I have two indoor cats and both have medium/long hair. My first cat, Heyzeus, I have never had to brush. He maintains his long coat beautifully on his own and his shedding is quite minimal. A twice a month bath usually kept shedding to almost nonexistant.Then came Little Fella... he is adorable but sheds like mad. I am HIGHLY allergic to cats so he was becoming quite the problem child. No matter what new and fancy brushes I bought nothing was working. There were fur balls everywhere, fur all over my clothing, my bedding, and in the air - despite vacuuming. Every time I would brush him I would only get a wee bit of fur out. It was disheartening and I was not sure what to do.I had seen a few friends who had Furminators and they RAVED about them. I finally decided to buy one and it is one of the bets cat related decisions I have ever made! Upon the first grooming I was able to get a full plastic grocery bag of hair off of Little Fella and I could tell he immediately felt better. I groomed him every day for a week straight, and now only groom him once to twice a week. The difference is massive. No more cat hair all over the place! No more cat hair on my clothes and furniture! No more fur balls! No more cat hair in the air and in my lungs! I have been able to go down to vacuuming once a week. It is wonderful! Little Fella definitely feels better and he no longer gets any matts. The Furminator was able to successfully remove his old undercoat and it has made all of the difference.One thing I think I should mention - Little Fella used to love being groomed by those brushes that only groomed the top coat. He thought those were swell. When I first started grooming him with the Furminator he HATED it. It pulled at his undercoat and he didn't like that, despite it being necessary. I took my time and was courteous of the fact that it was uncomfortable and I went slowly. Now that most of that thick, dead undercoat is gone he LOVES the Furminator and will roll over to let me groom his tummy as well. So, if at first your kitty doesn't like it, don't give up! Make it as good of an experience as possible for your cat and keep at it. It is so worth it in the end.Thank you Furminator! Me, Heyzeus, and Little Fella thank you!

I purchased this product after reading the great reviews. I bought one for my long haired cat and one for my short haired cat. I used it on my long haired cat first and brushed him for about 10 minutes all over his body. He really enjoyed the brushing and purred as I was doing it. A LOT of fur came out. I discontinued the brushing after I noticed I had given him a bald spot on his back! I thought that this brush only removed loose hairs like the other brush I had always used on him. This can't possibly be so if brushing gives the cat bald spots. It must rip the hair at the root, but leaving the root in. After looking online, I found many more reviews of these brushes making cats bald. My cat has not been shedding very much since he was brushed, but I will not be using it again for fear of damaging my cats' coats.

Best Shedding comb ever!
from Long Island, NY
I bought this comb 4 days ago after reading about it on a vet website when trying to find a solution to our hair ball problem. We have a male Russian Blue with a sensitive stomach that is having a terrible time this summer with hair balls. After being checked by the vet to make sure there was no medical problem, we changed from dry food to wet food, but our female Bombay prefers dry so now we have grain free for her because he likes to steal her food. Now neither one brings up food with their hair balls which is an improvement in itself. However hair balls remained a problem with our Blue throwing up multiple times a day. We use to sit and watch him rip his hair out. As a former grooming tech, I have several combs and brushes. We tried each one brushing several times daily and his hair was all over the house. Then 5 days ago I read about the FURminator. The next day hubby went to a local pet store and they had it! He brought it home and we were leary after reading some of the reviews here so we started out slow with both cats. They loved it! In 4 days we have enough hair for 3 cats from our Blue and maybe 1 1/2 cats worth from our Bombay. How is this possible when they were brushed daily? Their coats are beautiful and shiny. Knock on wood no hair balls in two days. Thank you soooo much! We are believers and will recommend this comb to every pet owner we know!

I bought this on the recommendation of a friend. The first time I used it, I needed to take my cats outside for the brushing - the fur was flying! Now I use it once a week, and the amount of hair on my furniture has diminished significantly.

The best brush ever!
from New York, NY
Compared with normal brushes, the furminator does such a better job with cat fur, and is easier to clean.

EXCEPTIONALLY great product!!!
from Phoenix, AZ
This is THE BEST cat grooming product I have EVER purchased in my entire life! My female Maine Coon cat is absolutely gorgeous due to the FURminator! I am completely amazed at how truly sleek and shiny her coat is after using the FURminator on her. It has drastically reduced the floating fur-balls in my home. She has always hated being brushed before but she now loves it, which makes my life so much easier! My only regret is that I wasn't aware of the FURminator until 3 weeks ago. THANK YOU for such a remarkable product! KUDOS for a job WELL DONE!!!

Absolutely love it!
from Boston, MA
The furminator works so well on my cats. I'm always amazed at how much fur it gets. It doesn't hurt them at all.
So Much Better
from San Jose, CA, United States
We have a 3 y/o maine coon. He takes great care of his coat and we do our part to help him out. He has never liked the wire brush (would bite and run) and it has become less effective over the last year. When he started having hairballs last month we bought a FURminator. He LOVES this brush! When I pick it up, he comes right over and lays down. He'll even roll over so I can do his tummy. We haven't had another hairball. Plus, vacuuming picked up 1/4 the fur I usually do. Cat and human approved. Thank you!

The Metal Comb and Wire Brush Were Much Better!
from Springfield, MA, United States
I guess there's a special way to use this thing, because there's now fluffy, fly-away hair from my cats! Before, the hair would stay in the brush or comb and I'd just put it into the garbage. With the FURminator, the hair doesn't stay in the comb, but produces fluffy, fly-away type hair that stays on the surface of the cats, eventually flying all over the place and getting into everything (bed, clothing, etc.). Until someone shows me how to use it correctly, I sadly have to say that it's causing a huge mess that the regular comb and brush were not causing before! VERY disappointed!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
