I made myself a bologna and cheese sandwich and threw away the red string-thing that goes around the bologna, my cat then knocked over the trash can and stole it, proceeding to eat it. This was almost a week ago and she seems fine. Are these harmful to cats? Do I need to call the vet anyway?
Honestly I don’t think that is good for a cat to eat but it shouldn’t be an emergency quite yet. My cat ate the red string also years ago and I thought about taking him to the vet. Instead though, I waited it out and checked to see if he got it out of his system. I was monitoring his litter box you can say. One day I saw the red string. My cat did not have any stomach problems. I would just check to make sure your cat gets it out the system and if she doesn’t take her immediately to the vet.
My cat got a red balloon and string by mistake and I get home on Monday I was worried and panicking so I took to a Google search which only made it worse. All I read was that they could get an intestinal blockage I should take her to the vet this could be deadly let me just tell you cats are resilient sit back and wait make sure she’s eating drinking and using the restroom and then no signs of acute distress. I’m on the darker poop for the next several days and on Thursday morning there it was in her poop it had come out whole. One thing I did read it if it came out and stayed stuck in her but do not pull it just cut the pieces sticking out and let her continue to pass it herself no need to panic give it a few days monitor your cat if they show any signs of distress then take him to the vet but my cat had no problems and pooped it out just fine.
a couple years ago my cat stole a 3 foot pink string from my desk and ate it. I didn’t know till I saw a pink and brown cat turd in the litter box. I wound think if mine ate 3 foot and is ok, your will be ok with only 4 inches.
No, this is not good. My brother cat Mac ate a string from a balloon and got stomach problems. You should take your cat to the vet right now!
I just pulled a broken red bologna string out of my cats butt….it was hanging from her butt … she screamed when I pulled it out ….but before I pulled it out she had a lot of feces stuck to her butt…I didn’t actually see the string until she cleaned most of it off herself ..she would not let me clean her …so I waited until she cleaned it …at first I thought it was a long worm …I thought she had worms …anyway I pulled it out .. and she went back outside ….I believe she will be fine .. suggestion …I’m getting a top for my trash can …I don’t want her or me to go thru that again …smelly cat …lol
