A cat should always have access to grass. You can but trays of grass seeds at the pet shop. All you need do is water it for a few days and the grass will grow. Your cat will eat the grass which makes it sick and the hairball will come up easily. (My cat eats my spider plant but the out- come is the same.)

Another alternative is to buy anti hairball pills("Whiskas"). They are malt based and the cat should have about 10 a day. This doesn't make the cat sick but allows the hairball to pass through the intestines and comes out with the poo. Pills also available at pet shops.

There's also special dried cat food for "city cats" who probably can't get to grass or plants as easily as country cats. This cat food also stops hairballs forming. In Spain the brand is "Friskies"

Hope this is helpful - it's very distressing when your cat starts choking.

I'm not a vet but I have had several cats. Whenever one of them sounded as if they were gagging it meant that they had a furball and they were trying to cough it up. After they have coughed it up (this make take a few days before they finally succeed) you will find it, hopefully on the floor and not on the furniture.

What do you do if there is blood on your rabbits water bottle and shes suddenly biting and is meaner?

If there is blood on the bottle, she could be injured. If she has never really been mean in the past, then something may be wrong. If you can, inspect her. See if she shows any signs of injury or illness. It sounds like it is time to get her in to see the vet.
