Dogs Cats and Fur Battles – Pet Tip 251

Cats and dogs have plenty of fur and the battle of the fur and the household never seems to end. Cats and dogs don’t seem to care much about losing a bit of fur but it does bother many humans. Given that the fur problem for humans is not likely to end anytime soon is there anything we can do to reduce the amount of fur that cats and dogs shed?

The answer is ‘yes and no’ and has a lot to do with the personality of the human not the cat or dog. Dogs and cats shed and that is a fact of life. They can no more stop shedding than we humans can stop shedding. (Humans shed skin cells and lose body/head hair every single day).

Juniper:

NOUN: Any of various evergreen trees or shrubs of the genus Juniperus, having needlelike or scalelike, often pointed leaves and aromatic, bluish-gray, berrylike, seed-bearing cones.


I had named you after the little Juniper tree in a fairy tale I had read as a child. The miniature tree who was made evergreen by the wind because it was one of the rare trees kind enough to protect a wounded bird through the dead of winter. My little friend, you were a fiesty handful as well and when I found out that Juniper berries were an important ingredient in gin production... I remembered thinking how apt it was and how instead of naming you, you were of that name already.


You are in a better place than me. And that is a balm I am grateful for.


I will miss you dearly, my little one. Your spring was short but what a lovely time it was.
