If you’re not familiar with the FurZapper line of products, they are pet care products geared towards the cleanup of pet fur. There’s a gel item that can be thrown in the laundry to remove pet fur during washing and this glove pet owners can wear to help remove shed fur from their pet’s coat. It’s also good for cleaning up things like your car’s upholstery.
The FurZapper glove is a one size fits all that fits loosely like a gardening glove or kitchen oven mitt. It’s made of silicon rubber and has small “spikes” of rubber for gathering fur. It’s a little “sticky” to the touch by design. The basic idea is that you put it on and then pet your cat or dog like you normally would, removing fur in the process. The fur sticks to the glove and you pull it off to dispose of it.
This isn’t a new concept, of course. We’ve tried a few variations of this idea in our house with our cat Pocky. Most of them worked alright, but they were either a bit abrasive to the cat or were difficult to pull the hair out of afterwards. Sometimes both. The FurZapper glove has neither of these problems.
In fact, Pocky loves this thing. She stays in one place, purrs, and otherwise shows that she clearly enjoys the process of being pet and groomed with this glove. Which makes it easier to use and better for everyone involved.
The glove has other uses too, though. I’ve tried it in the car on the seats and it removes fur pretty well there. It’s also good on clothing, especially when using the edges of the gloves (instead of the “spiked” palm). And cleaning the glove is easy. Pull the fur off and dispose of it and then rinse the glove to get rid of the small amounts that stay stuck. It’s water proof and dries quickly.
This is a pretty great pet grooming device and I highly recommend it. You can find FurZapper products on Amazon here.
