Hello,

Thanks for your question. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Do you mean if a cat eats it, or licks Scotch tape? Did your cat eat any?

It is not toxic, but if a lot was eaten, it could cause a blockage in the stomach or intestines. Is your cat acting sick at all?

He ate it he is acting a tad odd he's been laying in the se spot can't tell about breathing I don't know how to tell for a little while his tail is twitching really fast
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Breathing fine as far as I can tell though

How big a piece did he eat? How long ago?

If he ate enough to cause a blockage I would expect him to be not eating, and to be vomiting.

How is he dong? What else can I help with or answer?
