Tips and tools for managing cat hair in your home.

For soft surfaces, like clothing and fabric or leather furniture, use a lint roller. Specialty tools, like furniture brushes, are available too. They feature rubber-tipped bristles to lift hairs that cling to fabric or leather, making it easier to collect the fur.

On hard surfaces try a slightly damp sponge—it can act like a pet hair magnet. Use it for dressers, tabletops, blinds or moldings. You can use a regular household sponge or choose a soot sponge, which is chemically treated to absorb particles into its pores.

Carpets can be best managed with frequent vacuuming. Look for vacuums with HEPA filters to capture pet dander, as well as those with attachments designed to pick up fur. Although many vacuums work on hard floors, too, you may have better luck with an electrostatic mop. Unlike a vacuum, the mop won't blow hair around.

If your dog or cat seems to shed excessively, grooming him or her on a regular basis will also help. Try a brush or comb that rakes hair from your pet's undercoat and consider adding anti-shedding shampoos and sprays to your pet’s grooming routine.

You can also make grooming a part of bonding with your pet: Use specialty gloves to remove loose hair as you stroke your dog or cat.

Q: How can I be sure of the quality of the Purina Cat Chow products?

A: Our top priority is the quality of the food that nourishes not only your pets, but the pets we share our lives with, too. So from source to bowl, the quality of our food is assured by taking the following steps:

Ingredient Sourcing

  • Purina ingredient sourcing and processing meet or exceed FDA, USDA or AAFCO standards for pet food. And every supplier of ingredients for Purina products must meet our stringent standards for ingredient specifications, product safety, sanitation and manufacturing practices.
  • Ingredient Testing
  • All of Purina's North American manufacturing facilities have on-site quality assurance laboratories and staff. And we're working to expand the use of technology to further screen ingredients for quality assurance.
Q: Where is your food manufactured?

A: 99% of all Purina-branded pet food products sold in the U.S. are made in Purina-owned U.S. manufacturing facilities. Purina's sophisticated tracking system ensures important measures of control: All raw ingredients are tracked from time of receipt at our plants, through their inclusion in finished products, and on to retailers.

Q: I am unable to find a particular product in my area. Can you help me locate it?
