Our cat Missy keeps regurgitating hairballs. After watching Ren and Stimpy back in the day, I imagined hairballs to be grey and round with bits of hair and twig sticking out of them, but they are not like this. They are like huge black slugs made of really dense matted slimy hair and mucus, swimming in a pool of bile. Missy is lucky we love her so much or she'd be made to live in the garden where such things can be left to decompose naturally instead of me having to pick them up with tissues and copious amounts of antibacterial handwash. We try to brush her all the time to reduce the amount of hair in her stomach, but she just plays with the brush and tries to eat the hair that's in its bristles. Ew.
Just thought you all should know.
