Brushes revisted

I was using a human brush for the cats and it worked well. Well it disappeared and I find that my other two human brushes don't work so well. The cats don't like anything too scratchy so that is why the rubber tipped brush worked well. It really grabbed the fur but ones that look very similar don't seem to do it. Suggestions please.

Check out this one:

I have one and it works great on my short haired kitties, they LOVE it too - like a kitty massage. You don't 'brush' with it, like you usually would. You make circles and generally just ruffle them up with it.

Don't use it for longhairs though, it pulls too much. Torri hates the darn thing, lol.

If you're looking for a longhaired kitty then I'd go with something like this:

The pin side is for a bit of detangling (although a comb does a way better job), and the soft bristle bit organizes the fur and works great on faces - they love to rub their faces on those things

When we had two long-haired cats, probably Persian mixes, they liked a boar-bristle human brush best. Not so good for getting mats out though, so we also used a shampoo massage brush like this:
Denman Shampoo Massage Brush D6
They hated slicker brushes, but perhaps I just didn't get the hang of using one properly.
My present pair are short hairs and love soft human brushes, especially a baby brush from the drugstore.
