Furminate your cat


You donít have to say goodbye to your cat if you have allergies. Instead, you just need to furminate your feline friend which isnít as harsh as it sounds. Rather it involves using a simple deshedding tool, called the FURminator, to cut down on unwanted pet hair and allergy-triggering dander.

Cat hair from my beloved orange tabby covered just about everything in my house in my pre-FURminator days. This blanket of hair and dander was contributing to my allergy symptoms, and I was beginning to wonder if there was any solution short of vacumming round the clock or banishing the cat outdoors. Luckily, my son suggested I try a FURminator which saved the day.

I was skeptical at first about the claims that a FURminator could reduce shedding by up to 90 percent after two treatments but it really does. The furnishings in my house no longer have an orange hue from cat hair. Most importantly, the reduction in hair and dander has improved my allergies.

The device is actually recommended by doctors for allergic people who own pets because reducing the amount of pet hair in your home also cuts down on the amount of dander and other airborne particles that can contribute to allergies. If you are allergic to cats, the cause of your sensitivity is a protein called Fe d 1, found in their saliva. This cat allergen is transferred to the catsí hair and skin every time they groom themselves.

This well-designed grooming tool works to reduce hair and dander by removing them from your catís undercoat which is the major source of shedding. It has a fine-toothed comb that grabs and removes the undercoat hair quickly and easily. During my catís first treatment, I removed more hair than I thought my cat had, and he still had plenty left.

The FURminator is a win/win for both you and your cat. You will be able to breathe easier and your cat will have less loose hair which means fewer hairballs. You can buy one at most pet stores or shop online to look for the best price. There are dog versions available too and prices range from $15-$30 depending on where you purchase one.
