Cat hair gets everywhere. Carpets, curtains, cushions, clothes.
A day will rarely go by where you’re not sweeping up fur from the floor or off the furniture.
Cats shed in order to remove dead hair from their bodies.
While your feline will shed all year-round, you may begin to notice them moulting more at certain times of the year.
Cat shedding season generally takes place twice yearly; in the spring and the autumn.
During the spring months, the moulting takes place so they can lose their thicker, heavier winter coats. In the autumn, the shedding makes room for the thicker layers of hair they’ll need to keep warm when temperatures drop.
Shedding happens across all breeds, irrespective of hair length. However, seasonality isn’t always the single cause, which means pet parents need to be extra vigilant if they do begin noticing more hair around the house.
