We brush and brush and brush.

It's natural that as the weather heats up shedding will increase. However, excessive shedding can be a sign of poor health. He may be stressed or lacking a nutrient in his diet. If you think his shedding is excessive, take him to the vet.

Oh, and be sure that you give him lots of hairball treatment, especially now. A Tip: In college I worked at a pet shop where we sold tons of hairball remedies for $5.00 and up. Wanna know what we would use? Plain ol' vaseline/petroleum jelly. Its cheap and works great. Simply smear a blob on your cats front paw. He'll lick it off himself.

i once read in a magazine that a little bit of olive oil also helps them with hairballs. i usually just wait them out and then hug my kitties--they seem so traumatic. brushing also helps but sometimes they gotta be in the mood to be brushed so good luck.

doesn't the shedding have to do with the warm weather?

brush a cat?! HOW? will the cat let you?

ay, deja a rico suave en el pasado!
si ya sabes que te hace mal, que no es bueno para ti, entonces dejalo!

ademas, piensa en un posible futuro con alguien que si te valora- que te aprecia y quiere : )

un fuerte y caluroso abrazo.

abre los ojos!
