Cat Grooming Tools: The Top 7
1. A Deshedding Tool
Every cat sheds. As a result, every cat lover is marked by the distinct traces of fur on shirts, pants, and coats ? as well as by a handy lint roller in their car or bag. If you love your cat but hate their hair, a good de-shedding tool is exactly what you need. Remove the mats, tangles, and burrs from your cat’s hair and simply comb the excess hair away.
Our Recommendation:?Shedding season coming up? Try the Furminator. They come in long and short hair variants.
2. Cat Brush
After a deshedding session, use a cat brush to remove excess hair. A lot of cat brushes are designed to feel nice to the cat, so it’s also an amazing way for you and your pet to bond during grooming sessions.

Some kitties do not like brushing. However, as we know, not brushing is not an option. What’s a concerned cat parent to do? Luckily, grooming gloves are now available on the market. These cat grooming tools are a brush in the form of gloves, so your cat will feel like it’s being petted instead of being brushed.

5. Waterless Cat Bath
After a full day outside, your cat can get dirty. However, since most cats aren’t fans of baths, the question is then how to get your pet clean again quickly. As most cats dislike baths and can become severely stressed at the prospect, a waterless cat bath may be the solution you’re looking for. The right spray shampoo will clean your cat and keep its fur moisturized and smelling nice.
Our Recommendation:?Vet’s Best No-Rinse Clean Waterless Cat Shampoo is an amazing smelling product infused with an all-natural blend of aloe vera, neem oil, and vitamin e.
6. Nail Clippers
If you have a cat, chances are you’re not a stranger to scratches. Cat’s nails are sharp, and they can easily hurt you or damage furniture and carpets. Fortunately, clipping a cat’s nails can cut down on some of these headaches.
While your best bet is to take your cat to a pet salon, if you’re more of the DIY type?be sure to read up on the basics of cat nail clipping.
Our Recommendation:?The?QuickFinder Nail Clipper for Cats is the perfect nail clipper for beginners. This clipper is equipped with a sensor that senses nerves and blood vessels in the nail. It has the same signal colors as a traffic light, red for stop, orange for caution, and green for go. Don’t forget to have styptic powder on hand, to disinfect wounds (just in case).
7. Flea Collar
Even the cleanest of cats can one day come home with fleas. Unfortunately, once fleas enter your home, you have to wash and disinfect essentially every article of clothing, every bed sheet, and every pillow. If you wan to prevent all of this work, simply use a flea repellent instead.
