Today is National Hairball Awareness Day, and to celebrate, we’re giving away a Furminator De-Shedding Tool to one lucky reader.

We explained yesterday why a hairball is rarely just a hairball, and that frequent hairballs are not part of a normal life with cats.

Regular brushing and grooming can help prevent hairballs (but it’s not the only thing that can). When it comes to getting rid of loose hair, there are few tools that get the job done better than the Furminator De-Shedding Tool.

To enter the giveaway, please tell me in a comment why you would like to win this tool, and specify whether you’d like the large or small tool and whether it’s for a short haired or long haired cat. For an additional chance to win, tweet about this giveaway or share on Facebook, and post the link in a separate comment. This giveaway ends Friday, May 4.

For more information about the deshedding tool, please visit the Furminator website or their Facebook page.
