It’s been over a year since JW Pet sent me a box that had a bunch of their stuff to review.  And the JW Grip Soft Cat Comb For Combing was in that box as well as a few other items I haven’t been able to post yet.  So, I am bringing that up to let you know how LONG I have had to review this sucker.

I love it.  Charlie hates it.  Trigg tolerates it.  Caymus and Murphy are indifferent.

Let’s clarify – one thing I messed up on majorly when I got Charlie and Trigg – didn’t brush them.  That’s why it’s one of the things I highly recommend in Floppycats’ ebook, A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home.

Now, we didn’t brush or comb Caymus and Murphy regularly, but since Rags was alive when we got them, I brushed him, so would sometimes brush them.  I also think that a lot of cats come not being bothered by grooming, but my Charlie man did not and I think his feelings towards being groomed by a human are rubbing off on Trigger man.

So knowing that, why would I like this thing?  Well, I think it’s important to know what’s the purpose of a cat comb?

  • Cat combs help to prevent matting and hairball formulation
  • Great for removing dingle berries from the behind area!
  • Much like a comb vs. a brush for human hair – just gives the hair a different look

I also love the fact that I can stick this sucker into the dishwasher – so it’s easy to sanitize – if I use it on Charlie and Trigg and then on Caymus and Murphy (this was especially true this summer because I was worried that if Charlie and Trigg had flea eggs on them, that I would then transfer them to the other cats).

Here are a few videos I took during the review process.  Now remember, Charlie hates it.  So in order to prove that not all cats hates this, I also brushed Caymus and Murphy who I knew wouldn’t mind being brushed.

Video #2 – filmed this one right after the one above – so he was even more pissy pants.

So I put the comb in the dishwasher, washed it, and took it to my parents’ home the next day to try it out on Caymus and Murphy – who weren’t bothered by it:

    This JW Grip Soft Cat Comb looks like a great product with ease of use and comfort compared to the standard wide toothed metal one I have. I really want to try this comb now. Thank you for the review and vids : )

      I’m excited you liked it – Charlie is ridiculous with grooming tools, so I am glad you didn’t get discouraged by Charlie’s behavior…it’s his FIRE element (that I learned about from the acupuncturist) that gets him fired up!!

        He gave you firetude XD
        I commented this on Youtube but I was so relieved to see that Darcy wasn’t the only kitty that tried to eat a bit of the fur one time, and used to bite at it and take his paw and softly pat it down like “no thanks, I’m good”. I had to give him a few strokes every week and so ‘no bite’ and ‘good brush/comb, good kitty’ followed by a treat. He still didn’t want it, I stopped trying but gave him a freeze dried chicken treat yesterday during and after and he tolerated the comb, boy did he need it too. So I will keep doing this and stopping to pet him and treat in between. I wish this comb was a giveaway prize : )
