It's excellent. I have removed handfuls of fur and the cat looks neater and shinier. On top of the the cat loves being groomed and comes back for more. Grooming once a week keeps him looking good.

I tried one of those 'glove type' brushes but very little hair came away, then I decided to give this Zoom Goom a go.
Wow... despite not knowing me very well the cat lay on the floor purring contentedly whilst I brushed her with this. Even letting me go against the direction of growth which really got the loose hair from underneath. I was even privileged enough to brush her belly!
After only a few minutes there was a huge pile of fluff that I'd collected out of the brush and inevitably there was loads floating around in the air. My hands, clothes and face were soon covered in fur but I'd rather that than it ending up inside my cat and causing hairballs.
For the price, this simple brush is highly effective and a real bargain.
I tried getting him used to a gentle brushing since he was a young boy, but it always turned into a game of rough housing, I would always stop as soon as he lost self control so he wouldn't think it was a game, but failed in the end. It got to the point where he'd get excited and frisky when he saw me get the comb. So in the end I just gave up. I had a cheapo plastic comb because I thought it was a waste to invest in proper combs and brushes, and I'd occasionally run it through gently, down his back and on either side, sometimes the tail, but basically I am not to comb/brush anywhere else (his rules, not mine *eye roll*)
The zoom groom has basic instructions that say to brush in a circular motion. It is very soft despite how spiky it looks, which is good because cats have delicate skin. My cat enjoyed it, like a massage, it was able to loosen up the fur in his undercoat, not much actually came off with the zoom groom, but I was then able to gently comb through the loosened fur and I got a decent amount of loose hairs out using the finer comb. What you see in the picture came from his sides and back using the fine comb. Although I still used the comb, the zoom groom help detangle and loosen things up. He found it very relaxing, purring and making the cutest sounds, so over all I am pleased with the product. He did try chewing the spikes, so I will have to hide it when not in use from the brat. But even if it doesn't remove much fur, I still recommend it because you can use it to massage and bond with your cat/kitten.
Previous cat relished zoom grooming, demanding nightly attention, at 10pm, with lights out to follow!
The Current Cat, coaxed inside from sleeping rough under hedges, is wary of human touch. I looked for a zoom groom but couldn't find one locally, so we began brushing her with a wire detangler to get her used to handling, while I found zoom groom online. While she now asks to be brushed both morning and evening, she was affronted when we introduced the zoom groom. She is not good with novelty so I will wait a while and try again.
I recommend the zoom groom to any cat owner, it will help get more fur and fluff into the bin than onto your person.
He really enjoys being groomed by this tool because it doesn't pull on tangled hair (which he hates) and presumably because of the the soft massaging tips.
This tool is very effective at gently pulling out loose hair and debris without pulling on the fur. That helps slow down the formation of larger mats.
This tool won't remove knots, though. You'll need some sort of cutting tool for this. I usually cut large mats of fur into small strips parallel to the fur with small snub-nosed scissors. This makes it much easier for him to groom the mats out himself. Cutting the mats out entirely ends up creating patches of shorter fur which he also hates.
I have a mild reservation. I am more used to the furminator which collects the fur as it goes and I think may remove more hair more effectively from the coat because the day after I used the zoom groom on the cat I found he had left me a giant hairball, something that does not happen at all when I use the furminator. On the other hand he doesn't like the furminator as much and it is no use at all for getting hair off sofas, carpets, clothing etc. So I think there is room for both in your grooming arsenal: furminator for primary hair removal and hair ball prevention, zoom groom for a enjoyable polish and bonding session and to clean parts that other grooming tools cannot clean. :-) I didn't try running the flatter side of the zoom groom over the cat though, maybe I missed a trick there.
He has taken to it very well (my cat not the vet).
It has very soft large rubber bristles that gentley work out loose fur without causing undue discomfort.
You can also make soft circular motions with it which give a massage, which my cat is definitely quite fond of around the back of his head and on his neck and shoulders!
It is a good thing.
After a bit of research I realised that she's likely a good part British Shorthair since her fur is extremely dense (though obviously short). None of my cat-owning friends had ever seen a short-haired cat that sheds as much as this adorable little furball does. I was suspicious of the Furminator, which is expensive and seems to be less well tolerated by kitties, and I didn't think my cat would go for it in any case since she can be pretty fussy about being groomed. The softer rubber of the Zoom Groom appealed to me - as did the price tag.
Well I got it three days ago and it's been amazing. I've removed more hair with it in one session (as another reviewer on here says, about two golf ball sized clumps every time I use it) than I ever did with the flea comb. I mostly use it running back and forth along her spine and sides, as the circular motion seems to make her less happy. I find it's helpful to be slower and more gentle when brushing the hair against the growth (from tail to head, for example). It's a good size and weight in the hand, and it's easy to vary the amount of pressure you're using if your cat is like mine and sometimes wants a good heavy brushing and other times will flinch at anything but the lightest touch.
Other reviewers have mentioned that the fur doesn't all stick to the Zoom Groom itself and some of it flies about a bit - that's true. I think the best way to go about this is to brush your cat on a flat surface like a desk, table or bed. While you're brushing the cat, stop every few strokes to remove the fur from the Zoom Groom's teeth. Once your cat has been brushed (or has run away when she's had enough!), run the Zoom Groom lightly over the table or bed to pick up the loose hairs. This also works on your clothes and gets a good 75-80% of the fur off. Follow that up with a lint roller (for clothes and/or bed) or a duster (for a desk or table) and you'll find you've virtually eliminated the excess fur.
In sum: I love this thing and wish I had bought it last year! Grooming really is important to your cat's health, and your own during shedding season, so if you're on the fence don't hesitate on this one.
I didn't hold out much hope for the zoom groom but read great reviews so I thought I'd try it out as a last ditch attempt. I let the cat sniff it at first and then gently started to brush her. Nothing happened. I carried on bracing myself for her to attack it, but to my absolute shock she started purring! Still can't believe it.
It gets a decent amount of hair out, but I don't have much to compare to seeing as it's the only brush my cat's ever tolerated. Definitely worth a try, especially at this price.
This brush sits nicely in the palm of my hand and unlike other brushes i have purchased in the past there isn't one single sharp metal bit that could dig in or snag on her fur.
This brush does pick up the fur very quickly. [which is really good as i never get long to brush her before she gets a little hissy] The fur does tend to fly around a bit but mostly it does gather in the prongs of the brush.
In comparison to other pet brushes this really is very soft and doesn't drag or rip through their fur.
So far this is working well, a quick brush for a few minutes a couple of times a week is what im able to get away with.
All in all yes i would recommend this for anyone with a temperamental kitty who does not like being groomed at all .
I think whether you find this useful very much depends on your cat. I have one who hates it and drops to the floor in fear or it while the other sits next to him and begs for you to brush her instead.
I agree with the other reviews about it leaving the hair on the cat. A vast amound collected in the groomer but there was ALOT left on the cat, me, the floor and in the air!! If you can get away with using it outdoors then do, saves on the hoovering.
Cheap and does the job, albeit a messy one.
