Effective Ways To Reduce Shed Cat Hairs In Your Home Space | Higooga Blog

Reducing shed cat hairs in your home

From our carpets to our clothes to our sofa couches, shed cat hairs seem to have a bone to pick with us. And keeping them off our home space is exhausting, so it's a good thing that our cats bless us with all the 'aww' moments and affection that makes it all worth it. But be it as it may, it's still you that has to do the clean-up at the end of the day, and without the proper know-how, things can get tough to keep under control. We do, however, have some good news for you. There's hope after all. Here are a few ways you can take the fight to them and win the battle against shed cat hairs in your home space.

Having the right tools

Cleaning our places of rest from the cheeky souvenirs our furry friends leave behind in our spaces is already a handful as it is, but without the right tools, you are fighting a tough battle as the odds are against you. To win this battle, you'll need the proper arsenal of tools at your disposal. These tools will help you tackle the different surfaces within your home. For hardwood floors or general flooring, go with microfiber mops. For clothing and fabrics alike, you'll need some lint rollers at your disposal. For furniture, damp rubber gloves will be your friend. And for the finishing touch, a handheld vacuum cleaner should do the trick.

Regular fur brushing 

I know we sound like a broken record with this tip, but to no surprise, if you want to keep shed cat hairs from becoming a menace in your home, you'll have to go and take care of things at the source. And that means making sure that your furry friends are getting their fair share of brushing. If you do this without skipping a beat, you'll see fewer hairballs, less shedding, better flea spotting, and more bonding time with your stars. For cats with shorter hair, 1-2 brushing sessions per week will do the job. For long-haired cats, a daily brush is a sure way to go, so be sure to fit it in your daily agenda. 

Creating fur-friendly zones

If you've been living with your furry friend for a length, you've most probably noticed some cheeky behaviors from them here and there. One thing our stars have become infamous for is laying on things or places we wouldn't want them to (like our kitchen counters or dirty laundry) and leaving a bit of themselves behind when departing.

One way of solving this hair drama is getting some throw covers to protect your home space from being invaded with shed cat hairs. You can do this for your sofas, kitchen counter, you name it. Another way is giving them alternative fur-friendly spots for them to shed in peace and where the clean-up after is less stressful. And if you ask us, we recommend some cat beds, caves, and tunnels.

Giving the proper nutrients

Ever heard the notion 'you are what you eat?' I sure have, and whether or not you think it applies, we can't deny that what we feed our furry friends has a crucial impact on their health and well-being. And when it comes to their fur health, often this is a direct reflection of our cat's diet. The more they consume foods on the opposite spectrum of healthy, the more hair they shed. But more shedding means more work in our hands right? I don't know about you, but for me, I quite like the soft life, so fewer cleanups are most welcome. And if you're on the same wavelength as me, you too can reduce shed cat hairs along with labor work by feeding your stars with foods that are high in moisture, protein, and relatively low in carbohydrates to satisfy their needs. This will give them the required nutrients for healthy fur and less hair shedding.
