Hey, everybuddy!  It’s me…Zoey.  Happy National Hairball Awareness Day!

Y’know what this is?  Yep, it’s the fur that came off of me after about 5 minutes of FURminating.  One of the best ways to prevent hairballs is regular grooming with a FURminator deShedding tool. ‘Specially us long-haired kitties that have more problems with hairballs.  All this fur could’ve ended up inside me causing problems like yucky hairballs. That’s why it’s important for your humans to regularly brush you, and use a tool like the FURminator deShedding tool.

And now…I get to announce the winner of our photo captioning contest sponsored by FURminator!


We knew our friends were clever, and you all impressed us with the funny and cute captions you came up with for the photo.  But, sadly, there can only be one winner.

And the winning caption is…

Doncha just hate it when they seat you
with the fans wearing the other team’s colors?
I’m outta here!

Congratulations to Cathy Keisha for coming up with that funny caption!  Good one, CK! We’ll be contacting you to let you know how to get your prize package of FURminator products.

Thanks to everybuddy who participated…and thanks to the FURmintor peoples for sponsoring this contest.  It was a lot of fun!


Y’know?  I think I could use a little more FURminating!

  3. diego-san’s favorite part of the day is when he gets furminated right before bedtime…

  4. Mumsy always says she’s got enough of our fur to make another cat! Silly Mumsy. We’ve seen Animal Planet…that’s not gonna work.
    Happy Friday, you guys!
    Hugs 🙂

  5. We love our Furminator, but the kitties…not so much! Ha!


  6. We don’t have a Furminator, but we loved being brushed and combed anyway, and yep, there’s enough of our furs to make a slew of mini-mes!

    Concats to Cathy Keisha on winning the caption contest!

  7. Holy carp! That could have ended up being a killer hairball! Concats to Cathy Keisha for winning! We just couldn’t come up with a caption.

  8. Wow, Zoey, look at all that fur!

    Concats to Cathy Keisha!! 🙂

  9. Zoey is that a days floof or a few days of floof? Lucy has a zoom groom as she has shortish furs but although Hannah has a wirey brush she still gets the odd furball so Mum will look out for a furminator.
    Have a wonderful weekend with no furballs!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  16. Whoa!! Thank you! Believe me, the peeps don’t like it when they’re stuck sitting next to fans of the opposing team at the Big Ball Yard in da Bronx. TW thought this entire asthma thing started while I was grooming myself and I might have gotten some fur caught in my throat.

    That’s some fur ball. I’m thinking of donating mine to an organization that cleans up oil spills and such.

  17. Concatulations, CK!!! We hope that we will get a FURminator soon! That is one impressive mound of fur that came off of you, Zoey.
