Rated 5 out of 5 by Oscar No more hair balls!
I recently bought this brush because my indoor cat started having issues with hair balls. I should note that I already owned a brush that I used regularly on him. I was amazed at how much fur came off the first time I used the FURminator! His coat is so much softer and shinier now. We've been hair-ball-free since we started using it!

I was searching for a brush or tool that would thin my cats hair because it was getting mats. The FURminator kept coming up but from it's name I thought it was going to be like the Flobie and you would have to connect a vacuum to it so I kept ignoring the sites. I finally clicked on one and watched a Youtube video and I couldn't wait to use it on my cats. IT'S AMAZING! The only vacuum you need is to collect the mass amounts of cat hair that the brush takes out.

This is an excellent find. It does a much better job than a brush, and with less fly away hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Emp134 Good brush, but not a miracle product
Reading the reviews and viewing pictures of massive balls of hair that people got off of their cat really swayed me into investing in a furminator. My cat has never liked being brushed, and I read quite a few reviews saying that this brush made their cat love grooming. She doesn't hate it, but she still will not hold still for long enough to get in a full brushing session. It seems to work well for the few strokes I can get in before she runs away, but it won't necessarily "change" your cat. I'm glad I did not buy this at full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunshine32 Great if the cat likes it!
For my larger male (around 18lbs) with thicker medium-short hair this thing is a GODSEND. He is incredibly lazy and doesn't groom himself well so it's wonderful because he will lay there all night and let me brush him - he loves it!
My 3 tiny girls (all around 6-8lbs) it doesn't work quite as well on. My smallest girl (around 6lbs) has very soft, thin, fine hair and I think it just scratched her too much as she bites and won't let me brush. The other 2 will tolerate for a couple minutes but they also have thinner finer hair so I think it digs in too much with them as well.
So if your cats like to be brushed, this thing is wonderful! If they're already hesitant about brushing, maybe try something else that's a little gentler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnieB A great find
We have an ancient cat that can't groom herself anymore and the fine metal comb we were using just pulled at the tangles. We were cutting them out. During a regular vet visit, the vet tech demonstrated the Furminator, which thins out the hair and tangles much more efficiently and with less aggravation for puss. The young lady told us we could get it online to save money. We received it in just two days and it really makes it much easier to keep the cat tangle-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharal4 Love this, it has helped so much with the shedding.
A friend recommended this for our cats. It really has helped with all the shedding from our four cats. I am hopeful this will also reduce the amount of hairballs we have been contending with. So far, so good!!!!
