How do you all manage to keep cat hair at a minimum?
Or dont you thinking ? Are you a clean freak and vaccuum every day? or do you let it go and really not care?
Fill us in. We are curious.

I vacuum every other day as I have exczema. The hair gets all over my setee's, and they are cream, so black hairs show up mol. I hate to see hair all over the place though.

We have hardwood floors upstairs where Isabelle spends most of her time, and I try to swiffer once a week or so. Occassionally I will get behind and "floofies" start rolling around red face eek red face.

However, Isabelle is short-hair and the only furry babe in the house, so we don't have a crazy hair situation going on. As far as furniture, I don't really de-fur unless we have company coming over (she doesn't get on the furniture much, so really not an issue).

We have hardwood downstairs, a maid twice a week and the kittens don't really shed yet I guess.

I also feed raw, that I hear cuts down on shedding. I own a Furminator? I'm not sure if that helps. Think the diet has plenty to do with it

Why has no one invented a giant lint roller for carpets and upholstry? One That's attached to a rod like a mop?

I vacuum about once a week. I have hardwood floors. Hair on the floor isn't the problem. Its on my nieces highchair, his cat tree is full of it, his platform, my bed, his spot on the loveseat, and clothes! I can't seem to get it off my clothes no matter how hard I try. Its like it has static cling. It literally sticks on my jacket. I'm thankful for lint rollers. smile

If only he would stay still long enough for me to brush him!

We own a Dyson animal. With 3 dogs and 3 cats, if we didn't have a great vacuum, we'd be buried in fur big laugh
