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!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is
fundamental and everything. But just imagine if you
added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
this site could definitely be one of the very best in its field.

Terrific blog!

We loved your Today Show “Furlebrities”!! We had so much fun pawticipating this year!! Thanks for organizing it! Happy National Hairball Awareness Day!!

I have to tell you, your “Today Show” crew was so clever and priceless!!!

“Ellen” seemed to be the flavor of the day….Clooney looked like Sasha Baron Cohen (lol)….MY ALBERT EINSTEIN looked more like Jim Croce……

in my opinion Conan was SUPERB…..it bore a striking resemblance to him with such simplicity!

Of course I love Katy “Purry” because I LOVE Catsparella!!!

I also have a question! Why do you not have a Twitter “share” button on your blog so we can tweet it!

OH I wish I had a furminator. In my bloggie all I do is talk about the bomit traps I leave for mommy. I get brushed but I still hork up hairballs. 50 Green papers is a lot so I don’t have a furminator yet.

Wow, that is a LOT of fur!

Ah, so much talent with the fur creatures. Thanks for co-hosting NHAD again. It was fun.

Oh look at all the furballs!!!! I do like the “Hiss” furball because it was made from my fur, but my favorite besides mine is Conan O’Brien! Such creativity!!!
