    Uhg, I don't know about the rest of you, but every once in a while I just feel so totally overwhelmed by all the pet hair!! It's EVERYWHERE!!! It's in my cloths, on the furniture, in the blankets and even making dust dinosaurs under the couch! It's taking over my house!!

    I just spent 45 minutes de-hairing a blanket. If I spent that much time de-hairing myself I wouldn't have any hair left on my body.

    Uhg, anyone have any pet hair survival strategies? I should buy stock in sticky tape [​IMG]

    I use a damp cloth or towel to rub most of the cat hair off the furniture, then dustbust what I couldn't get. I've actually rolled packing tape over my hand and lower arm (sticky side out) and dabbed at the furniture too. [​IMG]

    I use a dishglove to remove hair from the furniture. I just rub the couch and it just all balls up. If we had the dogs inside the house it would be so hairy, 4 cats is enough. I hate washing the dogs blankets in the washer.

    I have leather furniture.....it is amazing how nice it has been not having hair stuck to it. [​IMG] We will NOT, however, talk about what kitty claws do to leather. [​IMG] I have pretty much banned my family from wearing black and every day, when dropping my kids off at school I catch myself brushing them off as much as possible. *sigh* I consider the hair we eat just an extra source of fiber. LOL You know that whole silver lining thing. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thank y'all so much for reminding me why the only pets I have are outside chickens. My companion (house) dog of 12 years was a plush coated GSD. Not the long haired, like a collie, but plush. Still thick and long. Before that it was a house husky. I totally understand. I finally got a Rainbow vacuum, with the water in the tank, and vacuumed everything. Furniture, tables, curtains, clothes, etc. It's the only thing that saved my life.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one in pain here. I have two indoor cats and GSD. I washed two pet blankets and I swear all that did was swap hair from one to the other. I think one went in cleaner than it came out. It looked like a shag blanket!! Of course then there are the horses that rub their heads on your arm and leave half a horse behind when they walk off. Uhg, the chickens are the least sheddy of the bunch! At least I don't track feathers everywhere I go.
