My kitty Eska is about 8-9 months old. From the moment we first brought her into the house, she completely stole our hearts. We were incredibly lucky to get such a well-behaved kitten... but dealing with her hair is another story. It's no big deal, but I'm starting to become annoyed with the cat hair EVERYWHERE. It gets on my clothes, on the furniture, in my food, in my toothpaste, etc. Every time I pet her, my hands are covered in hair by the time I'm done. Eska is a short-haired cat, so when we got her, we didn't even think she would need a brush. She does groom herself, but from what I've seen, she doesn't seem to be as grooming-intensive as other cats. I do bathe her once every six weeks or so (yes, I know cats clean themselves, but in a household with two people with cat allergies, an occasional bath really does help). So, what I'm asking is, what can I do to help limit the amount of hair she sheds? I know brushing her regularly will probably help (and I will be getting a brush as soon as I can), but other than that, is there anything I can do to reduce the shedding?
