Our question this week was:

My cat seems to like to be vacuumed and it really does help get up cat hair. Is this "okay".

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking if it is okay to vacuum your cat as a method to control hair in your home. The answer is yes, as long as your cat doesn't mind. Some cats are terrified of the vacuum and others don't mind it.

In fact – we have a video of a cute cat that likes to be vacuumed. Check him out. Go to: A Cat that Likes to Be Vacuumed!
