I’ve been trying to find a comb or brush that will be effective with Gabby’s thick coat for awhile now. I’ve collected at least 6 different things, some of them fairly costly, all to no avail. While I was visiting Madame Purl I asked her to show me what she uses for the girls (two Himalayans like Gabby plus the new littlun, a calico Persian) as they have even thicker coats than the Gabster. I’ve never seen one like it in the pets stores or at the vet so I ordered one up from Amazon and hey presto, it works very nicely indeed. Thanks Mme Purl!
