Hello! Welcome to JustAnswer.

ResidentVet :

How is your cat feeling?

ResidentVet :

Is it common for your cat to eat corn husks?

ResidentVet :

TO answer your question. There are no reported toxicities associated with Corn Husk ingestion in cats. It is very unlikely that the husk itself causes a problem, but there are certain molds that can affect corn that may be an issue.

ResidentVet :

If you cat isn't feeling well and has eaten corn husks I would be concerned that there is another problem going on

ResidentVet :

I can't see what you have typed, but I received an email saying you responded to me.

ResidentVet :

Hold on for a second, please while I try to fix this

So far there are no promlems

Okay, I guess the system doesn't want to let us chat.

I wouldn't worry about the corn husks unless they have been wet and moldy (most cats wouldn't eat such nasty things).

If you cat starts getting ill, I would guess it was from something other than the corn husk unless he/she ate so many of them that they obstructed his stomach (probably not very likely)

Let me know if you have any other questions.
