Oliver & Nubia: A little more behind the ear…

Hi everyone,

Nubia: It came in a box (which I really wanted to get into!)

Nubia: But the big question was… WHAT was it??? I wasn’t entirely sure at first but my humans quickly educated me! Mookie is a 2 in 1 massager and brush (I think I personally prefer the brush! Especially down my back. <3)

Nubia: See I told you it’s awesome!!!

Oliver: Fine fine… BUT I think it’s time to pass over to the humans for some more details about the Mookie!

Review:

As you may have gathered from our two kitties already Mookie is a 2 in 1 massager and brush that helps you make the most of quality time with your pet – whether that be playing or relaxing together. It is made from soft rubber to make it easy to use, as Mookie is small it can easily be taken with you to use on the go rather than just at home
We were quite impressed with the little Mookie I have to say! Oliver is not usually one that enjoys being brushed so of course he was a bit skeptical at first BUT after a while even Mr Oli started to enjoy being brushed with the Mookie. As the brush is small and delicate it is especially good for the spots on the head or behind the ear and of course not to forget the base of the tail!

Depending on what your pet enjoys more you can use it with the cap on as a massager, or cap off as a brush. If you are using it as a massager use circular movements to gently rub over your pet. We primarily used it as a brush as Nubia would go almost instantaneously into “super-purr” mode with it!

Overall verdict:

If you are looking for some quality bonding activities with your pet (pending enjoying brushing / massaging!) this is perfect for you! We found that Nubia seeks out the Mookie now and pushes it around until we rub it down her spine to the base of her tail, while purring the whole time. And even if your cat doesn’t like being brushed this may help to get them used to it! For long hair cats this may also help with removing tangled areas more gently than with a traditional brush.

Mookie is available in various colours directly from their own website for £10 excluding postage.

You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

About Mookie:

Our story starts in a tangle of goose grass. Doddy, a little Westie Terrier, spent a sunny Sunday diving in and out of hedgerows and thickets of grass. He was one happy chap!

Once he got home though, his owner, Patricia, found that he had brought most of the hedgerow back with him, but traditional dog brushes were too coarse and rough to remove the knots of tricky goose grass that had got stuck in his fur from all that playtime.

Doddy also hated being brushed, and Patricia needed something that could fit in her hand to gently remove any little tangles. And with that, the idea for the Mookie was born!

What Patricia didn’t realise though, was that the thing Mookieactually did best was giveDoddya bit of much needed fuss. So what started off as something practical, pretty soon turned into something really special. Doddywas jumping on the sofa for a massage before bed and a scratch on his belly when he wanted to play. Patricia had unwittingly created the best excuse for some family bonding time, all the time!

To top it off, thanks to fantastic factories and manufacturers, Mookie has been designed and made in Britain. We’re always happy to hear from you. If you’d like to get in touch, please email patricia@mookiepet.com

  1. Seems they are in 5 stars SPA 🙂 My Princess hates this kind of things like Oliver 🙂 But Oliver is a good one, at least lets to do this… Thank you dear Marc, photographs are so lovely, especially Oliver’s photographs 🙂 amazing. Love, nia

      1. Hence my note about cats that don’t enjoy brushing it may help to get them used to it. 😉 trust me this is a huge improvement with Oliver who usually shreds at sign of a brush LOL. A month later I can now even brush him with our normal brush. 😉

        1. I have a comb for longhair-cats or dogs – and my two do not like being combed, either. I only do it when it gets too much for my tom, who has some middle lenght hair and very thick fur on his hind legs, where he has got difficulties to reach it. He is not extremely fond of combing, but when shedding fur like in spring or autumn he is thankful for being combed.

          1. It’s funny how some love it and some hate it. Nubia you could brush for hours and days until no hair would be left! And she would still purr away lol

  2. Hello! I just wanted to thank you personally for supporting my blog and I and wanted to invite you to celebrate Beauty Blogmas with me! It would mean so much to me if you could please leave me some makeup and holiday related post ideas, suggestions, or requests because I can’t do this without you! Thanks you so much, happy holidays, and as always, xoxo!!! ~Makena
