I know why they are asking this, of course. Once upon a time, I made the HUGE mistake of brushing my parents’ cat, Caymus, with the Furminator and completely ruined the LOOK of his coat.
Yes, that’s right. I didn’t ruin Caymus’s coat – but I ruined the look of it. Why? The Furminator has razor blades that cut the fur and remove even the healthy hair – so you are left with a dull-looking coat. It does the job of getting rid of fur, but it does more than you want it to.
That’s why I like a brush like the Equigroomer – it does not cut the fur – instead, it pulls out the dead stuff. An extra bonus is that my Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg, who hate to be groomed, will tolerate the Equigroomer for quite a while. With the Equigroomer, they’ll tolerate it for 5-10 minutes vs. 5-10 seconds with other combs or brushes.
