So sorry about your kitty - hope she'll be alright. Easter grass is very dangerous. Thank you for warning everyone about it.

Sending good thoughts and best wishes to your kitty for a quick recovery.

Thanks for the warning. I knew that Easter "grass" is nothing more then teh same tinsle that you put on the Christmas tree but in a different color. Both can be deadly to cats if they eat it.

That's why I refuse to let easter grass or tinsel in my house!!!

I hope your kitty makes it through all right!

Keep us updated!

The plastic easter grass is icky, gets everywhere and blows out of kids baskets when they're outside. Unintentional littering, but still littering.

Next year use the paper kind or better yet, real grass.

Awww, I hope she will be OK. Essentially anything string like could be deadly to cats. As mentioned Easter grass, tinsel, but beware of ribbon used on balloons and Christmas presents also. I have to be careful with the cellophane pull string off my cigarettes because Popsie loves to eat those. I found one hanging out his rear one day!!! Luckily it came out.

Maybe you should consider quitting the smoking for your cat's health????

I know someone whose cat ate curly ribbon, and had to have surgery to remove it from the intestine. This type of thing can't be digested and sometimes won't pass through the intestine. Luckily the kitty survived, but you have to be very careful about anything like that lying around the house.
