    10ish maybe

  • At least a couple. Haven’t really kept track of it haha

  • Michelle Spayde

    How many hairballs do I find in a month? TOO many! Seriously, I really don’t know.  My cats eat a primarily wet diet, and that helps with hairballs.  We see hairballs when the weather suddenly gets warm and humid and I can’t seem to keep up with the brushing.

  • 3x a week about

    Enough to say I haven’t kept count lol

  • Katharine

    I have 3 cats – 2 are Persian and 1 medium hair.  I lose count of the hairballs each month, lets just say … many hairballs

  • Deb Anderson

    let’s just say….several.  🙂

  • Mary Witter

    I have two short hair cats…haven’t really kept track…about four.

  • Jackie B

    Not too many!

  • Phoenix

    Please don’t make me count them!

  • Kat

    I have a short-hair but very hairy cat that hates to be combed. She coughs up hairballs maybe once a week right under our bed where its hard for me to reach.

  • Lets see I have 5 cats 3 of which are long haired 2 that are medium haired, I would say at least a dozen, and that is with me brushing them a lot.

    Not many, Leonardo has rather long fur (though he is still in the domestic short hair category) but truth be told he’s not a conscientious groomer. I’d say maybe 3 a month horked up in the least convenient areas of the carpet. In warm weather things get a bit hairier, so to speak.

  • Pamela C

    I found one once in the 14 months they’ve been alive but I try to brush the long hair girls

  • Anne Milkie

    I have not found any yet but I don’t want to….

    Maybe one. My cats eat hairball formula to prevent them from getting them.

  • Kristine L.

    Ugh…too many!  Average 1 or 2 per week (5 cats)

    I only find a couple because I feed hairball control food.

  • Debbie Penny

    I usually find a couple per cat per month. (I entered under the name debbie)

  • Probably three a month for Shasta – so far zero for Bigsby

  • I am not sure exactly.  Deimos has a few a month and Gonzo not so much. Maybe one a month or so for him. But when Deimos gets them he has to really fight them up.

  • Michelle Macaluso

    Usually about 4 or 5

  • Danielle Murgia

    Not that many.  Maybe 1 or 2

  • Anonymous

    There are a lot, especially this time of year.  Dexter is the worst even with hairball meds a few times a week.  Brian randomly.  Katniss likes to have hers in her water bowl.

     My cat doesn’t get hairballs, but I’m sure one of the special kitties at my local no-kill shelter could use this.

  • Maggie Ann True Armstrong

    Usually about 5-6 between my three cats… YUK!

  • it depends  on the cat  some  of them i have  2 and then they  get  up to 8 10
