Be careful - the powers that be don't like mentions of Etsy .

This entire thread is about an Etsian! Apparently it's not permitted to link to the store, and I will not.

I think it's not permitted to link because there are probably some unscrupulous folk who are going to come here in guise and plug their own stuff.

Haha, you're right! This is what happens to my brain in the middle of the night (night shift worker here).
Things went very pear-shaped in the non-hair forum a while back - I didn't want it happening here too, but I guess if there's no link or promotion it should be ok.

I still appreciate your comment/ caution, we do have to be careful to dissuade self promotion and keep it to honest information sharing. I promise it's not me: I'm in the UK and I don't think customers would appreciate cat fur in their hair gel.

I'm amazed I haven't been accused of working for Komaza Care, I seem to mention them in every third thread!! Mind you there are far more Shea Moisture fans.

Shea Moisture owes me some royalties.

LOL-ing at cat hair in hair gel! If we could link here I'd link this crazy woman on etsy who makes jewelry out of her cat's hairballs. . .

If you take a good sized wad of shed cat hair (not hairballs, that's just gross) and roll it around in your palms, you can make a solid little felted ball that makes a great cat toy. Might as well recycle the stuff, right?

We have four cats; a year ago it was six, but lost two of the seniors. Plus a long-haired dog. There is no such thing as hair-free around here--and did you know that teen boys/young men shed a LOT of leg hair?

I am not LOL-ing at the cat hair in the laptop tho! This is the third time a computer has got sick from an internal fur coat in my household, I can tell because they overheat.

That happened to my work laptop. It just shut itself down one day. I brought it to the IT guy who pulled out the battery, then turned to me and asked, "do you have a cat?"

Oh boy, you ladies are making me happy I'm a dog person. I have enough trouble not destroying my computers myself. Hmmm. . . come to think of it I once had an iguana that knocked over my monitor with his tail.

Yup, I think it was shed cat hair, not a coughed up hairball. Sorry for the misnomer, crazy etsy lady who fashions jewelry out of her cat's shed fur. Although I don't know if she's a curly. . . Anyways, look who's talking. I'm the one who started a hairball thread of all things. :/

Hairballs aren't so bad. Nothing like a half-digested gopher yurked up on the family room floor--now that is NASTY.

Lol, I looked up the cat hair jewelry on Etsy, and she does the little felted balls of fur. Maybe I should make some earrings for myself!

LMAO!!! I spent ages trying to get rid of the 'virus'/ other malware on the first one with the help of some techies on another forum, it would always shut down/ switch off mid virus scan. It was only after the second laptop did much the same thing I had my lightbulb moment and realised they were overheating so took both to be cleaned out. This cat and the last one love to sit squished to me, or next to the nice warm laptop fan in winter, or just stand/ sit on the laptop.

You're welcome! I have a whole bag full of barfing cat stories, most of which involve a hysterical dog--my dog, who is otherwise a lovely girl, thinks cat barf is just to die for, and can hear a retching feline a mile away. Pandemonium then ensues while we try to catch the dog, stop the cat, etc., etc. There is never a dull moment around here.

P.S. We have many, many gophers here, so it's the job of the indoor/outdoor kitties to get as many as they can. And how did this thread get so OT?
