I've been spending some ridiculous amount of time squashing my cat. (I'd say 'cuddling' her, but really, it's squashing. She's remarkably good-natured about it.)

Along the way, I discovered the Furminator -- a comb-thing that does not make loose hair fly up into the air (and therefore, I sneeze less while combing her), while also managing to do a remarkably most effective job at removing fur. I now have a cat that is half the size of the cat I started with. And she loves it -- she stayed twice as long as she usually does for these de-furring sessions.

I wish I'd thought to take a picture of the trash can full of her hair before I took the trash out; it was a whole two cats' worth of hair that got removed, which is about twice as much as she usually will stand for.

Maybe this way, after an intense vacuuming session, people might be able to actually visit here without immediately sneezing and running for the Claritin...

Awesome, it really works that well? Where did you buy it? We once had a cat who loved to be vacuumed... Alas, my current kitties hide from the vacuum, so brushing is a necessity. ;-)

It *does* work that well. I got it on Amazon *sheepish* I actually got this one: http://www.amazon.com/FURminator-deShedding-Tool-Cats-1-75-Inch/dp/B000PU31MY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1279243305&sr=8-2

It's slightly smaller, but I think I should have gotten the extra inch up...
