Will she shed her peach fuzz?

I've had Lemon, my 6 month old kitten, for about four months now. Her peach fuzz around her eyes, ears, feet, and tail has been continuously growing. Do they shed their peach fuzz at any point? It keeps getting longer and I don't know if I should try and trim it or not. I heard that once you spay/neuter your sphynx the growing may stop, but I neutered her about a month ago and it is still growing.

Does anyone know if sphynx cats possess the gene to shed?

It depends on the cat and the lines.
Some sphynx will grow hair and shed.
Did you use a breeder?

You will have to remove the link because it is against site rules.
Do you have the blue slip with the sire and dams name on it?
There is not much info on the breeders site.

Hairlessness is never a guarantee, but the hair can vary from time to time.

It could be due to the hormones and changing weather. With that being said, it may go away, or it may not. But hopefully the peach fuzz just makes her that more kissable!
