Many years ago I read that cat hair on one’s clothing during salaat did not void the salaat. Recently however I read that if one finds more than two hairs on their clothing then salaat is void. Why the change on this issue?

We hope this answer reaches you in good health and Islamic spirit.

Based on your specific question and information provided.

From the Fiqh / Jurisprudence perspective.

If there is one cat hair or there are two or three hairs on a person’s body or clothes, his prayer is in order but if there are more than that, his prayer becomes void, as an obligatory precaution. However, if one becomes aware after prayer, his previous prayer(s) are valid.
