George's only fault, according to his adopted parent(s) is that "you're screwed if you wear black." I don't know if white cats shed more than other color of cats, but my last white cat, Arthur, released hairs like a snowstorm. Now a healthy trim 14 pounds, George was headed toward obesity and potential diabetes at 18 1/2 pounds when he was 1.5 years old. He not only eats more reasonably, but he also enjoys outdoor exercise on a harness and leash. Although he was about to be "put to sleep" by a veterinarian when he was adopted, he is in the lap of luxury now, complete with a few Temptations treats every day. Life is good for George.
