June’s giveaway is something that you and your pets are going to love! I got to meet representatives from FURminator at the BlogPaws Conference last month and see their products for myself. I knew right away that I needed to give FURminator a try with my cats. Now that I have, I’d like to share my favorite FURminator product with you!
The FURminator products and brand that we know and love today are the result of one very frustrated pet groomer named Angela Porter. After searching high and low, Porter couldn’t find a grooming tool on the market that would help reduce shedding in dogs. Porter and her husband, David, decided that it was time to introduce the world to a brand new grooming tool. After a decade of hard work the Porter’s founded FURminator, Inc. in 2002. Now FURminator, Inc owns a total of 9 patents for their products and sells them online and in stores all throughout the United States.

The FURminator Tool
The FURminator deShedding Tool is a light weight pet grooming tool that can reduce your pet’s shedding up to 90%! It has an ergonomic rubber handle, plastic head, and stainless steel blade. Small teeth on the stainless steel head collects the loose hairs from the pet’s undercoat. The FURminator deShedding Tool works comfortably for your pet and does NOT cut the coat.
Cleaning is quick and easy; the FURejector button at the back of the head of the tool pushes hair out of the teeth in a snap. Should the FURminator deShedding Tool become dirty, all it takes is a little bit of warm water and mild soap to clean it up. A plastic blade cover is supplied to help keep it clean and provide extra protection to the teeth while not in use.
Benefits of the FURminator deShedding Tool
- Up to 90% less hair in your pet’s stomach, on your clothes and furniture, and in the air!
- It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee if you don’t absolutely love it.
- Fewer hairballs without medication! Since cats swallow up to 2/3 of the hair they shed when they groom themselves, reducing the amount of hair they shed can get rid of those icky hairballs.
- Good news for those who suffer from pet-related allergies – the FURminator deShedding Tool can reduce airborne allergens up to 85%!
- Using the FURminator deShedding Tool on your pet stimulates natural oil production in your pet’s skin. This will give your pet a shinny, healthy-looking coat.
My Cinco & Manna’s Opinion of the FURminator deShedding Tool
We received the Large, Short Hair Cat FURminator deShedding Tool (valued at $49.99)to evaluate. I was very unsure about how Cinco and Manna would react because they never liked any of the brushes I had picked up for them before. We gave it a try and the FURminator deShedding Tool had Cinco and Manna at hello. They genuinely love being groomed with it.
Cinco, being the lap cat he is, especially adores the FURminator deShedding Tool. He will rub his cheeks on it and show me right where he wants me to groom him with it. He loves having the areas around his neck and his tail groomed! Manna will roll around and make sure her tummy gets groomed! Both cats will take the time to turn around and lick the FURminator deShedding Tool at some point as we groom them.
The results of using the FURminator deShedding Tool absolutely amazed me. I had heard that the FURminator deShedding Tool removed a lot of loose hair, but I didn’t believe it until I tried it.
Those photos on the website with an animal sitting next to a similarly sized pile of hair are realistic! Just a few swipes all of the way down one of the cats’ backs and the teeth are FULL of hair. I groomed Cinco the other night and removed so much hair that it took both hands to carry the pile to the garbage can and it was heaping over the top of my hands. I’ve learned that I have to have the garbage can near me if I’m going to use the FURminator deShedding Tool. Who knew my cats had this much extra hair?!
The FURminator deShedding Tool is definitely a product that I would recommend to others. Cinco and Manna give it big purrs!
