I have a 3 year-old boy Seal Lynx Point Snow Bengal and he sheds like nobodies business. I've tried the furminator but I'm actually afraid to use it so much because of how much fur it takes off of him. Despite so much shedding he has 0 bald spots. I vacuum twice a day with a Dyson Allergy vacuum. Even after brushing him you can rub your hand down his back and it be full of hair. He eats Blue Buffalo Wild food and is in great health otherwise. I've no idea what to do. I spend most of my days long rolling and vacuuming.

The majority of bengals do not shed excessively, but there are exceptions to everything. Mine develops a winter coat as he has an outdoor enclosure and gets two walks a day. In the spring he does shed the winter coat. If it is approaching winter where you are and the kitty is still shedding and it's not a cashmere or long-haired bengal, then you may want to check with your vet to see if there is a skin condition that could be causing this. There are people who believe bengals don't shed at all, so when there is hair around, they get concerned. It's very common and what you may think is a lot of fur coming off, may not be excessive at all, especially if you cannot find any bald spots or skin irritation.
