Cat FAQ

STRIPHAIR GENTLE GROOMER

CAT & SMALL PET CARE

Can the StripHair Gentle Groomer be used on cats and small pets?

Yes! The Gentle Groomer – Sensitive can be used on animals of all sizes. The material was selected with softness in mind for sensitive animals, which makes it perfect for small animals as well. As with any groomer made for larger pets, use only light pressure on cats and small pets.

How will grooming with StripHair reduce unwanted hair and dander in the home?

The material of the StripHair Gentle Groomer is a custom-blend of rubber that was formulated with an extra “grip” factor for removing loose hair, comfortably and effectively.

  • No sharp edges common to many other grooming tools, especially shedding blades which can scratch the skin and cause dander, or bristles that flick dander into the air.
  • Flat edge design distributes natural oils from the skin into the coat hairs, which bind to dust and dander for easy removal during a grooming session.
  • Stimulates blood flow for healthier skin and coat which can reduce hair loss.

What steps do you recommend for reducing excess hair and dander in the home?

  • Groom outdoors whenever possible, and well away from foot traffic areas that could bring the hair back inside the home.
  • While grooming, set a double layer of moistened paper towel beside you to place loose hair once removed during grooming. When finished, double over again to contain the hair and give a final pass over the coat after grooming to pick up any loose dander lying on the coat. Fold the moistened paper towel over one final time and dispose in a trash receptacle.

Note 2: As with using any grooming tool, take notice of your animal’s sensitivity in certain areas. Some areas may require a gentler touch, fewer passes, or there may be an irritation on the skin that needs attention.

Will StripHair remove cat hair on furniture?

Absolutely! But only use the StripHair Gentle Groomer - Sensitive on furniture. The OriginalblackGentle Groomer is made of a different material composition and can leave marks. The red one should not, but it is always a good idea to test on material in an inconspicuous spot.  

With a light touch, apply the Gentle Grooming Edge at a 45-degree angle to dislodge pet hair from blankets and cushions.  It doesn’t need much pressure, and too much can wear down the edge rendering the groomer less effective.  

Stay tuned for a new product specially designed for this purpose!
