      Well worth trying

      Mikki Grooming Wipes Description: Manufacturer: Mikki / Type: Grooming - Wipes. If you have read any of my earlier reviews (thank you very much, I really appreciate all reads, rates and comments!) then you are likely to already know that I share my home with 2 Siamese cats. You probably also know that cats are not great lovers of water and despite being very fastidious about cleaning themselves, will occasionally end up a little grubby (especially if they are pale coloured) Unlike dogs, popping them into the bath or shower isn't really an option, unless you want to be clawed to pieces while suffering their wrath for days afterwards! These wipes are very similar to baby wipes but of course, designed for pets. They can be used for both cats and dogs so are handy to keep in the car for those muddy dog walks too. You can buy them in small and large packs and they cost around £2.75 and £5.75. The large packs last us for absolutely ages and because they are packaged in a plastic tub, they stay moist right until the end. The wipes have a very gentle fragrance which doesn't seem to bother our cats at all. Having said that, if you have a pet with sensitive skin or allergies then you may want to be careful and maybe try a small area first to ensure there is no irritation. To use, simply pull out a wipe from the tub, sneak up on the cat and wipe. At first this was a little awkward but now the cats are quite used to being wiped and actually sit very well. It is very similar to just stroking them so using these wipes can actually feel like a bit of a treat. After use, just look at the wipe to see the grime that it has removed from your pet. After using, your pet should look cleaner and perhaps even a little shinier. If I am being honest, I don't really notice any extra shine but I am not using them for this purpose, but simply to keep them clean which they definitely do. Overall, these wipes are a great idea either as a quick scrub down after a walk, or for cats who don't like water. They are handy and easy to use and work very well. If you see these in a local pet store then I would definitely recommend that you give them a try. I am awarding them 4 stars simply because they may be better if they were completely unfragranced.

      A simple grooming aid

      Mikki Grooming Wipes are a product that you can use to groom and care for your pampered pet cat in between very occasional washes. They can also be safely used with pet dogs too. When used they can add shine and help to prevent/ minimize tangled fur. As our cats don't much like the water, we do try to look out for alternate ways to maintain their clean and glossy coats and keep the rest of them in tip top condition at the same time, thats where Mikki Grooming Wipes come in handy. There is also a range of wipes from this maker for ears and sensitive areas on your pet. ********************************************************** The grooming wipes come in a simple to use plastic container which helps to hold the moisture within the wipes when being stored ready for use. The container looks pretty much similar to the one shown here with a bit more red to it, so it should still be easy to find amongst the pet care items. The small packs cost around £2.65 and the larger packs are around £5.65. The larger packs contain at least 70 wipes which works out at roughly 8/ 9p pr wipe. The wipes are something we keep to use as quick spruce up items, as they are soft enough to use on the main body of our cats including the tail, paws, etc. We don't use these wipes for cleaning ears or near our cats eyes. ********************************************************** When you want to use a wipe you can easily get one out of the dispenser and this pulls the tip of the next wipe out slightly ready for the next use. We have found the wipes are handy when our cats have made a mess when eating and need a quick spruce up. They can also be used on dirty dusty paws and also as a general grooming and shine enhancing wipe. When using the wipes as a general grooming aid, we have found that by simply using one wipe very gently on the our cats fur, a light shine can be achieved when combined with a gentle but thorough brushing. The wipes have a light cologne fragrance to them which is not too over powering or off putting to our cats, which is something we felt was very important. ********************************************************** The wipes are made to be used on other animals as well as cats, but as we have only used them with our cats its not possible to say how they perform in those situations. However as we have found them to be very handy for use with our cats we can recommend them for that purpose. I would say that with anything that has an unusual aroma, however light, its always best to allow your cat to have a quick sniff to gauge their reaction first. We never like to use anything that can be an irritation to our cats and have found that if they have caught a whiff and not minded, or had a reaction to a patch test prior to use then a product is generally ok to use. ********************************************************** As our cats really do not like being washed and shampooed much, we have found the wipes to be useful to us and would recommend them to owners in similar situations. As a light grooming enhancement wipe I feel these work reasonably well and would rate them as a 3 star product. The deduction of 2 stars is really due to the fact that owners of cats with sensitive skins may not be able to make use these wipes in certain cases. But as with anything you use directly on your cats fur or skin, we find a small patch test prior to any main use can help you to work out if a product will suit your kitty.
