Surgeons remove tiger's basketball-sized hairball

May 23, 2013 Full story: WBIR-TV Knoxville 11

It's not unusual for a cat to get a hairball, but a 400-pound tiger needed help from veterinary surgeons in Florida when he couldn't hack up a basketball-size hairball by himself.

This is so bad. Poor cat. Do this happen to the tigers in the wildness? He need to eat some grass like my kitten to get tummy ached empty.

That's probably the reason his putting game wasn't doing very well.

They should knit it into sweaters for the Syracuse University cheerleaders. Or maybe DePauw. Or Auburn. Or Grambling. Or Princeton. Or Clemson.

Looks like a entire family of Tribbles...Mom, Dad and Baby.

You probably have to be over the hill and had to have watched the original Star Trek show to get that.

I guess if you're too stupid to notice something before it gets to the size of a basketball, you are in the wrong line of work. Things can be done that don't require surgery, if someone doesn't have their thumb up their ass and is only a little observant. I truly feel sorry for animals that have to suffer because their keepers are so ignorant. Maybe if the keepers had something the size of a basketball in their body, they might be a little more responsible.
