I just saw one of the Bengals being sick! I had been watching him because he had been eating grass all day. I got a picture. Could it have been a hairball?I hope he is all right! Crying or Very sad

nothing to worry about they eat grass all the time and will throw it back up this is normal ! yes they can get sick and have tummy ache but none of that is keeping a TIGER down !!! hehe !!!

Was it one of the Goldens or regular colored ones (clarance or Gypsy) ? I saw Marcan eatting grass this afternoon and Clarance earlier today !

Anyway nothing to worry about !!!

It was Clarence, I believe! He was really doing some heaving, it was on B/T 3 in that area if you need to check, in the edge of the grass straight out from the cam. Thanks for letting me know!

no big deal and don't need to check ! Clarance is huge (about 750 pounds)and is doing great so this is nothing to worry about and all the cats eat grass for a number of reason from hairballs to tummy aches but nothing serious !
