Shedding Season IS Happening

By

Even back in the day when we had two guinea pigs, a dog, and two birds I don't remember shedding season being so bad that I actually breathed in fur or feathers. That being said, two birds molting at the same time can create a really big mess.

I have written a couple other pet shedding posts this spring because Timmothy's cartoon keeps bringing it up. My previous shedding posts were on lint rollers and on vacuum cleaners but this is the first one to mention bird dander and molting. I hope you find it useful and the cartoon funny.

I have a lint roller in my clothes closet to get the cat hair off of me, pre-appointment!

That's a wise idea Michael Elliott . I also have to watch what I'm wearing. A black dog so no whites until shedding season is over.

Yes indeed funny and shedding here with 2 dogs seems year round, just some months are worse than others.

Thank you Leanne Smith . My dog, Baby, does 99% of her shedding at this time.

Good morning, Bob... no birds at my end, so I'm good. Bingo does not shed much; hardly at all. Mr. Marlow is a long haired cat, but his shedding seems constant throughout the year.

Consistency is good Nina Hollander, Broker . Of all the pets we've had I'd say birds are the messiest but it is nice to hear song birds throughout our long winters.

Bob "RealMan" Timm I had three birds when I was a kid... dirtiest pets I ever had and I never repeated that experience.

Good morning Bob,

Loved the cartoon and there is a reason they sell so many lint rollers! LOL!

Dorie Dillard Austin TX I keep a supply at home and in the office. The one at the office is used mostly for the black table clothes we have.

Hello Bob and I have a lint roller in my car at all time, some listing appointments have cats.

That is a great idea Will Hamm especially if you are allergic to pets of any kind.

That back pack with the two parakeets is hilarious, Bob!  I hope you are having a pleasant weekend.

It was a good weekend Myrl Jeffcoat , I wish I could say it was a pain free weekend. The backpack was a lot of fun, how many people do you see out walking their birds?
