• My cat ate a piece of cloth yesterday and she has not pooped. She is behaving normal, eating, and basically herself. Should I be worried?

    Hi Isaac,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this issue. Eating cloth can lead to GI obstruction or injury and the risk of this will depend on the type and amount of cloth that she ate. Your vet can talk to you more about this after they get some more information from you. If you see any signs like vomiting, lethargy, not wanting to eat or any change in behavior she should be seen by a vet as soon as possible.

Need more information or advice?
