Clipping cats

This is about clipping for routine husbandry purposes! NOT show clipping.

Most long haired breeds of cats (especially Persians) frequently require a degree of "serious" clipping rountinely, for which you require a specific type of clipper which fulfils requirements to suit both your cat/s and the task/s to be undertaken. As can be appreciate a newly clipped cat is going to look rather different for a few weeks! However it is surprising how quickly the coat regrows.

With cats especially - both noise and vibration are key "stress and fear" factors. With any cat clipping is never going to be easy. (Even some professional animal groomers will confide cats are the ones they dread clipping!)

Unfortunately many of the attractively prices "clippers" are ambitious in their stated roles and frequently prove totally unsuitable. The best suited and quietest machine are the more expensive ones simply because they are more complex in the way they are manufactured.

Your choice of clipper is important for two main reasons -

First - It clips in a manner that is as "pleasant" as you can possibly make it for the cat.

Cats in the main are nervous of the unknown and being clipped is not on their list of enjoyable pastimes as shown in the often violent reaction! Machine "noise or tone" and "blade vibration" are the two features likely to make the task of clipping difficult!

Secondly - blade selection.
Selection of the right blade is important so that the fur is cut cleanly and not "pulled" especially when dealing with matt "balls!" Understanding and selecting the most suitable blade for this and other tasks will make it easier to achieve not only a good result but easier on your cat. In any form of clipping it is the blade that plays the important role of "cutting." The clipper is the instrument of power, tone and vibration! Combine the four and you are well on the way!

The selection of either corded (main powered with cable) or cordless (battery driven) is matter of personal choice!

Points to consider are -
"Corded" machines are generally less expensive but have the disadvantage of both trailing and cable restriction.

"Cordless" are more expensive! In recent years battery technology has made huge advancments. Batteries today are light, small, with good clip times and a fast re-charge times! Quality clippers are often supplied with two battery packs allowing continous clipping.

NOISE LEVEL SCORES
Assessing the noise level and creating a "score" for any clipper or trimmer is intended for general guidance purposes only.

A number of varying factors may exist - such as whether you are clipping inside a building, or outside in the open, can have a bearing on the noise level perceived by the animal. The Introduction of any clipper should be done sympathetically and on a gradual basis if you have reason to believe your animal is either new to or nervous about being clipped. Noise Level Scores can be seen on each machine specification and are calculated as follows ....

The Noise Level Score 1
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be "almost silent" Currently only one has ever qualified - the Aesculap "Exacta" trimmer!

The Noise Level Score 2
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be of low sound or tone level. Those with a + added should be consider as marginally louder. Such machine would be considered suitable for all nervous temprements. Aesculap clippers which have an exceptionally low tone are frequently listed in this category.
Vibration factors tend to range from "minimal to eradicated" in this catagory.

The Noise Level Score 3
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be of a lower or average sound/ tone level. Those with a + added should be consider as marginally louder in tone.

The Noise Level Score 4
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be of a noisy sound or tone level. Those with a + added should be consider marginally louder in tone. Such machines are not considered suitable for any nervous temprements. Vibration levels may be high.

The Noise Level Score 5
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be noisy. Those with a + should be consider marginally louder. Such machines are not considered suitable for any nervous or new to clipping animal. Vibration levels may be high.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
If you want a small but powerful professional clipper that is both comfortable and light to hold, as well as relatively quiet with a unique smooth tone to use on your cat, - a clipper which is designed to give years of service, then the German made Aesculap Favorita II is probably one of the best to fit those criteria!

Made by Aesculap who are part of the of the German company - B Braun GmbH - a multinational company, internationally famous for decades, for its pioneering and leading involvement in both veterinary and human medical equipment. Today recognised as specialists in their field, the design, engineering and finished quality of all their products is typically German and virtually unbeatable!

All Aesculap clippers have a history of being manufactured to a standard where quality, reliability and long levity are the key concerns. The Favorita II is no exception - superb engineering that results in a motor tone which is unique and is a hall mark of all Aesculap clipping products. One impressive factor which features this is the lack of nervousness exhibited by animals when clipped with this machine. For all animals/pets whatever their size the lack of vibration and high noise levels generally reduces their stress factor when being clipped.

Designed over three decades ago, it has been sold in large numbers all over the world, and today both the mains and cordless versions are still highly sought after. The innovative design and attractive style of the slim shaped handpiece, incorporates a combination of balance and lightness, to ensure the operator precision clipping to the highest standards. We particularly favour the side positioned "on-off" switch designed and positioned for easy and safe operation especially in an emergency situation.

A number of features place this machine into a superior category, including the ball bearing universal motor, which provides great durability and long life, with almost total vibration free running. The ventilation system eliminates aspects of overheating, ensuring suitability for prolonged use. The air filter can be easily cleaned and the motor and all internal parts are encased in an unbreakable body casing.

Whilst originally designed for the professional dog groomer, the Favorita II has proved an excellent choice beyond the realms of dog clipping and become popular with owners clipping many breeds of cats. In fact all over Europe it is one of the recognised clippers for the cat owner. The blades offer a good selection for the various types of clipping required whether it is matt removal or clipping for sanitary reasons.

PLEASE NOTE!
Only AESCULAP “Favorita “blades can be fitted to this clipper.

Comment: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED/OUTSTANDING

PROS: German Made! - Can one say more? Ultimate engineering and quality - built to last! Pure BMW engineering!
CONS: Expensive? Un-ashamedly Yes! That however is the price of quality engineering!

PRODUCT INFORMATION
The appeal of Aesculap clippers (and this applies to all their machines whether for large or small animals) is above all the many qualities of this make, the quietness of the machine when in operation! For any breeder or pet owner of a cat with a natural nervousness to being clipped the Aesculaps’s unique low tone and natural smoothness of the motor coupled with the lack of blade vibration makes it the natural choice

With over two decades of manufacturing the Favorita II - probably the best cat and dog clipper made - Aesculap suddenly stormed the grooming world in 2010 lifting manufacturing standards to a new level with the introduction of their FAV5 GT105- their first ever detachable A5 type blade using clipper!.

The FAV5 is a powerful machine with a smooth sounding motor which apart from being typically Aesculap in tone inspires confidence in its ability to generate power for professional use. Now with that power and the expertise of Aesculap engineering you can also fit not only your existing detachable A5 blades - whether they be Oster, Andis, Laube, Thrive or Wahl. Aesculap have also created a full range of Aesculap high quality German made detachable type A5 blades which closely “mirror” the sizes of your existing Oster blades.

Peasridge was one of the few privileged to conduct intensive practical field trials in a number of professional grooming parlours and can say with complete confidence that the FAV5 fully lived up to the very high standards of performance we have come to expect from Aesculap over many years. Since then it has gone on to prove itself in many areas apart from cat and dog grooming.

A number of engineering features lifts this machine into a superior category and as such places it ahead of any competitors.
A ball bearing universal motor providing great durability
A smooth low noise level motor tone - the hallmark of Aesculap quality!
A cutting stroke ratio generating virtually a total absence of vibration.
A ventilation system eliminating overheating during prolonged use.
Easily cleaned air filter
Motor and component parts in an unbreakable body casing
Designed and made in Germany by skilled German engineers
Two year manufacturer's warranty.

CLIPPER RATING
Peasridge Star rating: FIVE
Peasridge Score rating: 96%
Comment: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

PROS: Highly impressive clipper of exceptional quality combined with outstanding design and engineering skills. Both the previous FAV5's models (mains and cordless) proved themselves in many clipping fields! The "Hybrid" makes this top quality clipper more a affordable purchase!
CONS: We question rear end positioning of the on/off switch in an emergency situation

PRODUCT INFORMATION
The "Hybrid" is basically an Aesculap FAV5 mains clipper with the ability to be transformed into a cordless machine. To do this you would have to purchase battery packs and the charger unit. The cord pack is removed and replace with a battery inserted in the rear of the handpiece in the same way as you insert or remove the cord pack. This then allows the option of use in either mode. Purchase of a second battery would offer continuous clipping.

For the customer seeking traditional German high quality in both design and engineering the "Hybrid" offers the opportunity to acquire one of the most outstanding professional clippers seen on the market in recent years. It can be used with all your existing A5 detachable blades irrespective of the make, and is marketed at a more affordable price than either the Fav5 CL GT306 cordless or Fav5 GT105 mains corded machines.

Of special value to all small animal owners but especially cat owners is the smooth and unmistakable "Aesculap" motor tone! Cats do not have an appreciation of being clipped. Aesculap clippers have always been noted for motors that emitted smoother and lower tones than many other similar machines which makes them highly suited to all animals of a nervous temperament. The "Hybrid" not only inherits the quieter motor tone but enjoys the added feature of blade vibration eradicated – a feature of many Aesculap model both large and small.

The "Hybrid" GT308 in the “corded” mode has a slightly higher cutting stroke frequency 2500/min. However when converted to the battery mode, the cutting stroke rate is marginally reduced to 2300/min without any noticeable loss of power. Otherwise apart from the mode of operation it is virtually identical to the cordless model having the same slim shaped handpiece, and compact length. Like both the mains and cordless Fav5's it has the same generous sized blade release button, not the “mean” type supplied by many manufacturers. A clever bit of typically German design and engineering holds the blade release clip open whilst you refit the blade!

Whether you are an individual cat owner or breeder clipping for routine husbandry or sanitary purposes, the Aesculap range and other makes of detachable A5 type blades offer you a huge choice to select from whatever the task confronting you maybe.
