Kitty Star of the Week for Mar. 26 - Apr. 1, 2000.

Hairball is 7 years old and the brother of Snowball (whom we met last week). According to his main person, Bob, Hairball thinks he is a dog. He loves to be petted -- the rougher the better. He also will eat almost anything; he'll finish off his sister's food if she doesn't eat it quickly enough. Bob has to spread out the food dishes so that Snowball has a chance to get her food before Hairball decides to munch on it.

Besides food, Hairball enjoys shoulder rides. He likes to bat wadded up pieces of paper on the floor to his sister. He is also the one that wakes Bob up. (Snowball sits off to the side and watches while Hairball does the waking. Bob suspects that Snowball is the one who gets Hairball to do it.)

Hairball has 25 toes! He has 6 toes on 3 paws and 7 on the 4th. His one front paw almost has an opposible thumb. He used to pick up popcorn with that paw and eat it when he was a kitten (but he's off popcorn now).

Hairball got his name because when he was a kitten he liked to climb up Bob's bare legs, and Bob would say "you little hairball, cut that out!"
