'[OT] Cat hair question'
2008\07\06@144421 by Lindy Mayfield

I have cats.  So I am cleaning a lot (not a bad thing).  I've noticed
the cat hair seems to form dust bunnies in certain places such as
corners.  I suspect this may be due to the air currents from moving
around, walking, etc.  What I'm curious about are the dust bunnies that
form.  



I wondered if there would be a way to improved on nature here.  I wonder
if I had something like a positive ion generator like is used to clear
smoke and dust, would that make much difference in bringing the cat hair
together into bunnies and make cleaning easier.  



Just a thought. (-:

A maid would be a good idea for this :-)

Cats aren't like girlfriends.  You can't just keep trading up when you find something better.

A negative ion generator powerful enough to knock down a cat
hair from across the room eh ? Ooooh, don't go in there. That's
the Electricity Room

Take a tip from Broadway - Cats. Hairspray. 700 Sundays.
(that last one's nothing to do with cats, I just like Billy Crystal and
thought I'd give him a plug)

You could always take the cat outside and brush it. Bit of bonding

I do the brushing.  They like that.  And the 700 Sundays is relevant because that's what it takes to keep the place clean.

What I was getting at, though, is that the cat hair tends to clump together anyway.  Why is that?  I thought adding a bit of negative ions would help it along.

But probably not.  Every time I think I've thought up something that would change the world as we know it, it turns out it's either a stupid idea or someone else thought of it first. )-:

In a "claws bonded to face" way? :D

At least both of ours like to bond their claws into the carpet while we comb
them, so they don't slide along the floor. They both enjoy a god comb,
especially during their summer moult.

I tried cutting their nails once.  Trust me, you don't want to get into a cat fight with a real cat.  I ended up dripping blood, and they ended up pissed off at me until dinner time.

>From years of observing cat hair I think the reason that it clumps is
because it tends to weave into itself.  Once you get a handfull of hairs
together they will form a mat.  

I would suspect that the way to enhance the clumping is to have constant
air circulation to let the clumps roll around, combine and pack themselves
into larger and larger dust bunnies until they get big enough to pick up
and put in the trash without having to bend over.  :-)

I once had one cat, and met the same problem as yours.
I abandon it finally.
A litter pity...

Sorry, the words should be "A little pity", mis-spell.
