My cat actually LOVES to be Furminated. I bring that thing out, and he comes running and lies right down. It's the weirdest thing. And I always seem to get enough fur out of him to knit a whole other cat out of. The best bit is that he stops shedding for a couple of weeks after I go over him thoroughly.
I'd tried 1,000 different brushes and combs and stuff because my cat sheds like CRAZY. My vet recommended this Furminator, and I thought, for that amount of money, that better be one amazing brush. They had a satisfaction-or-money-back offer going at the time, so I took a chance. Woo!
Then when Huey's winter coat started coming in, I thought, oh boy, all that is going to come back out at some point. My trainer showed me a shedding blade, but then I remembered that they made Furminators for horses too.
It sounds like I will KNOW when it is the right time to use it! Thank you all!
