Although my cat is a short hair she sheds like crazy! I feel like every surface of my home just has white and grey fur on it. I always have lint rollers around because I do not want to go to work covered in hair. I have to vacuum constantly. I am lucky and my cat LOVES being brushed. I have tried a few different brushes on my little girl but none of them really made a difference in her shedding. I saw the FurMinator online and decided to give it a try because it seemed a lot of people were saying good things about it. The first time I used it I was shocked by how much fur was coming off my cat. The other brushes I tried never got that much fur! Since I began using the FurMinator a few times a week the amount of shedding has gone down tremendously. Of course it is not completely gone but the improvement is awesome. I highly suggest purchasing one of these brushes. The price may seem a little high but it is worth it to get rid of some of the cat hair that seems to be everywhere!
