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:
