Why deal with vomit-encrusted fur tangles when you can stop the retching before it starts?

Every afternoon I mix water, canned cat food and pumpkin up for my kitty girls Tinkerbelle and Purmione.

I add a little cat grass when I’ve got enough growing.

They love the concoction and stumble all over themselves and each other when it’s served.

They even beg for plain pumpkin when I open the jar to add some to my coffee.

Their veterinarian told me about the hairball-prevention pumpkin trick.

It works like gangbusters to keep their digestive tracts clear.


I bet it also help the kitties with hydration.

One caveat: the vet says not to give them “too much”, it can cause some medical issue I can’t pronounce now.

Though we didn’t talk about how much is too much, he did say up to 1 tablespoon per day is fine for an average healthy cat.

I stick with that and they’re thrilled with this unexpected treat.

Who thought cats would love such a thing.

Now their cat lovers can too.

Hairball Relief Recipe:

  • 1/4 can wet cat food
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp filtered water
  • A pinch – or more – of homegrown cat grass

Mix well and serve daily for happy healthy cats!

And a less stressed-out me. I’ve got enough to clean 🙂
