Do you use damp rubber gloves to get rid of cat hairs? I don’t. I use this:

Brush for cat hairs

This brush is more convenient and as effective. You just grab it and brush. No messing around finding the gloves and making them wet and then having to wash off the hairs. Where do the hairs go? Down the plug hole where they might clog it up?

To get the hairs off the brush you just brush it in the opposite direction. You can do it with your thumb or on the carpet and then just pick up the hairs that are in a bundle and put it in the bin. An all dry process. I have always found this brush very useful. It beats the hoover sometimes because it is silent so you can brush the bed while your cat is on it (I sometimes hoover my bed with an upright hoover!).

I thought about buying some of these wholesale from China, customising them with “PoC” on the back etc., and selling them on PoC. It is the only cat product I have consistently used and found truly effective and useful.

There are probably lots of alternative ideas for picking up cat hair. What does Elisa do? She has a lot of cats and a dog. She has a mega hair problem (if you see cat hair as a problem, which I don’t).

Note: the Buzy brush is not a conventional brush. It is made of velvet which lies in one direction. It does not stick up vertically like a scrubbing brush. The bristles are very fine and durable. The brush in the picture is 25 years old! It still works fine and I use it frequently.

  1. That sounds pleasant, and if it is worth any mention at all, I use my metal, vinyl-tipped hairbrush to brush my cat as I brush my own hair. He likes it especially because he knows that I will weedle in a shoulder massage. (which he loves more than everything else!)

  2. Thank you Michael
    I brush my cats with a small comb and a soft brush. They are only for my cats and kittens. I bought them from open market, though they are not made for the purpose of cats and kitten, but I just rub gently on them and get the result.

    2. My cats and kittens feel a relaxant during the process of rubbing. I just watch their reaction which seems equal to the reaction of a human body massage. because I also gently use my hand to pet them.

    This is the way I deal with my babies (Cats & Kittens). 🙂

  3. It looks a bit like a velcro-brush which is what I use on soft furnishings and sometimes on stubborn hairs on carpet. have a velcro-brush attachment to the VAX which nicely on carpets and bedding. I sometimes dampen my hand to pick up cat fur (works nicely when picking up dead fur straight from the cat!)

  4. We’ve never in almost 40 years of cats, long haired and short haired, had any problems with hairs around the house.
    Simply grooming the cats daily and then cleaning the brush and comb and vacuuming the carpets daily does the job fine.
