NATIONAL HAIRBALL AWARENESS DAY – Really? Who thinks this stuff up? If you have a cat, you are always aware of hairballs. They are weird lumps that are usually found on your favourite carpet as opposed to easily cleaned smooth flooring.
Cats are prolific groomers and therefore ingest a silly amount of fur. Brushing your feline will go a long way in helping them avoid the undignified hacking that precedes the hairball ruining your poorly placed slacks.
As my veterinarian friend says, hairballs require constant vigilance as there is nothing like stepping on a fresh one in bare feet.
