Dust Bunny Invasion

After almost a month of blogging, I am happy to finally introduce my two very adorable and fuzzy girls!

Lovin' some nap time :)

Now, I understand that not everyone is a "cat" person, but how could you not love these cutties?! Their names are Wess (aka Wessie Bear), and Taters (aka Tattie Belle), and they are twin sisters that we adopted just over a year ago. I love these nuggets and I am proud to say that I am a fully obsessed cat lady. I have been known to say, "I love them so much I feel like I birthed them!" which in turn totally freaks Joey out and he get embarrassed to be married to all o' this:)

All joking aside, these babies were about the only things that keep me sane through the crazy weeks of the hubs working nights, and a few (ok maybe "few" is a relative term- more like chronic) bouts of homesickness for the Chi.

Come on- baby kittens? Adrobs

With every pet there are some things you have to get used to, but overall these girls have been amazing. They don't scratch, bite, or attack our furniture. But there is one thing that does haunt me in my sleep and seems to be taking over our home...the elusive, and ever morphing DUST BUNNY.

These dust balls seem to multiply like lemmings and I can't seem to get a handle on it. Hidden in every corner and under every piece of furniture, the second I sweep them up more appear. I think the time has come to start saving up for my future best friend- Miss Roomba.

At $300+, this sucker not a buy on a whim kind of item. I am trying to find an alternative before I make that kind of investment, but so far the idea of breaking out the vacuum more than once a week is really not appealing.

This may be a Craigslist find- so I will be doing a little stalking for the next few weeks. Hopefully, I'll get lucky:)

Does anyone have a Roomba already? Do you like it, or is it something that you use once and then regret purchasing? Also, does it freak your pets out? My kitties are scared out of their whits by the vacuum, so I am afraid this would send them over the edge if it was moving around on its own.

Best Blogger Tips Pin It


  1. We don't have a Roomba, but I do have 2 suggestions. We have a husky and his fur ends up everywhere!

    We live by our Swiffer Sweeper for our hard floors. It doesn't work well on carpet but does a great job on wood, tile, etc. Plus you can buy moistened wipes to put on the end so it "mops" while vacuuming up the fur.

    Also, we fell in love with a dust-buster. It's green and called The Shark. It sucks up fur dustbunnies incredibly quickly. Good luck!

    1. I think a dust buster is on the top of my list to get this week- just need to get a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon in mail!

  2. We found a Roomba at a garage sale for $20. It is an older model but I love it so much. You still have to do some supervising, but it is just fun and does a great job.

    1. Ah- there is hope! With garage sale season in full bloom I will for sure have my eye out for one :)
