A type of side cutters?

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

It wouldn't be called that - rather a distant relative.

Is it used in grooming or beautifying?

Could you use it to trim a dog's toe nails?

YES it's a hair trimmer.
Over to you Ed!
Non-facial hair, too ;).
I bought it for a cat. They don't make a noise so aren't scary. These clippers are what the vet uses, but barbers use them too. I saw one being used for sculpting synthetic fur..

Eg ebay 302180063876

Why trim a cat's fur? Is the cat a longhair that gets mats and tangles?

OhLook - You know, I was going to ask the same question. The only time I have ever had to do it is when a cat had an injury and the fur needed to be trimmed back a bit. But I have only ever had short-haired cats.

Strangely furred cat - this one has a fine layer near his skin which grows as a "mat" in a thin tough layer like a dense felt. The fur looks all OK on top, but the matting starts to pull itself and drives him nuts. Top fur is silky, but the type near his skin is dry and catchy. You can't brush it through so it has to go. It takes a vet a while, groomers can't do it without making a mess and a cross cat. When it's done, about once a year, he looks a bit daft with bare patches but he's much happier lad.
These clippers work a bit, but eventually a small pro sharp electric tool has to be used to cut from the side - very carefully. You can't get anything at all between the mat and the skin.

Here you go.

I have made statements like this before, but nevertheless - everyone will have used this item and I imagine every household will have one. My cats neither need it nor use it!
