last night i went out to the pet store and bought a furminator. mind you, it is expensive (35 bucks for a cat brush), but it seems quite worth it. i brushed both my cats last night and i can't believe my cats aren't bald this morning. so much hair came off--more than with any other brush i have used. if it reduces the amount of hair floating around my house by 25%, i will be happy. and so far, so good.
i think with the 100 degree weather, the cats appreciate having less hair. i cut all my hair off too on friday because i just couldn't take it anymore. is it october yet?
