Fabric softener sheets also can do this. But maybe u should get 1 of those hairless cats. I, too, have an orange tabby. He definitely has his own thoughts about what roles my husband & I should play in his life & he's an absolute terror at the vets. Grooming? O, heck no--not w/this 1, anyway. Something 2 think about. Try to control or restrain this cat & you've got not furry purry presence but growlin, hissin, spittin, screamin, bitin', scratchin' 13 pounds of royally p o'd kittycat. Just another perspective. Having said that, he is definitely a lot of company, gets in my lap every chance he gets. He won't do that w/Karl at all, preferring to play games & beg him for food instead. He will do neither w/me, except he plays a game we've come to call tail zees, where he comes up, I grab his tail, he extricates himself, does it again, etc. But tag, hide & seek, throw the mouse, etc., he's relligated to Karl's domain & being a lap kitty to mine. He begs Karl for ham or bacon every morning--whether Karl's actually having that or not. He just gets over by his dish & stares at Karl, who is sighted & on whom that would have an effect. & he knows, btw, that it wouldn't affect me. We got Rudy when he'd fit in the palm of our hands--now he's a mini lion. He initially had every parasite known to felinedom, but our vet told us that after he got over that, he'd be really healthy, &, but for some bladderstones, he was right about that. If u have some trusted colleagues at work, u might let them know you'd very much appreciate knowing from them if you've taken your pet w/u to work that day, as it were. Sometimes folks won't tell u cuz they think it'll embarrass u, but if u let them know you'd appreciate it, they can notify u discretely to apply whatever it is you've got handy to remove the hair. Good luck, & let us know if u decide to get 1 how it's working.
