Moo's MOOstache for Hairball Awareness Day - Plus a FURminator Giveaway!

A little while ago, I got asked to do something silly. To celebrate and raise awareness for National Hairball Awareness day, I was asked if I would take a picture of my cats with a fur mustache. The crazy folks at FURminator always come up with something silly for this day, so I expected no less.

Sure, I said! Pimp and Moo are always up for a silly photo op , so we're in!

A week or so later, a cardboard mustache on a stick arrived. My instructions were to use the FURminator (we got a few of those, too!) to brush the kitties, then somehow apply their fur to the mustache, hold it up in front of their face (it was attached to the stick) and take a picture. Easy, right?

OK...

You try sticking something in front of your cats face and see if they don't smell it, bite it, swat it, move to get away from it, or all of the above.

Anyway, after much trying to distract the cats from looking at the mustache and catching them at just the right moment, we ended up with this gem.

This is a MOOstache!

Yes, he's wearing a sombrero. We happened to have one (of course we had one!), so I figured it would match the mustache nicely. It's always good to accessorize.

Anywhos, this was so silly (a bunch of other bloggers did it, too!) that PEOPLEpets ran a slideshow of all of our pictures even!

WIN A FURMINATOR!

You want to get extra hair off your cats, too? Cute is here to help! We have one FURminator to give away to one lucky winner! I believe they can only ship to U.S., so sorry to our international Cuteheads. You have to sit this one out. But anyone who wants to win, just leave me a comment saying you want to win (and make sure your email address is tied to your comment account!), and we'll pick on lucky winner on Monday, April 29. OK? OK!

Happy Hairball Awareness Day, everyone!

  16. Well, here is the dilemma I face with my four girls and why I need a furminator: I have about 1200 square feet of BEAUTIFUL black and white tile in my house - smooth ceramic tile. I have two dark cats and two light cats. The dark fur shows up well on the white tiles, and the light/white fur shows up on the black tiles. Two minutes after mopping, it looks like I never cleaned the floors! Uggghhh. The FURMINATOR would surely cut down on the amount of hair blowing around on my nice smooth ceramic tile!

  21. I would love to win another FURMINATOR for my seven, soon to be nine cats! However, I would like the "Magic Wand " version because 5 out of 7 cats tell me that if a grooming tool is going to be used on them, it will have to be in the hands of a groomer who charges good money for the privilege of grooming them! ......yes, the Magic Wand version please!
