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).

Blackie was a wonderful dog. So prude and well-mannered but let her bark out when intruders were present. Although she was daddy's girl, she showed unconditional love towards myself, and the rest of my family. Blackie always loved to run up to you the second you got home and bury her head in your chest, making her feel warm and safe. I miss her so much already but realize she is happy. Before she died at 6:30 am, Sunday October 21, 2007, she looked at my dad, took a deep breath and whimpered right before she passed showing how much she wanted to hang on and not leave us after a long night in the garage with my dad under blankets. Mostly bones and pain she needed to move on into a place of glory, but I will forever remember her cute personality and love.
