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!!!

No specific brush recommendations, but if he's shedding a super-lot (and especially if his coat is rough, greasy or if he's scratching) I might think about looking at his diet. A lot of cats are allergic to common cat food ingredients like wheat, corn, soy or seafood, and a food allergy (or an allergy to some chemical in the house, like your laundry detergent or carpet cleaner, etc.) can cause skin and coat problems.

Of course, some cats are just sheddy.
