Hi fellow cat lovers )
I have a problem with one of my cats. Mr.Chubbs is about a year old now and I've noticed that in the past couple of weeks he's been shedding a whole lot more. Now I know what you are gonna say "Duh he's a cat" hehe The thing is I can't stand animal hair. I brush him at least once a day and as soon as I finish and pet him, there's a bunch of hair all over him again. I worry more about hairballs since I've started noticing him making retching sounds. Is there anything that I can use to help keep the excess hair off of him. It's getting to the point where I'm finding clumps of hair all over my house. And yes I know I'm a very picky cat owner LOL )

have you ever tried a Zoom Groom? You can find them in Fosters Smith. Having pets is usually a guarantee of some pet hair flying around...not sure if there is much you can do about them shedding especially this time of year.

I give my cats Pounce Hairball treats when they start to show signs of hairball issues.

I'll go and pick up some of the Pounce for hairballs and see if that helps. I haven't found any vomit from him, so far he's just making retching sounds. I'll go to Pet Smart and try to see what a Zoom Groom is. Thanks for the quick response!
