I shed a lot, too! In the springtime, especially!

Mommy's pretty much just gotten used to hair being everywhere and in everything.

Some cats have had luck with the Furminator.

My human friend recently read that by spritzing olive oil on my cat food it helps me to shed less. One reason cats can shed is because they aren't getting enough healthy fats in their diet. Usually, the shedding is accompanied by greasy, oily, or flaky skin. The olive oil is used instead of margarine or butter because it is a healthier form of fat and also is assosiated with many health benefits. It seams to work and I love the taste!

I'm long haired and I still shed alot, but it's not as bad as it could be. I think it's because my mom and dad feed me "hairball control" food... it has plant fibres in it, and helps keep the shedding under control. Plus, no hairballs!

Did that stuff from Pet Smart work for Lucy, Zory? I get dandruff, too, and mommy's not sure what to do. We've switched to a higher quality food, mommy combs and brushes me constantly, and she's started giving me Nutrimalt because it's supposed to be good for skin and coat. So far, we haven't noticed a difference. She tried giving me fish oil, but I don't like it.

Olive oil? Hmm...there's an idea! I love olive oil! Mommy puts it on bread and sometimes she gives me a little taste and it's yummy! I'm not sure I need the extra calories, though. *blushes*

Oh Beatrice! You are a beautiful kitty! The great thing about the calories and the fats from olive oil is that they are the healthiest way to get them. In fact some human scientists have been studying Olive oil and the link between longevity and it actually helps lower the risk of heart disease by getting rid of the "bad cholesterol". there are countless health benifits! Ok, now I'm sounding like an OLIVE OIL COMMERCIAL! MOL! but really, check it out sometime. It's very healthy. My vet recommended it and my human friends like the idea of less shedding and the added bonus of a longer living healthier ME!

Live Long and Prospurr! Ginger Cat
