What you choose to feed your pet can have a great impact on the cat's general wellbeing and health. What you may not know is that it can also greatly affect your cat's pretty fur coat. In particular, a quality diet rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids can help keep your cat's skin and coat soft, and also reduces shedding. So next time you're shopping for kitty's dinner, consider those premium brands and look for Omega-3 and Omega-6.
Regular grooming is another ongoing preventative measure you can take to reduce the amount of fur your cat sheds. Using the right tools, you can ensure your cat is comfortable and happy while you brush away the excess fur: fur which would have otherwise ended up all over your home. Mat removing tools help you remove matted and tangled hair, while not harming your cat's delicate skin.
Bathing your cat regularly can also help control the amount of fur shed around your household. It removes loose excess hair, and also helps keep your cat's skin and coat clean and healthy. Make sure you use high quality cat shampoo, as cheap brands can often cause irritation.
If you're still at the stage of choosing which cat to buy, there are three breeds to consider which shed less. These are the obviously hairless Sphynx, the Cornish Rex and the Devon Rex. If the above solutions seem like too much for you, it might be worth considering these three lovely breeds of cat.
