Ok, PHX is a short hair lynx point siamese mix cat... he never really seemed to shed that much before. I do have a brush for him, but every time I try to use it he just wants to play with it instead of getting brushed. So I don't brush him, and it's never been an issue. Lately (the last few days) it seems like he's shedding a lot.. I don't just mean a lot I mean A LOT! Why is this? What's going on? How can I get it to stop? It's frustrating me because he's getting hair all over the place!

I add a touch of oil to the wet food during the shed season... It works for me and Zoey .... Who is semi feral and brushing can be a daunting task

I don't feed him wet food!?! Would that make a difference?

yes ... wet food of quality will have some extra and readily used fatty acids and vitamins to aid it shed releif

can you recommend a good/inexpensive one? how often does he need to eat the wet food?

SORRY: This should probably be in the nutritional thread but it deals with shedding....

In addition to what Sharky said, while you're brushing him - scratch his head, chin or cheeks with your other hand. That works for some of my reluctant cats. Pumpkin will sit still if I give her something to chew on...plastic or rubber kitchen utensils are tasty, she says. She's fine as long as she has something to gnaw on while I brush her.
