Bugs’s propensity to hurl his meals every two weeks or so, give or take, seems clearly connected to, if not actually caused by, hairballs. I’ve tried to alleviate this problem with a dried-coconut product that’s supposed to be of some use in moving things along.
I also brush him every day.
In this shedding season, though, look what we get. It must be exhausting, producing all that fluff.
By the way, that’d be each and every day. Keep in mind that Bugs is a short-haired cat. I get nothing like this from long-haired Barney. I’m having trouble keeping up.
Change of position, to commence fixing the remaining furs. Note the growing hairball in the foreground. It was this size a month ago:
I’ll have to call Kelly, of the Ozark Ball Museum, and tell him we’re making progress on a second installment.
The ball is growing apace.
Very impressive ball of fur.
That’s a lot of fur! Surprisingly, some short-haired kitties just have really dense coats.
My late, 20 year old long haired cat never threw up a hairball. She would just vomit, I guess when the thing irritated her stomach. So yes, all the hot months, it was groom, groom, groom. And all that hair is pure protein- If it could be recycled, maybe it could solve some hunger problems in the world.
I adore that hairball 🙂
Of course Bug would produce epic furballs… 🙂
