Regular brushing & proper nutrition are your best defense against shedding. Grooming keeps their skin & coat healthy & gets rid of the loose hair. There are a variety of grooming products available to fit the needs of every pet. I use the Bamboo FurBuster, which is like the Furminator but it has interchangeable blades/combs of different sizes. I use every week or two on my long-haired cats. You have to use caution when using these tyes of products so its always good to have other brushes & combs to use for daily grooming. I often use a Zoom Groom which also pulls a lot of hair off of them while massaging them. They tolerate prolonged grooming with it much better. My long-haired cats get brushed every day. Most of the time, my short-haired cats do too, just because they love it & its good bonding time.
Make sure your cats are getting a quality food with plenty of vitamins & fatty acids to promote healthy skin & coat too.

Shed ender is an as seen on tv product that removes the undercoat. www.asseenontv.com/prod-pages/shed_ender.html?gid=TOOL_OUTDOOR_PET
(or look for a brush with the same kind of brush thingy)
Depending on if you can get your cat to sit still, it is awesome :) My cat usually will let me do it for a good 10-15 minutes before wanting me to stop. And usually you get a nice pile of fur off :) hope this helps!
