What kind of brush is best for my Persian?
A slicker brush and a stainless-steel comb are best for your Persian cat. By using the slicker brush, you will get most of the loose fur out first and following with a stainless-steel comb will get the fur that is not picked up with the slicker brush. When combing, start with the wider spaced tines and then go back over the area with the side of the comb where tines are closer together. Be sure to brush and comb all areas of the cat in order to avoid matts forming.
