A stray kitten adopted me several years ago and he is a love. Like all of my cats past, I keep him inside. But unlike all of cats past, he sheds excessively and I have become a slave trying to keep it under control. I vacuum daily, wipe floors, clean upholstered furniture and dust (and I am not a neat freak). Please tell me what to do. Spring and summer are worse, of course. He sheds more than a golden retriever I had. I am tempted to have him put under several times a year to have him shaved. Please tell me what to do. Thank you.
You can try a multivitamin with omega fatty acids and weekly baths. There are also low shed spray and shampoo products available but shedding is a fact of life with animals and there are no guarantees.
