Anonymous:Hi please help me urgently! About two hours ago my cat ate a piece of a wooden toothpick sized approximately 0.7cm! He's sleeping now and I'm panicking! Should I wait till it goes out itself? Should I give him a laxative? Should I feed him at all? Please I really need your help!!
I've heard that mashed potatoes (without salt) smeared with mineral oil should ease and speed up pooping but, to be honest, I've never tried it. I believe your cat will be all right.
you have to read down on this one. It talks about possible causes of excessive drooling but gets into what can happen if it swallowed dental floss or a toothpick:
And there's a lot more but you get the picture.
In any case, a visit to a vet won't harm if you want to make sure your cat will be okay. But do not panic please. Although there may be such a possibility, it won't necessarily be a life threatening case. Just my opinion.
Anonymous:OMG! Thanks all! He's been ok but I'll take to a vet today! Otherwise I can't sleep well!
People are waiting to help.
