My Fluffy Furball!

Among my three cats, the one bushiest is Benji! Everywhere he goes, he leaves behind a trail of fur, which eventually collects and turns into huge dust bunnies! Living with 3 fluffy cats means that I need to vacuum our condo at least twice a week to maintain a fur-free environment and believe me, that is no fun chore!

The vacuum that we own right now was a wedding present and has been a trusty dust buster for almost 5 years. I recently noticed that it doesn’t seem to pick up as much dust and fur as it used to so we're contemplating on getting a new one. Thanks to a little birdy that told me about Dyson, I was able to browse through a wide range of upright, cylinder and handheld vacuum cleaners online. Dyson is actually a pretty impressive site. It was a breeze for me to navigate my way around here and using its Help Me Choose feature, I quickly found the right vacuum for me - the DC16 Issey Miyake exclusive!


The name caught my immediate attention, as Issey Miyake happens to be one of my favourite perfumes. Besides I love the idea of having a pink vacuum cleaner! What's more, it uses a powerful motorised brush bar which is very effective to collect and pick up pet hair and that's exactly what I need!

As adorable as they appear, my cats show absolutely no mercy to my furniture when it comes to shedding their fur. If I were to collect them all, I’d get a huge ball of fur, enough to knit a fluffy sweater! So I think I'll continue checking out this site and see what other accessories come with this innovative handheld vacuum cleaner. In the meantime, I'll leave you with some pictures of Benji’s favourite catnap spots. Which
spot does he look most comfy to you? ;)

Curled up at the front door, waiting for B to come home from work.


On my desk after a nap.


Enjoying the rumble tumble of the clothes dryer!

THE NAFASG TEAM November 25, 2007 12:35 PM

Aww...we just love seeing Benji curling up in front of the door. So cute!!! And soooo bushy! Hehe.

Oh we did a review on Dyson too. And we saw that model! It looks cool, and the name too. The girls at NAFA are big fat Issey Miyake lovers ok??? =)=)=)

I had a big orange Tabby cat when I was a kid and fire ants stung his mouth and he couldn't clean himself.

My parents had me and my sister clean him. I refused to do his underside and so did my sister. That's when I developed a taste for that yummy fur ball grease.

I was coughing up fur balls until I was in my late teens! Regardless, that was one clean cat...he he he:)

Mr.Lionking is looking really majestic on your desk! Probably thinking about a tasty gazelle or something!!!!

Mariuca November 25, 2007 4:35 PM

He he, it's kinda sleek to me GK, and I like la the colour! ;) Thanks for being my first commenter! :):)

Mariuca November 25, 2007 4:35 PM

Emila! I agree...pink vacuum would be ultra cool or perhaps lime green! Cute kan Baba? ;)

Mariuca November 25, 2007 4:36 PM

Hey Kim Fei! Yeah, he was on top of the dryer for hours, refused to budge...so cute! :):):)

Mariuca November 25, 2007 4:38 PM

Nick! Benji has so many different sleeping positions and they're all so cute and funny sometimes. He's also the friendliest among the three. And he's the only one that greets all my visitors by rolling on their feet, cuteness! :):):)

Nessa November 25, 2007 6:47 PM

Benji's favourite spot has to be on the clothes dryer, the way he positioned his arms and legs is a dead giveaway! :D

Random Magus November 25, 2007 9:25 PM

Your cats are beyond gorgeous

J@n!ce November 25, 2007 10:16 PM

Mariuca November 26, 2007 1:56 AM

Crystal! He loves disturbing me while I'm at my desk. He'll jump up and purposely plop himself down right in front of my screen so I can't type LOL!! :):):)

Mariuca November 26, 2007 1:58 AM

NAFA! Yeah la, when I saw him curling up like a furball there, I quickly took his pic cause he looks so cute like that with his legs and fat paws up in the air!

So happy to know that the ladies of NAFA like Issey too...I finished my bottle ages ago...time to replenish LOL! :):):)

Mariuca November 26, 2007 2:00 AM

Hi Bobby, he he he...no la..not thinking of a gazelle. Benji might be a "lion" but he's a harmless one! ;)

Mariuca November 26, 2007 2:26 AM

Hey Nessa, you are right! Whenever he's MIA, that's the first spot I'll look and he'll be happily hanging out there! Love my Benji la LOL!! :):):)
