hairballs

My kitty sassy has a hairball and she just cant seem to get it out, I have tried doing the butter, and the pumpkin. She eat controlled hairball cat food and I dont see that it is helping.

Switching from dry science diet to Wellness canned cat food really made a difference in hairballs for my cat. She hardly ever has them anymore. I think because there is more moisture in canned food it helps pass everything thru faster.

Why do you think it's a fur ball? Could it be something else? what are her symptoms?

Hairball cat food is a marketing gimmick. Try giving hairball remedy - Petromalt, Laxatone, Laxastat or similar. For best results, it needs to be given on an empty stomach several hours before the next meal.

But I have to echo nanook: are you sure it's a hairball?

Have you tried giving them cat grass? I grew some at home for my kitties because of hairballs and it seems to have helped. Plus, they really love it! I got mine from this store on ebay - I figured out it's much cheaper than getting it in the pet stores:
