Hoovers?

I have 2 Dysons... upright and cordless. Both work OK, but my cats are short haired and don't shed a lot... probably not that helpful getmecoat

Fellow cat owners - what hoover have you got and how well does it work - our Vax is absolutely pants at getting hair out of carpets, doesn't even budge - since the prolonged dry weather, the cats have come in really dusty too and the house is getting 'urrgghh', so need something decent now.

Tried hosing the cats down as they get close to the cat flap, don't like it... (didn't realy).
We have a Dyson DC40 which is pretty good. I try to brush Bear each day, he really likes it and it hopefully will reduce any hairballs.

Vacuums - thanks all.

So far the shortlist is the GTech Air Ram K9 bundle, the Dyson V8 Animal and the Shark DuoClean truePet - all are about the same money and they all have reviews that love them, or reviews where the other model is preferred, so I suppose it's down to which one I like the look of and if a deal comes up.

Try hoovering the cat! Some cats love being hoovered.

As does my Labrador. It’s weird.

As for the cats. On your life be it.

Back in the '70s, our Siamese would shed quite a lot of her hair onto the carpets, which was a bugger to shift.

So my brother hit on the idea of using the Hoover Dustette stair carpet cleaner - directly on the cat...

As he switched it on, her ears went back and the claws came out briefly, but then she realised that the noise was nothing to worry about. Then he applied the brush to her back and a look of pure ecstasy came to her face - she loved it.

But when he tried the same thing on her fluffy tummy, the results were not quite as successful - the well-known 'four paws and mouth' reaction kicked in.

Bought a new cat toy/bed that actually is more interesting to them than the box it came in.





Cat scratching/bed thing.
Ours love the one we got too. Especially our cream tabby boy Thor. He is a long cat and loves stretching out on it. smile

Just also want to say heartfelt sympathy and hugs to all who have had departed friends. Thinking of the lovely times had with them helps me, hope it does for you too. :hugs:

So sorry to hear of the recent losses.

We are 4 weeks in to being owned by these two; meet Pudding (on top) and Bernard (in the box).

I love this thread.

What breed are Pudding and Bernard? They’re lovely.

I picked up some artificial turf today. Not fitted it properly but have laid it out in the Catio. It seems to be a hit. With cats and dogs! The grass is definitely greener on their side.

Thank you, they're British Shorthairs. Love your catio, we've been thinking about building something similar for ours.

Ahh I thought so wasn’t sure about Pudding’s tail but I’m guessing it’s out of sight/curled round?

I’m so pleased I built the catio. It’s lovely having breakfast out with them and being able to leave the French Doors open so they can go in and out at will but in safety. I’m slowly adding bits and thinking of extending in to an L shape. Will also add a shed in next month or so enabling them to be out whilst I’m out.

Dogs seem to enjoy being in there too despite having three decent garden areas. They bark to be let in!




So I started to type how little timid shy PD has finally ventured in to the Catio and was curled up beside me sat on the steps



Then this happened







It’s always the quiet ones rolleyes
