Yarn May Not be the Best Toy for Cats
Contrary to popular belief not to mention the way some cats are portrayed in cartoons in comic strips, cat should not be playing with yarn. Why? Yarn can actually be dangerous for cats. If your cat likes to play with yarn, please make sure that your cat is supervised the entire time he has the yarn. Yarn can be fun for cats to play with. They love to wrap it around their paws and claw at it with their nails. Yarn, however, can be dangerous. A cat can easily wrap it around its neck and choke himself. If a cat swallows the yarn then there’s the possibility that it could get caught in their throat or in their intestines. Yarn or string caught in the stomach or intestines requires surgery in most cases. Please talk to your vet Anderson, IN first before giving your cat yarn to play with.
