Our Safari Cat Bristle Brush features a wooden handle and quality bristles that create a shiny coat for your cat. Regular grooming minimizes shedding, reduces hair balls and improves the appearance of your cat's coat. Begin brushing from the head, toward the tail and down the legs. For longhaired cats, separate the hair in sections, brushing each area until all mats and tangles have been removed. For shorthaired cats, use long strokes brushing in the direction of hair growth. Be sure to brush areas behind the ears, base of tail, abdomen and hind legs.
