BRUSHES FOR CATS: THE BEST TO CHOOSE FROM

BRUSHES FOR CATS: THE BEST TO CHOOSE FROM

Cat brushes are not a single product suitable for everyone, everyone has a different coat that requires the best cat brush suitable one. Here is a guide to the best brushes to choose from.

Whether your cat has short or long fur, you must always remember to keep it well cared for. Then comes the inevitable question: which brush is best? Let’s take a look at how to choose a set of brushes and combs to suit your kitten.

Grooming your feline friend isn’t always an easy task, especially if you haven’t used him since he was a puppy. However, grooming is crucial to her health, as it helps shed dead hair and keep her skin healthy. In addition to removing hair, brushing helps distribute the natural oils on the cat’s coat, increasing its natural shine.

Depending on the breed of the cat, which in turn determines its type of fur, you will need different tools, but in general terms, the indispensable ones are a carder/rake, a brush, and a comb with clenched teeth.  

In some seasons, cats sport two layers of fur: superficial and hidden, the so-called undercoat. This is where a carder/rake will come in handy: it smoothes the surface fur, removing the dead one, and the excess undercoat, which is the fur that the cat would otherwise lick and swallow. The result is easy to imagine: less hair around the house and fewer hairballs in your cat’s stomach.

Depending on the type of fur of your cat, we recommend that you use:

SHORT-HAIRED CATS

Short, straight fur is easier to clean and brushing your cat once a week will suffice for this type. The combo brush is a great solution, as it is both a carder/rake and a soft brush at the same time, to detangle fur and remove excess undercoat, leaving the cat’s fur soft and shiny.

MEDIUM HAIR CATS

Medium-length hair requires more frequent care; these cats need to be brushed at least twice a week. The solution would be to use a carder/rake, designed for deep and firm action without irritating the cat’s skin. The result is correct and adequate regrowth.

LONG HAIRED CATS

Long-haired felines are wonderful to look at, but they need to be brushed every single day. It’s best to start with a wide-toothed comb, especially if your cat’s coat is slightly curly. Then switch to a carder/rake, to avoid the formation of felted fur.

For sensitive cats, or to gradually introduce the kitten to grooming, the best solutions are the brushes for carding with plastic teeth and rounded tips, much more delicate when applied to your friend’s skin.

Always make sure you brush your cat with absolute care, especially in delicate areas, such as the belly, ears, and head. And don’t forget to reward him with lots of pampering when the grooming session is over.
