Cats that won’t leave your house covered in hair

Want to adopt a cat but worried about the cat hair all around the house?
Here are 10 cats that don’t shed (or shed less)!
Sphynx cats don’t shed at all because they have a genetic mutation that makes them hairless. Their body oils usually build up on their skin making them need a bath once or twice a week.
The Burmese cat only requires a simple brushing once per week as they do not really shed as much although they do have a lot of hair.
The Donskoy cat, is also called the Russian Hairless. They have no hair therefore they do not shed, however they do need a bath once a week because of the body oils getting clogged up on their skin.
4. Devon Rex
The Devon Rex does shed unfortunately, however their hair is very short, so it won’t need a lot of maintenance. Cats like Devon Rex and Bengal cats have special coats on their body that don’t let them shed that much.
5. Russian Blue
Russian Blue cats do have thick coats of hair but they do not shed as much as you think, they would need around one brushing per week to help keep the body oils from clogging onto their body.
Bombay cats have short hair on their body so they also do not require high maintenance and the fear of them shedding around the house.
Although Bengal cats do shed some as they grow older, they do not shed as much. They do shed in the spring season but more brushing in that season will help!
Siamese cats do shed like other cats, however their hair is short and you wouldn’t notice it as much as other cats’ shedding.
9. British Shorthair
British Shorthairs shed during spring time and autumn during the year although they do not shed regularly. It is important to brush them once a week.
10. Cornish Rex
The Cornish Rex doesn’t shed as much and is very low maintenance. Their curly hair is very soft to touch.
But let’s be honest,
All cats shed at some point. But to reduce this, give them a brush once or twice a week to make sure you give your cats a nice clean coat of fur.
