We may have to trim that fluffy Biscuit butt. He continues to cough up the largest hairballs I've seen. His hair is real fine and silky...it's long but so silky I can't imagine it ever matting. Brushing him with a slicker yields little hair, yet he somehow is managing to get large amounts of it down his gullet.

Spoke with the vet about it yesterday and he thinks a trimming might be in order. We've been giving him hairball remedy but I'm worried he's going to get another impacted hairball.

Any suggestions are welcome. I have not found a brush that seems to work on this guy.

Get a Furminator. (check the pet sections of Home Goods or TJ Maxx, sometimes you can find them there for half the price of the pet stores).

Using wet wipes will clear out loose hair, but cat food high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids really help cut down on the shedding because they get a stronger coat. It won't stop shedding, but it will cut down on it a bit. Tuna and Salmon are probably the highest in both acids, but you can find supplements at PetSmart you can pour on other food.

If his fur is so thin a regular cat brush won't pick up the hair, get a cheap people hairbrush with stiff bristles. This is going to sound terrible, but check out the "ethnic" section of the hair aisle at your local pharmacy - many brushes specialized for particular races do a bang up job on a cat.

That's what we use for Suzy. She has a very thick very fine undercoat.

Although the best thing to get the hair is a bath. She isn't fond of baths but the last bath she got saved us about four good size tumblefurs from the livingroom.

Greetings to all.. was waiting for Furrsday.. mixed news.. little " fighter" didn't make it.. seems that both of the kittens had neurological issues.. delayed birth could be the cause.. and the first ( and last ! ) litter.. oxygen deprevation was mentioned.. the birth took too long.. I presume that's why #3 & 4 were perfectly formed but never breathed.. # 1 had become a casualty a while previously... my foster friend said Fighter passed sometime Saturday night.. had been walking in circles.... Mommacat, whom I have tentatively named 'Stretch'.. she does it so well... is now 'fixed', still refuses to even consider cat type food.. even tried the 'almost starvation' routine.. yeah.. I gave in before she did.... still have several plans to try... she is 'clean.. so I am going to try a gradual introduction to the crew.. she knows their smell, but they don't know hers.. and they won't get near the TV room where the temp cage is, if she is in the cage.. normally they are all over that room.... I have status quo cats.. they don't like change, unless it involves more food in their bowls... or an empty box..
Lawn is growing quickly.. fair amount of rain and then lots of Sun... need to come home early tomorrow afternoon.. I mow a serpentine path from the front sidewalk through front and side yards, to the side sidewalk.. complete with loops.. a friend down in the next block has two young 'uns.. 3-4... they go to a day care two doors away.. and they will definitely give diabeetus problems... on the way home, the kids will see the 'trail' and follow it, running around the loops multiple times.. their Dad loves it.. asked me Tuesday if I would do a new one.. hope I am home to see it.... think I started something.....
Sacktime.. best wishes for our Family.. may those who are not well get better quickly.... BBT

Can you vacuum him? I know that most horses love to be vacuumed with the brush attachment. I have seen some (rare) kitties that like it too. Maybe you can get those "sticky" gloves and pet him more, I would help with that if I could.
Good luck with the hairy Biscuit problem.

Mrs. BBBB is awake as of Wednesday. She's not very coherent or aware of things just yet, but she is responding to stimuli and can stay awake for five minutes or so at a time. Might be this weekend that she's able to hold a conversation and remember things when she wakes up from her many naps, but we will see. And as it's Caturday, coming home from the hospital last night, there was a black cat on my porch crying away. He didn't run away from me and appears to be a stray, but his coat and overall looks make me wonder if he's lost. Going to take him to the SPCA and see if he's chipped today. I didn't feel anything there, but I might have missed it. If he's not, then I have a choice of what to do. Let him stay in the house last night, and he seemed to get along with Peirogi, but Waffles just glared at him and hissed a few times, then glared at me the rest of the night. The ferrets seemed to scare him, so there weren't any problems there. No damage to the house this morning when I woke up either, so probably like a fool, he'll end up staying with us if he is a stray. So add a cat and a ferret this week to our menagerie. As for names, I'm thinking since he's all black with just a tiny spot of white on his chest that he may be a Coffee, but also thinking either Falafel or Shawarma. I'll try and post a pic later today when I can get a decent computer that isn't being a pain in the butt. Now to see what happens when I get home this afternoon and how decent the house looks, or whether or not he went crazy and tore things up.

I'm going to miss this early dose of Caturday when my sponsorship runs out.

Had a kitty for 25 years
Mild allergy
Now can't spend more than 30 minutes at the local shelter without a bad allergic reaction

No more kitties for me

Which makes me sad

But Caturday makes me happy

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy you do know that this Thursday was Celebrated Black Cat day right? Really! You could call the mitteh "Joe"..as in " Having a good cuppa Joe in the morning"....

the Ice Queen aww! I hope you feel better soon!

Older Guy I am so sorry to hear of you loss. At least the kittens knew the touch of a kind hand during their short lives. You did a fine job with them. You ust take some pics of your grassy maze! Hugs.

Been following Mrs. BBBB's saga so I have been glad of the good results. Maybe the cats will help her along a bit quicker.

But c'mon, you gotta name the new cat Spot. Why be creative when you can be obvious?

Have you tried taking Claritin or zyrtec? I suspect that your reaction was frm having so many furballs in one place.

i have had really good luck with this Link I use one on my hair and tried it on the cats for fun. Couldn't believe how much extra hair it got from Mandu

Read all rest of pg 1, now blood sugar has riz enough to let me make sense of it. Sand kittens last eve should've rizzed it just by looking at them; didna work. Needed fruit jc.
Didn't notice either that still pic was from Cinti Zoo. They're our fave residents over there (20-30 min drive from The Hoose depending on traffic). Tho extremely cute & moderately furry, they wouldn't make good house cats; instinctively know how to use those claws & fangs! Too bad that didn't save them in Israel back when border disputes were going on. But now that may be fixable, we hope.
spinach gunk, tnx for all the .gifs. Some I hadn't seen before. Snatch!

A predle caption-fill; this may be the very most crammed-full.
Now watch this go to pg 3 sted of pg 2...

No, I have not for cat allergy. From what I understand, those meds are not good for pet allergies, but I could be wrong.

But even if they are, I do not like the idea of living on that kind of med 24x7. The blood pressure meds and occasional asthma meds I take are bad enough. Something that messes with the immune system for something that is optional does not seem like a good trade.

I will have to live with just Caturday and the occasional visit with friends cats until medical science finds a way to permanently reset my immune system. I keep close track on that research.
