And now, we bring to you the Top 15 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Hairballs:

1. The average cat spends 1/3 of their waking life grooming themselves. Let’s do the math:

  • Most cats sleep an average of 13-14 hours per day
  • Most cats groom themselves for 3-4 hours per day
  • That only leaves 7 hours per day to play, demand food, stare at you in a condescending manner, and vomit hairballs on to your Persian rug for you to study, wondering what it is that’s on your floor.

2. The average person spends 1 hour per week staring at a regurgitated hairball and wondering what it is. (Okay, we made that stat up, but the rest of the stats in this article are true).

March is National Women’s History Month, and if I asked, you could probably give me the name of at least one woman you know who has played a part in changing the way our society treats animals. Just as any modern human rights movement, there were pioneers that paved the road before them. While there are many women from our past that have changed things for the better, we’ll be spotlighting three who bucked against the status quo of their time.

Caroline Earle White was born in Philadelphia in 1833. A writer and avid philanthropist, her heart to stop animal cruelty began as a child when she witnessed the abuse of horses firsthand. It devastated her, and her husband suggested that she join the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the first organization of its kind in the world.
