hairballs over the past 72 hours

the closet
the stairs
the foot of the bed
the side of the bed
the other side of the bed
the stairs again
and again
the kitchen floor
right where MeJane stepped on her way to the bathroom in the middle of the night

She's a lovely cat, really. Any takers?

If its that bad you should try doing something about those hairballs. Just like bulimia it could screw your cat up. You could try hairball medication (my cat hates it, so I gave up but it might work better for yours). Hairball food (Didnt work for my cat either, but hey it has to for someone). Daily brushings (this one works for me), or if you want to go to the end try shaving every couple months. Im sure that will work.

lizzie,

thanks. the thing that worked was a visit to the emergency animal hospital. seems my normal non-pukey cat ate something he shouldn't have. a little pepcid put an end to the hair-ballery. (i also exaggerated -- "hairball" here sometimes mean "puddle of frothy vomit" but I didn't really want to title the list with that...)

Lizzie said...

Sorry, im totally wierd. I worry about a total strangers cat. Thank you for telling me that shes ok. =)

My cat had exactly the same problem. And the vet said Pepcid. Who knew?

But it's such a joy to step into wet puddles of hairball/frothy puke in the middle of the night. No?

The only thing better than stepping into frothy hairballs in the middle of the night is having the one you love step in them and get her favorite slippers covered in goo.

Lizzie said...

Haha. You know your married when you would rather your 'other' step in it. In my house whoever finds it cleans it up. Go squishies!

Girl With An Alibi said...

Slippers? Damn. She's lucky. I was barefoot!!

el_gallo said...

Oh, sorry, I desribed that wrong. She stepped into the hairball, then stepped into the slippers before the hairball had had a chance to soak through her socks...
