Best INEXPENSIVE vacuum for cat hair!!

I know all about the Dyson and Meile's but I can't afford that. I'm looking for something less expensive that is good at picking up all the cat hair. HELP!

I have a Eureka Power Plus. My old vacuum just wasn't picking up any hair and I saw this and figured why not. It was on a Thanksgiving sale for $37 at Walmart. I think it's about $50 regular price. I was so surprised when I used it. And SO grossed out. I had to empty the canister 3 times while vacuuming the downstairs! That was 2 years ago and it still works great! It gets all the hair off the carpet. It's no Dyson, but it works for me!

I had a Eureka too a bagless one and it lasted almost 4 years and did the best job of any vac I've had before my dyson.

I have a Bissell "momentum", with a no bag plastic canister and a special "pet turbo brush" accessory (very efficient on the couch, but very noisy too), and it works really well. We have new carpeting and I used to vaccum every day when we first moved in, I would throw away a whole canister each time! It is great to get cat hair and litter specks out of the carpets, and it cost us about $100 at best buy.

I am very happy with it, and I have two cats (and five at the moment with my fosters). It really does pick up the air even from deep carpets.

A friend of mine tried to go cheap and bought one of the cheapest at Best Buy for about $40, but he did not pick the right one and it died in only a month - granted, his place was covered in cat hair, but still, you would expect a new appliance to last longer than that!

The Bissell we got was among the middle-priced ones. Not cheap, but definitely more affordable than the Dyson

We have a Roomba at my house and you would be surprised how much it picks up and how quiet it is. Just turn it on and let it do its thing. only complaint is the small collection bin, you have to empty it out after about 5 minutes of use. My cats are not afraid of it like they are my upright vaccuum
