FURminator Short Hair deShedding Edge For Cats, Small
Cat/Grooming/Brushes & Combs
Shedding is a problem most cats face and tends to be heaviest in early Spring and early Fall, but indoor cats often shed year-round. Up to 2/3 of the hair a cat sheds is ingested during self grooming, resulting in hairballs that are messy, stressful to the cat and the cause of potentially serious problems. Every loose hair brushed is one less to swallow.
Designed for use with coats shorter than 2 inches, reduces shedding up to 90%
Stainless steel deShedding edge reaches deep beneath your cat’s short topcoat to gently remove undercoat and loose hair, FURejector button cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease
Effectively reduces hairballs, keeping your cat healthier and happier, guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, rake or comb
Recommended by veterinarians to help prevent dangerous hairballs from developing
Patented technologies, designed by a groomer for professional results
Shedding—it seems like a losing battle that pet parents can never win. It's true that you'll never stop your precious furballs from shedding, but you can reduce the amount of hair that gets all over with the FURminator deShedding Tool. Designed by a professional groomer, this ingenious tool reaches beyond the topcoat to remove loose hair from the undercoat. It gently pulls away the dead hair without hurting your pet's skin or damaging the protective undercoat.
The Gentle Grooming Solution
When you can tell everywhere your pet's been just by the hair trail left behind, it's time for FURminator to step in. Their popular deShedding Tool won't scratch the skin, and you can even use it on the ears and tail. Instead of cutting the undercoat, it only removes the hair that's already loose. With 10-20 minute sessions just once or twice a week, you can reduce matting and bring out the coat's natural shine.
Less Hair, Less Work
FURminator deShedding Tools help you cut down on your vacuuming time by reducing your pets' shedding up to 90%. Believe it or not, the hair that you find all over the house—clinging to the furniture and your clothes, and hiding in corners with its "tumble-hair" buddies is mostly from your pet's undercoat. This hair gets trapped under the topcoat and then sheds pretty much everywhere—unless you have a handy FURminator!
The FURminator Advantage
There are tons of deshedding tools on the market, but the FURminator is recommended by vets and professional groomers worldwide because it gives real results. The stainless steel edge has special compact teeth that push through the topcoat and gently rake away loose hairs. A convenient FURejector button releases the hair from the tool so it doesn't build up on the deShedding edge. Plus, the easy-grip handle is comfortable for longer grooming sessions.
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
With cats, there's an extra benefit to using FURminator. As steadfast groomers, kitties constantly lick their fur. And because only a third of the hair they shed ends up on furniture and clothes, two-thirds gets ingested. That can cause yucky and uncomfortable hairballs, and can lead to serious health problems, too. Instead of medication, you can help prevent hairballs by using the FURminator regularly.

I am allergic to cats! (I also don't like them very much) However I couldn't see this cat with an amazing personality go back to the shelter so i reluctantly took her in. I was hoping this would reduce shedding and help with my allergies. IT DID!!!
I anxiously awaited this items arrival in the mail. When I got it I saw instant results. I put a sheet over my bed and pillows during the day so hair doesn't get on my pillows and bother me when I sleep. After using this I found very little hair on the sheet. There's barely hair around the house and even touching her isn't as bad! So happy i picked this up and its so much cheaper on Chewy than in the pet store like a $40 difference kind of cheaperI am allergic to cats!

Didn't know the small would be miniature
on Feb 10, 2018
This comb is perfect but 4/5 starts simply because the "sizing" wasn't included in the description. If I had known the "small" option was meant for cats as in kittens I would have gotten the large.
The small barely covers enough for a 1yo or full grown cat so it takes more brushing than I would've liked but for what it does it's amazing.
I got the comb for short hair and it really does get deep into the coat. My cat recently has started shedding A LOT and this seems to be doing the job getting a lot of the hair from the under coat since it doesn't sit on top.
definitely removes fur, but hard to brush her soft fur
on Feb 23, 2018
I've had great success with FURminator brushes with my pups and especially my labradors. However, using this on cats adds a layer of difficulty. It *does* remove more fur than my other brushes, but her fur and skin is so soft that it gets a little difficult. It requires more pressure than other brushes to work it's best and our kitty, Regina, gets impatient with that. She definitely prefers to be brushed with the other brushes that don't work as well because of this. I can brush her for 10 min with other brushes, whereas when I use the furminator I'm lucky if I get 30 seconds. Even with zero pressure!
She's a domestic short hair.
The right size works really good!

For a few years, I've had a Furminator that has worked pretty good, but I felt there must be something a little better. In looking for an updated one, I found they come in different sizes. Apparently I had a small, but for long haired cats. This one is a small for short haired cats. Even though some of my cats have longer fur than others, they are still considered short haired cats. This has worked so much better, and the cats are happier with it. I'm so glad I found it.
Nothing like it!

I have five cats, and one large dog. I have always wanted to try the Furminator but was hesitant because the pet stores had them for about $50 and I wasn't sure how well it would actually work. So glad I decided to order through chewy. Was more than half the price of other pet stores and it works like magic. Cats seem to really like it , one of my cats even follow me around when I stop to use it on another cat! The only thing you must be sure to do, is not over-comb the fur. One of my cats had two small balding areas on her back! Perhaps I pressed a little too hard I'm not sure. My cat never indicated that it bothered her one bit. I'm sure the hair will grow back very soon, but I know to be aI have five cats, and one large dog.

Sheds A Lot

My white cat Frank has a shedding problem. Gobs of white hair everywhere in my house. Saw this item in a retail store and it was considerably more expensive. Purchased on Chewy for a fraction of the price. Was skeptical but it really works! I brush my cat several times a week using this comb. He doesn't sit still for the recommended 20 minutes but even 10 minutes a few times a week does the trick. Would definitely recommend this product.
FURminator is the BEST
on Jan 20, 2018
I've been using a cat brush from a big box store and my newly adopted cat continued shedding (not a ton but I wanted something that I would minimize it before it became a problem). With the first stroke, the FURminator was magical. The fur was coming out in bundles and heaps until eventually there was no more loose hair. My cat loves the feeling and will let me do it while she sleeps, eats, plays! Very happy with the quality of the brush, and I like the way it looks and feels. If you want to reduce shedding, don't waste your time with anything else. Get the FURminator!
A little different than I thought.

This is an AWESOME tool. Both of my cats were unknowingly filled with tons of unnecessary hair. However, I am only giving a 4star because I feel the descriptions should be a little clearer because even though after long consideration I still received the wrong tool. I feel a better description option for each should be WIDE & NARROW instead of large and small - Just my thought, however, now I know the difference. Either way - it's still a great tool but maybe this will help you get the right one for your beloved pet.

i love this product. Used it for the first time on my long haired cat. If you so slowly , it will take away unwanted hair easily. I am sorry i didn't discover this sooner as i used to use a brush and comb and no matter how gentle i was, i would also run into a knot that would be hard to get rid of. this works great. my advice is to not overuse it tho. start slow because it does take off a lot of hair.

I really like it, my cat does not. I think it may be a little too rough for her, but it does a great job at getting hair. The only thing I don't like is towards the bottom of my cat, a bunch of fur gathers and sits there from what the brush brings down but doesn't pick up. It's a good brush though definitely one of the best.
