Is it possible? I wonder about it. We have two cats–an orange tabby and a black-and-white tuxedo cat. Two cats. There’s no escaping the inevitable tufts of cat hair floating around. We brush the cats occasionally, but you can’t tell. Let it go longer than a week without vacuuming and we’re talking tumbleweeds in the house. Especially in the wintertime when we can’t really–with a clear conscience–let the cats outside in the backyard to play. The hair collects. Everywhere.
In desperation, I started to wonder can you vacuum a cat? I realize the sound of a vacuum cleaner, including little ones, would probably end this before anything ever got started even if I donned some falconer gloves and a hockey mask. On the silent side, rollers with sticky sheets seem like they would create a mess–the cat would spend days cleaning himself in order to remove residue. Lick, lick, glare. Lick.
With my low vision, you know I’m not seeing all the cat hair that’s around our house. I can spend an entire day schlepping the vacuum cleaner like I’m on a Martha Stewart staycation, working in a grid pattern, walking the perimeters. When I ask Stockton to check my work, there’s always something I’ve missed. Story of my life. The cat hair wins again.
Tell me if you know a good way to eliminate the cat hair which does not involve accidental death or dismemberment to either myself or my cats. I’m ready.
