  • Sadly I'm down to 10 cats now. Its hard with my side effects from 3 brutal Chemos. But I do what I can! I love my Cats. Hair isn't that bad! Vacuum well. Use special dusters?

  • Vacuum and we get ours shaved. That cuts down on a lot of dander issues. There is one chair they have deemed their favorite so I put a beach towel down on it so it gathers the hair and mess and wash that once a week. Also clumping kitty litter helps with the tracking mess.

  • Groom the cats and a good vacuum cleaner that really picks up cat hair. Many of then do not do it well.
