But if they like it, they'll hold you hostage.

My kitty almost died last spring from complications due to hairball retention, and that was while I was brushing her thrice daily, administering Laxatone nightly, the usual preventatives. And she's not even a longhair. If this thing works, I'll be thrilled. I ordered the medium-sized one at Amazon, somewhat cheaper.

But look at the expression on that dog's face. It looks like a definite warning glare to me. Probably need to make the handles longer. Don't like to piss off a dog. Big nasty teeth. Cats, little pointy teeth. Not good. Hope this thing works. Scared now.
