Pros: grabs a lot of hair, leaves the coat shiny, less hairballs
Cons: expensive, don't overbrush, cat is iffy about it, hair flies everywhere
I use the shorthair light purple Furminator brush on my longhair Maine Coon mix cat. I tried using the longhair dark purple version of the brush, but it didn't catch any hair. So I experimented with this one, and I'm glad I did. It catches a lot of hair, but the hair flies everywhere. You have to run your hand over the coat to catch all the loose hair. Some floats around on the ground. It gets messy. My cat doesn't like the feeling of the brush too much. I think it may be a little too much for her. She loves slicker brushes though. I think the Furminator drags more than brushes. Beware, do not overbrush because you can make your cat bald!
