is it just the feather he ate or was there toy attached? was it real or synthetic? just some things i would think about in determining its digestability. i would watch him carefully, to make sure nothing gets stuck while it is ummm passing.
hope he's okay!
I bought it at pestmart, it's very soft and silky, it could be synthetic, it was 4 inches long but very thin and there was nothing attached to it. I already called the vet's office but she hasn't returned my call.
I talked to my vet and she said it should pass, just keep an eye if he vomits, not eating and straining when he goes, then it's different, i figure it should be okay since they catch birds and eat feathers, i hope for the best, thanks guys
He poop early this morning while i was still asleep, the poop was normal but i couldn't find any sign of the feather, he acts fine otherwise, eating, drinking and playing, what happened to the feather?, this cat's diet is raw food, could he had digested the feather?
What I'd worry about it the central "stem," which is probably not going to be digested. It can be awfully pointy... I envision it puncturing something inside. Laxatone is a good idea, and I'd avoid dry food until the feather passes.
I'd watch your baby very closely and take him to the vet at the very first sign of ANY discomfort.
