    Something not too expensive (i.e. not a Dyson) but that is good at picking up heair from the carpet as Im moulting! I think a one designed for people with pets will do.

    Any recommendations?

    Morphy richards hoovers are usually quite good :D Up until recently thats what I've always had. I've always been lame at changing filters etc though lol!

    Look on amazon for ideas :D

    I'd recommend a Miele cat & dog (about £199) not cheap i know, but in my honest opinion the cheaper brands just don't cut it.
    I personally have a sebo x4 extra (they about £240 - so quite pricey) and it rocks, i have 2 dogs. Its my parents that have the miele, which is a cylinder. They also have 2 dogs and its really good.

    Though if you wasn't looking to spend that kinda money (lets face it who is :rofl:) then look for one with a turbo brush and either charcoal or hepa filtration would be good too. Good luck

    we have a Henry and its the best - wouldn't go back to anything else now - especially a bagless. We have 2 cats (one v long hair) and it has never got blocked up or anything like that. Was £100 - cheaper in costco, and bags are cheap there too.

    Previously we had a bagless with hepa filtration and it ALWAYS got blocked, with hair. cant recommend Henry enough!:rofl:

    Yeap i'd say a henry too ... ive blown up countless dysons lol so i wouldnt overly rate them for the money they cost.

    But you can pick up a henry for about £80 if you shop around. Plus theyre cute lol

    I've personally never had any luck with Vax, had 2 and they've both broken beyond repair within the 1st year. :hissy: Got a refund after the 2nd one as i didn't trust them.
