Love this rake! I have 2 long haired kitties that hate to be groomed and wiggle away as soon as they can, but I thought I would try the Furminator rake, finishing comb and pin brush for long haired cats on them. I couldn't believe how they liked them, rolling over so I could brush and comb their bellies!! My babies are beautiful with fluffy coats and no mats. The pins are wider in diameter than my older slicker brushes and are gentle on their skin. When I tested it on the back of my hand, it felt nice and didn't irritate. I'm really happy with the Furminator grooming tools I bought.

I have the long hair rake and it is amazing how much loose hair it picks up. Even on my short hair cat, but he doesn't shed nearly as much!

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!
