It’s National Hairball Awareness Day!
Hairballs are not good for us kitties. That’s why we’re once again teaming up with Romeo the Cat and the FURminator people to celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day and share information on how to prevent getting hairballs.
Here’s five tips from the FURminator people on how to prevent hairballs. I know I’ve told you these before, but they’re worth repeating.
1. Regular Grooming: Ask your human to groom you regularly by using a grooming tool like the FURminator deLuxe deShedding Tool, which reduces shedding by nearly 90%.
2. Home Remedies: Ask for a little canned pumpkin mixed in with your stinky goodness once or twice a week. The fiber in the pumpkin can help move any hair clogs through your system.
3. Stay Hydrated: Make sure you drink lots of water. Tell your human to put several water bowls throughout the house. Water helps flush out the hair before it has time to clump in your stomach.
4. A New Menu: There are several specially formulated cat foods that aid in the fight against hairballs. You might want to ask your human to get you some. But of course, make sure your human asks your v-e-t before changing your diet drastically.
5. Ask Your Vet: If you have chronic hairball problems, have your human ask your v-e-t to recommend a laxative supplement to help prevent ingested hairs from forming hairballs. The lady with the yellow hair gives me some yummy tasting stuff in a tube a couple of times a week so I don’t get clogged up with hairballs.
I hope these tips help you in your fight against hairballs!
