When we were contacted by ShedMonster to do a product review for them, I was interested because I know people are always looking for a cat shedding solution.
This cat deshedding tool is high quality. In fact, Caymus was my product tester on the ShedMonster and my dad was really impressed with the quality of the tool.
Everyone could use a little cat grooming help, and you can get it with the ShedMonster. I have used the Furminator on another Ragdoll cat that I was cat sitting once and didn’t like how it pulled out the silky layer of fur. I am not sure what that hair is called, but it’s the hair that gives your cat’s coat a sheen. I was actually scared to use this tool because I love Caymus’ coat and didn’t want him to loose his beautiful shine. He has the best coat in the world, the WORLD. The feel of it is amazing. And both my mom and dad commented on how great his coat looked afterwards. So it didn’t pull and damage his healthy hair – just removed his deeper hair.
If anyone reading this review knows what I am talking about as far as that top layer of fur with the “pretty” hairs and knows what it is called, please leave a comment or email me and let me know.
I did try the Shedmonster on Charlie monster and on Trigg, but they really dislike being brushed – no matter what the deshedding tool is, brushes aren’t their thing. Of course, Rags, Caymus and Murphy all loved being brushed, so it’s weird to have cats that don’t enjoy it. From my experience with them, I have learned to start brushing kittens at a young age, so they get used to it. I am sure I could get them used to it, if I did it daily. So the Shedmonster did it’s job with them, but it wasn’t as pleasant because Charlie and Trigg don’t like being brushed. This is not a reflection on the Shedmonster though, more on Charlie and Trigg.
As a result, I did the video and most of my testing on Caymus:
Here’s the uber cheesy As Seen On TV Video, but as always those videos show you how cool it is!
You can buy the ShedMonster for $19.99 plus processing and handling of $7.99, so really the total cost is $27.98.
Since my cats, nor my mom’s cats have mats, I couldn’t test it as far as grooming matted cat fur is concerned.
Overall, I like the Shedmonster very much. My dad liked it so much that he asked to keep it for his bathroom, where he gives Caymus his morning brushings.
