National Hairball Awareness Day!

Hi there everyone!  Cory and Figaro here to celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day.  Did you know that with all of us kitties and a woofie here at Casa de Cory we produce a whole lotta floof!?  Yup, it keeps mom busy all the time.   Mom has a whole collection of brushes and combs but her favorite grooming tool of all time is the FURminator.  It's the only thing that works for all of us.  Some of us...who shall remain nameless...uh...US...are squirmy and so mom has to work fast to get some of our shedding floof.  The FURminator can get more floof per second than any of our other brushes and stuff.

So anyway, mom was offered a free FURminator to participate in this year's National Hairball Awareness Day contest.  All mom had to do was convince us the be de-floofed for charity!  I thought...for a second and agreed.


So did Figaro


Ok, so did all of the kitties in our house!   Mom quickly produced a pile of furs to create a Hairball Celebrity. 


Mom used Figgy's white fur for the face of our Gene "Hairball" Simmons furball.  Then she used my black furs for his hair and face.   I think mom messed up using pipe cleaner for his tongue...next time I will advise mom to use felt or something like that...or maybe she could have colored Figgy's fur pink!  Ha!


So...what's cool is that we were chosen as one of 5 finalists by FURminator which means we have won stuff for our charity, United Paws of Tillamook.  The winning furball will get $1000 for their charity.

I still use the $.99 slicker I got from the dollar store. I also use it to de-fur the condo and couches and patio carpet. I love it. :)

How fabulous to have won $$ for your charity! Way to go!

We think your Mom has a future as a fiber artist! We have a variety of grooming tools, and Mommy thinks the furminator works the best.

Some humans suggested that my human should have made ZZ Top out of the big pile of Boodie fur she FURmiated... and I think they were right!
