    I have a Maine Coon, and she has a heavy coat. I brush her every single night without fail and there's always at least one good brushfull of hair. That does help a lot. I also give wash her in the bathtub about every three months or so. She doesn't sleep with me at night but she does come to wake me up and wants to spend time with me snuggling in the morning, so a little cat hair gets on my sheets but not significant. I keep a quilt on the bed during the day and she sleeps on the quilt; at night I fold it up so my bed basically stays clean. I keep my clean clothes in an armoire with the door shut and when I come home from work, I take my clothes off and put them in the hamper the second I come in the door, before they have a chance to get fuzzy. I have a lint roller in the house, in the car, and at my desk.

    Eternal vigilance is the price of teh kitteh luv, but it's so worth it...I can't do without the daily purr.

    I'm thinking that the bulk of my discomfort may be allergies and not the fur itself.

    I just went on a weekend trip, came home, feeling pretty good, sat down, and within about an hour I have a light cough. I may also explain why my sleep quality seems much better in summer when I can have the windows open. It's not like fur is getting out through my screens, but the fresh air would cycle out the dander faster. May sample some OTC anti-allergens and see if there's a difference.

    I brush my cat often, but she still gives off hair like crazy. I can brush her, wait an hour, pet her, and fur will come off. Arrrgh. :steam:

    Edit: Asking and looking around, I'm hearing good things about this Furminator thingy. I may try one of those for undercoat management!

    Get a hair/lint remover glove. It's made of fabric that is smooth if you rub it one way, but hooks and removes hair if you use it the other way- kind of like a fur of coat. You use the rough hooking direction to remove the hair, then wipe/rub with your hand the smooth direction to clump up all the hair that's been collected. I used this thing on my giant space rug once, and I ended up with a fist-sized ball of fur that could've been used a toupe.

    Here's a picture of it, I found mine at Target


    Also, I'm tempted to find a food-safe dye so I can completely dye my cat's coat black or something..

    Update - I picked up a furminator. It pulls out a lot of dead fur. The first couple days I used it I filled an entire wastepaper basket. Over the last couple weeks it's intercepted a lot of the fur that would normally get into/onto my stuff. I don't really have a way to measure, but it's a notable amount, maybe 75%? I'm hoping to see a huge improvement in general after a few more clothes washing / floor sweeping / carpet vacuuming cycles.

    Decline: I've been using one of those. It works somewhat but doesn't quite grab at the thin whispy bits. Great for getting the bulk of the fur off furnature but just wasn't enough. I could grab a toupe worth of hair off my couch every few days!

    Awesome, I'm thinking of buying one of those. Keep us updated.

    My mother has an orange tabby cat named Peaches that I have dubbed "the Shed-o-potamus" because huge clouds of fur waft off of her at any given time of day, even when she's not being touched. It's probably Canada's fault.
