Hairball -- it sounds like some kind of reality show/extreme sport crossover you'd find on Spike TV. Unfortunately, it's nothing that fun or forgetable. Instead, it's my current predicament. At two-and-a-half, I haven't had but two hairballs, and that was this past summer. This latest hairball fiasco is really taking its toll. Mom and dad are worrying about me, I keep trying to hack it up, but can't, and mom and dad are trying all kinds of remedies. They have a gel that they have tricked me to eat a few times, and they picked up some Purina hairball treats, but I've never been a real treat fan, so I don't eat them much. Hopefully this'll all be over soon and I can get back to my good old self.
