Thanks for your question. My name is***** 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?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

He ate it he is acting a tad odd. He's been laying in the same spot. Breathing fine as far as I can tell though. For a little while his tail is twitching really fast.

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.
