i knit, sew and lots of embroidery........ i always try to lock my storage units and sewing baskets but my two cats can unlock 2-3 of my baskets. the worst one was when binx ate half a ball of yarn and had trouble breathing hubby held him while i pulled, vet gave him some pain meds cus his throat was raw but otherwise unharmed (thank heavens)

My cat once swallowed a shoe lace. Though I found out about it when it got out on the other side of the cat...

Watching my cat being chased by his poo on a string... Didn't know if I should be scared or laugh.

Oh god, my cat once got to a spool of thread and managed to swallow metres of the stuff and I had to pull it all out -_-

Thankfully not that long. It is common. Because of the direction the barbs on a cats tongue, they have a hard time spitting things outs. I've pulled out sting and fuzz before. Poor babies. ^.^

Yeah, it was a really long string and over half of it had been swallowed! Poor thing kinda puked as i pulled it out, but thats better than an emergency vet trip for tangled string in her tummy.

I never have, but my sister has. Her cat will eat tings off the floor and get hairs hanging out of her mouth, so my sister will have to fight her cat to get the hair.

Hmm.. it's hard to say how long. I think it was at least 6 inches for one of them. Never leave out one of those cat toys that is a string/ribbon on a stick.

No. BUT. I heard her sneezing once and saw a tiny bit of green at he nostril. Picked her and finally grabbed it. Pulled it out and it was a 4 inch blade of grass. How it got in there like that is beyond me. Lol!

I have had a lot of cats over the years.. I've had to do that a few times, always following with a scolding not to eat random things. Luckily I always got it out before it hit throat (still in the sucking it into the mouth while chewing phase) and it was never too long, but I never measured. =_=;

One of my drawing binders has a bookmark ribbon attached that I have to hide the part that sticks out our Batmunk will go over there and try to chew it up. She knows better, she just doesn't care..

thankfully my cats dont eat random home is a mess so it could be  real dngerzone if they did (in which case I would be better at keeping the rooms mess-free)

Not string, per se. Our cat was attracted to the thin decorative ribbon from table centerpieces at a party we had. He ate some but later "extricated" it himself.

Well, my grandma was here with us for around a month or so, and she sews to pass her time. Naturally, there's a bunch of thread everywhere, but thankfully my cats didn't swallow any of them, so we didn't suffer any cases of having to pull strings out of their throats XDDD

Now, hair, on the other hand....

Sometimes, we had to pull those out of their butts.

Haha it happens to me! XD but she swallowed it so I couldn't pull it out. Was the weirdest thing. Haha. The bit that was hanging out was probably only about 20cm. Haha

probably one of my weirdest poll.... bunneh icon5 bunneh icon4 bunneh icon5  

i come from a family of seamstresses, & we have cats swallowing threads from time to time. in fact just recently,  i took out like a whole meter of sewing thread out of one of my cats (gently of course)... 

so i'm curious to know, is it a common thing, especially to cat owners, who r into sewing.
