Feline Fine Art Friday
It’s National Hairball Awareness Day which is no joke. Some cats are more prone to hairballs depending on their coat, diet, general health and grooming. Indoor/outdoor cats will shed more as we head towards warmer summer weather. We usually do Friday Funnies but I thought we’d pay cats our respect today since they are forever teased and ridiculed in photos, cartoons and LOLs.
Cat maintain a quiet dignity despite being made fun of. They truly do provide a refuge from the storms of life and a soft, loving cushion of purring fur.
Tomorrow is the deadline to submit your cat’s photo for Domino’s birthday May Day party on May 1. Email it to Layla or leave a comment if you’d like me to use a photo from your blog.
Nice artwork 🙂
Yes, hairballs are a serious matter.
They can block the gut and when that happens, it’s a life threatening situation.
Long haired cats such as the Maine Coon are especially vulnerable to blockage.
Daily brushing is required for many different breeds. Even short haired cats need to get brushed a couple times a week.

Its us again! We were going to email you some photos for your birthday celebration but seem to be having some email issues. If you have the time and think of it, please feel free to use any of our photos you’d like. We’d love to be included.
We’ll send some along if we can figure it out to save you the trouble.
Thanks & purrs!

Hairballs are no laughing matter! They are an art to yak, and an art to clean up.

That is a mighty fine picture of Domino 🙂
Mom brushes us and we love it too!!
She probably does it because she does not like hairballs, but then,neither do we 😉

Love the photo, and the quote is purrfect — and so true!
Great picture of our favorite kitty, that Dom. He is just so handsome. Have a great day.
My Sister Zoe is thrilled, she thinks they did that day in honor of her!
Awww! Sweet pic 🙂 Do you want an action pic, Layla? I will send something later on when I’m on the laptop x
Great. I’m doing mostly head shots.
Our furballs are Ichiro (soft shedding all the time) and Gemini (lots of undercoat–fortunately she loves the furminator!). I have some shedding but not so much.
When I saw “fine art” I had to stop by to see. Domino looks fine posterized! I missed the photo op, but I’m sure you have enough and I’m not sure I could choose only one! Any reason May 1 is Domino’s birthday? My household were all May 1 until just a few years ago–because a friend’s cat really was born on May 1! Plus, it’s right in the middle of kitten season, and though I knew some of my cats were born at other times of the year I never knew anyone’s birthday until the Fantastic Four. Happy May Day coming up!
The real fine art I leave to you 🙂 May 1 is his designated birthday for a number of reasons. For astrology and numerology(he so Taurus and a #1),to celebrate Beltane and it’s the anniversary of my father’s death which I wanted to reframe.
My crowd is shedding by the bushel…if there was a market for fur I’d never have to work again.
love your photo!! Did you receive ours? We sent one in
I love this photo!!!!

We didn’t know it was National Hairball Day. I used to get lots but I keep jumping on the cat tree to make sure mum brushes me every day.
*note from mum* More like 10 times a day Eric! You’re addicted to the Zoom Groom and the Furminator.
Looks like you caught Domino in the middle of a “slow blink” – lovely photo!
