Thank you, i'll take on board all advice, so relieved its nothing serious!
hi, yes it can be quite upsetting to see a cat struggling to cough up a hairball b/c they do choke when it becomes lodged in the windpipe..
this sounds very much like what is happening. Get a good comb and brush her frequently so you get all that dead loose hair out before its ingested. but to rid her of the hairball she is now trying to expel buy some 'hairball remedy' at a petstore..such as laxatone or just get some plain white petroleum jelly(vaseline)..put abt an inch on your finger and let her lick it off, add a treat on top to get her started. do this everyday until the hairball passes than once or twice a week afterwards....if needed.
Do not every force petroleum jelly or such products into your cats mouth, they can choke on it, this needs to be gently licked off..let us know how you make out ok.
Thank you, may up the combing more to be on the safe side .
it sounds like a hair ball to me. keep an eye on her and if she starts to look like she is having issues then have a vet take a look at her. in the mean time make sure your groom her by combing her fur to make sure that more hair doesnt add to the hairball before she can get it out.
