Pampered Pals: Bamboo Cat Body Brush

Who likes a smelly cat?! Certainly no one I know! While wrestling a cat into the tub sounds challenging to most kitty owners, there are many fancy gadgets out there to help you get the job done. Holding onto a cat, bottle of shampoo, and brush (all while trying to work the product in with your hands) is no easy feat, so this 2-in-1 product definitely piqued my interest.

The Bamboo Cat Body Brush with Shampoo Applicator ($7.19) takes the need to massage the coat and add the shampoo and combines them with an integrated soap bottle/brush – fill it with kitty's fave shampoo and use soft rubber massage bristles to rub in and let the cleanser penetrate the coat. As an added bonus, the product can also be used dry to collect loose hair, reduce shedding, and release natural oils in the coat. Does this sound like something you'd test out?

True fuzzles, the groomer I worked with would always brush the cats out and do some trimming before we would bathe them. He would never do brushing and the same time as the bath since it can be damaging to the coat. You definally have to brush long hair cats more (which I found a lot of owners do not do or at least not enough) and am not even going to tell you how many cats we would have come in with thick mats.

Also, Persians SHOULD be bathed every two or three months. While short-haired cats are fine without bathing (unless they get into something unsavory), long-hairs usually can't satisfactorily get to their undercoat while grooming in order to stay clean. Not to mention the dreaded "dingleberry issue" that comes with the territory. Hygienic shave, anyone? ;)

chameleon 7, Good point! I can only speak to the grooming of Persians and other long-haired cat breeds, but they do need a very thorough combing before you even think about bathing them. Dead hairs, tangles, and mats all need to be taken care of first, or you will have a royal mess on your hands when it comes time to dry them.

It is a bad idea to brush and wash your animal at the same time. It is also not good to wash a cat it take stuff out of their coat...

My Persian boy actually LOVES taking a bath, so I wouldn't need this. He does, however, dispise the drying part of the routine. I'd be more in the market to find a silent or very quiet dryer.

It does come in a dog version. I have a Kong brush that is very similar without the shampoo bottle attachment. Sadie Grace loves it!

I don't give my cats baths. They are indoor cats and they haven't ever had any odor at all!
