As we've already said, cats can purr when they're sick or hurt, even when they're asleep. If this is the case, you will probably see other worrying signs

When to worry if your sleeping cat is purring

Purring by itself isn't cause for concern, but if it occurs frequently and is accompanied by other symptoms, it's time to transport your cat to the vet for an examination.

Use Stool Softeners

Regular physical exercise promotes consistent digestive flow. The more frequently your cat uses the toilet, the less likely he will become constipated and produce hairballs.

Exercise Consistently

Because eating grass can cause your cat to vomit, cats who are suffering from hairballs may be tempted to gnaw on it.

Grow Cat Grass

If you want to give your cat a hairball remedy, fish oil is a good choice, but he avoids pastes and hairball-specific recipes.

Use Fish Oil

Again, you may want to consider rewarding your cat with a small treat when it successfully catches something; otherwise, they may become bored and irritated.
