I would recommend Groomers Goop. You work it into the coat dry and rinse out.

Then I would follow with blue Dawn dishwashing liquid (dilute about 50/50 with water) to draw out more oil/grease and rinse well.

Follow with your preferred cat shampoo and rinse really well. Rinse for a couple minutes after you think you have all the soap out. Any soap inadvertently left will make the coat greasy or clumpy.

I also like a product called Jerob anti-stat conditioning and detangling spray. You only need a couple spritzes on a chamois and wipe the coat down - it will eliminate any static.

It will take a little experimenting though to find out what works best for your cat's coat.

Linus has said it all. The bottom line is that you have to figure out what works for YOUR cat. I have found that Groomer's Goop and the Jerob products work best for my Maine Coons--only problem is that Jerob is not odorless, which bothers both Harvey and me. You have to sort of fiddle around until you find what suits your cat. Every cat is different.
