Hairballs? Floating, flying cat hair? Hair stuck to your fabric furniture? Sound familiar? My friend said: "You have to try the FURminator." I found it at Petco. It looks like a short metal comb mounted on a thick, sturdy handle that is easy to grip. It is called a 'DeShedding Tool." I tried it on the cat authors and got tons of loose hair. But, most important, I used it on the cat trees, all of the fabric furniture that I have...and, guess what? It removed the cat hair that the vacuum could not remove. It was a miracle.
