So anyway I bought this brush because the cat developed a little bit of a rash on his lower back (upper tail?) and I thought it might be best if he didn't swallow so much hair while trying to scratch it.
When I took the brush out of the box, the first thing I noticed was that it's heavy. It feels well-made. The handle is comfortable, and it doesn't look like it's likely to break anytime soon. I gave it a trial run through my own hair (is that weird?), and came out unscathed. This product has been tested on people! It didn't pull a single hair out of my head. I don't know what that says about me.
As for the cat, he was very excited to find me sitting on the floor in the living room. When he came up to investigate, I surprised him by running the brush down his back. This might not be the best tactic if you have a cat who trusts you. After the initial "WTF" reaction, he settled in for a nice long brush. He'd wander away every few minutes then come back for more. When I was finally done (when the brush wasn't really pulling anything else out of him), I had a pile of fur big enough to construct a new cat. When I put the brush down on the floor to go get a trash bag, I returned to find him lying in the pile of hair, rubbing his face on the brush. The cat is super soft and after a day has stopped chewing on his butt. So it was a hit.
1. Do not brush your cat while wearing nice clothing. You'd think this would be common sense, but I am, apparently, an idiot.
2. Brush your cat outside, unless your cat likes to run away or your yard is infested with hawks or something.
3. Introduce the cat to the brush the way you'd introduce him to a new toy or a new husband.
4. Take pictures of the giant pile of fur that this brush produces.
The first time I used it, I swear she lost two cats worth of hair. I kept using it over the course of a few weeks when her shedding was at its highest, and more and more hair kept coming off her. It was insane!
Her coat is now silky soft and shiny. She LOVES getting brushed. It's almost a daily routine. I haven't found that it pulls out unnessecary hair that isn't loose. It literally just grabs the undercoat that is shedding and brushes it out. The button that pushes the hair off the brush is handy and it easily removes the hair with little effort.
Leela is a short haired black cat and doesn't have issues with hair balls or matting. I highly recommend and have seen major improvements in her coat over the last few months. It has also helped keep her hair off furniture and dust ball collections.
It is possible to over brush your cat. My cat loves being brushed with the Furminator. She will lay down next to the brush and meow and purr until you brush her. That being said, we’ve been brushing her a ton because she loves it so much. IT IS POSSIBLE TO OVERDO THIS!!!!!! She kept losing substantial amounts of fur each time we brushed her and the amount didn’t seem to taper off at all. We were shocked that she had so much hair to lose. Turns out- she didn’t. We aren’t sure if the Furminator is shaving her or what’s going on but there’s a few places where her fur looks super short and you can actually see her skin peeking through her fur on one spot in her back. USE WITH CAUTION
I also want to add... I have a munchkin that is 2 pounds and it worked great on her, too. So, if you are a crazy cat lady like myself with multiple cats of different sizes.. this Large variety would work with all your cats.
