I have had my cat T-bone for close to 13 years, and she has been with me through the many phases and places of my life. Always chipper and upbeat, her crazy antics are amusing to say the least.
But, as much as I love her, I seriously hate how much she sheds and the allergies that I have developed while owning a cat. Since I dig my cat and couldn’t bear to get rid of her, I have tried numerous things to reduce the allergens she created. These are the ones that I found the most successful:
I definitely noticed a drastic improvement in my allergies, and my overall health improved significantly. But even with the items listed above, I still noticed a fair amount of fur around my apartment. So…
One of my friends recently tipped me off to the furminator. If you’re not familiar with this thing, you should check it out. It is a pet brush that virtuality eliminates shedding. After a few weeks of use my only response is WOW! Not only does this thing remove mounds of hair from my cat, but I can already see a reduction in the amount of fur that is left on my furniture and rugs. I’m curious to see how this little gem helps with my quest to completely rid myself of cat allergies (or at least the causes), and will make sure to report back once I have a few months of sample data. :)
