Is that a word, FURmination? Don't know...but it should be. We FURMinated our girl the other day and she loved it, as usual. Many of our readers probably know we're participating in a fun hairball awareness campaign where we created a celebrity person out of...hairballs.
Sort of. Our celebrity was the ever-young and so sarcastic, Maxine, who is the very embodiment of our Wabby Wibby, aka The Grumpy Old Lady. See image here:
Beyond that, here are some hairball facts our FURminator folks shared with us -
- Hairballs can lead to problems in the gut including vomiting (as if anyone doesn't know that!), constipation or diarrhea, and even intestinal obstructions. Ouch!
- Grooming is the best way to prevent hairballs. If your cat is elderly, like ours, you may need to help. That's why we love the FURminator so much - it really keeps Wabby looking her best and feeling her best.
- We learned that a twice a week grooming with FURminator can remove up to 90% of the loose hair and undercoat - while leaving our kitty sleek and beautiful.
I don't know about you, but making sure our kitty is healthy by helping her with her grooming, isn't too much to ask. She's a bit old now (you read yesterday's post, right?) and she appreciates the extra attention. We appreciate the way she looks and feels after we spend some time FURminating her. Ah, the joy of all that attention - if only someone would FURminate us!
