My kittens have been with me for a few days now (I just got them) and they've been starting to stink up from playing in the litterbox and licking their kibble breath into their fur. Anywho:
This is the first spray shampoo I've gotten for them and the first thing that tipped me off about this "waterless spray shampoo" is that water is the first ingredient in the list. Okay. What? I followed the directions--test the nozzle first so it doesn't jet (like how most spray bottles do when you first use them), and cover your cat's eyes.
After rubbing them with a towel (hoping that would suffice) their fur in the places where I sprayed was clumped together like frozen gel. Gross. It wasn't hard or anything, but if you looked at it you could tell that something was off.
And the texture was oily and greasy (possibly from the coconut surfactants). I know it's supposed to be cleansing and moisturizing... but come on. Coconut oil isn't the best thing to use, since that stuff is SOLID at room temperature. In fact, most oils aren't that great in aerosols which they don't air and dry out.
Otherwise, with a little bit of testing on how to use this thing, I got it down to a T: Spray at least 12-15 inches away from the fur so the air dissipates and spreads the product. Rub the damp fur with a clean towel. Let your cats/kittens run around to air dry for a bit--and if the gunky, nasty oily look is there, grab a BOAR BRUSH (not a comb or a normal hairbrush with the balls at the ends) and run it through their fur. The boar brush will separate the individual follicles .
That's my take on this product--I'll use it, it smells nice, but when I hold my kittens I don't want to be disgusted with how greasy they could feel.
And, I think my cats hate the taste of their fur now, when they clean themselves.
Pros: Fragrance

Ok, I do have to admit that this product does not do well as a waterless shampoo, but then again I think all waterless shampoo is not effective at cleaning fur!
I wash my cats all the time because they love to hang out in the kitty litter box and then come hang in my bed = (. I find it difficult washing out any kind of regular soap. So I was looking for a product that did not really suds up, this was purrrfect. I spayed my cats with this product and came back hour later after they were calm, then gave them a bath. Yes it did leave their fur a caked up mess, but that did not matter because they were getting washed anyway. The point was I wanted to give them the quickest bath possible, basically I just want to rinse them with water and be done. This product washed off so quick and left their fur soft and smelling good. I was a happy camper and my cats were glad to be out of that water in such a short time. I find the longer they are in water, the louder they howl bloody murder. So this was great. So I don't want to totally dis this product, it has it's uses.

I have a new long haired kitten - and decided that rather than putting her through bathing (which she is not that fond of) that we would try something spray on. It being the only choice left at the store - and at a good price - it seemed like a great idea. Easy simple instructions - great ingredients.
The only thing good about it was the price.
After spraying my dear little fluff ball with this stuff - towel drying as instructed left her hair stuck together - and no amount of brushing made the matted greasy mess that is now her fur go away. I am really disappointed - in the product - and that now I need to put my kitten through another ordeal tonight.

After my cat needed surgery and was facing two weeks of an e-collar, I realized that she was going to get pretty scuzzy pretty fast. I picked this up hoping to stay ahead of it. It was the cheapest option by way of waterless cleaning (wipes, sprays, etc.) so I decided to give it a go. Bad decision. The only positive I can list is that it smells nice (although why does my cat need to smell like spring blossom anyway?). The negatives are many. The spray was a stream instead of a spritz and it didn't distribute well. It made her fur feel gross and gunky, it seemed to tangle the fur even as I was trying to brush it out, and my cat just plain hated it. She's a mild mannered and generally patient cat but she's just not having this. I'm going to try to get a refund and go with the wipes instead.
Pros: Fragrance
Cons: Tangles Hair
