Well as so many of you imagined, my dream for a shed-free weekend with these two boys was foolish. There are times when I remember why I always had only one cat in the past. Double the cat, and double the output issues.
End of last week, Greyson was the one. Pretty close to one am (for three nights in a row) there was a hairball incident. Naturally he left the offending item right in the path from the bed to the light. Why is it ALWAYS right in your path in the dark?
Just as things were settling down with Greyson, things heated up with Quill. Poor kitty is still not feeling his best. I think he's okay, just trying to work it out of his system.
Of course neither of them likes any of the hairball remedies. Sigh. Fin loved them, treated it like it was candy. I've tried all the flavors and different brands too. I tried a bit of mayo, pumpkin and coconut oil to no avail. Last night in desperation, I smeared a little on each of their paws. Greyson licked it right off (score!). Quill acted like I had smeared a vile substance and ran from me for almost fifteen minutes (during which time he rubbed it off). He didn't even come to bed until he was sure I was asleep.
Both of them are growing suspicious of my actions. On the plus side they both enjoy the extra grooming. Quill loves the ZoomGroom! He purrs and sprawls out like a champ. Thank Cod for that because that boy is furry! So if you could spare a couple small purrs we would all appreciate it.
