my cat losing lots of hair

how much hair does a cat lose between fall and winter if a cat is real hairy can it be a lot or just a little

Answer by Kate
Cats moult all the time but loss more in the summer when the temperature increases.

the amount lost depends on the cats fur density. There should be no signs of baldness though.

Keeping a cat well groomed will help prevent things like hairballs forming and making your cats sick or from matts forming on the skin.

please see this page for more on grooming etc

best wishes Kate
