I have a himilayan that I comb regularly. Lately, I have been finding black "flakes" in the brush after combing him. I have no idea what it is. Does anyone have any idea what I am referring too? Anyone else ever experience this?

the only thing i can thing of are fleas. They leave behind black flakes on the animals there on. My cat, not the one i have now, she had sand fleas pretty bad when we lived in FL. when we combed her she had black flakes in her fur. but i would think that if your kitty had fleas, you would know it. Just because your animal has fleas doesn't mean that they will stay just on them.

I agree they must be fleas. Try to treat them with shampoos or you can go to the vet for a treatment. You can try Frontline or Advocate for flea control.
