I think with all cats -- just like humans -- you lose hair as you grow new hair. Raiden is not shedding at all right now and I don't find his hair all over the place. It's a seasonal thing for him. However, he sheds a lot less than any other cat I've ever had, including the stray that I returned to his home last Monday and is back at my house today! He's shedding up a storm.


I think diet has something to do with shedding. My last cat would only eat junk food and she shed all the time. Blondie and Grace eat pretty well and are young and healthy.

Hi I noticed you said it could be because of diet that he sheds so much. I bought the ferminator tool and comb him daily but sometimes even when I pet him he sheds a bit. What kind of diet were you referring to? Like what type off food and brand if you don't mind.

My last cat would only eat Fancy Feast grilled chicken or turkey with cheese. I know it was bad food to give her but she refused every other kind I brought home to her and she only weighed 5 pounds as a senior. She shed quite a bit but she had kidney disease. I vowed to never let my cats taste food that is not a healthy quality food so they will never know what they are missing. So far they are doing fine eating a premium cat food and they hardly shed, but they are under 2 years old. They do like to be brushed and come to me often for a light brushing so that helps I'm sure.

Just like a proper diet is great for human skin, it's the same with cats. A great diet will result in a beautiful coat.

Thanks for the info. I deffinayely went with top premium cat food. Btw the ferminator tool works wonders, he literally falls asleep when I comb him. And I got it at less than half the price on eBay.

I need to check the Ferminator out! Raiden's pelt is so short, you can't use a wire comb on him. I have something with rubber on the other end and I can use that and collect some of the hair. So cute that Tiger will fall asleep while you're combing him.
