Is your cat coughing up fur balls?

Why is my cat coughing up fur balls?

It is very important to groom your cat to avoid them from coughing up fur balls. Cats especially long-haired cats tend to cough up fur balls. When the cat is licking its body it tends to lick up all the loose hairs on its body add eventually the cat has licked up enough  hair to form a slimy fur ball to put on your couch before you go and sit just to find out you are sitting on a slimy fur ball.

Will you have quite a variety to give your cat to avoid it from coughing up fur balls.

  1. I have two short-haired cats, and even though they usually never have hairballs — I try to brush them a few times a week. During the season change they shed a lot, Suki sheds A LOT. Giving her hairballs, so I have to brush her extra. Sad thing is, she hates to be brushed. 😛

    • My cat Tommy loves to be brushed often. I think he sees it as another way to get attention. But then Katie can’t stand a brush if she sees I’m going to brush her she darts out of the house.

  2. Hairballs used to be our life here at the zoo with 5 cats, but it actually is very seasonal. And the recommendations you have a right on. We find that the food they eat has a lot to do with it as well. We add tons of water to their food. That makes a big difference. And the shorthairs seems to have more shed than the longs. Good post – Thanks – DogDaz (Cats2)
