    Cat Fur On Furniture

    hi everyone!


    I have got some major cat fur on my furniture - i've tried vacuuming. It just seems to get worse and worse. Any ideas????? Thank you.

    have you tried masking tape?? I have a roller wheel with masking tape on it backwards - made to remove lint, etc (Wal-Mart housewares)- it works great.

    A wet rag will take it off or buy one of those sticky lint removers. As for me, I just live with it because it's not easy with a long-haired white Persian. I consider Max's hair to be part of my decor

    I use the roller wheels too. If I could do it all over again, I would have at least trained the cats to stay off the couches. It's so embarrassing when guests (especially non-pet owners) sit down and get covered in cat fur. I don't really think it's right to suddenly change the cats ways.


    Thank you Wolfie!

    All the tips here work well. After having cats forever, I've resigned myself to the fact that cat hair is forever. I just live with it and my friends know in my house there's a sign: This house is maintained entirely for the comfort and convenience of our cats.

    I have this spongy thing from Gonzo caled.. what else? the Gonzo Miracle fur remover (or something along that line) I think you can get it at the pet store - it really works well. Its almost like a kitchen sponge, only the holes are smaller and have a different feel... a few swipes at hair and its gone! You should also try their stain remover!

    I am also resigned to the fact that cat hair is forever. Did you guys know that cat hair is also a condiment???

    I lift up my Oreck XL and vacuum the s@#$ out of my loveseat and sofa. It helps.

    I first use a lint brush and that gets most of it. Then I use a sticky roller, they make one that is extra sticky for pet fur.

    That combination works the best for me. It looks like a lot of other people too.

    Many Thanks to Kay for the Picture.

    On the "Today Show" this morning, a guy demonstrating household tips removed pet hair from a pillow just by putting a rubber glove on his hand and rubbing the pillow. I don't personally know how well it works but it's worth a try.

    I was just reading that a damp rubber glove will remove pet fur off furnature.

    I need to try some of these tips, I've tried using a vaccuum and it doesn't seem to help. I always feel sorry for my friends when they sit down and the have their bums covered in white fur!

    Thanks for the great signature Kay!

    My Mama Said!

    Mama was full of great sayings and one she used a lot when we had Chynna was that he was a good kitty, except that he left his "cloths" all over the house. She use to also say there was enough fur around to make "kitten britches"...

    I think we have every gadget out there to remove pet hair.....and all of them do, to a point. We haven't found THE one that works the best as yet.

    As for people coming over......they all understand that we have cats, who get on our furniture, so if they don't like it, well they just don't come over! Besides, I always offer that sticky tape wand when they get ready to leave.

    Cat hair is part of our life, and in our home to stay as long as we have cats!!

    I have a few suggestions how to remove cat hair without tape or roller tape. I go to the dollar store and buy the latex gloves you wash dishes with and clean with, ( I have never used them for that purpose). Put the gloves on and rub the funiture or what ever has fur on it. I have also used a cat brush a slicker brush to be exact. Both you can reuse over and over and over. I am cheap and try to find what will work the best for my money. And with having a cattery these are what I found work the best.
