    Hi all

    My British shorthair cat is old enough to join the show circuit.

    I was wondering what grooming brush experienced competitors use in preparation for shows.

    I also need recommendations on tools to deal with annual shedding.

    Your breeder should be able to help with what tools work best for her cats. Still no guarantee you’ll win best in show though ;)

    Your breeder is defo the one to ask, you don’t want to ruin the dense crisp texture of a BSH coat.

    When I took my brits I gave them a quick once over with a slicker brush to get any loose hairs out and that was about it. I never messed with a bsh coat too much.

    Yup don't over brush or you will strip out all the undercoat making the coat flat , A damp hand works wonders for getting out all loose hair, just stroke them and it will come out, Also allot of breeders do a bran bath. Go on youtube, you will find loads of video's of BSH having a bran bath as part of show prep doing it the week before the show
