Cat Fur in the Fridge?


This little drawing is pretty much what my fridge really looks like. No fancy stainless steel, four doors, with ice dispenser here... nosiree. Just the basic fridge on top and freezer on the bottom. Why? because when we moved here, there was no room in the kitchen for a bigger fridge.

I didn't think it would be much of a problem because there are only two of us in the household... how much stuff did we need? Besides, it looks kind of retro, like Rachael Ray's fridge. Well, as it turns out, it drives me nuts! There is never enough room to put the groceries, and we can never find anything. Too often, when you open the door, something falls out. The darn thing is deeper than it is wide, so things get lost in the back all the time.

My answer is to clean it out and organize it more often. At least that was the plan! When it comes to fridge cleaning and organizing, months seem to fly by. Well, today is the day! I decided I am putting it off no longer. I looked up some organizing tips online, and I am ready... and determined.

I pulled the first drawer out to wash it, and what did I find underneath? Cat fur! (Not much, just a little... but cat fur indeed!) How in the world does cat fur get into the fridge? Have they been sneaking in there for midnight snacks? A more meticulous homemaker would probably freak. (Did anyone see Kate Gosselin having fits about cleaning the fridge in her new house? Jeesh!) Personally, I am more of a cat lover than a clean freak, so it didn't really gross me out. But... how did it get in there?

Judy, Judy, Judy ... here at 29 Black Street we're hard pressed to find "any" spots or areas in the entire house where there "isn't" cat hair. I'm continually pulling a hair from my eyelashes, my nose or my mouth. Sigh. A very small price to pay for living and loving such amazing and continually comforting creatures. Me and Madam Vacuum aren't that close (and never have been).

Hope your apt. yesterday went well. Let us know. Lots of love S & les Gang

Hi Susan, an animal lover after my own heart... I hear ya!
My apt. went well... short and sweet (well, "sweet" to have it over with).

Ah, cats are mysterious creatures indeed. Best not to know how that fur got in there....

I googled this very question just now and found these posts. I think what happens is each time we open the frig door any lurking pieces of fur just land inside. I have four cats so I too find fur EVERYWHERE. Endless dry mopping, vacuuming and using those sticky rollers. I should have stock in those things. But alas, my babies are her to stay ~ fur and all.
