Picking up 'Bunny' cat fur

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My Aya is what I like to refer to as my Japanese un-bobbed tail cat. As she would probably meet the bred standard except that she has a full tail.

Anyway, now that we're almsot full-grown (7m/o) we have lots of super-fine short kitty fur (mostly white) that sticks to everything and everywhere and is resilient to my tried and true methods of de-furring things. (It even survives the washing machine!) I heard someone mention that this breed has what they term 'bunny fur'. Anyways I love her coat, but I really don't want to wear it on my clothes or furniture.

Also, BTW we hates being brushed, despite the fact I started her with a small flea comb at 4w/o.

I'm also in Japan so I'm certain lots of brand named products are unavailable here...

Have you tried lint rollers? Any of the sticky or red fabric brushes work?

If you have an untarnished surface, scotch guarding it has been rumored to help a bit.

What methods have you tried?

a lint roller would be my first attempt but I haven't found them here.

I tried washing in the machine. Apparently this doesn't work on super duper fine cat fur.

I tried damp cloth.

I tried these furniture wipe things from the dollar store.

LOL - well there is one method that is completely ghetto but I have found to work in a tight spot... Packing tape around a hairbrush.

Yes you have to keep creating new sheets, but when you need something quick - it works. Just wrap the tape sticky side out over the brush and roll the brush along the furniture. You can also just take a long flat piece and pull it across. It's not that pricey, and any large roll of tape will do though I would stick to packing or masking tape.

It's also great if you have a carpeted bedroom! You know how it is difficult to get the edges with a vacuum? Well just place the tape above the edge and run the end of a pen (not the ink side) along it through the edge, lift and you will find all the dust and hair is on the tape. Voila!
