Dead serious...... I am a finicky home owner with three, large, long haired indoor only male cats, and one outdoor only long haired tortie female . Two of the males are white with huge coats, the other male is a black and white tuxedo. I know hair.
A Zoom Groom and a grey hound comb. Go over them with the Zoom Groom until the large wads of hair slows down, and then finish with the fine toothed side of a greyhound comb.
I came to this after A LOT of experimentation and research about cat grooming. It works very well for me.
Others will mention a furminator, which I highly disapprove of, but many like it. That is another option.
Grooming is truly the only way to get it under control. I wish there were a pill, or a magic elixir, but there isn't any other healthy alternative that works
. If there were, I would use that and
the Zoom Groom.
p.s. Get a Dyson. It's worth it.
