Q.

What type of cat does not shed?

A.

Almost all cats shed. Some cats shed more than others, however.

Siamese, Burmese and Tonkinese cats have no undercoat, so they tend to not shed so much.

Cornish Rex and Devon Rex cats have an undercoat, but no outer guard hairs, so they also shed less.

Of course, if you truly want cats that don’t shed at all, well, there’s always the Sphynx. They are hairless. No hair — no shedding!
