Flag New to PawTalk, cat problem please help!

Hello All,

My cat lunchbox is a 7-8 month old kitten. hes very active and very playful. about 2 days ago he got into hairball position as most cats do but made the loudest most disturbing noise. the only way i could describe it is if somebody were stepping on a wild goose. anywho, he spit up just a little bit. no food no hairball just. hes now dones this about 6 times over the past 3 days. hes not throwing up his food. hes still eating well and drinking and is still very active. still purring and playing like nothings wrong.

hopefully somebody could tell me whats going on?

Thanks

my cat does something similair, hes a long haired cat and goes through the motions of s furball, being very loud and dramatic, but just tummy vile comes up, after a few days of this the grossest hairball will follow lol, the vet said its natural and for us to just groom him more to try and get the fur off him before he gets it in him lol...but if you are worried and/or its a new behavior you may want to take your cat to the vet just to be safe. anytime my cats have a change in behavior or such I always take them to the vet to be safe...


Hope all is ok with your furbaby

My cat, Lucky, did the same thing. Out of 9 cats, he was the only one!

It depends on the cat and how muh they ingest while grooming. I would suggest increasing the brushing and maybe introduce a malt lick stick alternative. It's generated to smooth out the tracts and allow for the passage of hair so it does not mat in the intestines. I just bought one for my sister's Illusion and he loves to lick it. Waiting to hear back about hairballs and hacking. I recommend them, too, bc I gave them to my bunnies before papaya and it worked on them
