I have a maine coon also, and a short hair black and white tuxedo cat. The MC is a shedder! I found that the rubber glove thing works very well and I also have one of those pet brushes that has brush bristles on one side and wire bristles on the other. Both sides work well.
I have a bissell pet hair hand held corded vacc and I can't quite get the hang of using the rubber nubbed attachment. Most of Teddy's long hair gets hung up on the attachment and has to be hand picked to release it. I find the hard plastic attachment works better. I wish I had been able to find the corded handheld with the long attachment locally.
Anyone know if I can buy just the attachment for the vacc I have?
