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.
Shedding Solutions for Every Coat
Cat deShedding Tool
Choose from short or longhair tools for small or large cats
After searching for more than a decade for a quality grooming tool that could solve the problem of shedding, a professional groomer decided to design one herself. The result is the FURminator, a highly effective deShedding tool that quickly and easily removes loose hair from your pet's coat. Now there's a whole line of FURminator grooming products, from anti-itch shampoos to brushes and combs, and even nail grinders. Pet parents have put their trust in the FURminator line because these tools are made with quality, and they actually work.
Even though I made a mistake and somehow ordered the brush for short hair, instead of long hair, this brush is still a very good product. My cat will try to bite and catch other brushes, but happily rolls over to be brushed with this one. I do believe it is important to order the brush that is appropriate for the length of hair for your cat, as this one for short hair cannot brush off the hair adequately for really long haired cats. I used to have a short haired cat, and I can tell that this brush worked much better on her than from my current long haired-cat. So it matters which brush you buy to get the best result. This one is not the best for long haired-cats.

Best investment for your cat's coat
on Sep 18, 2017
I bought a small FURminator brush for my shorthaired cat Jupiter, and it's been a game changer! I thought I was getting a lot of fur off of him with a typical silicone brush, but the FURminator gets his undercoat and dead hair off of him easily. My cat is not a huge fan of being brushed (it overstimulates him) so I brush him when he's calm and only do so for about 5 minutes at a time.
The nice thing about this brush is you don't have to apply firm pressure at all for it to be effective. Just hold it at a 45-degree angle and gently run it through your cat's coat. It might seem expensive for a brush, but you won't regret it.
FURminator short hair edger

Our cat Ghost gets these little fur balls close to the skin on his back near his tail. He has very heavy shorter soft coat. Brushing hurts and this seems to gently remove them and then he enjoys being brushed. I only wish I had maybe gotten the larger one yet we have many brushes and this one works well for that issues. He likes being brushed again. The other two are younger and I slip this in during their belly rubs especially now that their coats are changing seasons.
I've tried everything! Furminator does the trick!
on Jun 26, 2017
My DSH cats are shedding like crazy like its going out of season literally! They're shedding their winter undercoats like mad. Every time we pet them along their bodies, we get some stray hairs come off every time. I sought to resolve that, and this furminator does the job finally! I've tried the slicker brush, fine comb, and a bristle brush, nothing worked like the furminator. I did a hour long session with both of them and the hair just came out and KEPT COMING. Even now after a few sessions, they still have more hair to shed. I was told to not overdo it, but I think the cats need it after so long!

I owned a brush similar to this one, but lost it. Finally gave up looking and found the "Furminator" on Chewy. The relatively high price is well worth it. Most cat brushes don't get to the under coat; this one does. The hair release button - the blue double-bump thing on the top of the brush, is unnecessary. It's easier to remove the hair from the brush using your hands.

i admit i had doubts about this product-our cat has thick "bear Hair"-i watched the video to make sure i did it right-her hair was matted badly along her back-i did a section at a time-due to cats temperament-thickness of mats-it worked!-think she got used to it because she feels better-now smooth nice hair-she enjoys it now-doesnt run when she sees FURminator
Wow! So Much Hair!

I admit that I was skeptical of this comb when I first heard of it. I brush my indoor, short-haired cat daily and I thought I was doing everything I could to reduce the shedding. However, he was still getting the occasional hair ball. Then I bought the Furminator. The amount of hair that comes off in each and every combing is nothing short of amazing.

This comb really gets the undercoat off. Works very well, and my cats allow me to use it on them long enough to get quite a bit of hair off. Leaves them shedding less on their backs, but they don't allow me to comb their tummy areas with this, unfortunately! Maybe I can work them up to it! I recommended this in the dog version to my dad for his pup.
best way to control cat's fur!
on Aug 9, 2017
This product gets so much more fur out of my cat's coat than a regular brush--that it's amazing. There is no comparison! I try to brush him at least 5 times a week and it dramatically cuts down on cat hair--and he does not get fur balls (that make him vomit). He also really seems to enjoy it. And then he gets his nightly treats!
Furminator for cats is great
on Jul 29, 2017
I bought a Cat furminator when they first came out and lost it after a couple of years of use. Was very bummed out. So glad to see this new and improved version at Chewy.com. My cats enjoy being groomed with it. Dead easy to use and loose cat hair all over the house is no longer an issue after using this product.
