About the Product

A long-established file maker has applied its technology to the creation of a brush for cats, and the result is " Nekojasuri," a communication brush that makes cats swoon and relax. The developer's cat, "Guga," had hated to be brushed and disliked being hugged or cuddled, making it difficult to communicate with the cat. However, he loves "Nekojasuri.” It has come to the point where he comes close to the developer even when the person needs some distance. We hope it will enhance communication between you and your cat, just like grooming between cats.

The secret of cats' fascination is the fine file surface like cats’ tongue, which is realized by the technology of Wataoka, a file manufacturer with a history of more than 130 years. The rough surface of cats’ tongues serves as a brush (grooming) to remove hair. The reason why it hurts when a cat's tongue is licked is because the surface of the tongue has a structure similar to a file. The act of grooming has a relaxing effect on the cat, and it also creates communication between cats. “Nekojasuri” is not intended for serious grooming, but like a cat's tongue, it can be used as a communication tool.

The usage is simple. Use it as if you are stroking the skin, not the surface of the hair. Stroke with just enough force to make the cat feel comfortable. The fine file surface allows stroking from any direction. The wide part of the file can be used on the back, stomach, and sides. The narrow part is perfect for the head, chin, and neck area. After use, it can be washed with water to keep it clean.

Specifications
Size: Length 210mm (8.3 inches), Width (widest part) 36mm (1.4 inches), Thickness 10mm (0.4 inches)
Color: Grayish Pink, Light Gray, Yellow (Charity good)
*We hope that all cats can live happily, and will donate a portion of the sales of the yellow one, "Charity Nekojasuri," to the One Heart Seisaku Iinkai, which is engaged in dog and cat sheltering activities in our hometown of Hiroshima Prefecture. The One Heart Seisaku Iinkai is also involved in educational activities in cooperation with the government, with the goal of eliminating dogs and cats that have to be sheltered in the first place, rather than sheltering them. We would be happy if those who wish for the happiness of cats and dogs would support this activity with us.

Care Precautions
-Not recommended for long-haired breeds such as Persian, Himalayan, Maine Coon Somali.
-Alcohol can be used for disinfection, but do not apply heat to disinfect such as boiling.
-The surface resembles a cat's tongue, but it is only a communication tool, not a brush for seriously grooming a cat's fur.

About the Maker

Wataoka Co., Ltd. is a small file manufacturer located in Nigata, Kure City, Hiroshima Prefecture. At the end of the Edo period (the 1800s), Tomohei Wataoka began manufacturing files for sawing with the file manufacturing technology he brought back from Osaka. In the 1890s, a naval arsenal was established in Kure City, Hiroshima Prefecture, and many craftsmen's skills were fostered as shipbuilding and steel-making technologies and Western-style machinery were introduced. With such a large consumption center nearby, Nigata greatly developed as a local production center for a wide variety of files as they are used by craftsmen for work and care of tools. Today, Nigata is a major production center, accounting for more than 90% of domestic production.

Wataoka, which has a 130-year history in Nigata, has been highly regarded by professional craftsmen. In recent years, Wataoka has also developed nail files and other products for the general public to pick up.

The cat file was born in the midst of a troubled period when we were stuck in the development of a plastic file for vegetables. When we tested the file as a brush on our cat "Guga" (the brown tabby cat in the image at the bottom of the page), he clearly responded pleasantly, and we thought, "perhaps it resembles the feel of a cat's tongue," so we made a series of prototypes, and “Nekojasuri” was completed. We will be happy if the file made by the traditional technique of craftsmen can enrich your life.
