I have been grooming Tiger with the Zoom Groom for the last few weeks.
He seems to like it. Hopefully, when his hair has fully grown back this
will prevent mats. This could take a year or more.

why has tiger got no hair currently? the zoom groom sounds similar to
something i have called a 'love glove' which is basically a mitt you
put on which has stipples on one side to stroke the cat with and it
picks up loads of shed hairs. i think you get it from a company called
four paws, not sure. My old cat jasper used to love it, better than
combing or brushing, but my current puss jessie doesn't but then she
hates being combed at all.
you could probably get on at a pet store somewhere, very useful and
effective piece of kit

Tiger was shaved back in June when his mats were out of control. Being
at least part Maine Coon, his hair won't grow back fully for almost two
years. I have a love glove but the projections on the Zoom Groom are
much bigger - about 3/4 of an inch long. And there are only 26 of them.
They are quite flexible.
