    My daughters cat got a hold of one of my spools of thread and Im pretty certain it must of eaten some of it. He is throwing up clear liquid and is not acting his usual spunky self. Anyone ever have this happen to their cat??

    Yep your cat needs to go to the vet.
    I just learned this past year after having cats for 15 that string and what not is very dangerous for them.
    We ended up losing our cat - we originally though he had gotten some string lodged in his mouth/throat. Turned out to be cancer :( but we learned a lot and now are very careful with our (female) kitty when we play with her and anything involving string.

    I don't know why cats love to eat thread. I have to really watch mine. They are also bad about eating the silver icicles off the Christmas tree; had to stop using those several years ago.

    But when they eat icicles from the tree their poo is so sparkly!

    :lol:

    Hope your thread eating kitty is ok. My cat's favorite spot to be with me is beneath the sewing machine. Luckily she doesn't nibble on threads.

    I feel bad for Matrix..that is the cat's name. I think My Daughter and Son In Law are weighing the options because vet is saying going to be expensive. :(

    I feel bad for Matrix too :-[

    It will no doubt be very expensive. Removal of 13" of red cord from our old Manx Butch Cassidy (GA) in the early 1990s was over $400.

    Sending prayers for a good outcome!!!

    Matrix is currently at the vet ... the vet could see the thread under his tongue.. going to sedate him and try to gently pull it out... if it wont come then will have to decide if we are going to go with surgery..they are estimating 1200 and up :( Im praying also...my daughter is in tears.. we will know something within the next hour. Thank you for the Kitty prayers :)

    Oh my goodness! I hope the vet can pull it out gently so Matrix can go home with his family. I'm sure your daughter will make sure he won't be able to get at thread ever again!

    Wishing them much luck. :thumbup:
