Shedding issue

Help---do longhaired cats lose clumps of their fur when they do their seasonal shedding? All of a sudden, I'm finding Jazz's fur, and not just the undercoat -- long, silky fur -- around the house. She got underfoot this morning and I stepped on her with my shoe-she didn't yelp too loud and I think I caught her tail. I wonder if that's why she's losing the fur...

I am guessing that must be a matted part of her fur,

I have a long hair that hates the brush, but I can comb her for a few seconds,

just got a detassling comb(has a handle) that she will tolerate too, I also clip(saftey sizzor, aware of staying far away from skin) for them really troubling areas.

I am not so aware of a shedding season, but when she is nervous at the vets office she does shed extra.

My longhaired cat Tiger leaves hunks of hair where he's been sitting (l o u n g i n g really.) My husband thinks Tiger does this just to bug him, I think he just has too much hair! I think it's normal unless you see some bald spots.
