Cat Brushes & Combs

A good cat brush goes a long way when it comes to cat grooming. A cat comb or brush not only de-mats your cat's coat and prevents tangles, but it also releases essential oils. There are several benefits to grooming your cat. Brushing your cat's coat helps distribute natural oils from his skin to his fur, helping to maintain skin and coat health. Frequent brushing can get to tangles before they turn into mats. Cat grooming gives you the opportunity to check for and catch parasites like ticks and fleas in your feline friend's fur before they become a major problem. Grooming also helps deepen the bond between you and your precious pet. The more hair you brush away from his coat, the less ends up on your floor or in his tiny body. The best brush for your cat depends on the length of his coat. Groom your kitty with the Four Paws Love Glove Grooming Mitt for Cats. Simply put on the mitten, and massage your pet to remove loose hair. The soft rubber nubs gently rid unwanted hair from your cat's coat. You can use the glove on your furniture as well, to pick up loose hair after grooming. De-shedding your cat is easier with the FURminator deShedding Edge tool. With two different models–one for short hair cats and another for long hair cats–you can de-shed your furry friend with ease. On Chewy you'll also find cat flea comb products to help you get rid of cat fleas and ticks while you wait for treatment to work. Groom your pretty kitty, and keep his coat shiny and healthy with the best cat brush from Chewy.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cat Brushes & Combs

Do cats like to be brushed?

Most cats like to be brushed and love the attention it involves, as well. Other felines, including those new to brushing, may take a while to warm up to the idea of being brushed. Start slowly and be sure to use a brush with gentle bristles to avoid spooking or causing discomfort to your cat.

How often should you brush your cat?

You should brush your cat once or more a day if she is a long-haired breed or a few times a week if she has shorter hair. During shedding season, or if someone in your house has allergies, you may need to brush your cat more often to keep shedding to a minimum. Some short-haired cats may only need to be brushed rarely, if at all. Talk to your vet or a grooming professional about the right amount of brushing for your cat if you are unsure.

What are the best cat brushes?

The best cat brushes will be easy for you to handle and gentle on your cat’s skin. They should effectively and quickly remove excess hair and tangles to help prevent feline discomfort and shedding throughout your home. Choose a cat brush style based on your cat’s coat type, as well. A slicker brush, de-matting comb or undercoat brush may be best for long-haired cats, while a simple bristle brush or grooming glove is often adequate for kitties with shorter, thinner coats.

How do you clean cat brushes?

Clean most cat brushes by removing hair by hand and washing with warm, soapy water regularly. Follow the instructions included with the particular cat brush you have, as different materials may warrant special care.
