Is anyone else afraid to invite someone over for dinner?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
It seems that more and more often of late, every time I take a bite of nearly anything we cook it has CAT FUR in it! I'm terrified to invite anyone over for dinner anymore, or bake any bread for friends, neighbors, etc. I can just imagine them biting into a nice LONG piece of fur!!! Anyone else have this problem?

Ok when I have anyone over that is going to be eating, I clean and then have someone to come in and clean behind me, if its not really close friends and family. If its close friends and family they have to get over it, I have cats.

No. We clean off the kitchen table and make sure there is no cat fur, and we can cook without fur because we try and keep Reeses off the counters/stove.

I don't actually know anyone (that I would invite over) who doesn't have at least a cat so they are all used to it!

Mine also don't really go in the kitchen at all (but they will try and mooch food from guests)

I wonder - did anyone add fur to their Catitude recipes?

Really I don't see a lot IN the food...just everywhere else. Lately too I just see balls of fur float across the house...kind of like tumbleweeds.

That's the only thing that gets me embarrassed

That's so funny. We used to have tumbleweeds until we got carpeting... now it just sticks to the carpet. Our cats are constantly on the counters, and half the time they're on the counters WHILE we're cooking. So fur in the food is pretty hard to avoid. I only have one other friend who has animals, so most people we who come over for dinner wouldn't understand about fur in the food. That's why I like TCS... you understand all these cat crazies.

Cat hair is a garnish!

I am...and I am also nervous to get people a drink here. I have a habit of blowing into the glass before I fill it just in case there is any fur in it..but company might look at me weird if I blow in their glass

I am meticulous about cleaning before I cook anything so that I don't get cat hair into foods. However, no matter how hard I try some usually ends up in it anyway

I don't care one way or another if it's just me, but when I have people over or am baking or cooking for someone else, I make double and triple sure that they aren't getting cat hair in their food. I always plan ahead when people are coming for dinner and I do an extra extra intense vacuuming to make sure that not only the visible cat hair is gone, but all of the loose floaty ones too that tend to fly and land in whatever I'm making, LOL Definitely no impromptu dinner parties at my home.

Oh with tiles floors we have a major problem with these, we called them "dust-bunnies"
You can sweep them all up but theres always one dust-bunnie that will make a grand entrance when we have guests tough I say........

!! we got cats, cats got fur, fur makes dust-bunnies, get used to it !!

We have a major tumbleweed problem too. They grow faster the more you vacuum, so we just gave up!
We don't have anyone over because when we moved 8 months ago, we sold our dining table & chairs and we STILL haven't bought a new one!

We don't usually have anyone over for dinner. But I have never seen cat hair in my food or had a problem with it getting in it.

When people ask me what my home decoration "style" is, I usually say Mid-Century Modern Cat Hair!!!


Before I have a big dinner party I admit I freak out about the hair everywhere but I have to say the good old Dyson vaccuum really does seem to grab it all: my old vaccuum used to just push it around, it seems. And there's no shame in paying someone to come clean your house!! And then, relax because chances are your guests are enjoying the company and the food and not even noticing the cat hair! Oh, and if you REALLY want to make sure they don't notice that cat hair serve them a lot of booze

I've never been asked that question, but I think I'd probably be a little leery of inviting someone who did ask that kind of question over for dinner!!!

I don't let it stop me. In fairness, even my cousin who is petrified of cats eats at my place is pretty ok with "living with kitty" issues, so I don't have much reason to be too worried.

The cat's don't worry me it's the size of my apartment. I mean if the cats drop a load you might as well evacuate. I would love to have more people over to eat and have a few drinks.

Whenever we have dinner parties, we make sure to have them in the summer. With grill food. Outside! And voila, no cat hair

That's a genius idea.

Not really- John's cousin's live in the apartment above us, so usually on weekends they stop by for breakfast, they know that cat hair comes with every meal
