Default How much fur does a cat shed everyday?

Recently, I saw a ball of fur flying across the floor. When I pet my cat, I see lose hairs all the time. Sometimes when I pick at a spot on her coat, the fur will keep coming off...even if it's just 3-5 strands. When I carry her, there'll be lots of fur stuck to my clothes

Is this normal? Or is it the hot weather? There's no a/c in my house and I haven't changed her food. She's been eating the same food for months.

I usually brush her once to twice a week since she's short haired.

There is a lot of answer to this question actually.

1) She might be growing up and shedding her old fur to replace a new better fur.

2) It may be because of hot weather and she sheds a lot to cool herself.

3)And yes, it might be the food that cause her fur to drop down.

I hope it helps.

I like answer #1 And could be the weather since it's so hot lately.

Hi, by giving your cat coat supplement to hold the hair tight and less shedding. It just works for me. I give them Brewers Yeast Tablet and Salmon Oil Supplement.

I have 10 adult cats and 4 kittens ! you can just imagine how much fur I have to vacuum .Thanks to the supplement :0
