CSI: Vacuum

I was vacuuming this afternoon and heard a metallic "clunk" as I ran it near my dresser. My first thought was that one of the cats (probably George) had managed to fish out an earring or something and knocked it on the floor.

So I cut the bag open. (To give you a sense of scale, that bag is about 15" long.)

There was enough cat hair in there to knit up a few kittens, all coated with dust from the litter box. It was a freaking mess.

Oh, the metallic clunk? It came from a small jinglebell, which is one of George's favorite toys. He has others and I can always get more from a crafts shop.

Oh my. You might have just started a whole new meme. I would bet between the two of us, we could produce a litter of very large cats with all the effluvium and loose cat fur.

It is amazing how much hair there is. I don't vacuum as much as I should, as I use a carpet-sweeper between vacuuming. I picks up a lot of the stuff and it doesn't scare the critters.
