This fur!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've never seen cat hair like this! My last cat was short haired. My dad had a long haired cat, but his hair was more coarse. Fin's is very fine, much like an angora rabbit. I think it flies through the air with the dust. I have a comb for him, and I comb him nightly. It gets out about an egg-sized clump of hair every night. Maybe a little less. I think I'm gonna learn how to spin it

Is there something else (not super expensive), that will get more hair out? Slicker brush or something?

Diet maybe? I just got him last tuesday, he's been on natures recipe since I have had him. I suspect he was eating a poor quality food prior to that. Will it get better when he adjusts to this house/food? Or will I forever be picking hair out of my mouth every time he rubs against my face.

I was considering a raw diet, perhaps this will be my incentive...

It will take a little longer to see the effects of a better diet on the coat. It is shedding season though so with a little more time the shedding should slack off. Regular combings is the best thing you can do. I have a longer haired cat with a thick undercoat and bathing her every 3 or 4 weeks really cut down on the shedding as well.

He's probably losing his winter coat, to some extent. In addition, some cats have very dense undercoats.

Some cats just shed more then others. An egg sized ball of fur daily, isn't really all that much for a long haired cat.
