Grooming is important for all pets but especially so for cats who, as a species, are likely to swallow excess hair and develop hairballs. The Furminator DeShedding Tool can be a great help in reducing the amount of loose hair in your cat’s coat and regular use can lessen the chances that your cat will develop hairballs. The Furminator can also help prevent tangles and mats from forming in your cat’s hair coat. These tangles and mats can become uncomfortable for your cat as they twist and pull at his skin.

There are several models of Furminator DeShedding Tools made for cats and you will want to choose the type that best fits your cat. There are Furminators for both long- and short-haired cats and the choice is further broken down based on your cat’s weight.
Furminator for Cats – Product Evaluation
In my opinion, the Furminator DeShedding Tool is a grooming aid that is indispensable for any cat owner.
Hairballs, though often only an inconvenience when your cat vomits one of them, can also become a serious health threat for your cat. These hairballs can sometimes cause intestinal obstructions that may require surgery to remove. Preventing hairballs from occurring in the first place is your best defense to keep your cat safe from these health issues. The Furminator tool is very good at removing the loose hair in your cat’s coat that can cause hairballs.
I use a Furminator on my cats religiously, usually every day or every other day. I am always surprised at the amount of hair that each grooming session removes. This is hair that, if not removed, my cats would be swallowing as they groomed themselves.
My mother recently adopted a cat and was using a generic type cat comb for her. She felt that the comb was doing an adequate job removing lose hair and keeping her cat’s coat free of tangles. However, when we purchased a Furminator for her, my mother was quite shocked at the amount of hair that the Furminator removed that was left behind by the other comb. After the first use, she became a believer in the product as well.
