Harley Gets FURminated!

No cat wants hairballs

Hi everybuddy! Did you know that Friday is National Hairball Awareness Day? I am a Devon Rex cat with curly fur, and my fur is pretty thin, so I do not shed very much at all. On the other paw, my brother Harley likes to leave his extra fur all over the house. I think this makes Harley an excellent candidate to test out the FURminator for cats. After all, no cat wants hairballs!

Daisy tests the FURminator

Even though I am not getting FURminated myself, I still checked to make sure the tool looks good. I like the pretty purple color! We chose the FURminator for cats with short hair, but there is also one for cats with long hair.

Harley actually enjoyed being groomed with the FURminator!  This photo is proof that the Harley Quinn can settle down (for at least a few minutes.)

Then, he turned back into the Harleymaniac and tried to grab the grooming tool to brush himself! This was very Wrong of him. Lots and lots of loose fur came off Harley. This was very extra-lucky for me, because I got to make a fancy new wig out of it!
All that extra fur makes a great wig

We give the FURminator all four paws up! Maybe now Harley will stop spreading his fur all over the house.

What grooming tool do you like best?

  1. I get brushed with two different brushes. It helps to get my underfurs to come off after the cold winter. It feels very good when the publicist brushes me.

    You look quite cute in your new wig. Like Marie Antoinette Kitty

  2. Edgar LOVES getting FURminated and he always tries to do it himself, too. He especially loves getting his neck done.

    Thanks, Pricilla. I thought of Marie Antoinette, too!

    I am FOR anything that will get Harley to relax for a few minutes! Glad Edgar enjoys it, too : )

  5. We love the Furminator! Mommy also uses the Zoom Groom, and we have a comb that’s used for teasing human hair (is it nice to tease hair–we don’t think so) that gets out tons of underfurs!

    You are right, teasing hair is a little bit mean!

  7. Gemini loves her furminator. Ichiro is not sure about it. I like it okay but am not thrilled. I think you look great with Harley fur on your head. Fortunately we do not have to do that with Gemini. It would be some BIG HAIR with her!

    Hahaha, I would love to see a Gemini wig!

  9. I’m glad Harley enjoyed the furminator and calmed down for a bit! My cats like to be brushed with the furminator; I just need to use it more often. Daisy, you made me laugh with that last picture! You look cute with a wig 🙂

    Oh thanks! I had no idea that Harley’s FURminated fur would be so dark. I kind of wanted a white wig!

  11. Our Harley lookalike Rocky has a furminator too, and it works great. It especially works well for him now that he’s older and can’t groom himself as well. Kitties just need help with their furs sometimes!

    Carol, you’re so right! In Harley’s case, I think he’s too busy playing to pay much attention to his grooming.

  13. I leave fur blips around the house sometimes. My Dad brushes me with a yellow plastic brush. 🙂

  14. I use a pet brush but while Admiral loved brushing I must never have been brushed cause mom really has a time with me. I getting better. She needs a furminator for me if they don’t hurt..

  15. Me has very fine fur too and me does not like to be brushed. Kozmo does not like it much, but me thinks he is starting to like it.
    Me liked your new french Wig!

  16. Oh Daisy we agree that the fuminator is just the bestest. We shed and mum uses it on us but… Winston our pug brother, he needs it the most. He sheds so much! Mum got one and never looked back, she swears by it.

    PS a very cool wig!

    Brushing feels good! I’m glad your Dad gives you brushings.

  18. Daisy the Curly CatApril 24, 2012 at 9:11 am

    Katie, it doesn’t hurt a bit! There is even one made for kitties with long furs.

  19. Daisy the Curly CatApril 24, 2012 at 9:12 am

    Thanks, Nellie! Wigs are fun. Maybe if Harley keeps getting FURminated, I could make a new sweater…

    Thanks, Tika and Kizzy! I did not know puggies shed very much.

  21. We have two FURminators, one for shot-haired cats, one for long-haired cats. They all really liked being brushed with them, and they got out a lot of loose furs and even mats. Pumpkin did make like the Harley Quinn and try to play with the tool himself.

    We give a solid two paws up to the FURminator; it is definitely worth the money.

    We’re glad the FURminator worked well for your kitties, too!

  23. Nice Harley wig, Daisy! Boodie is the one who gets Fulminated here. Maybe I should have my human make a wig of her fur for me!

  24. Gracie and Zoe enjoy being brushed, and the Furminator works especially great on Gracie, with her thick undercoat. YOur Harley wig is lovely, Daisy! 🙂
