Babbage is fine, but Ada, who has a lovely soft coat of really fine hair, sheds constantly - she really could do with being hoovered twice a day*

Does anyone else have a bengal that sheds a lot ?

Yes Magic has always shed all year round, I bought a special comb to get out all the loose fur, whereas Pearl seems to have a different type of coat and hardly loses any.

My curtains and most material things always seem to have Magic's fur on it.

Raiden only sheds in the spring/early summer and not very much! I don't get much on the comb when I comb him. The moggie I'm feeding is still shedding. I fill up the wire brush with three strokes.

If I run wet hands over them, I will pull out some fur. I brush Grace often and fur comes out in the brushes. She begs for the brush several times a day. Blondie is too sensitive for a brush and doesn't seem to shed. in general there is not fur around the house that I can see, but when I vacuum there is fur in the filter. They just had their annual shots and the vet commented on their beautiful coats. They are 3 years old now. Time flies.

Claire - what brush do you use with Magic ?

Oh and let me know if anyone wants a cashmere bengal jumper knitting.

Neither of mine shed much. In fact I can pet them or brush them or comb them and very little fur comes free. If I go and look at their favorite sleeping places there will be a very small layer of cat hair on it, but you'd have to look to find it. But it's no doubt dependent on temperature/climate right? It's a pretty cool climate in Oregon, plus they live in air conditioned bliss in the summer.

Mine shed quite a lot when I comb them these days but it's really hot where I live. They wouldn't shed much in winter. But I don't have a lot of hair around the house or sticking to my clothes so it's not a problem.

I've only had my Bengals since September 2015 and compared to previous general moggies I've had the pleasure of to know I would say that my girls don't shed that much. They do love me stroking their fur with my lint roller and it's only when I do this that I notice they do seem to have quite a bit shed during these summer months.

Oscar sheds quite a lot. I brush him with a kind of glove with little rubber bumps on it. This is the only brush that does not immediately cause him to think 'game on' and attack! :rolleyes:

I use a double sided comb, one Side detangles any fur then it flips over and the fine side rakes out all the loose fur, I'm not sure what it's called as I bought it a while ago at a country fair.

Merlin seems to shed for all the Bengals that don't! I am sometimes amazed he isn't bald, the amount I can comb from him, and then even more comes out when I stroke him. He is a hair production factory... I've never known a cat to shed so much, yet his coat is shiny, has glitter, is thick / full and not even remotely moth eaten....?!?!?

He must be a freak!...................But he's MY freak! :celebrate: LOL
