Worst. Hairball. Ever.
So, when any cat stops eating, many cat owners rush to the vet. When a four hundred pound tiger stops eating, you really rush to the vet. Internal medicine specialist Dr Brian Luria extracted a hairball the size of a basketball from the digestive system of Ty the Tiger. Ultrasounds identified the object, which was too big to extract by any other means.
Normally, the Modern Cat advice would be to switch to a high fiber cat food and groom more frequently, but we're sure that Ty receives excellent care from Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation. Also, we're not going to be the ones to tell a four hundred pound cat what to do.
