The Case of the Furry Sofa

Based on a true story. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.

"Evening, miss. You need a private eye because you've got your self in a furry situation? Well, I'm certainly one for the job. Let me see those perpetrators...

Perp 1: The Clown

Perp 2: The Diva

"Those two look like trouble. They are, aren't they? And their hangout is the new sofa? Oh, that's a messy problem.

"So how are we going to get you out of this? Hmmm? The vacuum? That'd work, yes yes yes.... What? It leaves bits of fur embedded in the cushions? Oh, not good, not good...

"I've got it! Sticky rollers! They remove lint and you can throw the mess away. You can even get one of those large ones...

"Oh, you've tried that? It takes 3 sheets to get the whole sofa clean? Whoa, that's a lot of waste...and expensive!

"Well, how about this--the pet hair magnet? I know, I know...As seen on TV doesn't mean it'll work. But why don't you give it a try?"

The next day

"Back already? Worked that well, did it? Yes, it's amazing. It got fur out of places you didn't even know there was fur? Yup, that's what I thought. Best $10 you ever spent, isn't it? No need to thank me, ma'am, just doing my job..."


  1. Loved your detective story! I've been reading your blog since you posted about your lovely bag in the Janome group. With 2 cats myself and plenty of stray fur, I found your post entertaining and practical--where did you get the pet magnet?
    Great blog!!

  2. Thanks Mary! :)

    I was completely surprised with just how well that thing worked. Totally worth $10! I found it at petsmart, but in the dog grooming section not the cat section. I think most pet stores should have it and you could probably order it online from petsmart or even amazon.

    Good luck with your own furry situation! :)


  3. Great story! You have a real knack!

    Come on over to my blog where the coffee's perking and the muffins are still warm!
