  • lol...petpeeve...there is no hope for you!! I swear! I have two cats and a dog, and there is just hair everywhere. The only thing you can do is vacuum a lot, girl!

  • As long as you brush them constantly or get them groomed...its gonna feel overwhelming. They will still shed but not as much. As far as furniture and floors go Id get a small stick vacuum to use daily and either a pet hair adhesive roller or the pledge pet hair remover roller. The pledge one works great! Also try to keep the bedroom doors closed so that you can sleep in a hair free room

  • it clings right onto blankets, clothes ,furniture, bath towels, socks,slippers. I even try the lint brush. not their fault they shed. My animals help me with anxiety disorder and depression.

  • As far as clothes and towels go....If the towels are kept in a closed or hanging on a door then you shouldnt have this prob. Clothes are inevitable when youre wearing them but when youre not make sure they are away. I have pets too. But making small changes will really help. Keeping the doors closed will really help
