My cat just swallowed a straight pin - what are the chances

Resolved Question:

My cat just swallowed a straight pin - what are the chances of it passing through without a problem?

Chances are not great that it will pass through his system without causing a problem. It could get stuck in any part of his digestive/intestinal system, and cause serious injury. He really needs to be evaluated by a vet, immediately. They'll need to do an x-ray to find the exact location of the pin, and take it from there.

I hope your little furry boy will be fine, and would you please let me know how he's doing? Thanks!
