This should massively cut down on the cat hair floating around. Mr. K(itty) tolerates a collar and leash pretty well, which is a good thing since hair removal really would be best as an outdoor project. I'm hopeful that after a week or so of daily brushing the volume of hair that is left where he lays will be minimal. I certainly hope so anyway, since cat hair is truly unruly stuff. Dog hair is civilized, it just falls off the dog and lays on the floor where it's easily swept or vacuumed. Cat hair on the other hand is truly evil stuff. It's not content to just lay on the floor waiting to be banished into the depths of a vacuum cleaner. Oh, no, it swirls and drifts in every small eddy of air, even gathering together with millions of other homeless hairs and forming drifts behind doors and under furniture. (Who named it fur-niture, anyway, the cats?)
And cat hair isn't content with just taking over the floor either. It is so light and fluffy that it becomes airborne at the slightest provocation, floating up to wrap itself around the leading edge of the ceiling fan blades, clinging to photos and everything else mounted on the walls, and perching carefully on any and all horizontal surfaces at any elevation in your home. And it has some sort of magical ability to cling to everything... 3M's super heavy duty Dual Lock Velcro has nothing on cat hair, it's almost impossible to remove it from any articles made of fabric. It's on your clothes and up your nose, and it stealthily works its way into everything you own.
When my older daughter moved in with me after her divorce, she complained about Mr. K shedding on things. She has 3 cats of her own, but they are all of the orange persuasion, and therefore her entire wardrobe was carefully color coordinated so the cat hair was camouflaged. Mr. K's handsome salt and pepper hairs stood out like a sore thumb. The FURminator will be a huge help in cutting down on the sheer volume of the shedding, and hopefully those black and silver hairs are aren't removed by brushing will blend well with the upholstery in the travel trailer.
