Hello everyone! I just bought the THIRD useless brush at petsmart so I thought I would ask for help this time. I have a short haired siamese/tabby mix with an incredibly thick coat. He sheds ALL of the time. I just pet him once and my hand is covered in fur. I could brush him for hours and it doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm thinking about buying a steel brush. Does anyone have any recommendations for a great de-shedding tool? I'm trying to shop for one on amazon and so far I've seen on called the 'furminator' that seems to have gotten great reviews. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!!!

Rubber gloves. Works on not only my two very long-haired torbies, but my smooth tabby and my MIL's Jack Russell.

I just slip on the gloves, and smooth each one from head to tail a few times until less/no hair is coming off them, and I do that once a week in non-shedding months, up to four times a week/every second day in shedding months. If you have the luxury of doing it outside, I would (but my kitties are strictly indoor cats).

Oh, and getting fur on your hands after petting any cat is perfectly normal. I have yet to meet any cat who does not release even some fur on contact :/
