Junior thanks you both for the compliments.
Surprisingly enough, I think Junior sheds less than my previous cat, Max. Max was a orange and white tabby--an American short hair mix. There seemed to be hair all over my house. But with Junior, his undercoat (the lighter part) doesn't seem to shed as much as the dark top coat. So I will find clumps of dark hair that are easy to pick up, rather than tons of tiny white hairs scattered everywhere that hard to clean up. And since I brush Junior regularly (which he LOVES and Max HATED), it's easy to take care of his thick coat.
