National Hairball Day
Hairball Awareness Day is the last Friday in April
The next Hairball Day will fall on 24 April, 2015. Time to get prepared now!
Calling all furry cats, this is an important day for you. Furry dogs, you're affected as well.
This is NOT a contest for hairball production, nor a celebration of the beauty of regurgitated fur, but a day to raise awareness about hairballs.
Confusion about the date of Hairball Day
Unfortunately, many people have the date for Hairball Day wrong!
I've seen all sorts of dates bandied around but this is most likely because it hasn't been realised that Hairball Day is the last Friday of April .In 2015 the last Friday will be the 24th
There's no confusion about hairballs though - every cat owner has at one time stepped into a hairball. Usually this occurs in the middle of the night when people don't recognise just what that sticky, slimey pile of something actually is. Relax, it's only a hairball.
Long Haired Cat - Hairballs are a threat to her
We can all get Hairballs
Everyone knows cats get hairballs from grooming. Keeping ourselves clean can cause the problem of ingesting a great deal of fur - especially if you're a furry cat.
Besides being gross for cat owners who have to clean them up, hairballs can cause some serious discomfort for us as well! Hairballs are not necessary. Ingesting too much hair can cause problems for all cats
Keep this to yourself, please, I've had troubles with constipation from swallowing too much hair and I'm a short haired cat!

Hairballs can become Hazardous
The best defense against hairballs is not to get them in the first place.
Every Home needs a FURminator
I NEVER recommend shaving. The FURminator is a quick answer to getting rid of fur that's already worked its way loose.
Get your person to groom you. Older cats like myself especially need regular brushings, as our digestive systems slow down with age
Get your person to feed you a specially formulated anti-hairball care food.
Get your person to give you a little OIL Half a teaspoon of olive oil or butter to our food bowl. Works wonders!.
