Default Feathers!

With two moulting budgies in their cage in the corner of my living room, until yesterday it looked like I'd emptied a feather pillow in that corner .

I'm not sure that my vacuum cleaner is man enough for the job of getting the feathers up off the carpet, so do any UK forum members have any advice as to the best model vacuum cleaner to go for, please?

As I have two small, fluffy-coated dogs as well it is important that a vacuum cleaner can cope with pet hair and feathers on a regular basis.

Any advice will be welcome

I have a cordless dyson animal vaccum. It is brilliant! Especially to get it out quickly to vacuum those little feathers and husks daily. Downside the battery doesn't last long if you are doing a big clean and not best for people with sore hands as have to constantly press the on button. I had a dyson animal vacum that you plugged in before and couldn't fault that, it last me a long time!

You can always get a shop vac so that you can vacuum the bigger particles and feathers first and then you can finish it up with your regular vacuum.
My vacuum used to be much better, but years of vacuuming seed and stuff got to it.

Isn't it simply amazing the amount of feathers these little tiny birds can generate in a day?? I can't believe how much I vacuum and dust. I also got a hepa filter thingy, which has reduced the dust at least.
Waiting to hear what you buy... We bought an inexpensive small hand held vacuum and it's working fine. But we've had it less than 1 year.
Good luck with the feather reduction project !

I can't believe how many feathers Blue has lost at the moment but the funny thing is to look at him he looks well covered and good. But the proof is on the floor!
