Yes, Australian Mist cats do shed (fur). The Australian Mist is a rather rare cat breed from Australia. All cat breeds shed. All domestic cats shed. People really want to find a cat breed which does not shed fur but they are looking for the Holy Grail much like looking for a cat breed which is hypoallergenic. They don’t exist despite what some people profess.
There’s nothing more to say really. You won’t find any books discussing this aspect of this particular cat breed. You might find something online which claims that this breed does not shed fur but it really isn’t true. Why should it be? Non-shedding flies in the face of the cat’s anatomy.
How much do Australian Mist cats cost? Answer: around AU$500 I suspect. The price of purebred cats in the West and in Australia will be similar. The price depends somewhat on the quality of the cat of course. An exception to this would be the high filial wild cat hybrids and high quality breeding cats.
