Hairballs: The Trouble With Fur

Published by
min read

Cats are meticulous groomers, often washing themselves several times a day. As they lick, they naturally swallow a bit of their own hair. When enough of this ingested hair collects in a cat's digestive tract, it forms a hairball. Most hairballs are harmlessly coughed up or passed through your cat.
Cats with long hair and those that shed heavily or groom excessively are especially prone to developing hairballs.
