PETCO Grooming Gloves keep your home cleaner while helping to control shedding.

October 19, 2010 6:14 pm | By Zootoo Editor CynthiaLo

Unlike clunky grooming mitts that are more appropriately sized for large dogs, these form-fitting, breathable, knit gloves allow your hands to negotiate the contours of a cat’s body, couch or other furry surface, with ease. They are textured with rubber dots, designed to help collect loose fur.

First, I tested the gloves on my cat Star who has a medium-length, black, silky coat and four white mitts of her own. She initially treated them with suspicion, but instantly fell for the idea that I was petting, not grooming her. Presumably, she wrote off the strange gloves as yet another one of my misguided fashion statements.

The textured rubber dots served to massage my cat more than grab up all of her loose fur. I then tested the gloves on my most obnoxiously furry cat, the Wookiee, a black Maine coon. His coat is an ultrafine fro, prone to dreading, and infused with bionic powers of cling. I swept the gloves along his dense fluff, creating a collection of frizzy hairs on the glove's palm that stayed firmly affixed to the fabric.

Finally, I tried the gloves on Star's favorite antique upholstered chair. I rubbed the fabric in a circular motion. Fur lifted up nicely and balled up nicely for easy removal. Star was very offended, gave my gloved hand a serious swat and swiftly vacated the chair.

In other words, these gloves may not get every last hair off of your cat, but they sure can get the hair off of a chair and keep fur off of your furniture and carpets.

Pros: Easy to use, effective for cleaning pet hair.

Cons: May not completely eliminate shedding.

My old cat Bob sheds a lot and I thought these looked great. Well, they didn't take off any more hair than what comes off when I petted him. And I thought they were hard to clean off.

Pros: none

Cons: doesn't work

These don't necessarily remove a lot of excess fur, but they are a preventative measure from allowing matting to occur.

Pros: good hand protection when grooming uncooperative cats

Cons: none

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
