SafariŽ Soft Slicker
Frequent brushing is needed for cats to help prevent hairballs and maintain their coat's natural luster. Groom shorthaired cats every few days. Longhaired cats need to be brushed daily - especially during shedding periods. Watch for mats behind the ears, on chest and stomach, and on hind Iegs. These are the areas that cats clean the least. Brush against the direction of hair growth. For longhaired cats, use flowing, upward strokes, separating the hair as necessary. Do not remove too much hair at one time. It is best to maintain a regular schedule of grooming vs. removing too much hair during an individual grooming session.
After brushing, groom the entire coat with a Safari cat comb. (A Safari flea comb can also be used.) This added step will remove any remaining loose fur and massage the skin, further promoting the health of your cat's coat.
Caution: The undercoat is shed during spring and grows again in the fall. During this time period, use only a Safari cat comb or brush to avoid thinning the coat too much.
