When I came home from class tonight, I found the skeleton of my cat's toy mouse (plastic piece with its head attached). I found a felt ear in my bedroom, but the rest of the toy remains unfound. I think my kitty may've eaten part of her cat toy, but I'm not sure. This would have been the fur covering the toy. I can't believe that she would eat it whole, but I can't find it anywhere. She seems perfectly fine - I gave her a snack, and she ate it - no vomiting or anything. This sounds like a dumb question, but if she had eaten it, wouldn't she show signs of digestive upset? I don't want to run her to the vet if there is no way to know that she ate the toy. She doesn't have one in the city - he's an hour away. I can prolly reach him if neccessary, but I don't know if I'm making too big a deal of this?? I mean, there are many places she could've hid the toy. If she did eat it, what could a vet do? Wouldn't it be too late at this point? I have heard of animals swallowing strange objects, and they just come out the other end. I guess I'm just cautious because I've never had this happen, and I'm hoping some other pet owners maybe had something like this happen with their animal...
