Shedding is a natural process for cats to get rid of old or damaged fur. Most cats shed to some extent throughout the year.
Cats shed more during seasonal changes, typically in spring and fall, to adapt to temperature variations and sunlight exposure.
Cat breeds and fur types influence shedding patterns. Long-haired cats may shed more compared to short-haired breeds.
Poor nutrition and underlying health issues can lead to excessive shedding. Ensure a balanced diet and regular vet check-ups.
Effective grooming practices to reduce shedding, such as regular brushing, using deshedding tools
Stress and anxiety can contribute to excessive shedding in cats. Create a calming environment to reduce shedding triggers.
Fleas and parasites can cause skin irritation and increased shedding. Use preventive treatments to protect your cat.
