"Excuse me."

"I would like to call to your attention the fact that there is a gob of Vaseline on my paw."


Thanks for the suggestion, Coco's Mom!

Oh, poor kitty! Did she finally lick it off? Usually they hate anything being on their paw and will lick it off to get rid of it. I hope it works for you . . . and for Scarlett.

She shook her paw a bit, glared at me a lot, and then eventually did lick it off :)

I was excited to see this suggestion since it meant I didn't have to go to the store to buy a specialized product - I'm not sure yet if it worked, but fingers crossed!

I thought of something else - does Scarlett let you brush her? My Jack will have nothing to do with it, but that's okay, he has fine, thin, hair anyway and has only had 1 hairball in his 5 years. Kate on the other hand has a lot of hair and she LOVES when I use the furminator. It's helped so much with her shedding. When she curls up next to me on the couch I use it for a little bit and Kate just loves it. It's helped with her hairballs too.

She is not a fan of the brushing. I try to brush her every now and again anyway since her shedding is pretty out of control, but it's a battle. I'm hoping I can train Melly early to like brushing since, as you say, it does help with the shedding and hairballs.

My Dex loved brushing as a baby, and now hates it. What changed, I don't know. He will tolerate the Zoom Groom (a rubber thingy), as long as I use a very light touch. Something like that might be worth a try for Scarlett?

Posting as Anonymous because I don't have any of the other listed ID types. Nice to see that Scarlett may be starting to accept Melly.

I never would have thought of trying Vaseline.
My orange guy eventually decided he didn't like the Petromalt type stuff. I have been using the Temptation Hairball treats for a few years now.
