Cat Hair

At my house, cat hair is a condiment. You accept it. You KNOW it will be in your food and it is a total waste of time picking it out. By the time you are done pulling each piece out of your dinner, it is cold and unappetizing. So you might as well eat it and don't think twice about it.

I have one cat, Magrat Garlick, that likes to ~ExPlOdE~ on the carpet once you have it vacuumed. Scott calls them 'babies'. The dumb thing is that this very dignified cat will walk past her explosiveness, and jump around and swat at them like they are some alien oddity on the floor.

My cats won't let me vacuum them. They dont like the plugged in dragon. Poor Coconut is so afraid of the vaccum she won't come out for a hour after I am done with it.

So we LIVE with the cat hair. You even try to push it off to your friends as trendy pieces of art when they walk in your house. We can't even remember the "real" color of our carpet.

We know when we leave the house each morning for work, no matter what color we are wearing, some cat hair with hi-light itself on you. I could care less, I work with hair all day at the hospital. Scott on the other hand has a look of somewhat disgust on his face each morning that one of the cats has marked his clothing with hair. It gets bad when you can identify whos hair it is.

This is my latest gadget in the war against cat hair. I will NEVER EVER win this war, but I thought the brush was awfully cute!!!

And, trust me on this, cat hair can survive a trip through a human's digestive system.

Don't ask...

It is a bit disconcerting. Your cats don't shed any more than Jeff's dogs. You are just in a smaller place. I will check the Sharper Image catalog, they are bound to have something. I got Cindy a brush for the hounds from them.

We're now trying the "Love Glove" (no, not that one, silly, this one). Seems to work okay, and Mojo (the cat) prefers it to a regular brush or comb, but she's still not crazy about it.

There has to be something other than a tape roller. I have tumble weeds rolling through my house and it is getting crazy what I find under the couch. Isn't there anything that can control these patches of fur? HELP - Donna
