Choosing the Right Grooming ToolsPublished March 3, 2009
Cat grooming combs should be coated in Teflon, with inch-long teeth and a tear-shaped handle. The tips of the teeth should be blunt. Most combs come in three teeth spacings: wide (or coarse), medium, and fine; most cats will take a medium or fine-spaced comb. Claw-trimmers, too, must be specifically designed for a cat. Unlike a dog's, a cat's nails are flat, curved, and pointed, and lie atop toe pads. The tools for each pet are not interchangeable.
Shop wisely, and use your grooming tools to keep your cat looking its best year round.
