We woke up this morning to find our cat Bailey had pulled some plastic coated elastic string out of the garbage can. It is the worst kind of string for a cat to eat because of it's stretchiness and flakable coating. Bailey ate a bunch of it too. We took him right to the vet where an xray revealed our worst fears. We are taking him to birmingham here in a minute to see if they can perform arthoscopic surgery and maybe save him.
