Happy National Hairball Awareness Day!

April 27, 2012

Look at all that gorgeous floof!

It’s the day I know you’ve all been waiting for…National Hairball Awareness Day 2012!

For the 4th year in a row, I’ve worked with FURminator as the spokescat for this important day. Hairballs aren’t anything to mess around with, dudes.

As a long haired cat, I can attest to the amount of hair ingested when one grooms oneself. And, despite the fact lots of cat staff feel like hairballs are a frequent occurrence, many times they don’t get yaked up….so where do you think the hair goes? Right! It makes its way through our little systems, sometimes with not so good effects like (ugh) constipation or (double ugh) worse.

So, if the staff helps out by grooming us regularly, we all win! We love the FURminator so that’s a no-brainer for us. In fact, check out the photo below of the results of a recent session out on the screened in porch. It was a windy day so the fur all got stuck on one side of the porch screen. Hee hee!

To celebrate the day, we gathered with a bunch of other cat bloggers to make celebrities out of the fur resulting from their FURminator grooming session. You’ll love the gallery of photos below!
