How to Keep Cats from Shedding

Brush your cat on a regular basis. Brush your cat for five to ten minutes at least once
a week to manage shedding. If your cat has long hair or sheds heavily, you may
need to brush it once every two to three days or more

Help accustom your cat to regular brushing. You may need to train your cat to
tolerate grooming. Be attentive to your cat’s response and body language. Some
cats are hypersensitive to touch. Watch the cat’s body language to avoid
overwhelming or overstimulating it.

Bathe your cat. To actively reduce shedding, bathe your cat every one to four weeks.
Because most cats don’t like water, your cat may not be enthusiastic about a bath.
You may need to gradually work your cat up to a full bath.
Use cat-cleaning products. Visit a pet store and look for wipes or sprays that clean a
cat’s fur without water.
