Poor Hazel has been suffering from a hairball that wouldn’t come up…or go down. She’d hack her little heart out, but nothing came. This went on for a week and I started getting concerned. *insert neurotic pet owner here with vet bill looming* She was able to eat and poop so I knew there was no blockage but it had to be uncomfortable.
Hazel suffers from recurring diarrhea so I don’t want to give her anything that would encourage that. Many hairballs remedies have some sort of laxative in them. I stopped one of her poop meds and that’s all it took. She gifted me with a ginormous hairball. She didn’t deposit it on the new carpet but on the old one. What a cat. We are all relieved and she is very happy (and there weren’t any vet bills!).
In complete serendipity, Mollie tossed a hairball too. On a carpet but not the new one. I stepped in it. Yuk!
Hazel and Mollie are all better and wish you a great weekend with no hairballs.
