Question by Confused: What’s a good rememdy for cat fur balls, my cat coughs like he has a fur ball but can’t get it up?
My male cat coughs occasionally, doesn’t seem sick, but seems to be like a fur ball caught and can’t get it up or throw it up. What is something to do to get it up for him, any good rememdy’s? Also, even though he doesn’t seem sick, would you still take him to the vet or see if it is the fur ball first. He’s still eating, drinking water, loving just as normal just goes and hides when he coughs every now and then, and my other cats look at him funny. It’s kind of a rough sounding cough, and rarely and a friend heard it and said fur ball. I don’t have alot of money, but he’s my baby, and if need to take him, I would spend my grocery money if need be….please help.
He’s 4 yrs old and really healthy. But, he’s like my baby, and my protector cat, and love him so much. He’s neutered too if that makes a difference.

hairballs r caused by the cat swallowing hair while it grooms,so if u brush its fur often, it might stop.
