Well gotta realize that it is shedding season. Was she brushed at her previous home? Every Bengal is different some more than others.
I have a 2 year old brown marble bouncing Bengal boy Loki - who hates brushing and will not sit still for it. So, I try to get at him him 1-2 x a week or until my back gives out since I have to follow him around stooped over in order to get a brushing in. That usually does it. I think if you get into a routine of brushing once or twice a week you should be fine. You might need to adjust baseds on the time of year.
Sorry can help with Snowshoes.
Oh an congradulations!!!!!!!! Bengals are special and always expect the unexpected.
