It has come to my attention that the petroleum in cat hairball remedy can cause diarrhea in cats. Also, I have just read that mineral oil (also found in petroleum jelly) used in excess can deplete Vitamin A in your cat.
From this research, I am now in favor of giving your cat canned pure pumpkin which is a fibre and will help eliminate excess hair from the cat's stomach. Also comb your cat daily if it is a groomer. It will help to rid a lot of the loose hair.
This is a product that is new to me. One of my kitty-clients is on this and it is helping with his joint pain.
Ed on this. Since his accident last summer (fell off the couch and did damage to his back left leg), he is 23 after-all, he has a funny gate to his walk now. He still does the stairs everyday and jumps up on the couch numerous times throughout the day. I don't think he is in any pain but cats can be very stoic and it is hard to know sometimes.
I'm glad the weekend has come to a close. I am toast. This had to be one of the busiest weekends ever for cat-sitting. Great fun, enjoyed every minute of it, got to see lots of my favorite kitties but I'm done like dinner.
Buddy (from Bud & Chase) gave me a 'cat in window' for you.
He has lots of beautiful windows to sit at and 'hunt'. Actually, these two boys do go outside but not on my watch.
Back home, all is peaceful and quiet.
Audrey is sleeping anyway.
Sierra, Lily, Audrey & EdShe is one of the 'big guys' now, joining them all on the couch for the afternoon siesta. And they all accept her which I am grateful for.
