Pictures of Ragdoll Cats in Laundry Baskets
Originally published on Sep 7, 2011
The wonders of Facebook has helped me understand the love Ragdoll cats (and any cat for that matter) have for laundry baskets.
Since I moved into my house 6 ye…
The other day when I was scrolling through Instagram, I saw a sweet little cat night light on someone’s post. So I went to Amazon to search for fun cat night lights. Here are some that I found:

EZ-Groomer Cat Shedding Comb
I was introduced to the EZ-Groomer cat comb by a Floppycats’ reader, Teresa. She wrote: “Are you familiar with the EZ Groomer Comb? Couldn’t remember if you’ve reviewed that or not. Got one for Illaria because she is shedding bad (and eating a ton of it too) despite me combing her every day. It came today right after I brushed her with her regular comb and I got a whole bunch of hair out of her that had no idea was still there. Illaria liked it so much she fell over and wanted me to do her other side!”
Based on Teresa’s recommendation, I reached out to the manufacturer to see if they would send us one to review. Lucky for us – they obliged and sent us 3 of their pet grooming combs – 2 7-teeth combs and 1 5-tooth comb.
The EZ-GROOMER pet grooming comb uses a unique tooth design which gathers undercoat fur in a much more efficient manner than conventional grooming tools.
EZ-Groomer says that the 7-tooth grooming comb works very well on short and long-haired cats, and dogs with short to medium-length coats. So that’s the one I used primarily in our unboxing and final review videos that are posted below.
EZ-Groomer vs. Furminator
Fur flying everywhere
Running the comb parallel to the body and not at an angle to the body – so that the teeth don’t scratch the cat’s fur.
They offer a full, money-back guarantee on both styles of the EZ-GROOMER.
Origin of the Design
The owner and creator of the Ez-Groomer, Ken Ticehurst, came up with the design while fishing near Whistler BC – in the pools of water where he was fishing, he saw the jaw pjaw bones of chum salmon that had spawned four or five months earlier. He picked up their teeth and took them home. Later on, he decided to try and scratch his cat’s back with one of the teeth. So while holding a salmon tooth, he dragged the tooth through his coat to saw how much it picked up. So he set out to make a pet shedding comb that included the design of the teeth. Such a design is a classic example of ‘biomimetics’ —nature as a model for structures and tools.

Amy was out of the country over the New Year, so I visited Ash and Addie a few times. Ash and I have a routine where I give him a pinch of catnip on his cardboard cat scratcher when I visit….usually when I visit by myself and Amy is out of town. Several weeks ago, I came to visit Amy, not the cats, per say – and after I had been there for 15 minutes, we heard something fall in the living room. Amy and I both looked at each other wondering what it was – went into the living room and there Ash was sitting by the tub of catnip, next to the scratcher. In other words, he was trying to tell me he’d been waiting for his pinch of catnip. HA! Smart cat. So now, I definitely have to do it when I go over – and this was one of the times – but we were in the basement (I had scooped the litterbox and started a load of laundry).
Here they are with a tub of organic Yeowww! Catnip. You can buy it on Amazon for $8.65.
