Does your cat...

Does your cat ever sit on something and just stare at the ceiling and meow? I noticed Itty Bitty Kitty doing this a few times and there's nothing there that I can see. It's kind of funny, but weird at the same time. O_o

Also, does anyone have advice on giving hairball medicine? Bat has short fur, but licks himself constantly and throws up A LOT of icky fur. When I try to give him his medicine for them I have to practically chase him around the house (not to mention the scratching and biting in the process), and if I put it in wet food he just doesn't eat it. I use Petromalt Hairball Remedy, has anyone else used this and is there a better more...appealing brand that works just as well?

Just the Petromalt: Hairball remedy. It's malt flavored and says it's "an aid in the elimination of swallowed hair and the prevention of hairballs". I dunno if that's considered medicine, but that's what I call it. ^_^

There are other brands with more flavors to choose from.

What I have right now is NaturVet's Natural Hairball Aid with Catnip. I don't know about the catnip content, probably not enough to matter, but my girls will eat any and all hairball remedies I give them.

There are lots of choices:

Samantha would lick the Petromalt right out of the tube, with Meme I'd have to smear a dollop on her front paws so she'd be forced to lick it off.

marie73: Thanks very much! I'll look into one with maybe a more appealing flavor. Bat has ALWAYS been a picky eater and he has a pretty sensitive stomach.

Cooncatbob: Itty Bitty Kitty loves the Petromalt, but that's what I have to do to Bat. I have to put it on his paws or on his mouth, usually wherever I can get it before he squirms away from me. He's a stubborn one, that cat! ^_^

My cat does stare at the ceiling - she seems very interested and attracted to it, but she doesnt meow. My kitty rarelly meows,,only when she wants to go outside or inside of bedroom during the night actually. However she does a lot of bird chirps sounds.

Teehee, R2D2! I love trills! Bat doesn't meow or purr often but trills a bunch. As for Itty Bitty and her ceiling obsession- I have no idea. I'd just like to know why she stares at it so much. She doesn't meow much either come to think of it. Usually only when my boyfriend and I leave the room and she's looking for us. She hates being alone. Or if we have raw potato. O_O She tries to get the potatoes from us when we're peeling them. She sneaks up and does the yawn-and-stretch to act like she's not interested, then when you're not looking she runs off with a chunk of raw potato. XD

My girls stare at nothing and it freaks me out. They were on the end of my bed yesterday, looking down at the carpet for the longest time. I thought, oh, holy crap, ants!! Nope. Nothing. They do this a LOT.
