When you share your life with cats, cat hair is a fact of life – and one that most of us embrace proudly. But it also means that most of us are constantly on the lookout for products that help us combat cat hair, whether it’s on clothes, bedding or furniture.

I was intrigued when a Conscious Cat reader told me about the Chom Chom Roller, and asked the company to send me one to review.

The ChomChom Roller is an internationally patented device that is said to pick up deeply embedded hair and fragments in sofas, carpets, car seats, beds, curtains and more. According to the manufacturer, moving the ChomChom Roller back and forth creates an electrostatic charge that attracts the hairs to the roller.


I put the roller to the test on the two spots on my sofa where Ruby likes to sleep. There’s quite a bit of cat hair there, and I’m not always too terribly diligent about removing it. The roller worked great! A few passes over the area, and the cat hair was gone.

I also used the roller on carpet, along the baseboards were cat hair tends to collect, and the vacuum cleaner doesn’t reach it unless you use one of the attachments. I was amazed how much hair the roller picked up, even though it was a bit awkward to move it along the baseboards.

The hair is collected in a little compartment inside the roller. To empty it, you simply flip open the lid and dump the collected hair in the trash.

It works great, and what I really like about this roller is that you don’t need to purchase refills, like you do with the typical pet hair rollers. There’s no need for batteries or a power source. I think it’s great for cleaning up furniture: it’s quick, it’s quiet, and it actually takes less time than it would to get out the vacuum cleaner and hook up a furniture attachment.

I give this roller two thumbs up, and I think if Allegra and Ruby cared about removing cat hair (which I’m pretty sure they don’t…), they would give it four paws up – because unlike the evil vacuum monster, this little gadget makes no noise whatsoever!

  1. I don’t care fore the Chom Chom at all. In fact I would like to send it back for a full refund.

  2. I own one of the top rated small cleaning businesses in my city, and upon using a client’s Chomchom, I was instantly sold!!! I told another client about it, and she ordered 2…one for her and one as a gift for me!!! OMG!!! If anyone has anything but awesome things to say about the chomchom, they’re crazy!!!

  3. This product looks really fantastic. I for one don’t care much about whether I have cat or dog hair on me more then 99% of the time. Grin! Something like this would be great to have for when I go to hotels or to my families homes who do not have pets. Sad fact that is. Tom and I will have to look into this item. This article is staying in my favorites for sure.

  4. That looks great!! Most lint rollers are highly ineffective and just a waste of money. I’m pretty sure my cats don’t care about the hair they leave all over the place, either … but there are times when I do. Not ALL of the time, but sometimes. MOL.

  5. Great review! I will have to look into this product. I appreciate your telling us all about it.

  6. Thanks so much for this review, Ingrid. As you say living with five cats, cat hair is a fact of life, I can pretty much guarantee there’s cat hair on my clothes whenever I leave for work whether or not I’ve actually held a kitty that morning which I almost always have. The people at work are used to it by now, those of them who can see it anyway . When I think about it which I freely admit isn’t very often I’ll use one of the Mr. Sticky rollers on me to get the majority off, those are another really good product by the way if you haven’t seen them. One thing I might mention to our fellow cat lovers out there, if this product generates and uses electrostatic charge, I’d probably avoid using it around sensitive electronics. We don’t have any carpets in the house but I think we may still check this thing out for furniture and so on.

    • It didn’t generate electrostatic charges when I used it, Tom, but that’s good point. It would probably depend on the type of surface you use it on?

  7. I have used this roller for about 6 months and just love it. One of the few products that perform as claimed. No cat hair escapes it, and so easy to clean. Great product.

  8. We will have to check this out. Sometimes I think cat hair it taking over my house. I suppose 4 cats will do that. Especially when they dislike being brushed. Thanks for the info!

  9. It looks like a great product! My one kitty, Cisco, is the one who leaves the most hair. His hair is white so it really stands out. I will have to try this product, mainly on my black pants lol
