Wow! I had a long hair cat named Tycho who maybe had one hairball in 12 years, but my German shepherd Lily who I’ve only had for about 6 months, just yakked up the biggest hairball I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I specifically used the word yakked because that’s about the size and level of hairiness of what I had to clean up.
I had a long hair cat named Tycho (a Maine coon/Russian Gray mix?) for 12 years, and I don’t think in his entire life he shed as much fur as my German Shepherd Lily has shed in the past two weeks. (This doesn’t count the 20 pounds of fur I’ve bushed off of her with a Furminator in the past week either.)
Time to buy a robot vacuum cleaner I think.
