Hairballs are very normal for a cat, even with short hair. You can either go to the pet supply store and buy some hairball medicine, or you can do what I do and use vaseline.
I only give them the vaseline when I hear them start coughing. I just put a dab onto the front paw and they lick it off. It helps the hair digest easily.
