Dogs shed their fur twice a year, so I assume this is the same with cats.
What is the mechanism whereby the change in temperature (assuming this is what causes the shedding) leads to the falling off of fur? Is it the same mechanism as balding?
Basic reasons as to why cats shed fur can be found in this link and this link.
An elaborate understanding of shedding in animals including cats can be obtained from this link. Hope that helps.
