  • There is a conconction you can make that will help get rid of them. It's been a long time since we had cats so I'm not sure about the proportions. All I remember is that it contained an egg yolk and some vegetable oil. I also remember that it worked. You might be able to find the proportions somewhere. Or maybe you could just experiement with it a little. I don't think either ingredient would hurt your cat.

  • I give my cats hair ball remedy as needed. Putting cats on a high fiber food can help as well

  • We feed our cats IAMS with hairball care. It seems to really work since they very seldom have a problem.
