Sicy, if you don't regularly brush Saki, I would start - that seems to make the biggest difference for cats with hairballs, much more than just loading them up on things like Cat Lax. Sometimes it can be a sign of intestinal problems, but many times it's just a matter of reducing the volume of hair so they don't take in so much when they are grooming themselves.

Yeah I never really thought about it because he's short hair But I have started trying to brush him every day. He starts out seeming like he likes it, and then he makes some terrible cat noises and tries to attack the brush.. So then I stop lol.

I am crossing my fingers, he did not throw up yesterday at all.. and neither today so far either, I will be so happy if it was just the worms causing his stomach upset, but I am still continuing with the food switch to hairball formula and the brushing.

Worf does the same thing . I bought these gloves that are supposed to pick up hair when I pet her, but they don't work as well . . . and now I can't find the brush .

That's funny! I have found that this type of brush picks up the most hair..



It has the small metal bristles, picks up loads of hair!

That's a good brush for short haired cats, my ultimate favorite for medium and long haired cats (as well as thick coated shorthaired cats) is the Mat Breaker, I never knew about it until I started at my job:



Gets out TONS of hair It's more expensive than a regular brush but totally worth it, esp if your cat isn't crazy about being brushed - you can get out much more in 4-5 swipes than you would with just a regular brush

OK you guys will totally appreciate this, especially given the most recent topic being discussed.

So my Reilly went back to the vet yesterday because he continued to projectile puke (think The Exorcist) after we'd brought him home on Monday. I had been assist feeding him and he'd kept down one meal in 48 hours. Everything else came back up at what appeared to be 100 miles an hour, no joke.

I and his docs continued to be suspicious that he had some kind of obstruction somewhere in the GI tract, although nothing had been apparent on the xrays from Monday. They took more xrays yesterday and noted some subtle differences from the Monday films, but still didn't see anything conclusive. Sent some barium down the hatch at the end of the day yesterday, took more films, still nothing.

Lo and behold, this morning, finally, there appeared to be a suspcicious presence in his mid-bowel area. So in they went for an exploratory, and sure enough, a big hunk of something was in there, surrounded by dying intestinal tissue. The doc ended up removing about four inches of intestine and when it was all over she examined the stuff the blockage was made out of.

You guessed it. An enormous, densely packed hairball.

Needless to say Reilly feels much better now. He should come home from the hospital on Saturday.

Geez Louise.

My Holly does that all the time. I always tell her she's doing a beautiful "first position" (from ballet class when I was little).

OMG Catlady!! Did they have to actually do surgery to get it out? That is soooo scary! I sure hope he feels better soon

Well Saki has only been throwing up once a day or once every two days, and doesnt have a problem keeping meals down or going to the bathroom, or even showing any signs that he feels bad... so I'm not really sure what's going on but I'm working on it


Holly is so beautiful

Yowsa! Poor Reilly. I'm glad that Reilly is ok.

I should keep an eye out for Chloe because her tail is getting really fluffy.
