Combs are different. So different that the eyes of an uninitiated cat owner-run up – what to choose? And you need to choose what is right for your cat. The only difference is in the length of the coat and the presence/absence of undercoat. In addition, there are universal and body-specific combs. Choose the best brush for long haired cats with us.
SPARSE TOOTH COMB:
Suitable for the wool of any length except very short. She unravels tangles and matted hair, combs the cat while washing. Make sure the tines are well set and have blunt ends.
COMB WITH MEDIUM TEETH:
Also a versatile tool
Pocket option for travel. She alone does not have a cat to comb, but it is convenient to comb the stuck together “icicles” behind the ears, after sprinkling them with powder.
There are one-sided and two-sided – with protrusions of different “caliber”. Mittens do not comb the coat; they pull out hairs that are ready to fall out. They are very helpful during molting.
MASSAGE CUSHION WITH HANDLE – RUBBER SLICKER:
If you have a small hand, it will be inconvenient to use the mitten. The cushion on the handle is a tool with the same properties. Rubber lugs come in different heights and shapes – choose according to the length of your cat’s coat.
For short-haired cats
For short and fine coats. With its help, you can search for fleas and comb out dried dirt. Suitable for brushing specific areas of the body.
COMB WITH TIGHT, THICK TEETH:
Optimal for short-haired cats. Watch the condition of the teeth: if they are bent, they will begin to pull out the hair!
Combs for long-haired and semi-long-haired cats
COMB WITH ROTATING TEETH:
For cats with fluffy long hair. Glides easily over the coat and helps untangle tangles
COMB WITH TEETH OF DIFFERENT LENGTHS:
For long hair with a thick undercoat and dense awn. Lays the coat well.
RAKES WITH FIXED OR ROTATING TINES:
For long, fluffy coat. The rotating teeth run back and forth for easy contact with the cat’s skin, and the tips are neatly rounded. It is considered the most “non-violent” comb.
RUBBER BRUSH WITH METAL TEETH:
For massage, combing “suspensions” and trousers in long-haired cats. It is important that the teeth are blunt or have balls at the ends. The balls cover the sharp edges of the wire teeth, when they wear off, it’s time to change the brush.
NATURAL BRISTLE BRUSH WITH RUBBER PAD:
Suitable for any coat, but mainly for the collar, “suspension” and pants of long-haired cats. A good way to “comb” a puffy tail is to brush it against the fur in a circular direction from the base to the tip.
NATURAL BRISTLE BRUSH WITH NYLON:
Nylon gives the tufts of bristles a stiffness and this brush can comb deeper than a regular bristle brush. Suitable for combing dry powder shampoo.
SLICKER, SHE’S A SLICKER:
The most brutal tool for cats. Remember: the bent teeth of the slicker have a strictly limited application: to raise the wool on the collar, pants and tail. It cannot be used constantly, since it tears out the undercoat, but does not comb the wool and even more tangles. Not suitable for short-haired – sharp teeth injure the skin. If possible, choose a slicker with blunt or ball-protected teeth.
For different lengths of wool, there are different lengths of teeth-blades. With a collar cutter, you need to comb the wool in the place of the collar, directing the blades down.
