This Safari Bristle Brush is great for all cat breeds. Regular grooming minimises shedding, reduces hair balls and improves the appearance of your cat's coats. Regular brushing stimulates the skin of your cat to release natural oils which gives them their natural shine. Begin brushing from the head, toward the tail and down the legs. For long haired breeds, separate the hair in sections, brushing each area until all mats and tangles have been removed. This brush is ideal for both long hair and short hair cats. For short hair breeds, use long strokes brushing in the direction that the hair grows as this is the most comfortable way for your cat to be brushed. Be sure your brush everywhere as you never know where the tangles may lie!
