Ok then...


Blahblah

1,405 views

So I finally caved in after struggling with combs and bristle brushes and bought a Furminator at the recommendation of a couple of websites and the woman at the Pet Barn (who clearly had no ulterior motive in selling me a stupidly expensive cat grooming item). I was skeptical and for $Aus56 I was crossing my fingers (and everything else) that it would be worth it.

And then this happened.......

This is thing is FREAKING AMAZING. Both of them sat for ages purring away and loving every second of it. Oh, and that bottom photo? That all came out of Alfie's tail.

However I am feeling like a bad cat parent because I clearly haven't been doing much good with my previous combs and brushes :(

Oh my that's a lot of hair that isn't going to be spread around your house now!

Holy cow - you've got enough fur to make another Alfie.

What is this device?  Asking because The Spook currently has a mat or two on her back (and what an indoor, short haired cat does to manage that is beyond me).

@Blahblah - The Furminator is the greatest invention in the world. I've been using it on my 3 beasts for 3 years now. The first time, I swear I could have knitted a sweater with what came off them. Since then, I've been using it weekly and they LOVE it! I actually brush them in the shower - keeps them confined in one space then I just rinse off the walls and floor and scoop up what has escaped the pile from the drain filter. The amount that comes off decreases as you use it more so the process gets quicker each time. Now, though, I have to be careful. They enjoy the brushing so much they don't like when we have a shorter session but my biggest tabby started getting a bit too sparse on his back so I had to cut back!

LOVE our Furminator!  I use it on Marbles and she loves it!  It is amazing how much fur and hair one can remove!  Well worth the investment :)

I have a furminator, too.  I paid about $35US, but it's so worth it.  I use it mostly on the dog because the cats hate to be brushed, but it works really well, and I end up looking like Blahblah when I'm done.  I've always wished I could vacuum the dog, but he's afraid of the hose attachment.  we have one cat who will let me vacuum him if he's in the right mood.

      How old are Shalom and Justin’s kids?  I can’t imagine leaving my kids when their other parent is dying.  The poor daughter who was down with him.  It just doesn’t seem like they are thinking about the kids, especially if the kids are too young to understand.  I don’t image Mike and Debi being support for the kids emotionally during this.  I’m sure Shalom is torn and she was raised essentially being taught husband is above all.  Someone in those kids lives are hopefully there to hold them.

      I just think of a first grade class I subbed for this year with Aiden, Kayden, Grayden, and Zayden.

      was Braden absent?

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.
