We could not bathe, or even comb, one of our cats - not without tears or blood!
But the vet said that he just shuts down completely until they are done grooming him.
And he doesn't stay traumatized for very long.

Wow....all that for only $10. I'm impressed. I think Charlie will probably have a regular hairdo appointment every month or so now!!! I'm glad it went so well and he probably does feel much better. Glad you didn't get shredded in the process - I know firsthand how much that hurts!!!

He probably will. I think the potty patch could have been a little shorter. He did so well!! I have already been shredded!

The groomer and vet cut his claws much shorter than I ever would. I am always so afraid I will cut them too short, but from what they do, I am never near as close to doing that as I think I am!

But if I use a tool like the Furminator instead of the ZG, I always get the feeling that if I keep doing it it will eventually make the cat bald.
I have a Zoom Groom--none of our cats like it.

I don't think Charlie would let me go near him with the zoom groom. He does not like to be brushed at all. Kitty Katty loves to be groomed and he is the one with short hair! Silly kitties!

My long-haired boy LOVES the Zoom Groom... he sits up on his haunces and begs for it!!

He also likes brushing with a soft wire brush I have... but I need a "denser" one I think to really
get some of his areas -- and if there were another person here I would dearly love to give him
a butt trim with scissors or a quiet clipplers -- but I'd need 4 hands! He does at least not put up too much of a fight when I go after him with toilet paper to clean up after a fresh "loose" deposit!

Any specific brand name/pet store recommendations on a brush to use after the Zoom Groom?

Many thanks! This is my former stray who used to live in the parking lot....he's been inside for 2.5 years now and I like to think he knows he has a very good life now! He's FIV+ and also "early megacolon" so
I give him Miralax in wet food 2x a day and also a Dulcolax tablet (per nice young vet) and we haven't had to go back for an enema there since last October! (A job best left to the professionals for sure!!) But occasionally the poop is a little looser and gets on said butt fur.

Glad that he did okay!

Just for general info, that's also called a "sanitary cut," just so you know another name for the procedure.

I have a fluffy kitty, too! She gets a daily brushing and it's about time that either I or the groomer do a little trimming.
