What Grooming Equipment Do I Need?

Different types of cats have different grooming needs. Longhairs and semi-longhairs need several pieces of equipment: a wide-toothed brush to get rid of tangles, a finer brush or comb for the undercoat, and an unused toothbrush for sensitive facial areas. Scissors should have rounded ends to avoid injury if your cat moves suddenly.

Shorthairs require a basic bristle brush, as well as a cloth like chamois, velvet, or silk to shine the coat after brushing. The unique coats of Devon and Cornish Rexes need tender care with a soft brush.
