I had high hopes for this brush based on all the glowing reviews. From my experience... Well, my cat never liked being brushed anyway and the situation didn't improve with the Zoom Groom. I wasn't bothered by that, though, as I really just wanted something that would get her loose hairs off while still being gentle against her skin. The thing is, the rubbery bristles are so far apart that there's nothing for all the loose hairs to stick to, so they go everywhere. And I am not exaggerating when I say EVERYWHERE. Really, you will spend more time sponging yourself, the cat, and the surrounding area off than you ever will doing the grooming. I chucked this brush after a couple of tries, I'm sorry to say.
