I've reached a shedding breakdown (cat hair everywhere, and my vacuum broke!) yesterday, so I finally went to Petco and bought a Furminator, based on the recommendations of pretty much everyone here. (I also bought a new vacuum, but I'm hoping not to have to use it nearly as much, since that's what — aside from being cheap — broke the old one) and everyone was right, this thing is the best. Hobbes likes to roll around on the ground and have his belly scratched, and every single time I come away with handfuls of hair. But he did this after I spent just a couple of minutes on him with the Furminator, and hardly a hair came out. Hallelujah!
So now I'm wondering, how often should I furminate? Is it safe to do daily (or as often as the cats will allow), or should it only be done every now and then? Anyone have any thoughts?
I finished up his bath time with this Microfiber Towel ($18) — pretty and green, it was barely damp after I dried him off! Check out the products up close, and see how well they cleaned North's fur below!
With such a tough-sounding product name, I'll admit I was expecting the FURminator to work wonders terminating North's pet-hair issue. One local pet store has an actual TV playing this video of a man testing the product out on a heavy-shedding breed, the Golden Retriever, and that stack of dog hair was quite shocking . . . and definitely piqued my interest. Since I've got a pooch who does get hair on my clothes and my furniture, I was willing to try out anything to help me limit the shed. On the right, you'll recognize my cutie patootie and, on the left, a fairly ordinary looking brush said to do extraordinary things. Will it work out?
