Boo Kitty went to the Vet just Thursday, checked out A+ 100% great. Now though, the past day or so, she's been shedding like mad. We'll find tiny piles of loose fur all over the place. Is this normal? For the winter? It's getting excessive...

Her breed is Bombay or Burmese if that matters -- I forgot which one atm. They both are the same in my head.

It's probably a combination of the dry heat in your home and the trip to the vet. I find that most cats shed like crazy at the vet office so the excessive shedding your cat is experiencing is likely normal.

I have a Persian who typically doesn't shed too much but he's been dropping big tuffs of hair everywhere lately so I feel for ya! :)

Bombay is a smallish, totally black cat with copper eyes, burmese are different shades of carmel color usually with the points like Siamese but different...um...dispersion? Anywhere from light tan colored to dark brown. But both of those cats are shorthair, and I was thinking that if she's shedding in tufts then she'd be a longhair. Hmm....

fatcat, You can see that the ears, muzzle, feet, and tail of the Siamese pictured in my avatar are darker than the rest of the body. Siamese are born pure white, and start developing their points within 2 weeks. There are Sealpoints, Bluepoints, Chocolate and Lilac Points. These are the four original colors. Later, other colors were developed.
