The Li'l Pals Massage Kitten and Puppy Brush can be used when the coat is wet or dry and is a great tool for small cats and kittens that need to become accustomed to the grooming process. Li'l Pals Massage Kitten Brushes ensure a pleasant grooming experience. When the coat is dry, the rubber pins gently massage the skin to stimulate oils for a shiny, healthy coat. Used wet, the rubber pins massage the shampoo into the kitten's coat, increasing its effectiveness and relaxing the kitten's muscles. The Li'l Pals grooming line encourages a stronger bond between the owner and pet.
