Does your cat hate to be brushed? Do they start running when they see you grab their usual brush? If you answered yes, then the BrushPod from Kuba & Leia could be just the thing you're looking for, to help make their hate for grooming a thing of the past!
Product Review by Laura Wright and her cat, Eponine (Epi).
The BrushPod® arrived in lovely, sleek packaging and all of the necessary tools were inside a handy storage container. Not only is the actual brush included, but as part of the tool kit you also receive a pair of soft-touch claw clippers, a laser toy which has three modes (a red dot for playtime, a torch, and a UV light to uncover any urine spots in the house), and a cylinder of their fresh, special blend catnip to put inside the brush.
As soon as I opened up the box and started taking out the different items, Epi was immediately intrigued. I think she could smell the catnip! As she starting rubbing her head all over the box.
I opened up the cap on the top of the brush and sprinkled in a few bits of catnip. I started out with just a small sprinkle, as Epi seems to react differently to different types of catnip. I noticed that the brush head was extremely good quality, it felt like something you would want to use on your own hair! The brush is made up of a soft elastomer, which makes it soft, strong, and safe for cats.
I was a little worried that when I started to use the brush the catnip might fall out and create a mess, but the BrushPod® has a unique mesh system that prevents the catnip from getting onto your cat, so it’s totally mess-free. Also, the proximity of catnip to the bristles in the brush head, will give most cats a wonderful euphoric experience!
Epi is very nervous and aware of new things, and doesn’t usually like to be brushed, which has always been an issue, as she moults quite a lot. I left the brush (filled with the catnip) out for a couple of hours so she could have a sniff of it and get used to it, and after a couple of failed attempts she lay down and let us brush her. I think she even secretly enjoyed it!
The other tools inside the kit are great too, although we haven’t used the clippers yet, the laser toy has been a firm favourite. I will definitely carry on using the BrushPod® for grooming Epi, as it has been one of the only pet brushes we’ve ever been able to successfully use for more than a minute, and after a few more sessions, it will hopefully become our go-to product.
The BrushPod® is described as the world's first catnip brush and toolkit. Designed to be your go-to companion for grooming and playtime, and even the most anti-being-brushed moggy can't resist! I definitely agree with this, and would 100% recommend the BrushPod® from Kuba & Leia to any cat owner who is struggling to find the right brush for grooming, as it's a high-quality, beautifully designed product, with a fantastic value price tag.
