If you have a black cat, what colors in your wardrobe hides cat hair?FamilyPet
People who make their lives with black cats are better off than white cat owners — for at least half the year. During the winter months when darker clothing tends to be worn, almost any dark shade will reasonably mask the presence of black cat hair. However, as soon as the weather begins to warm and the lighter spring and summer colors come out of the closet, the little ebony calling cards your feline scatters around the house will stand out with a vengeance.
Because inside cats shed year round, the only way to escape the constant issue of cast off fur is to groom your cat. Regular brushing and combing will go a long way toward eliminating the problem before the pesky hairs ever get on your clothes. Remember, however, that a cat’s skin is very fragile. Especially if you have a long-haired breed where tangles and mats may be present, you need to make sure you’re using the right tools for the job. Always consult with a professional groomer or your veterinarian to pick the correct implements.
All cat owners, regardless of the coloration of their feline companions, swear by the tried-and-true sticky roller. Even with a regular grooming schedule, most cat owners give themselves a “once over” on the way out the door. But never underestimate the power of a cat. You can fully expect to look down at the opera and see stray cat hairs you missed on your suit. After all, Fluffy is a cat and he’ll be the first to tell you, he’s good at what he does — including shedding.
