The Purrfect Arch, As Seen On TV, is an all in one grooming kit for your cat. The arch shaped bristles are designed for your feline to groom themselves, while also giving a massage and reducing shedding of cat hair around your home. Catnip can be put in the bottom of the product to further attract you cat. The catnip is meant to encourage them to scratch and play on the carpet base. The Purrfect Arch advertises hours of play for your cat, while providing a deep cleaning of your cat’s fur.
Many product owners had issues attracting cats to the Purrfect Arch. The catnip helps grab their attention, but does not maintain it for long. You can bring a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Cats can be finicky creatures, but a majority of owners had a hard time getting their cats to interact with the Purrfect Arch.
There are also a few quality issues with the product. Once assembled, the U-shaped bristles do not stay attached to the base. A bigger cat can easily dismantle the attachment. Some owners tried glue to keep the pieces together, but weren’t very successful. The base isn’t heavy enough to keep the Purrfect Arch upright. An aggressive grooming session, or heavier cat, will cause the entire piece to topple over.
You can buy the Purrfect Arch for $11.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond, instead of splurging and buying it through the As Seen On TV site at $19.95. The product comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, which may or may not be needed. Our suggestion- buy the cheaper version, or skip this product all together. You are better off buying a brush and spending quality time with your kitty.
