Since I became weary in brushing our Persian cat over the many years, I became desperate to find a frugal solution!
Since her favorite place to go daily is into a spare closet to sleep a while, I realized that it is always only partially opened, about her width. And since the inside of the closet door has a long white wire rack on it that goes almost all the way to the floor. Hum-m-m-m, I wondered. You guessed it! I twist-tied the same nylon-bristled hair brush that I had become tired of using/cleaning so often, to the lowest and outermost edge of the rack just at her body height and guess what, it works.
As I looked back again over this tip, I realized that the litter area description sounds as if IT'S tossed beside the closet, so, CLARIFICATION: The area beside the closet is her litter BOX area which I clean regularly, and then ALSO include lifting the hair off the wire rack-attached cat brush. (It's not easy to grow older gracefully. :? )
Linda, what a brilliant idea for brushing your cat, You should patent it!
I too have a thick furred cat and brush her daily, however I don't have a spare closet.. or spare 'anything'space really, as I co-share and it's an apartment not a house, so I guess I just go on brushing.. Love your idea tho.
What a good (& sneaky!) idea. I wonder if one of those long brushes used to get into tight spaces could be used? Bend it into a U shape and fasten just inside the edge of a cat house or even dog kennel. I bet one day you would see an ecstatic pet purring or grr-ing away as they happily get that annoying itchy spot that couldn't be reached before, too! As long as the hair doesn't tangle, it could be wortha try.
