A:

We have the A4, My grandson has the A6, Our A4 picks up all the hair on our carpet, I have a long hair cat and a long hair dog (Himalyian and Husky---both big shedders) We haven't had a problem at all with it not picking up the hair. I highly recommend it.

A:

It depends on what you consider to be affordable. If the Eufy RoboVac 11 is in your price range, it is definitely worth checking out. It's compact, runs quietly, and features a powerful battery that will run up to 1.5 hours. This vacuum has a triple layer filter which is good for filtering dust and allergens as well. Assuming you have thin carpet (no shag or high pile) then this would work perfectly for you. The one downside is that it has no virtual wall capability, meaning that it can't be restricted from going into certain areas (e.g. a baby's room) although it can detect stairs and other drops so it won't break.

The best option for pet hair. I have 3 cats.
Related: bObsweep PetHair, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Chris 117 days ago
A:

I would say two great choices to combat pet hair would be either the bObsweep PetHair, or the Irobot Roomba 960. They both have HEPA filters and large bins to hold a lot of pet hair and dirt (so they won't have to be empties as frequently). 

The bObsweep PetHair would be the cheaper choice, but do not let that discourage you from trying it out. It was designed to combat pet hair. It however may pose an issue if you have a two floor house because it has no stair detection (meaning that it will drop if there is no barrier at the top of the stairs). Its bin is also slightly larger than the 960’s (1000 mL vs. the 960’s 900 mL). It’s not only designed to handle pet hair, but also paw prints, as it is a combination of a vacuum and a mop.

The Irobot Roomba 960 on the other hand is able to handle fringes and cables quite well with its tangle free extractors, and has stair detection, making it an optimal choice if you have a multi story house. It also gives you the ability to control where it can or cannot go with the virtual wall (these may cost extra, however).
