The problem with having 6 cats is that you always find a hairball that’s been yakked up somewhere. Unfortunately, these hairballs I find are often white in color. And that tells me one thing, Merlin.
Merlin likes to keep himself pristinely clean and sparkling white. Or, as sparkling as you can get white hair. It really doesn’t sparkle. However, Merlin is the principal groomer of George as well. So, he manages to ingest probably double the hair of the other cats if you take into account that he and George both are long-haired.
And while this is a gross find nearly every day, I’ve come to accept that here at Blackberry Hill, there will always be something gross to clean up on a daily basis. Someone is almost always having an issue of some sort be it a hairball or tummy upset or the remains of dead critters caught and savored by either the dogs or the cats. I’ve become to see it as part of my daily routine.
I’ve tried just about everything I can think of to help poor Merlin out with his hairball issue. It doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Maybe I should just shave him…
