Once in a while I find something on the floor that almost looks like a piece of poo but it is dark in color and "gooey" It almost looks like a big worm.

Is that what a hairball looks like?

I've never seen this until Baxter. Occasionally I've heard him trying to cough something up but nothing came up at those times.

I've never seen him once clean Barnaby but Barnaby does clean him.

That's strange because Barnaby sheds much more than Baxter but I've never seen a hairball from Barnaby. The hairball is also gray in color which would make me think it's Barnaby but like I said, I've never seen this in almost 4 years, until Baxter arrived.

Maybe it was a Barnaby hairball from the excess fur due to cleaning Baxter. Or did you actually see Baxter puke it up?

Never saw Baxter puke but he's made the sounds a number of times and I've heard Barnaby doing that maybe twice in all the time I've had him and nothing came of it. It may remain a mystery until I actually see it happen.

Hehehe, my guess would be that it's Barnaby's hairball. I say that because Psi has suddenly started coughing them up too, and that's because he cleans Sigma. Pretty gross, huh?

In all my life I've never actually seen it happen.
Only come across them in some surprise location...like on a windowsill or under the coffee table on the rug! And who knows how long that one sat there.

It's very, very rare that i find them at all though.
