No, this really isn't a commercial ad! This is just something I want to pass along to you all if you are interested in seeing the amount of cat hair in your home decrease. This "discovery" of mine came about rather by accident. Remember the cat food scare a few years ago? Well, that is why we lost Jessie -- due to the tainted cat food. As I result, I started feeding my brood a brand primarily formulated for show cats, I think. It's called "Royal Canin" and comes in different varieties. I get it at a local seed and feed store. It is amazing how much it decreases their shedding and has eliminated Oscar's need to constantly have his teeth cleaned. This is the link if any of you are interested - http://products.royalcanin.us/products.aspx?Animal=Cat Oh, and they have a hair ball formula that really works, too! I feed my horde several varieties in a sort of non-scheduled rotation.
