The fur of our shorthair moggie Snow White needs a thorough brush each day or her awn hair will be all over the house – not to mention what she’ll lick off herself and pass through her system. Even after having collected a great blob with the brush, two minutes later I can strike her back and she has already shed some more. And it was the same with Rudolf before her – traces of his red coat was to be found around the house long after he had gone. As to the Norwegian semi-longhairs we’ve had, their coats have actually needed surprisingly little grooming. There doesn’t seem to be the same kind of awn hair (if I have understood the term correct) and so they don’t shed nearly as much. There is a risk of matting, especially on the chest and chins where the tongue won’t reach, but that occurs only a few times a year – mainly in the spring. Except for that our old Milly (in her 16th year) is still grooming her fur with very little outside help. 😉 Mar 09, 2010 Rating Charlie!!! by: Dorothy So nice to see Charlie again. He looks so beautiful and healthy. Those eyes, those eyes. Sweet boy. He doesn’t care he is three legged. Happy happy cat.dw Mar 09, 2010 Rating Charlie by: Gail (Boston, MA USA) Were you, by chance, holding out a treat for Charlie? Between his Meerkat stance and licking his chops, it looks like he’s waiting for something tasty!What a gorgeous furkid, Michael. Lots of personality too.
