What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

cat-hair-magnet sheets and pillowcases

on August 22, 2014

Nimue and I live with cats; therefore, we live with fur. On everything. We accept that. We brush it off when it’s too obvious. But some fabrics seem to especially attract it and resist giving it up. Synthetics and blends, in our experience, grab it more than cotton or wool. “Harder” finishes seem more resistant. But sometimes a given cloth surprises us.

We bought these bedclothes from a “quality” catalog supplier of such goods and had high hopes for them. They are 100% cotton and feel fairly smooth, but they turned out to be cat-hair magnets. Their affinity for it surpasses even our generous tolerance. So to the thrift store they go … and, I hope, a home that prefers its pets have scales.

We both worked hard brushing them clean before they went in those bags, honest!
