Safari Cat Shedding Comb Product Review Update – 4 Years Later!

Post Published on February 20, 2018 | Last Updated on March 9, 2018 by Jenny

Here’s a staple in our (almost) every day life – the Safari Cat Shedding Comb – a pet comb that has smooth rounded teeth of alternating lengths and a wooden handle.

Safari® Cat Shedding Comb

I have come to love the Safari Cat Comb more than I did when we first reviewed it in May 2014. It is usually always on my kitchen counter, unless someone is coming over (then I put it in a drawer). Since it is winter right now, it is the perfect comb to grab and get those parts of their manes that are clumped together. It breaks through those instantly and doesn’t seem to bother the cats. Charlie actually extends his neck and chin for me to get all those areas (showing he enjoys it) – which is odd for a cat that absolutely hates being groomed. While I would love to run the comb over his entire body, he doesn’t really allow that or like it. But sometimes, I win. Sometimes, I make sure I win like this cluster of mats I found on his chest the other day (hiding between his two front legs – I had no idea they were there and they were bad!) – I tackled them with this comb. Finding those mats and tackling them reminded me to do an update about the Safari cat comb. It is one of my go-to cat brushes/combs on a daily basis.

It’s funny, people will sometimes ask me what’s my favorite cat brush – and I can never say just one, that would be as difficult as solving animal riddles.  There are different brushes and combs for different situations – and also for different cats.  Charlie and Trigg have very different textured coats and certain brushes work differently on Charlie’s than they do on Trigg’s.  However, this pet comb is most ideal for both of their manes and facial areas.  I also like it to brush their tails (they do not like that though).

Here’s a video from last summer that I took after I had combed both of them with the Safari Cat Comb outside.  I prefer to do most of my brushing outside, if I can – to provide hair for nests but to also keep it from flying around inside.

We received the Safari Cat Comb by Coastal Pet Products for review from the manufacturer almost 4 years ago. Receiving the free product did not influence this post.

    Hi, so you’re saying this is one of your favourite brushes. You mention, it’s best for their face, mane, and tail, is it not possible to use on their body? Or there are better combs for it you mean.

    Great post and video, Jenny! Always nice to have a positive follow-up for an awesome product that really works well!!! 🙂 <3

    So wish I could groom Miss PSB outside (have a yard or a deck that was "catified") to avoid all the flying floating fluffies that result from our grooming sessions…Oh, well. That's apartment living for ya! These tiny little French Balconies at our apartment complex are more for show an maybe a potted plant and decorations during the holidays. No room to stand or have it bear any really weight. 🙂 <3

    My fave grooming tools for Miss PSB are the EZ-Groomer (which she enjoys!), the Shed Monster (when she permits it) and she is still working on getting used to our newest tool (the Equi-Groomer). 🙂 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3

      isn’t it so funny how different the cats are and what they like – perfect example – mine don’t mind the equigroomer at all and want to kill me with the ez-groomer. that’s why i can’t ever just recommend one brush or comb for anyone.

    Jenny, I purchased this last summer from your review and use it every day on our Seal Point Mitted, Bobbie, who from the looks of Charlie has the same type of coat. We both love it! She comes to me after dinner every night for her “brushing” and purrs all the while. It does a terrific job and I highly recommend.

      YAY! I am glad you love it. I wish Charlie liked it for more than his mane – he doesn’t like me doing his whole body with it.
