Best Untangler Tools for Grooming Long Hair Cat Coats

Cats with long hair require frequent grooming to keep mats from forming.

  1. Daily brushing is a must: it may seem excessive, but when it comes to long-haired cats, they need this routine. Untangler T906PRO Brush is recommended.  Even cats with medium-long fur can benefit from your focused attention on the coat and on them! You will notice a distinct difference in the amount of hair that ends up on the floor and furniture, and your cat’s coat will shine.
  2. Ease your cat into a brushing routine:  It takes a while for kitty’s and cats to acclimate to brushing. Keep brushing sessions short and stop brushing if your cat is noticeably uncomfortable. Try again later.
  3. Choose a time when your cat is relaxed – After your cat wakes up from a nap, eats their meal, or is self-grooming are some of the best times to groom.  Remember to give them treats for the effort.
  4. Choose your tools: To effectively remove loose and dead fur from the coat, we recommend either The Untangler T906PRO or Untangler Short Handle T906Brush both with 40 rotating stainless-steel.  
  5. Brush the tail: After you comb the body, switch to a brush that’s designed for cats. Brush your cat’s tail from the base out; pay careful attention not to pull on the fur.
  6. Detangle tight mats with a comb:  Untangler T735SS Super Groom II  with narrow-spaced teeth, Untangler 5″ T516KC or Untangler 7″ Dual-Spaced Comb T716KC are excellent tools,  designed for gentle feline care and endorsed by Vets. Mats can lead to skin problems when left unmanaged. Use a spray-on conditioner for cats to help loosen the tangles.  Untangler combs are recommended to gently wiggle out tangles before brushing.

Cat Health

Cats are adept self-groomers when they are in good health, but there may be occasions that they need a bath.  If you notice that your long-haired cat has issues with their fur, such as hair loss, redness of skin, dull or dry coat, etc. then health issues might be the problem. Schedule an appointment with your Vet so the issue can be diagnosed and addressed.  

With the right tools and techniques, you can reduce shedding, and your furry friend will have a healthy and amazing coat that shines.

1. Use a wide-tooth brush to brush your cat’s fur. Untangler T906PRO Brush

Using a wide-tooth brush to groom your long-haired cat, brush every area of the cat’s fur. Be sure to get their head, back, sides, butt, and belly, and especially the areas where their hair is longest. When brushing your cat’s belly, remember that they’re extra sensitive, so soften your brush strokes.

The Untangler T906PRO Brush with silky smooth rotating teeth is extremely gentle to Cats and Kittens.  Each pin has smooth rounded tips and rotates preventing hair from pulling on the tender skin.

Note: you will likely know by this step whether or not your kitty is going to put up with being brushed or not. Be sure to give them a little extra love after brushing.

2. Remove mats with fine spaced comb. Untangler T516KC

When encountering matted hair, stop to clear the mat. Use a small amount of cornstarch to rub the tight mat or spray with mat remover, then use the Untangler T516Kat Comb to clear the mat.  Hold the mat at the skin level and work from the hair tip toward the skin.

Clippers and other shaving devices should only be used if there are no other options. Some cats with extra thick fur will deal with this more regularly than others. It’s also common practice shave mats off, and while the process is fairly straightforward, you must be extra careful not to knick your cat’s skin because it can really hurt them. Brushing your Cat frequently significantly prevents mat formation.

3. Use a fine-tooth comb to further brush your cat’s fur. Untangler T716KC, T735SS or T777PX

Use a fine-tooth comb to clear remaining loose hair and comb the entire body. Untangler 716KC or Untangler T735SS are excellent tools. Some Cat owners prefer using Untangler T777PX with dual spaced extra-long teeth for their cats with extra thick/long hair.  The Untangler T777PX is a heavy comb, but the extra-long teeth easily reach deep to the skin to clear loose hair. 

4. Final Brushing: Final grooming step is an overall Brushing. Doing a final brushing stimulates natural oils production in your cat’s  skin and distributes the oils over their entire coat giving sheen to the coat and extra softness to the touch.

Daily Tips:   Daily Brushing is key:  Soft Finger hand held Rubberized Brush.  Untangler T712BC

Quick daily brushing with Untangler 31 deep soft finger hand brush is a bit more effective in removing some of those extra loose hairs. Fun to use, anytime Hand Brush is massaging to your cats skin.  Brush while sitting outside or when your Kitty is relaxing on your lap.  It’s soothing and cleansing and comforting.

Making it a week-to-week habit to groom your long-haired cat will drastically improve their quality of life, and it’s also just a good excuse for some bonding time with your cat!

Groomers are a wonderful back up for grooming, but save yourself some time and money by doing these things at home! You and your cat won’t have to travel, and you can simply get into the habit yourself, based on your cats’ needs. It relaxes both you and your Cat!
