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.
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.
