Oh no

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Last night was the first night I let the cats roam the house when we went to bed. We had chicken for dinner, rotisserie, and I put the bones in the garbage after dinner. This morning I saw that someone got in to the garbage and pulled the bones out and ate parts of them I know it can kill dogs because chicken bones splinter, so is it the same for cats? I feel terrible! Im so worried that while Im at work, one of them is dying from the chicken bone I have a lid on my can, so Im not even sure how they got in there or who did it! I feel really rotten that Ive only had them about a week and Ive already screwed up.

Just Keep an eye on them and at the slightest sign of distress call the Vet. I am sure they'll be fine!!

Cats eat birds in the wild and are better able to digest bones than dogs. Dogs also seem to gulp their food so it isn't chewed very well. Keep a close eye on the kitties and if they are eliminating normally it should be OK. If they have problems it will be in the next two days.

While I'm sure they'll be OK, I just learned that when chicken bone is cooked, it causes them to splinter.

Just wanted to let you know.

How are they acting right now?
