My cat, Lindy, is a massive ball of fur.  She’s long-haired and multi-colored.  She is also shedding like you cannot believe.  You ever see the aftermath of a cat fight where there are tufts of fur everywhere?  That’s what my house looks like.  There are cat hair tumbleweeds rolling across my living room.  The air is so saturated with cat fur that I am waken up multiple times a night by cat hair landing on my face.  No amount of brushing is able to stem the fusilade of fur.  I have never seen so much fur come off of an animal before.  And I used to own a Siberian husky.
