National Hairball Awareness Day

"Happy" National Hairball Awareness Day, everybody!

I would post a picture of a hairball in its natural habitat, but since many of you are Cats and Cat People, I'm sure you're all competent hairball identifiers.  (Just so you know, AAB Ritchie needs some training in that regard.  He has called my hairballs "poos" in the past.)

My staff is preparing me for Hairball Awareness Day by administering a nice Furmination:

I will *not* smile for the camera.
I know I don't look especially happy in the photo above, but I am purring and purring.  I love a good Furmination.  Takes care of those itchy, hard-to-reach spots!

Still not smiling.
I hope to celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day by NOT experiencing a hairball.  See all that Fur that AAB Britta extracted from my coat?  That is at the half-way point!

Now that I'm freshly Furminated, I'm all sleek and smooth and ready for more pettings and belly-rubs!

I hope you all have someone to brush or Furminate you so that you aren't plagued by yucky hairballs.  Especially you long-haired kitties--wow, keeping up with those fabulous fur coats must be a lot of work!

Have a happy, hairball-free day!


PS Thanks to AAB Barb L for bringing this special day to my attention.

Even though, I am medium-furred, I'm what they call "single coated," and I get a show groom every couple of weeks, so I don't get Furminated. Boodie, our fluffiest kitty does, though, and wow, does she make a big pile of fur!
