I needed a backscratcher for those times when I'm working alone and just can't reach the right spot. These are great- and have enough 'scratchy power' and are not sharp or harmful. Seeing me scratch my back made my cat jealous, so I used it to scratch his back. He went nuts! He prefers it to just a human hand. There are several in this pack so enough for all the right rooms and some for office or to give to friends. And friends who have cats! Nice quality metal and silicone grippy handle, I really couldn't be more pleased.
