My cat's favorite toy seems to be those crackle balls (which is great, because they're REALLY cheap), the ones that crackle and crinkle. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to make it into a toy that I could play with him with... so I looked for string to tie around it. I couldn't find any, so I settled for dental floss. I was running, dragging it all around the house and he was chasing it like crazy. The phone rang so I dropped the toy and went to answer the phone... and when I came back, I saw him with not even a foot of the floss hanging out of his mouth and then the ball. The floss was about 3 feet long to begin with. At first I thought, "Is the rest of the floss all just in his mouth?" So I looked into his mouth to find that he was actually swallowing it!!! I pulled on what was left of the string... and it all came up (he didn't gag or meow in pain, which I was expecting). It makes me wonder though what kind of weird things cats eat.
