what do hairballs look like?
My boy Recon just threw up a couple times, and it's the first time that one of the cats has thrown up. And it totally freaked me out! I won't lie. I'm assuming it's a hairball, cause he's playing with me right now like he didn't just vomit on the carpet.

So tell me it was just a hairball so I don't freak out! :)

A hairball looks like any old clump of hair that you might pull out of a drain, kind of wet and matted.

If it gets to be a problem, have Recon lick a little bit of Vaseline off your fingertip on a daily basis. As you do it, praise him with tons of love, followed with a cat treat. This way he learns to associate this as a good experience.

A hairball can also resemble a baby mouse but without the head & tail, & if you have a medium to long haired cat & they groom themselves a lot it will matt & come up as if they have messed the wrong end generally with a bit of fluid my cat used to do it quite regularly
