Season 3 Episode 128 of the Lucky Ferals cat family vlog features a massive cat hairball, birthday presents for Stella and Boo, and more including:
Day 1068 – Ditto came by for some food. Something was going on with his mouth. Grandma Feral told me what Grandpa found on the lawn. I found a massive hairball on Stella’s new rug. Evidence points to Splash. Ditto was making hairball noise. Stella and Boo got birthday presents from Grandma and Grandpa.
Natural Cat Hairball Remedies
The best way to avoid cats coughing up hairballs is to brush them on a regular basis. The more loose hair that you can brush up, the less loose hair they will ingest when they clean themselves, and the less hair there will be building up inside of them into a hairball (which they were later expel). You need to brush them more often in the spring and summer months because they shed more of their hair/fur during this time. This is the number one way to prevent hairballs. Since Splash does not let me brush nearly as much as the other cats, he is the one that is prone to getting hairballs.

Once a cat has a hairball, you may notice them making hacking or coughing noises as they try to cough up the hairball and vomit it out. Some cats don’t make those noises and instead only make a quieter regurgitating or pumping noise before expelling their hairball. A good way to get the hairball moving is to give the cat a bit of natural oil. I use a squirt of salmon oil or some coconut oil. If I use salmon oil, I usually put some on a plate, and they lick it right up because they like the fishy taste of it. For coconut oil, I usually put some on their paw. Since they don’t like having it on their paw, they then lick it off of their paw. Either way, they consume the oil which then helps to lubricate the hairball and then they can more easily vomit the hairball out through their mouth or pass it through their digestive system.
