She's just a regular mackerel DSH, but when I start brushing her, it never ends! Theres so much loose hair, I fill bags with it each time. I hust gave her a half hour of purring grooming and she's looking great, but I know I could carry on all day and still be removing hair. I do it now about 3-4 times a week- if I leave it for weeks as Ive done occasionally, she gets a little dandruffy which clears up when she's getting brushed regularly. Her fur does look nice for the work, but does everyone who has a cat that sheds see this much loose fur? I brushed my moms russian blue the other day and it was just ridiculous, even worse! I pretty much threw away a whole cat. Is this normal?
