My cat is in love with my hairbrush. Since felines clean themselves so much, they get buildups of hair in their systems. These balls of hair cause trouble in their digestive systems.
There are many types of medications available to help cats, rabbits, and dogs get the hairballs out or pass them through. Unfortunately, some cats don’t like those medications, so other ways need to be found to deal with the hair problem.
What I started to do is brush our cats with a regular hairbrush to remove excess hair. It works nicely. Sometimes it’s hard to brush down our cats when they want to see what is being done. It comes down to brushing as fast as I can, while the cat dances around craning her head to see. Our black cat with long silking hair dances. Our white cat has found another way to handle the brushing. She will lay on my lap and purr nicely. Then, when she knows I least expect it, she swipes at the brush, grabs it out of my hands and proceeds to purr louder and rub her face and chin all over the brush while she holds it.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d think she was in love with my brush. Can’t get the brush back either until she’s done with it.
