I bought one of these years ago now. It has been a invauble help to me as I am disabled & have 3 house cats. It does a better job than my vacuum cleaner (That is too heavy for me to use now) After many years of faithful use, alas mine has started to split :( All others similar are not as good as this one, they break far too easily. I like this one because it is more sturdy, and can stand up in its cleverly designed head. Please , please get this item back in stock?
