reached a shedding breakdown (cat hair everywhere, and my vacuum broke!) yesterday, so i finally went to petco and bought a furminator, based on the recommendations of pretty much everyone here. (i also bought a new vacuum, but i'm hoping not to have to use it nearly as much, since that's what -- aside from being cheap -- broke the old one) and everyone was right, this thing is the best. hobbes likes to roll around on the ground and have his belly scritched, and every single time i come away with handfuls of hair. but he did this after i spent just a couple of minutes on him with the furminator, and hardly a hair came out. hallelujah!
so now i'm wondering, how often should i furminate? is it safe to do daily (or as often as the cats will allow), or should it only be done every now and then? anyone have any thoughts?
