Furminator for Cats – Editor’s Choice
This is one of the most popular deshedding tools for cats – and it is up there at the top for all the right reasons: this grooming tool will reduce up to 90% of the shedding, with its long deShedding edge reaching deep beneath your cat’s long topcoat to remove the hair.
It also comes with an easy to use FURejector button that easily cleans the hair from your tool, so you can start over whenever you want to.
The even better news is that the company producing it has updated the classic model with a new and improved one that features skin guard glides to ensure maximum safety for your pet during grooming, as well as a curved design of the teeth for increased comfort.
It not only looks better (in my opinion) but also has a fully ergonomic handle, making even the longer grooming sessions a pleasure for the owner as well. This is basically the one grooming tool that both your cat and yourself will love.
Not only that it keeps the house clean, but also prevents the formation of hairballs since fewer hairs will be consumed by the cat during self-grooming. So all in all, the perfect choice in our opinion.
The company still sells the classic versions if you want them instead – just make sure that you order the one that’s better suited for the length of your cat’s hair (long or short) following the link below
Pet Neat’s Pet Grooming Brush
At the moment of writing this article, Pet Neat’s deshedding tool for cats is the number one best selling cat shedding tool on Amazon and I am sure that says a lot about its high quality – especially since it has an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 based on over 5,500 ratings.
It is the only product (or at least the only that we know of) that claims to reduce shedding by up to 95% (while all the other products offer an “up to 90%” guarantee).
It is easy to hold, easy to use and works great with all types of hair, be it short or long. The product itself is extremely durable and looks good, while helping your pet cat feel better each day (although you can only use it twice per week and still see great results).
And even though it has a much simpler design than the Furminator above, it still gets the job done and that’s all that matters in the end. So you can definitely get this one if you like it better.
DakPets Deshedding Tool
Also known as the FURblaster, this is another really solid option for those looking for a great deshedding tool. This one comes with the added bonus of being universal, meaning that you can use it on dogs and cats alike (although, truth be told, they all can be used like this).
This one comes in various colors: blue, hot pink and yellow, so if you want to add some style or a blast of color, you have the chance to do so. It’s also easy to store, comfortable to use and extremely durable.
The DakPets Deshedding Tool also comes with a great rating on Amazon: a 4.6 rating out of a maximum of 5 from over 20,000 reviews. In other words, it’s absolutely amazing, as the people using it note in their reviews which are available below.
With shedding reduction of up to 90% when used for as little as 10 minutes, this is indeed a tool that you will love a lot. And your cat too!
Now that you know which are the top 3 best deshedding tools for cats, you are ready for a super happy pet and, also very important, a clean house/car/carpet!
