    ok all you cat lovers out there.

    I have the most skittish cat in the world. he's trying to cough it up, but it
    just doesn't come. Suggestions please!! A visit to the vet will make him hide
    under the bed for over 2 weeks. lol

    well, we have special cat food here with anti hairball function. But don´t know if it helps, never had that problem.

    It helps them to eat gras, you could buy also special cat gras,

    I would not worry to much, the hairball will go sooner or later
    but sure to make it easier for the cat I really suggest you get cat gras and let it grow and put it then near the food, so the cat can always eat a bit gras whenever it wants to

    Keep a very close eye on him. Does he still eat good?
    If it is to big the hairball gets stucked And then nothing helps, except a paste.
    You could ask the one behind the desk for a paste.
    Awww poor kitty, take care ok:smile:

    Yea...had to get antibiote liquid to bathe foot in everyday and pills and finally he threw up the hairball...I kid you not...it was almost half a foot long and black as hell...I guess when the swelling went down he could get it up.

    Kotsy - go down to your local pet supply place and buy a bag of KatNip!
    Put a rug on the floor and pour the KatNip on it. If you have never given this to your cat you will find that your kitten will go nuts! They spaz out over this stuff!
    The excitement and exercise will cause a rise in blood pressure and body temp which will in turn generate the energy, saliva, and force needed to expell that nasty bugger!

    And yes this is what i use both on my cat and dog and it works every time!
    And it is a heck of a lot cheaper than the vet!:eek:hyesss:

    oh and if ya can't find Katnip go to your local stop n cop and grab a dime of old fashioned red hair! Works about the same and ya can smoke it when kitty is done! LOL:roflmao:

    wyldgirl, I have never used Catnip. But I seen sprays and stuff.
    I have never bought it. Is it really true that cats go all crazy???
    I would know how my cat would respond. Maybe I give it a try to​

    It really is a great herb for a lot of things!

    It just doesn't get much press so people think it is just sumthin to get the cats high!

    And since I am a 5th generation HillBilly born n bred I got all kinds of these remedies that work as good if not better than any government approved FDA medicine you can buy!
