Grooming Aids

The keys to how I stay so handsome...



I'd like to tell you about the grooming tools that my Wresslin Buddy uses on me to help keep me clean and shiny.

The first thing we use is this little comb:A combing session typically ends with a gobs of hair that look like Brillo pads. You wouldn't think that I have that much hair to lose, but it comes from somewhere.

After the comb we use this brush:
It's especially useful for getting my black stripe that goes from my head to my tail. I can't reach that part very well and having a grooming assistant aids in keeping it nice looking.

At the end of our grooming session we use this motorized hair removal tool:

I know efurryone in the Cat Blogosphere is thinking, "Willie, that's a vacuum, cat's don't get vacuumed", I say to you "don't mock it until you try it". It's actually quite relaxing, it sucks up all of that extra loose hair that is on me after the brushing and combing so it doesn't get sucked up into the computer vents. Also, it prevents hairballs, I've never coughed one up yet. The little Shark Vac that we have is not really loud (although it is not silent like the video shows, our camera's sound recorder mysteriously stopped working) and it feels kind of cool on my skin. As you can see here, it is very enjoyable, so give it a try with your peepul today!

Willie, thanks for sharing your grooming tips. We knew that there had to be a reason you look so darn cute all the time!

Being beautiful (or handsome in your case) is a lot of work.

We like our furminator, and we don't think we would consent to be vacuumed. We are glad you like it tho.
