|Isabelle--good question. Yes, before a show bath, I put a cover over the drain. In fact, I put two covers over the drain, one a disposable paper thing, and the other a plastic cover with small holes. That catches most of the hair. Still, I usually find hair in the hole of the bathtub (there's a kind of metal thingie in there that catches hair). Show baths don't involve only the right shampoos and rinses and the right drying techniques, but also this kind of preparation.
Actually, regarding shedding, I've found that my short haired Spike (generic tabby moggie) sheds more than anyone else. This is because his underfur seems to be more plentiful than with the Maine Coons. So he's the one who gets the Furminator and Zoom Groom, especially during shedding season in the spring. He'll tolerate a quick shower, but no go with the dryer; I've only washed him twice, both times after he lost control of his bladder on a trip to the vet. But he loves being Furminated and Zoom Groomed. Good old Spike.
