When the fleas come off, they appear to recognize that they'll really feel so much better. They kick back and also go limp letting me turn them in all directions. The various other two cats believe the flea comb is an abuse tool and also run and conceal. The means I do the brushing needs two hands, one to brush and also the other to cover the fleas to obtain them to the water.

Zapping with the various other is a lot more effective than a regular comb if you have to hold on to the cat with one hand. It functions well on pudding pet cats also.
