121. wear clothes that are less likely to attract hair and visit when you are agreeable to leaving being covered
122. If you've visited before, you know you're gonna get hair all over you. Take a brush along with you. If you know your friend that well, she/he will understand what you are doing, and you can just mention, that you have a small allergy (lil white lie) to cat hair, that's why you're brusing it off.
123. Have the visits at your house and explain why to your friend nicely
124. i kinda hard to keep it all cleaned up maybe bring a sheet or blanket to sit on
125. Buy supplies for yourself to clean the hair off after you leave. Sometimes no matter how well you clean, there will always be cat hair.
126. If that doesn't work meet at your friends house
127. It is her house...apparently she is comfortable with it.
128. Bring a roller with adhesive to get the hair off. Not worth losing a friend for a few hairs
129. Buy a lint brush/roller and use it
130. suggest certain supplies
131. Spray your clothing with static guard
132. BRING A LINT ROLLER!
133. bring along a dehair roller, wear old clothes or try to bring it up tactfully
134. depends upon relationship with friend. maybe throw on old tee-shirt over clothes, ask for towel or sheet to sit on. Tell friend can't get cat hair on clothes, hard to get off.
135. she should really know - this is very inconvenient - and I'm the one with the hairy cats!
136. The hostess should provide sticky rollers in the rest room. Perhaps a chair could be covered nicely and the cover removed when guests arrive.
137. I have 3 cats; they leave hair wherever the lay. I have purchased those little cotton blankets used for wrapping babies, and place them on the chairs, etc. and then when company comes over I remove them, or place clean ones down. What can I say, I'm a cat lover, love me and my cats, or deal with it. I try to make my company comfortable, but sometimes can't always.
138. It's not really anyone's place to tell someone else how to live in their own home, unless it is a health violation. Just take a few lint brushes/rollers with you when you go or bring a big loose t-shirt with you to throw on when you get there over your clothes and take it off after you leave.
139. Bring a sheet with you to drape the sofa, chair (or bed) you will be sitting on, and bring a pet-hair roller.
140. Invite her to your house instead
141. Tell her your allergies are acting up and it must be the cat dander. Suggest to meet her in a restaurant.
142. visit your friend with a lint roller in hand
143. Wear clothes that don't attract hair as animals will shed not matter how clean your house is and how well groomed your pet is
144. Don't wear black when you visit her!
145. Cats have hair. Its impossible to keep it contained 100% all of the time.
146. Have you ever heard of lint brushes. That's what they are used for. The hair won't hurt you.
147. bring a lint roller with you, i always have one in the car
148. Invite her to your house.
149. If she's OK withthe hair in her home, you would be overstepping your boundaries by commenting. However, if she apologizes or wonders how to handle, then you could make suggestions.
150. Buy a lint roller and clean yourself afterwards.
151. Meet her some place else. A restaurant, movie, etc.
152. Arrange for visits away from her house - meet for drinks or dinner
153. Don't wear dark clothing.
154. Love me, love my cats....and their hair
155. Ask her to visit you
156. Cat hair is inevitable and very difficult to keep under control...if you care about your friend you will just live with it and get yourself a lint pickup tool.
157. Cat hair is a constant at our house and if someone offered additional supplies, I would be grateful.
158. Depending on how close a friend and how much you want to help, you could offer to help with cleaning and then give her information on the best ways to help mitigate the cats' hair shedding - for everyone's comfort. Also wear your oldest clothes when you visit - those that you wouldn't mind getting cat hair on!
159. Wear older clothes and throw them in the wash when you get home.
160. Ask her if she has a sheet you can put over the chair when you come to keep the cat hair off.
