Do you share your home with pets that shed? If you do, you are probably well aware that you share your home with their hair as well. You may also find that their hair wants to go everywhere you do. Do you constantly find pet hair on your clothes and in your car? Do you keep pet hair rollers in your purse because it is a never ending struggle? Pet hair can be a real issue to vacuum too. Many vacuums simply do not get the job done. The last thing you want is for friends and family to find pet hair all over themselves after a visit to your home. Let’s take a look at some of the best vacuums for pet hair.
A recent Consumer Reports study rates the Miele AirClean Dynamic U1 Cat & Dog Upright Vacuum at the top of their list. This powerful AirClean pet vacuum features a unique electrobrush that follows the contours of your floor, automatically adjusting for different carpet depths and surface coverings. This vacuum provides even, constant suction and gentle cleaning. Accessories include a mini turbo brush, integrated dusting brush, upholstery tool and crevice nozzle.
The Kenmore Elite 21814 Pet Friendly CrossOver Canister Vacuum also earned high marks from Consumer Reports as a canister vacuum. From carpeting on stairs to your hardwood floors and even the space behind your fridge, this vacuum easily takes on your weekly floor chores. Stubborn pet hair and even the fluffiest dust bunnies, are no match for this powerful vacuum. Vacuum attachments like the Pet PowerMate and a 2 motor system that creates some serious suction, making vacuuming a breeze. The swiveling 8 ft. hose makes it simple to suck up cobwebs from your ceiling. If you like this model, you can purchase it from Sears.
The Shark Rocket Ultra-Light TruePet Deluxe Vacuum features a pet brush attachment, hard floor attachment and microfiber pad. The versatile design converts to a handheld vacuum for use in small spaces like vehicles and stairs. The lightweight stick design makes it effortless to use. I have this vacuum and I love it, it has great suction, is effortless to push and does an amazing job no matter what type of flooring I am using it on.
The Dyson V8 Absolute Vacuum Cleaner is one I personally own, and it works great! It has a rechargeable 21.6 volt Lithium ion battery and comes with a second bare floor brush roller as well as, a small motorized brush. There is a turbo mode for when you need extra power and a dirt cup that empties in one easy step. The cord free design allows you to vacuum anywhere. Get this vacuum on Amazon and live in harmony with your pets. This is another vacuum I own, and I love it. It has no cord so you can take it anywhere. It has great suction and works on all areas of my home.

Our cat Max is a member of the family and I know we’re not alone in feeling that way. Being a beloved four-legged family member, we want to give him the very best we can. This is especially try with nutrition. The other day in Petsmart I saw Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food. I have to say, I was intrigued. The flavors sounded great and the topper variety came in a clear container and did not look like any cat food I have ever seen. I learned why I had not seen Purina Muse® anywhere else, it is only available at Petsmart.
I was amazed at the variety that was available. Purina Muse® was available in chowder, in broth with toppers, in gravy and paté. All the recipes are made with real chicken and real fish like mackerel, salmon, tuna, sea bass and more. The food does not have any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. The recipes are 100% complete and balanced for adult cats. There are 30 delicious recipe and 24 grain-free varieties. With Muse® you don’t have to choose between natural nutrition and food that tastes great. Your cat can have both when you choose Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food. I picked up a selection of recipes and flavors and wondered how Max would like them.
So the real test is what Max thinks right. Just like with kids if they won’t eat something that’s good for them it really doesn’t matter how good it is. I was so anxious to get Max’s feline opinion on things. My husband started making me nervous telling me that Max does not like wet food and did not think Max would give the food the four paws up I was looking for.
As soon as I put the bowl of Natural Tuna & Shrimp Recipe in Gravy down Max dove right in and would not look up for any pictures. He was in feline Heaven and my husband could not believe the way he loved it! Purina Muse® made Max a member of the “Clean Plate Club”! It looks like we have a new cat food. Natural has never been so delicious.
I am thrilled that Max loves a food I feel great giving him. If you have a special Kitty or kitties in your life and care about natural nutrition you should put Muse® to the test with their clean plate guarantee.
Money Saving Coupon-Free Cat Food
I want to share a special coupon for Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food when you BUY 3 you get 3 FREE with this COUPON at Petsmart! I hope you give it a try with your cat and if you do, please let me know if they’re a new member of the “Clean Plate Club” like Max!
Cats some people love them and some people are not cat people or at least they don’t think they are until they become an accidental cat lover. That’s just one of the 101 amazing stories of magical moments, miracles and mischief in The Cat Did What? from Chicken Soup for the Soul. The book is filled with stories of all kinds. Stories that will make you laugh, bring a tear to your eye and have you shaking your head. I loved the story of how a new kitten rescued to comfort a 12-year-old cat who was incredibly lonely after losing her long time feline companion. The new kitten and then adult cat wanted nothing to do with the ailing cat but at the end of her life, this cat called Murray became a different cat and laid with the older cat, comforted her and stayed with her the whole day. After she died he never showed that side of him again. That was a very emotional story but there are stories to make you laugh and nod in agreement as well.

The award-winning Sleepypod is more than a bed, it’s a lifestyle. It’s your pet’s personal space, designed to fit his or her individual needs. The beauty of the Sleepypod luxury pet carrier is its versatility. A dog that needs to be aware of his surroundings at all times can be just as easily accommodated as the cat who likes her privacy. Most cats and many dogs associate travel with negative experiences such as a trip to the vet or the kennel. Sleepypod allows pets to travel safely in the pampered comfort of their own bed made of luxurious ultra-plush and foam alleviating the stress associated with travel and confinement in hard, plastic boxes with limited visibility. Once your pet becomes accustomed to using the Sleepypod as an ultra comfortable bed; zip Sleepypod’s sturdy mesh top onto the luggage-grade ballistic nylon bed with machine washable liner and Fifi (or Fido) is ready to travel in their own bed. Strapping the seat belt around the Sleepypod turns it into a car seat in seconds. Whether it’s a two-week vacation or an errand across town, you can bring your pet without putting up with a fuss from even the finickiest of furry travelers since Sleepypod is already a trusted part of your pet’s life. Visit their safety page for more information about their commitment to your pet’s safety. The stylish Sleepypod comes in six fashionista-friendly colors.
I recently had the opportunity to review the Sleepypod Luxury Pet Carrier. I chose the blossom pink and I really love the color even more in person. The carrier is very well constructed. We have 3 dogs and a cat. 2 of our dogs are toy size and our cat of course fits in the carrier as well. I would love to have had this carrier when we took our 2 little dogs with us to Florida last spring. On that trip we had to bring two carriers and a pet bed not to mention all the gear for two toddlers. With this carrier we could have had them sitting in the third row, in just the bottom half as a comfy pet bed. It would have all our bases covered with one unit serving as both the carrier and pet bed. Less stuff, more comfortable pups and safety, you really can’t want more. The pet bed is so comfy and plush, Sassy just loved it and when I put the bed on the couch, she jumped in and soon put her head down and snuggled in. What a pleasure it will be now to travel with the little puppies now, we just have to get another so they both have one, and we will be all set for our next venture. I think it is great that you can use the bottom half at home as a pet bed that they get comfortable with and know is theirs. Then when you do travel and animals get stressed during traveling because they are not really sure what is going on, they will at least have that piece of home with them. If you are looking for a quality, versatile pet carrier that will pamper your pet, check out the Sleepypod. Your four-legged family member will be very glad you did.
