Safari Cat Comb Review

| May 6, 2014 | 12 Comments

Safari Cat Comb and CharlieWe received the Safari cat comb with a couple of their flea combs.  We just reviewed one of the two flea combs last week.  This cat comb is a great cat grooming tool to have around when you want to just comb something out.

Charlie and Trigg hate being combed – but this one was OK for them on their manes.  You can see how Charlie does with it in the final review video below – I usually use two hands when I comb kitties, but when I am using one to hold the camera, I am limited in what I can do.

I really like this cat comb.  I keep it in my kitchen to quickly brush through Charlie and Trigg’s manes.  So it works great on long haired coats like Charlie and Trigg’s, but also claims to be great with short haired cats too.  As with any cat comb or brush, I used it to brush my hair to see how much it hurt or not.  It has smooth, rounded teeth, so it didn’t hurt, other than when it pulled my hair! It would be a great comb for scratching an itch – think back scratcher!

I also liked that I saw it in my vet’s office.  My vet is a cat only vet and has been operational for over 30 years, so my guess is that she knows a thing or two about cat combs.

This is definitely one of the products that we have reviewed that will be staying in my home for the rest of whatever!  I do like this one a lot.

You can pick up the Safari Cat Comb on Amazon for $8.42.

Here is our arrival video:

And our final review video:

We received the Safari Cat Comb by Coastal Pet Products for review from the manufacturer.  Receiving the free product did not influence this post.

    charlie was being so good. i think he liked it, he sort of pretended that he didn’t with the tail thing but he knew he was looking fabbbbulous !! so cute!

    I have this comb and have been using it for many years on several of my cats. It does a great job of removing hair that will be shed. I always show the cat the amount of hair that I have removed and let him know that the “torture” he just endured has likely saved him from swallowing all of that hair! All kidding aside, it’s a great comb. Very effective.

  3. Hi, Jenny!

    Another great review! YAY! Lurved the videos, of course! 🙂

    Don’t know if I’ll get this particular comb or not. I do have the flea comb on my Wish List for facial grooming (Pink Sugar’s face – not mine…lol). 🙂

    Thanks for the awesome info!

    Big hugs!

    Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

      if you have a brush you like, then it probably works just as well – although this one is supposed to be great for mats. i like using a comb over a brush for some reason.

      • We’ve been very lucky and haven’t encountered any matting with Pink Sugar’s coat yet. But, now that I’ve said this….well, Murphy’s Law and all that you know….lol 🙂

        I have added this to my wish list for that very reason. When I get the Safari Flea Comb I’ll also get this brush. I’ll let you know when I do and how they work for us.

        Thanks, Jenny!

    I bought one of these from just seeing it on your arrival video! It’s great for getting mats out of Andy’s mane hair, which is very fine and mats easily. Emily enjoys getting combed with it as long as I don’t pull too hard an she’s in the mood for it. Just like Deidre I always show them all the hair I get off of them so they can be impressed!

    Another great recommendation!

    • Jenny says:

      cool! i am glad to hear you liked it just from the arrival video. yes, i always let them smell the hair i pull off the comb when i am done – should have gotten this on film, but think i have in the past?

  5. I use to have one of those brushes for my two mixed bred cats–Star and Saphira, but I lost it.

    I like how you let Charlie hold and fight with the comb (ok, you stuck it in his fur and he grabbed it, but the end result was the same). I wonder if this helps with grooming, giving the cat some control over the situation? Just like looking at and sniffing the comb afterward.

    I also like the idea of putting the comb in an easy accessible place so that you can take some quick swipes when a cat wanders by. I don’t have to do that with Izzy and Jolie. Izzy loves to be brushed, and Jolie sits close by, always shocked, shocked, I tell you, when I grab her after I’m done with Iz, and brush both her fur and her teeth. I have her meds ready, too, plus a syringe chaser. You’d think after nearly 20 years she’d catch on.

    • Jenny says:

      i have no idea, i think it’s strange that both of my cats hate brushing. rags liked it, caymus and murphy like it. i just got stuck with two cats that hate being groomed.

      ha ha ha on jolie being shocked every time!
