Do Ragdoll Cats Shed?
This topic comes up pretty frequently through emails and on our Facebook page. There is a myth out there that Ragdoll cats don’t shed. I have never experienced a non-shedding Ragdoll cat! They are long-haired cats, so of course they are going to shed and there is going to be a lot of hair because they are long haired!
Curious readers sometimes ask me to quantify the amount Ragdoll cats shed and there is no way to quantify that. The amount they shed depends on:
1. Where they live – the climate, temperature, humidity
2. What they eat
3. Their genes
4. How often they are brushed
Please share your shedding experience with your Ragdolls by leaving a comment below. Also, be sure to include what you do to help with the quantity of cat hair. You might also be interested in reading our post about Best Vacuums for Ragdoll Cat Hair According to Ragdoll Cat Owners
