You all know I love my cats but having three cats also means a lot of cat fur and dander around the house. I swear they shed enough to make a new cat every week! Like I said though, I love my cats and that means I just have to find other solutions to help me with the mess that comes with them. Really, it is just like kids – they make messes too but we still love them no matter what.
This is Peaches. She just had to jump on top of the box to sit – she does this with any box she can find.
How can you not love Lottie? As you can see she is quite the furball but oh so loving and sweet!
Our newest adopted cat (we always adopt from shelters) is Ozzie. He is the only boy, the youngest, and the craziest!
So when the big green Swiffer box showed up at my house it made me very happy. (Disclosure – I received product and compensation from Clever Girls on behalf of Swiffer) Heck, it made the cats happy too because they love a good box. After taking cute pics of the cats inside the Swiffer box, Hubby and I got to work trying out the actual products to see what the #SwifferEffect would be.
I love that I can use both wet and dry Swiffer cloths on the same Swiffer stick – it saves a little room that way. We have hard floors throughout most of the house and so using the dry Swiffer cloths is helping us keep the floors less furry. If you have pets, especially cats, you know that sometimes they like to leave extra “presents” on the floor too (furballs, coughs, etc.) and those require a bit more work. This is where the wet Swiffer cloths with the scrubby edge are making us happy. They really do a good job on those special gifts from Peaches, Lottie (mostly her), and Ozzie. The fur flies around here too and especially likes to gather on the blades of our ceiling fan. The Swiffer duster was perfect for wiping off the blades (that I had just done 3 days ago).

The Swiffer Effect for our family in our home is an easier way to keep up with the fur and dander and gifts from the cats for all of us and hopefully not have to apologize for all the floating fur when we have guests.
My extended family are all dog people. Swiffer asked me to surprise another pet person with a big green Swiffer box too so I took one to my cousin’s house. She has a beautiful Chow named Bamboo and they are getting a new puppy in a couple of weeks too. I knocked on the door with the big green Swiffer box…
Bamboo is getting a bit old but is still so lovable and sweet.
Colby had to check out how the Swiffer was working for himself. He loves using it and is helping Mom and Dad keep up with the dog fur in their house.
Thanks again to Swiffer and Clever Girls Collective for sharing a Swiffer green box with me and providing me with another one to share with my family! There is no way any of us can imagine our lives without our wonderful pets. Now we have more time to play with our cats and dogs and less hassle cleaning up their fur!
What kind of pets do you have? Are fur and pet dander a problem for you? Have you tried a Swiffer?
