Any of you watch The Simpsons? You know how that big comic book guy is always saying "worst... (blank).... ever!" I had one of those moments last night. Worst.... hairball... ever!
It's the changing of the seasons and brofurs fur is starting to shed and grow his winter coat. This means he needs some SERIOUS grooming. I know mommy gave him a bath, but it just wasn't enough. I have been forced to groom brofur something serious though and he has some very long fur. Well, all this fur got in my tummy and was one heck of a hairball. It was terrible. I had just finished eating my dinner when I realized... uh oh... I gotta get rid of this hairball. Well I walked right into the living room and BLAH! Sadly... no hairball. Just all my nom noms. Oh it was a horrible night kitties. I vomited 3 or 4 times trying to pass that hairball. It was terrible. Mommy and daddy were so worried. They cleaned up all the barfs and sat with me all night, I just couldn't get that hairball out. I hacked something fierce, it sounded awful. Mommy gave me some hairball drugs to help pass it, but it just wouldn't come. That night I slept with mommy and at 5:30am I suddenly jumped up and ran out of bed. Mommy woke up and followed me. I was heaving and hacking and FINALLY... BLAH! GIANT HAIRBALL of River furs on the floor. Mommy was less than thrilled about being woken up early in the morning but was very happy I finally passed that crazy hairball. It had been a rough night. Since then, I've been very good. Mommy has decided until River's coat is done changing she's going to give me a hairball supplement everyday to make sure this doesn't happen again. She doesn't like me being in pain, even if it's just hairballs!
On a heavier note, I'm still purring for the beautiful Ingen who is missing in Madison right now after escaping from her mommy's motel room while moving with her family. Her family had to go onto the next stop, let's all purr that Ingen is found and brought back to her family, she's such a wonderful kitty. Mommy can't imagine how terrible it would be to lose a kitty on a move like that and have to leave without finding said kitty.
We're also still purring for our friend Tigger (from the catfather's family) who is in the hospital after having surgery. We hear he's been feisty today and even bit the vet tech! Good job Tigger! Those vet tech's are awful people, one called me fats! You get your feistys back AND get revenge on those vet techs for me! Hoping you make a full recovery.

Gahhh, I hate hairballs! Glad you got rid of it. Sending purrs for Ingen and Tigger.
That sounds horrible! Glad you were able to hack it up.
Purring nonstop for Ingen and Tigger!
Simone, I am sorry that you, with your lovely short fur, have to groom your long haired brother. Brothers are just never clean enough,are they? Mom took a cat grooming 101 class a few days ago and the groomer said you should continue to wash your cat until it makes a sqeek sound when you run your fingers thru the fur. Is River pretty good about getting his bath? Geesh, I hope Mom doesn't try that with us. I don't like water.
Gack! You made me want to help you!
Hairballs do cause a lot of trouble sometimes...
We too are purring continuously for Ingen to get back with her Mom, and for poor little Tigger to get well!
Aww Simone, sorry to hear that you had such a rough time with that hairball. Sounds like it was fighting back!
We are purring and purring so much at our house (for Tigger and for Ingen) that with 8 cats the neighbors think we have generator running in our house!
I feel your pain. I hack up some serious goobers myself. Glad you finally got that monstrosity out of there!
Hairballs stink! Glad you got rid of your monster hairball!
Wow! I'm glad you got rid of that hairball! It could have grown into an alien in your stomach. It's nice that you groom your brother. I guess you get half of the hairballs that River would normally get! I just saw in someone's diary that Ingen got found. I haven't made friends with her yet, I should.
Mom's never had experience with knowing much about hairballs. We hope it doesn't bug you much anymore now that you are taking your hairball supplement.
Ingen is now found! and we haven't heard yet that Tigger went into surgery! I guess we need to catch up on that...
