All cats shed fur, just not the same amount; as there are felines that shed lots of fur, there are cats that shed a small amount (a few have no fur to shed).

      its true – it does have two stars on cattime
      however this is not true
      My beloved Gypsi who passed away recently shed heaps of fur it was everywhere – in fact most people commented on this fact.
      One just has to adapt to their cats – that’s all!

    Our beautiful Turkish Angora, Archie, just passed away this month. He shed a LOT, and we honestly don think we will ever see the last of his beautiful coat. Its on the curtains, the bed spreads, even our clothes that hung in the wardrobes. They should probably be left off this list completely.
