Our goal was to create a product that transcends the bog standard cat brush, offering a more engaging experience during our cherished moments with our cats.
With the vision of a catnip-infused brush at its core, we contemplated how brushing sessions are not just grooming routines but amazing opportunities to bond with our feline companions.
To enhance this special connection, we wanted to incorporate elements of playfulness and well-being into the design.
Alongside this we recognise the significance of claw health, especially for indoor cats, so we decided to include a set of claw clippers. Additionally, we couldn't resist the allure of a laser pen, as the sheer joy of cats chasing after laser beams is unparalleled.
Thus, our Brush was brought to life—an unusual and fun cat toolkit that enriches the moments we share with our beloved feline overlords!
The key features include:
Soft Bristle Brush
Brush features soft bristles to provide an ideal length for grooming both short and medium-haired cats. Designed with user comfort in mind, the brush boasts a round head that effortlessly fits snugly in the palm of your hand, ensuring ergonomic ease during grooming sessions.
The thoughtfully crafted domed design lends the brush a discreet appearance in your hand, promoting a seamless connection between your touch and the brush. This intentional design choice minimises any potential discomfort or apprehension in your cat, resulting in a more comfortable and enjoyable brushing experience.
Clippers and Laser Toy
Inside the canister you'll find a three-in-one laser toy with torch and UV light modes and also a pair of our custom coloured soft touch and super sharp claw clippers.
For an even more captivating and delightful brushing experience, Brush offers you the option to place a small amount of the included catnip inside the brush head, elevating the sensory experience for your feline companion.
As the bristles gently glide through your cat's fur, the aromatic essence of the catnip permeates through the small lozenges positioned adjacent to the bristles.
It's important to note that catnip is considered safe for cats. The naturally occurring compounds found in catnip, such as nepetalactone, have been observed to produce a variety of responses in cats, including increased playfulness, relaxation, and a sense of well-being. When used appropriately and in moderation, catnip can contribute to a more enjoyable and engaging grooming experience for your cat companion.
Choosing sustainable materials for our cat brush
In our design process, we prioritise the selection of sustainable and safe materials. The primary components of the brush are crafted from ABS and TPU, both of which are non-toxic, odourless, safe for use, and are recyclable.
For the claw clippers, we use steel and TPE materials, which can also be recycled.
To ensure safety and hygiene, the catnip canister is constructed from toughened borosilicate glass. This choice offers exceptional durability, making it highly resistant to breakage. While this type of glass has superior hygiene properties, it should be noted that due to its higher melting point compared to regular glass, recycling options may vary. We recommend consulting your local recycling centre for guidance.
The laser pen incorporates a lithium battery and should be recycled as a small or electrical appliance, similar to other small electronic devices. We also went to great lengths to ensure that the laser power in the pen is limited to 1mw - therefore ensuring it is eye safe.
We are committed to sustainability throughout our entire product experience, including our packaging.
