my cat swallowed about a foot or 2 of thread and i didnt know, but it was still on the spool so the lttle bugger couldnt eat it all. luckly i pulled it all out w/o having to go to the vet! now he just eats any fly that happens to come in through an open door...

my cat ate some thread when she was little, the vet told me by phone to gently pull what I could out, then cut it and wait.

the gross part was it took 3 days to digest and work all of its out of her body, and had to be cut as each section 'came out' because she kept trying to 'eat it' again even though it was still attached. (disturbing picture, I know). I was so worried she would pull on her organs or something.

so gross!

What IS it with cats and thread?  My cat eats thread, embroidery floss, string, that fake grass you put in Easter baskets, thinly shredded paper...anything that looks stringlike! 

I'm glad your cat is okay, and I'm sad for the others that aren't.  Good luck to everyone keeping your pets safe from crafting!

Wow, I should really put those little bits of thread away when I take my rats out... speaking of which, I accidently put them on the table when I had a box of needles on it... well, of of them tried to eat a pin!  Shocked Luckily, I caught him in time.

OMG, this very morning I woke up and noticed I'd left a huge ball of DMC on the floor and was really glad my cat (who is INCREDIBLY stupid and will eat literally anything) didn't get ahold of it.. I'll have to be way more careful in the future :S   Thanks for the warning!
