Living in a warehouse that’s been converted into loft apartments can be a mess. Opening windows in said loft while there’s an arena, and entertainment center, being built one block away is an invitation for dust everywhere. Having a cat as a roommate in that very same loft, that has some carpet for hair to stick to, can be a mess.
Levi, who recently turned one and graduated to big kitty food, is a hairy beast. I know I said she was a sea creature before, but she’s since abandoned the water and has likened herself to a sasquatch. Being a short-haired cat, it’s amazing how much hair she sheds in a week.
It hasn’t really been a problem, until I realized that when I swept the floors, 50% of the hair was being shot into the air to settle AFTER I was done sweeping. Not good. She’s also taken to the habit of sleeping on top of my couch cushions. Doubly not good, especially to someone with a slight allergy to cats. (I know, spare me the lecture.)
While searching the internet for a better cleaning product for Levi’s colored DNA, I happened across a site that praised electrostatic rubber-bristled brushes. Off to the store I went and picked up a Pet Hair Eliminator broom and Grooming brush.
This thing is amazing. I spent almost two hours scouring my floor, carpet, couch and desk chair. The result is the pile of fur you see in the above photo.
And I wonder how/why I’ve had so many sinus infections lately?
