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)
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..
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.
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.
