Plus, this brush comes with an ergonomic handle for comfortable combing sessions.
This comb is as easy to use as it is to look at. The shell-style comb from Ameliade features flexible, arched metal teeth that massage and pick up loose fur as you comb using the comfortable cat-shaped grip. “His majesty hasn't liked any of the other pet combs and brushes we have tried and fights my hair brush as if it's Smog himself!” one pet parent wrote. “I saw the ad for this pet brush on Instagram and searched for it here. It's reasonably priced, easy to hold and gentle, even if I happen to brush a little rougher than I intend. Best of all, Thorin doesn't try to fight me or eat the brush!”

There are sharp edges inside of it, and it actually helps thin the hair out at the base … This brush had both cats looking great, and they don't run when I approach with the brush!”
Designed specifically for cats based on their size and fur type, the FURminator is a deshedding tool like no other. It comes in both long-hair and short-hair models (as well as a small and large size) and promises to remove any and all loose undercoat that causes hairballs and matting.

“I've been looking at this item for a little less than a year, thinking there's no way in the world this works,” one pet parent wrote of the CELEMOON ultra-soft silicone cat brush on Amazon. “When it came in, [I] was happy and hopeful … I read the directions. It said to prevent fur from flying, wet the brush first. I did. I ended up with four handfuls of fur. OMG!!!! I thought my Siamese was gaining weight.” Plus, the silicone bristles are basically just a cat massager.
If your cat doesn’t let you come near her with a brush, then she might want to take grooming into her own hands. This self-grooming brush from Prowithlin can be attached to the corner of any wall or piece of furniture and features gentle plastic bristles that your cat can rub on. The brush will collect her hair for you, and there’s even a compartment for catnip to entice her to groom.
