Can I tell you how much my animals shed? It's ridiculous. Like I vacuum and a minute later I see fluffy fur tumbleweeds rolling down the hall. I can't stand it. I also hate it when I have Fred's white hair all over a nice dark sweater. It's also a pain because my mom and sister are allergic to Lucy, and my mother in law is allergic to Fred and Babs. I myself am sensitive to Fred, but not Babs. I know, it's weird that I am allergic to one cat but not the other.
In my quest to reduce fur and allergens I will try any product on the market. It's usually hit or miss with how well they work. I have the Eureka Power Paw attachment for my vacuum and I swear it's the best thing around.
But I needed to find something a little more preventative. I actually considered shaving the cats, but after doing a little research it's apparently inhumane blah blah blah(kidding!! I would never really shave them). So much for that. So I went to my favorite site for this stuff, Achoo Allergy, and started browsing. I found two things of interest.
1. Pet Brush Vacuum attachment - You pretty much put this on your vacuum and vacuum your pets.
2. Furminator Deshedding Tool - Simply use it to brush your pets
This seemed reasonable and easy enough, although the price tag was almost a deterrent. I saw that they had it on sale at my local Petco so I picked it up, came home, and immediately used it on Fred and Babs.
Okay, I should have taken a picture, but I am pretty sure they both weigh about 10 pounds less. THIS IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. I wish I had spent the money along time ago on this baby, I am pretty sure this is going to save me from having to vacuum every hour day.
If you are annoyed with pet hair like myself I highly recommend both the Power Paw vacuum attachment and the Furminator. Plus, if you have a husband like mine, he'll love walking around saying "the furminator" in his best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice.
