Cat Tips

To train your cat to scratch acceptable objects, sprinkle catnip and a few food treats on a sisal-wrapped scratching post, a corrugated cardboard scratcher or even a non-treated fireplace log. Place it next to the object you wish to protect.

Creative Cat-hair Removers

By Dorian Wagner

Creative Cat-hair Removers

I have a magnet on my fridge that says “No outfit is complete without cat hair.” I’m assuming they didn’t add “or piece of furniture, or comforter, or couch pillow or curtain …” simply because it would just make the magnet too big.

There’s good news, though! Here’s a list of my favorite creative cat-hair removers:

  • Rubber gloves. For extra cat-hair removing goodness, dampen the glove. Simply rub over your furniture and voila!
  • Dryer sheets. Makes your place smell fresh, and keeps the cat hair under control. Per the above, it also works best if you slightly dampen the sheets. You could also use a damp paper towel, chamois or dishrag.
  • Spray bottle with water. Lightly spritz the furred-up item and wait 10 minutes. Then, just vacuum or wipe the cat hair away. You could also mix in a small amount of fabric softener in the bottle for freshness.
  • Broom. Sweep a bristle broom over your carpet before vacuuming to loosen packed-in hair and to remove excess fur.
