    Hi All

    I’m after a good and recommended cat brush to help with shedding. Please let me know what you’d recommend.

    Hi I use a tangle teaser and comb for mine, he doesn’t like the slicker brush.

    Mine does love a good groom, in fact, she tries to grab it off me to direct it to her face. She doesn't like the gloved ones, though.

    Slicker brush and metal comb but avoid the annoying bauble ended versions .
    If you want to use a brush a metal pin brush is much better than a bristle brush but don't go for the double sided brush .A single sided one is much better.

    @buffie Are the slicker brushes good for getting rid of lose moulting hair or mainly for detangling?

    Not exactly a brush, but zoom groom is good at getting rid of loose hair. Does have a tendency to release it all into the air though! (At least with Kito it does. Mosi is long haired and I find the hair stays in the zoom groom)

    I generally just try to comb every day with a metal comb, especially when they’re shedding. It’s just a cheap one I bought from a supermarket years ago but it does the job.

    The. Zoom groom is good for getting hair of soft furnishings and carpets especially stairs if you use the back of it.

    Obviously not grooming an animal but fir those who don't know it's quite handy to

    I use a comb for tangles , the one I linked to in an earlier post. The slicker I use for general grooming as it goes deep into Meeko's coat finding any tangles that I have missed.

    I asked this question the other week and found the combination of the Zoom Groom ( which is great at getting the hair out) and the slicker brush (to then capture the loose hair) works really well :D.

    I definitely must try this, even though she isn't shedding much!.. Famous last words I bet

    @Nicola234 I might try this too. I recommended it on her as my dogs love the feel and said it might work on cats.

    She already loves grooming well to be honest she purrs at everything it's hard to tell what she doesn't like!
