He was chewing on my mechanical pencil and bit the lead off

Customer Question

He was chewing on my mechanical pencil and bit the lead off of it. I don't know if he swallowed it but if he did, is it harmful?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Roo, he's about a year and a half
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Roo?
Customer: No he's a healthy cat

Hi! I'mCustomerand I can help with your question.

Are you available for me to ask a few preliminary questions?

Expert:  CalCatDoc replied 2 months ago.

Do you have the package that the pencil lead came in so I can look up the manufacturer and product? I think they are robably pretty generic but I need to make sure.
