These are great - I started making them for a dog rescue but found that one of my cats just loves them.   I tried to make one that was cat-sized for her but she prefers the heavier dog ones.  She loves to  toss it in the air about six feet and "catch" it.

Unfortunately I had a similar experience.  My 3yr old siamese became lethargic and febrile.  She was anorexic as well.  I do a lot of craft work for animal rescues.  From my past work experience as a surgical nurse, I suspected a foreign body and fortunately had the appropriate medications on hand to start treatment.  (My other siamese cat had IBD)  It was a weekend of course.  I got a hold of my vet who met me at the hospital first thing Monday morning.  My gut feeling was right.  You could see a string holding chunks of BM in a beaded fashion.  Barium and serial x-rays later showed some movement.  It was "iffy" that medical treatment alone would work.  Fortunately it did and 20 inches of eyelash yarn was expelled at home.  The stench was remarkable.  I was so happy to see this come out without surgery.  She went to the litter box as I went for some kleenex.  When she came out I just gave a very gentle pull.   If you ever have this happen make sure if there is any resistance at all - STOP or you risk perforating an already inflamed intestine. 

Her misadventure ended up costing a total of $750 for a small piece of a ball that I got originally at the dollar store.
