I have always been a fan of brushing my cats so their hair isn’t all over our furniture and carpets. Since none of my cats are long haired, I never really thought much about trimming their hair. Like most pets, loud noises terrify them anyway. I recently found out about the Scaredy Cut home grooming system for cats and dogs.
Scaredy Cut comes as a kit that contains quality barber scissors which have been adapted to use a hair clipper’s attachment guide combs. The result is a silent hair clipper that can give a quiet, non-vibrating, even length trim to your pet. The seven-piece kit includes six combs in sizes from one half to one inch and a pair of scissors with a comb holder. The combs are the very same combs used with electric clippers and are designed to glide through hair while resting on the skin and keeping the blades at a chosen distance for an even trim.
To get closer than a half an inch and for tight spots like the ear, nose, face and paw, the TINY TRIM™, a small scissor featuring a serrated blade to grip fine fur, is sold separately.
One thing I really liked was that the combs are pink or blue depending on which kit you purchase. The bright color makes it easy to see exactly where your pets fur is. I would imagine it would be really hard if the combs were black!
Here is everything I received to review:
The instructions are really easy:
Here is a demonstration video I found on YouTube with before and a before and after picture
I have been able to trim a few spots on Harley as well as Oliver, but since they are relatively short haired to begin with you can’t really see a difference. Right now they are more interested in smelling and chewing the scissors so it is hard to get any of the cats to sit still long enough for me to do a good trim. My plan is to just comb them with the combs on the scissors until they get used to seeing and feeling it, and then I will be able to give them a nice trim.
Scaredy Cut wants to give 3 of you the chance to win a Scaredy Cut of your own!
