  • Bite Buster arm sheaths...what are they?

    Hi everybody!

    This is my 1st post although I've been lurking here for a few weeks learning as much as I can on cat grooming. I live on the West Coast of Florida and been grooming my 2 cats for the past 2 years. My 1st kitty is very mean LOL... although it is amazing how a 'tender hand & soft words' changed him. I can groom him no problems just like I do the youngest one.

    I have a BIG love for cats just like Seleste ) and would love to turn this passion for cats into a future biz. There is only one grooming school around and they teach on cat grooming, but 90% of the course is base on dogs and at 5K (that I really cannot afford) I would prefer to find a p/t job in a grooming shop that does cats (hard to find as many do not do cats) I never shaved my cats and that is something I would really love to learn to do also.

    My question is what exaclty are "Bite Buster arm sheaths" that I read on this forum and where can you buy them? I did an online search and couldn't find them.

    Thank you!

    p.s. 'Minou' is the slang word for 'kitty' in French )

      I've only seen them in the old shop that I worked it. It is a heavy duty glove that goes up to about the elbow. I have never used one. To me it looks like there is no way to control cat or dog with that being on your hand. But like I said, I've never used one. Don't know where you would get one other than maybe Petedge, or Ryans.

        It is not a glove.

        The fingers and s are exposed so you may use them freely.

        The sheath covers the forearms and the soft tissue between and index finger.

            Thanks for setting me straight on that. I learn something new all the time.

              not that bad...

              Actually once you break them in, you barely know you have them on.

                  I ordered a pair - actually the combo set - because I also volunteer at the SPCA and dying to cut those poor little kitties claws. I wouldn't try it without some protection.

                  Is anyone using the combo or using only the sleeves? I wonder how must protection the gloves actually gives compare to just wearing the sleeves.

                    I've worked in Animal Control for years prior to becoming a groomer. I know bite gloves work. A feral cat can bite, and all it does is pinch you. It does hurt, but never breaks the skin. I wouldn't try the sleeve for clipping claws at a shelter, as the cats are more stressed than normal.
