I found a grooming tool that controls shedding, and you might have one in your purse right now.

Great article. My cats love a good brushing.

I recently learned, from experience, that a flea comb is great for getting loose hairs out of my cat's coat. It's also superb at helping undo tangles. The drawback is it tends to pull, so I can use it for just a few minutes at a time before Ragamuffin decides enough is enough! And I thought she made a big deal about getting her pills.

From the day I got my Spencer,11 years ago, he has always hated to he brushed, but he lives to be petted. So, while I put him, I "rake" him of his hair. It comes out in fist fulls.

#3 THE GOODY COMB!! Brushes and mitts do absolutely nothing much at all because they only skim over the surface. Everyone of my cats adores the Goody comb and they literally line up for their turn. Besides loose fur, it also pulls out skin debris, dirt, lil scabs, and (G*d forbid!) the occasional flea.
All for about $5! Thanks, my Cherie!!

I am getting best results with a dog brush - for Cocker Spaniel.

I have a few good combs that do the job. Don't live in the States so have not seen this particular brand. I am allergic to cats but will always have a furry cat in my home. Forget the allergies, I am now allergic to pollen from maple trees, birch, as well as grass pollen...do drive on many dirt rural roads watching wildlife and storm chasing so allergies can be forgotten for what Nature offers...cats and wilderness!

Cute story - have no idea why those cats don't like to be brushed. I never used the metal bristle brushes on my kitties. - Used the cheapo plastic bristled ones. If any of my cats ever saw me pick up the brush, even to wash it, they'd run up to get a good brushing, tummies included and lots of purring. When I stopped, there was always kitty swearing...so glad I never translated some of their words. Thank you - enjoyed it.

I have nails and not claws but good ones and all the cats love it when I scratch deep down and i get so into making huge balls of fur and they love it. They want something that reaches down into the skin with no pain of course. Just surface skin.

This was a great post. Last week for the strays that let and want me to touch them i need another brush and I started looking onlkine last week so this comes at a good time.
The post. I think something like the mitt works and also something a little deeper. I use microfiber cloths on the strays to dry them off from rsin or snow and they love it.It does grab the loose fur and they want to be touched. So i think as for the mitts they have a purpose also.

TY so much...
