How many tape rollers do you have in your house? A better question: Can you have too many?
We love our pets - like our children. But I'm pretty sure none of us love all the hair. Am I right? For the pet owners with breeds that don't shed, what do you do with all your free time? The rest of us reluctantly participate in the pet hair Olympics. On your mark...get set...Vacuum the hair, brush Mitsy to prevent more hair from free floating in the house (has anyone ever really noticed less hair because we brush them?), vacuum again, tape roll our clothes, give our pet a hug. Crap, more hair on the clothes! Quick tape roll again. Say our good by. "Oh, don't look at me with that poor, sad face." And without hesitation you're hugging your pet again...skillfully shaking your hands to keep the hair from grasping your clothes. Good thing you have a tape roller in your car too.
Dogs and cats shed, of course. That heavy, non-stop shedding in the Spring is unavoidable especially if Snickers is an outdoor pet, which means she goes outside regularly. If your cat (or dog) is the indoor type, their shedding will be less pronounced in Spring, but they will shed more throughout the year. We know that several factors also come into play with shedding such as health, diet, stress, and breed. You know your pet, so if the shedding seems excessive by all means go see your vet. Don't try and rationalize a significant change in the natural shedding process.
So unless you have the hairless Sphynx cat breed, maybe it's time to wear your hair proudly. Who can fault someone who has 3 Labradors, each a different color? It's ok to keep dreaming of that Gold medal - a Roomba vacuum! Just in time as a soft billow of hair rolls by like tumbleweed in the desert.
