Why do cats get hairballs?



  1. 0 Votes

    Cats get hairballs if they are not groomed regularly. When they lick themselves, hair sticks to their tongues, and they swallow it. When too much hair is swallowed than can be digested without creating a blockage, your cat begins having hairballs.

    It’s because they clean themselves.  If they have a lot of shedded fur underneath their top coat, it can get digested.  This comes back up as a hairball.  One way to make this less of a problem is to brush them with a pet comb.  Not only does it eliminate the problem, but your cat will like the way it feels, too!
