I Believe

Inca and the hairball remedy

The other day, Inca scared me badly. I was in the kitchen doing something, and I heard this awful coughing. Inca is 12.5 years old, and I've only had one other cat live that long. I was on the phone, and the person said it sounded like when her cat coughed up a hairball. This really didn't surprise me since Inca has been shedding badly lately. But I never found the hairball.

She did it again this morning while I was asleep. I'm just waking up so have no idea what awaits me in the living room yet. I looked up natural remedies...

Oe teaspoon canned pumpkin. Daily. apparantly Inca is a smart little thing. I've been trying to see if she can wean from the pumpkin since the weather is cooling.

I'm sorry, kitty.
