Brushing and Combing Resistance

Hi folks,

I have a black and white cat and his shedding is getting out of control now that summer is on the way. He hates to be brushed and combed and whenever I brush him he bites and scratches my hands and draws blood. Mind you, Tux is NOT an agressive cat and he doesn't have any behavioral problems, the only thing he really hates is getting brushed, even though I'm not hurting him.

Now my question is: have any of you ever tried giving your cat a quarter of a crushed Gravol pill (I'd put it in his wet food) to calm them down before brushing? My vet told me to give him a quarter Gravol if he's going to be in the car for several hours, but I have never actually given him any. Does anyone know if this helps?

Cheers,
B
