Toy Warning!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm currently fostering a feral momma and her five babies, who are 5 weeks old today. Last night, when I came home from work, I heard one of the babies screaming! I checked on them, and absolutely panicked when I realized that Pieris had gotten his head caught in a toy called "Cheese Chase" (below is a link to a picture of the toy):


Did I say "caught", I mean wedged...stuck...jammed!!! My heart was pounding, because it seemed impossible to get it out. I grabbed him and the toy, and went to the phone & called a friend who calmed me down, so I could calm him down. After much manipulation, I was able to free him, but it wasn't easy! So if you have kittens, do not give them this toy. If you already have this toy, take it away from them until they're much, much bigger than mine are!

I never had this problem with this toy before with my other foster kits, but they were older...over two months. Personally, I won't let a kitten have that toy again until they're at least 3 months.

Just thought I'd let y'all know. I feel like I dodged a bullet. I don't think he was stuck overly long (he still had alot of fight in him, and he recovered after about 10 minutes), but I worked a 12 hour shift, and I can't even think about what would have happened if this had occurred earlier in the day! *shudder*

I have had that toy for a long time and never had the problem with it- the kittens love it! Sounds like yours got a bit to curious- good thing you were around to rescue him!

I had a kitten get himself into the furnace before (in the summer thankfully). Now that was terrible! I still have no idea how it happened, but if they can get stuck in something, they will certainly try to.

I've rescued so many kittens caught in fences, etc. They're just too curious for their own good.

My, what a SCARE!!! THANK GOODNESS that you were at home!!! {{{shudder}}} The toy looks like so much fun, but I will certainly pass on the warning to my grandson about that toy ( I think that his father bought it for his new kitten, Snowy). You might try notifying the stores about your close call, too. Thank you for spreading the warning!! I will try to let others know, too!

it's not just toys... Cable got her head stuck in a tissue box, one of the cubical kind when she was smaller. i liked to have never caught her to get her head out - she wasn't yelling, just running to beat the band! i'm glad you were there when it happened.
