did we comb with this comb?
I have one of the first ones and find it not particularly effective on my long haired cats.
The second comb is a combination flea comb - the narrow teeth trap fleas and you are able to comb them out of the coat and drown them in a cup of soapy water. I use this regularly even though the cats don't have fleas because they love the sensation of the teeth going through their coats and their skin. It is a great way to get rid of a lot of excess shedding fur, as well, but you have to be careful with long coated cats as it can pull if you reach a thick spot or a mat and hurt;
The third is a general brush and I use those too - especially for the long haired cats - who also adore being brushed. It is good for getting the shedding hair and the cats love how it feels around their chins and cheeks.
A hair brush designed for people is just as effective.
Hope this helps:-).
