Oakley will be four this year and while he generally has two sheds a year (one major, one minor).. I have found this year he has been awful all year long. This past week he too has started a big "molt"….he gets flustered or someone touches him...A MILLION white hairs fly onto his black coat....I brush him outside....I have to wash my sheets and vacuum the couches ALL the time...I itch all the time- I don't think there is anything to ease the annoyance. I do put down sheets or blankets on the couches...and I own a dyson (which is my trick for getting the hard to remove hairs). Sometimes I roll duck tape inside out, and pluck the couches...
Hey, have you noticed that his white hairs shed out more vs the black???? Uzie has this white band on his neck and tip of tail and my husband is amazed that he can pull these out and the black are not so messy…..
I just find that brushing against and then quickly back over will remove most hairs. Mostly however, the vaccum is our friend....Nature is nature and will continue to be even though we bring nature in our homes. Isn't that what we wanted to do a thousand years ago?
