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).

Simon doesn't like crowds or anything new.  When the house is quiet he is the suckiest, loving cat.  He really loves sitting on your lap and being very close.  He's even putting up with the new addition to our house, our 6 month old Golden Retriever, Sadie.  ::  That was over five years ago.  We even got another dog, Dexter to add to our family.  Sadly, Simon passed away on February 9th, 2010.  He was over 18 years old.  From a self sufficient to a very high maintenance cat in a matter of two years.  He was brave as he battled hyper-thyroidism, kidney disease, heart murmurs and anxiety.  He needed me so much care that our trip to the east coast in 2009 had him riding in the trailer for 2 months.  For this rough ride he enjoyed lobster from the Bay of Fundy.  He had a great life, I am sure he'd say.  But he was wore out in the end and we made the decision to put him to sleep.  Farewell my dear cat, Simon.  You will be missed.
