Earlier tonight, I was...

Earlier tonight, I was cutting 1/8" wide/6" long strips off of some card stock. I didn't notice one was on floor, and my cat got it and ate it before I could stop him. He's eaten a few times, and hasn't vomited. Keeping a close eye on him for now.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your cat will be able to digest that. What is your cat's name and age?

Buddy, he's 9.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Buddy?

He's done this type of thing before. One time he ate curling ribbon off of a gift. I didn't see him eat it, but he threw it up.

I am here.

Hello there

I am happy to say that we should be able to push that paper through

You can add one teaspoon of canned pumpkin to each meal for the next few days

That will bulk up the poops ans push things along

Okay?
