Felix, Felix, Felix......Sigh

Ahhhh.  A big sigh of relief.  Felix greeted me this morning and demanded to be fed.  And he ate up his biscuits.  Later in the evening, I let them out to play and he was bouncing off the walls!  And he ate up his dinner as well.

Felix back to his usual playful self
After his dinner, he went to potty and I watched closely to see what he would produce.  I had a mini heart attack when I saw his poo was red!  And he was straining and straining and the red poo just kept getting longer.  So I grabbed some paper to pull at the poo and whoooopp....out it came.  And a big relief on Felix's face.  A closer inspection of the red poo finally answered all the questions.  I have pictures of what came out but I think I'll keep those to myself.  MOL. 
This is a similar string to what came out of Felix's rear end.....
Here's what I think happened.  As Felix was teething, I think he found comfort chewing on the string that I allow them to play with under supervision.  I must have missed him chewing (and swallowing!) the string last week which resulted in him vomitting and losing his appetite.  Thank goodness the string managed to pass out without any problem (although almost a week later!) and he's back to his usual self today.

Needless to say, no more playing with strings and we'll stick with scrunched up paper for now.....

Felix LOVES scrunched up paper
 
Aren't kittens so easy to please?

Hi! Oh my! We saw you came to visit us so we had to meet you! Hope your tummy issues are behind you now and that you don't find any other non-food items to ingest!

Oh Felix. So glad you were able to get rid of the string without more than a few days of tummy aches.

You must be careful what you eat.

I am a testiment to that, I just never figured a kitty would ever have the same problem.

There is Food and there is FOOD.

Be careful....

Oh wow! We're glad everything came out okay in the end for Felix (heehee!). Otherwise, that woulda been scary!! Zoey likes to eat string too...and other stuff. One time she ate 12 inches of string. Fortunately, it came out too. Recently, she ate the fuzzy tails off of a couple of toys. 4 inches worth of fuzzy tails...2 of them! Mom was so scared it would get all caught up in Zoey. But it didn't...it came out too.

We're so glad the string came out and didn't get stuck inside of Felix! How scary! We agree that paper is probably a much better toy for him!
