Poor old Rufus.

Remember that part of Beverly Hills Cop, right before Axel Foley puts the banana in the tail pipe, where Axel and goofy-ass Judge Reinhold and grumpy old Sgt. Taggert are on stakeout? And goofy-ass Judge Reinhold makes the comment that the average person of a certain age has a certain amount of beef stuck in their colon, or intestines, or whatever. Well, $200 dollars later at the vet, it's the same thing with Rufus, only there is a big mass of hair and hairballs plugging things up in her intestines. Suffice to say, nothing the vet gave Rufus has really made any progress, if ya know what I am saying. If things don't get better soon, doc says surgery is even a possibility. Yikes.

Pray for poop!

Extra credit points to anybody who knows what the hell ever happened to Judge Reinhold

hi John,

have you ever heard of a substance for cats that comes in some kind of toothpaste tube? it's usually spread over the areas of the body where the cats use their tongue a lot and prevents hairballs, since it attaches to all the swallowed hair - and makes it easier to come out.

I don't know if it would help Rufus at this stage, but maybe it can even lead to her expelling some the current hairballs. ask the vet...

best of luck for her!
