During the shedding season, pet cats often experience hair loss and require regular removal of loose hair. Traditionally, cat owners would use a shedding brush to remove the main loose hair and then resort to a lint roller to remove any remaining cat hair on the cat's body. This process often requires the use of both a cat comb and a lint roller, which can be cumbersome and time-consuming.
With Catom, designer Zihang Cheng has addressed this issue by creating a multifunctional tool that combines the functions of a cat comb and a lint roller. The top part of the product features a cat hair comb, which effectively removes a large amount of cat hair during the hair changing season. To use it, simply detach the comb, toggle the side switch to rotate the comb, and the floating hair will be collected at the bottom. Press the button at the top of the comb to remove the cat hair.
The lower part of Catom is a hair roller, designed to remove scattered and stuck cat hair. After use, the cat hair brush can be fixed on the main body of the roller with the snap at the end of the brush, allowing for easy storage and hanging when not in use.
The design of Catom prioritizes both functionality and aesthetics. The product body is made of plastic with a skin-friendly frosted surface, ensuring comfort during use. The tail sling is made of nylon, providing durability and flexibility. The dimensions of Catom are 200 mm x 40 mm x 70 mm, making it compact and portable.
Catom has received recognition for its innovative design. It was awarded the Iron A' Design Award in the Pet Care, Toys, Supplies, and Products for Animals category in 2023. This prestigious award is given to well-designed, practical, and innovative creations that meet professional and industrial requirements. Catom stands out for its integration of industry best practices, competent technical characteristics, and contribution to a better world.
With Catom, cat owners can now enjoy a convenient and efficient solution for removing scattered cat hair. This multifunctional cat hair comb offers a new design concept that combines the functionality of a cat comb and a lint roller, providing a hassle-free experience for pet owners.
