Soft, but Too Soft
on August 17, 2008
This is nice and soft, which my vet says will keep people from hurting their cat if they aren't careful enough when they brush. Also, once you have some hair on it, it does pick up the hair well, I guess because it has a slightly sticky feel to it (like static cling).
However, I have a hard time holding it because of its thickness in width - the design is cute but awkward for me personally to hold. Also, when you first start out, and there is no hair at all on it, the hair tends to fly off it and not stick because the "fingers" of the brush have a lot of space between them.
Also, you have to press way too hard on a cat to get anywhere near the bottom of the fur. The brush "fingers" have no rigidity and don't get down to the bottom of the fur, so my cats still shed a lot. So, I started using the Zoom Groom for quick top-layer brushing, but I had to get a different, more rigid brush to use also. The Zoom Groom, I think, would be good for daily grooming or for use when you just want to basically "pet" your cat.
