I think they misplaced a decimal point. Forty pounds would be about right, for a basketball-sized sopping wet hairball.

In 2009, a retired policeman called Geraint Woolford was admitted to Abergale Hospital in north Wales and ended up next to another retired policeman called Geraint Woolford. The men weren’t related, had never met and were the only two people in the UK called Geraint Woolford.

A bag full of damp hair doesn't weigh that much. (I'm basing this on salon floor sweep-up.) Hair isn't that heavy.
Out of the people that ever were, almost all of them are dead.
There are way more dead people, and you're all gonna die
and then you're gonna be dead for way longer than you're alive.
Like that's mostly what you're ever gonna be.
You're just dead people that didn't die yet.

There isn't normally much air at all in an animal's stomach. There are powerful muscles constantly squeezing it and moving stuff around, to aid digestion. The air is squeezed out.
I've read reports of young girls having hairballs much heavier than four pounds removed. ( nowhere near basketball size ).

This claim always makes me ask about tattoos. Do the cells just replace themselves around the ink molecules, or does the body faithfully replace the ink molecules as if it's part of the body? :ask:
Although it may look like a forum, this site is actually a crowd-sourced science project modelling the slow but inexorable heat death of the universe.

I'm not an expert, but I think that the ink molecules are inserted between cells, so when the cells slough off and are replaced the ink is simply re-surrounded by new cells. I'm not drunk enough just yet to work out the details of this hypothesis, mind you. But give me an hour or two.

Great article. It claims that it was both 4 pounds and 10 pounds.

Different balls, different balls. I shouldn't have to be giving help with reading.

If a young girl can have a ten pound hairball, I can't see a four pound one bothering a 500 pound tiger.

Oops. I didn't actually read the article properly. I saw 4 pounds in the title and 10 further down in the article.
