Safari Rubber Curry Cat Brush
Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: It doesn't hold on to hair
When I compare all the brushes and combs I have purchased this is by far the best. I have a problem with my cat because he is a Siamese and I am always finding beige and white hairs all over the house. I pick out my favourite black cardigan and sit on the sofa in it only to find that within minutes it is covered in hairs! I regularly groom the cat in order to remove some of these before they end up being strewn around my house and it is also a good way of having some bonding time.
==Price and availability==
The curry comb can be bought online for around £3.50. It is also stocked in some pet shops although I bought this online from eBay.
The comb I have is red and made from rubber. There is a handle to hold or you can slip your fingers in and use the comb flat against your hand. This way you can control the comb much more and it is like you are stroking him. The teeth on the comb are plentiful, long and tightly knitted together. Sometime when we groom him, the cat likes to try an attack the comb and has bitten the teeth. There is a couple that have been broken off.
This comb is gentle because it bends when it exerts too much pressure on the cat. The best thing about it is it's ability to de hair the cat! Within a few good strokes the hairs start to come up and although the comb is not great at holding on to the hairs you can brush these away with your hand. Some do stay in the comb but on the whole they just come up after being loosened. The hairs clump together though due to the static caused by the rubber brush. This then means that you can brush them out and pick them up. In all honestly I tend to favour brushing him outside as it is hard to pick up all the loose fur.
The cat loves it. He comes over rubbing his head and teeth on it before flopping on his belly and letting my rub him all over. He has the louder purr so I know that he is really enjoying it. He is a really affectionate cat anyway but when I groom him he is my best friend, climbing all over me and wanting cuddles.
Back to the hair situation though, this is the best brush I have come across for removing hair. The static seems to pull the hair up to the surface. When we first used this it was a massive ball of fit that we took off him, the old brush was only scratching the surface.
In respect of quality, this is rather cheaply made but it works and it is the cheap rubbery feeling that the cat seems to adore. I can certainly recommend this brush as it does the job and the cat loves it. I always worry about him having hairballs so the less loose hairs the better!
