Dear Kitties,
My Auntie has a beautiful Turkish Angora rescue. She is having trouble with the shedding, and asked what grooming products anyone can recommend?

Thanks,

Tabifa and Family

What does Auntie feed the Turkish Angora? Excessive shedding, which
they shouldn't be doing this early, and TA's only require combing a
couple times a week, is usually due to poor diet/nutrition. big grin

Assuming that she's a real Turkish Angora (who are very rare), and not just some long-haired cat the rescue service decided to call a "Turkish Angora," she should have silky, medium-length fur that, as Bumpurr says, just needs a fairly regular combing with a metal comb. The occasional bath will also help get rid of the dead fur. Angoras come in all colors, but are most typically white--and white fur shows up more than colored fur on clothes, etc., which might give the illusion that she's shedding excessively. However, feeding her premium food is always a good idea, and might be what she needs to help with the shedding--along with combing and the occasional bath.
