The 9 Best Cat Arch Groomers

This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Although cats are well-equipped to clean their own fur by design, some are much better at it than others, and the process can lead to uncomfortable and messy hairballs. These arch groomers let them get to all the places that make them purr, and can help to keep at least some hair off your furniture and clothes. They can free you from daily brushing and save you from hand cramps, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

September 03, 2020:

Although grooming arches aren’t a complete replacement for useful accessories like deshedding tools and specialty shampoos, they can offer your cat comfort and relief when you aren’t able. While they pose little-to-no risk to the pets who enjoy them, they do constitute a bit of a tripping hazard to the humans who buy them. With that in mind, please be sure to place yours in a safe, out-of-the-way space to avoid unnecessary harm.

Where specific models are concerned, just a reminder that the Cathole Cleaning Door doesn’t stand on its own and must be fitted into a vertical surface like a door or wall to function. This sort of installation isn’t for everyone, so if you go this route, we would urge you to get skilled professionals involved if you aren’t a builder or carpenter yourself. Either way, always remember to measure twice, cut once, and above all else, put safety first.

Elsewhere, if you’re dealing with limited floor space, be sure to consider models that include scratching posts and cat beds like the Furhaven Tiger Tough and Peekab Tower Tree. They’re a great value considering all you get, and their added features can have the same sort of siren’s call as catnip. This can be especially helpful since everything besides cardboard boxes are hit and miss with cats.
