The Dyson V8 is a stick vacuum cleaner that is excellent if you are cleaning up cat hair (and many other things for that matter). It is cordless and it has an autonomy of 40 minutes when used without the motorized special tools. It comes with a stand, where it can be hung and kept (see our thorough review video to see what I mean).
It has a special tool for carpets that goes deeply in to capture dirt and particles from deep down. With this tool, the Dyson V8 has an autonomy of 8 minutes of fade-free power (in MAX Mode). It also has a tool for soft cleaning, which comes with an autonomy of 30 minutes of fade-free power.
It is light-weight to make it useful for cleaning the full range of areas you need, including those located up. Its motor makes it reach deep to pick up ground in dirt and fine dust, as well as animal fur. In fact, it is extremely efficient for cleaning up cat hair.
