I hesitated on buying this vacuum as it was so much cheaper than the high end vacs. In this case, cost does not equate to quality. With four cats in the house, you know we have a lot of fur to clean up. I tried it on the cat tower and the tool supplied sucked up every last hair! I am sold on Bissell products. I recently purchased the pet hair steamer machine and it too is fantastic! You can't beat the price on Overstock.
