The Cat's Meow!
I have a small, semi-feral, long-haired cat who was extremely difficult to groom. She would bite at my hand when I tried to brush her or use my older rake. The handle on the FURminator rake is long enough that when I combed her, she couldn't get her teeth into me. Surprise! After she got used to being combed, she loves it! It is now a morning ritual and the daily episodes of throwing up huge hair balls are a thing of the past. My other cats like it, too, and actually sit still to be "raked." I have several artificial joints in my right hand and find the FURminator is easier on my hand than a regular brush/comb. Also, the cover for the teeth eliminates nasty under-the-nail sticks.

Very effective and well tolerated by my cat!
My long haired cat does not like to be combed, at least that's what I thought! He will come over to me to be combed when I use the rake, and it removes a lot of loose hair. Great purchase!

This product works great on mats
I already have the furminator and I love it so when I saw this was on sale I thought I would give it a try. This comb works great on removing mats from my two ragdolls. I love it and so do they. Comb is very comfortable to use and the round rotating teeth are gentle on my cats fur while effectively removing mats. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rake Works Incredibly Well
Believe all to positive reviews. These are worth the investment! The Rake does an amazing job of removing excessive fur from my Maine Coon. He hated to be brushed, but now loves being raked. I do not pretend to understand why this works so much better than a slicker, but is does. I removed a huge handful of fur on the first use. Now he purrs while being groomed. He has significantly fewer mats, his coat is softer, and there is substantially less fur on the floors. Everyone wins.
