  1. That is a lot. My daughter just brought a new kitten after her cat died of old age and that cat shed a great deal. It was all over the home.
    Have a great day Mimi. See ya.

  5. The worst we ever had was a pug, you could brush that dog all day long and end up with enough hair to knit another dog, and still have plenty of hair on the pug.
