Product Review... The FURminator

This product review is based on personal experience and is not sponsored by the company.

I decided to try this product out after the third time Boots the Cat threw up in my bed in the middle of the night.  I know most cats make a great deal of noise when they get rid of hairballs but Boots is rather quiet.  Which means I wake up at two or three in the morning to a cold wet spot by my feet!  

The company claim:    FURminator deShedding Tools can help you reduce the amount of loose hair in your house by up to 90%.  
This would mean less cleanup and for me no middle of the night cold footed wake up.

The Cat Furminator deShedding tool
 The first time I used it on Boot's he only sat still for it for about 2 minutes ... in that time I got this much fur off of him.  He didn't like it at first and after he took a snap at me and ran away I decided to try it out on the dog.

As far as I can tell except for the size there is no difference between the dog and the cat FURminator.  The dog was a lot more patience with the grooming ... of course he is such a mush that as long as he is getting attention he'll let you do just about anything LOL.

My first mistake was starting this process in the house.  Hair was flying everywhere and I ended up with an orange carpet.
We moved outside to finish the Furminator process and ended up with enough fur to create a second dog.  I was very glad there was a breeze that day to help carry off some of the fur from where I was working.

I think there will be lots of birds with orange linings in there nests.

I did manage to finish up Boots the cat later when he came to snuggle up for a nap on my lap.  I haven't seen a hairball since.

All in all the Furminator deShedding tool lives up to is promise.  Though I think I will be getting a larger one to work on the dog with.  He is 70 lbs of shedding wonder and it takes quite a while with the small cat Furminator to get him finished.  I will be waiting till it goes on sale though!
