Good vacuum cleaners for people with multiple pets?
I have 5 cats, and I don't like to vacuum all that much. I find that regular vacuum cleaners don't really handle pet hair that well - they don't pick it up that well, and their filters aren't really made to handle lots of pet hair, resulting in needing professional cleaning more often than they should.
Woot has a special today on a refurbished Dyson made especially for households with pets. It's $289, but it's also heavy, around 20 lbs. The feedback on it is good, but I am hesitating mainly because it's so heavy. Before I invest so much, I thought I would come here and find out what other pet owners recommend.
Also, I have wood and cork floors, no carpet. I sweep, but I need to vacuum too - it's just more effective.
