Those annoying hairballs

If you own a cat, you know that hairballs is a fact of life. Every time your cat grooms himself, he is swallowing lots of hair. I’m sure that you’ve found these disgusting things on your floor from time to time. Hair itself is not digestible, so your cats stomach reacts by emitting digestive juices which cause him to expel the hairball.  The good news is that there are many remedies for this that are simple and inexpensive.

1. Get a brush and brush your cats fur regularly. They usually love it and it removes loose hair.

2.Some cat food manufacturers sell food that include a lubricant and fiber to help your cat in passing any offensive hairballs. You can also find cat treats that are specifically for treating hairballs.

3. Paste like hairball remedies are available at your grocery store or vet.

4. You may want to try putting a little butter in your cats food dish. This will help keep your cats plumbing clean.

 

Remember, your pets count!
