Question:We have 4 cats and a dog. How do I keep the shedding hair down to a minimum?

Answer:

I've tried brushing them...they hate it. Then the dog gets nervous (I'm guessing thinking he's next) and gets the other cats riled up so there is no going near them. I even bought something called the love glove (no kidding) They will only tolerate it for a few minutes at a time.

Answer:

If you brush their hair regularly maybe more of it will end up caught in the brush than on your couch.
