Rocking Gifts

I got this, which was a very good read:
And a used one of these:
As I had noted over a year ago, a friend bought it. She hated it because the cord is too short for her needs and the beater bar seems to trip offline very easily. Every time she complained about it, I offered to take it off her hands (I'm all about public service like that). She finaly had enough of it and gave it to me.

I have an apartment and the cord is long enough so that I can easily do a room. I vacuumed two days before the cats and I went away for Xmas. I tried the Dyson when I came home and the amount of cat hair and general crap the vacuum pulled up was astonishing, to say the least.

I'll take apart my old vacuum as much as I can, clean it up and it's off to Goodwill for it.

I love the Dyson. We got one a few months ago (after we got the new carpet in) at the recommendation of the installer. Puts every other vacuum we had to shame.

Interesting that Consumer Reports rates it as mediocre overall, and downright poor at pet hair.

Of course, don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth...

Dennis, it pulled up enough cat hair to completely fill the canister in each area I vacuumed. With bed, furniture and other crap, it's not a lot of square footage.
