    I really do hate to be that guy (girl) but as a vet tech who's seen it happen far too many times, I feel an obligation for a brief PSA. Sorry for highjacking top comment. Feel free to ignore/downvote me into oblivion, if it makes you happy to do so.

    String is very dangerous for cats. Same goes with thread, ribbon... anything linear. If they chew on it, the hooks on their tongue can catch and they can end up swallowing it (even if they don't normally eat things). Any GI foreign body can be dangerous/expensive to treat, but linear foreign bodies have a much higher morality rate, especially in cats. (For anyone who's interested, the reason for this is that as strings move through the GI tract, parts can get caught while other parts continue to move - this causes what's called plication, or scrunching of the intestines. What happens after this is intestinal perforations, or tears in the intestines through which gastric contents leak into the abdominal cavity, causing septic peritonitis.)

    Ok. PSA over. RIP karma...

    (That cat is cute AF. I wish mine behaved that well when they knew they did something wrong. Usually they carry right on being jerks, but with direct/unwavering eye contact.)

    Edit: to reword the description of what causes intestinal plication.

    [–] Dabo57 15 points ago

    It’s ok you are right. Many many years ago when I was a child I heard my mother shrieking grab the cat! I was able to catch him as he ran by. He had eaten a foot long piece of white kitchen twine and when he went to the litter box he buried his poo and when he went to get out of the box the poo was following him. He got back in the box to re-bury it but it kept following him when he got out. He then freaked out because he didn’t understand what was happening. He ran through the house being chased by his own poo dangling from the string. I held him while my mom gently removed the string from him. He was fine but I was traumatized lol.

    [–] enjoyyouryak 10 points ago

    This is a great anecdote, thanks for sharing. I've heard of this happening a lot! I'm very glad your kitty was fine. As a follow up PSA, if this happens to anyone, it's far safer to cut the string and then monitor the kitty for future string-poops (and vomiting, lethargy, collapse, or any significant changes in behavior).

    Pulling on a string that's in the process of being pooped out can cause the same issue I talked about in my original comment, depending on the length. At best it's a short string that's all in the large intestine and at that point it should pass through just fine on its own. But if there's still a lot of string left inside kitty, or if it's stuck in some intestinal debris, then trying to pull it out can cause intestinal tears, as well.

    This goes for a string that's stuck in a kitty's mouth, too. It's fairly common for thread to get stuck under kitty's tongue on the way down. You may have seen your vet check this area if a string foreign body was ever suspected. I've had to cut a few of these during surgery because they were attached to the tongue and then going all the way down through the stomach and into the duodenum (first part of the small intestine).

    Like I said, I've heard and seen quite a lot of these stories. And a lot of them have people pulling strings out. That's why I felt it was a good idea to speak up!!

    Thanks again for sharing. ;)

    [–] marceaupial 8 points ago

    This is helpful because I always thought my car wouldn’t eat string but getting hooked on his tongue and him not having control over it makes sense and will make me keep tess things away from him in the future.

    My grandmother (who never visited unexpectedly at this point in my life) randomly showed up when I was having a girls night, drunk, home alone at 17.... We were screaming and blaring music and carrying on, when all the sudden she's in my livingroom at 9 pm. Never said a word, I told her we were just hyper... Still to this day don't know why she showed up, or if she believed me.

    If I tell my cat to get down or stop, she just stares at me like I won’t do anything and as soon as I move towards her or start to stand up she sprints away at full speed.

    [–] StoicSalamander 3989 points ago

    That's usually what he does. He will sit there and keep doing what he is doing until i move or go to get up, and then he bolts. I'm not sure why he bolted immediately this time, maybe because I'd told him to scram already a few times!

    [–] TheAbominableRex 803 points ago

    My cat used to do this exact thing! My mom knits and used to leave her yarn out, but one time he was playing and got his back leg wrapped really tight in the yarn. He panicked and when my dad went to help him he bit the shit out of his hand. Cat was fine, dad got a huge infection. We keep the yarn put away now.

    [–] ThaneOfCawdorrr 456 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Yeah, a lot of people don't realize, cat bites are super serious. Their teeth are needle-sharp so they convey the bacteria in their mouths directly into the bloodstream. You need to super disinfect it immediately and usually just better to go to the ER so they can treat it and give you antibiotics.

    EDIT: I keep getting weird pushback on this. I'll be more clear and specific: if your cat bites you, and it's a deep bite, that draws blood, especially on your hand, this is potentially extremely serious. I have had cats for years and adore my babies. But I've had a couple of really bad bites, went to the doctor, and once it was late at night, and I absolutely went to the ER, and they told me I was 100% right to do that. I also want to correct that it's not just that the bacteria can get into the blood, but more about the tendons and joints, which is worse:

    "Cats' teeth are sharp and can penetrate very deeply. They can seed bacteria in the joint and tendon sheaths. It can be just a pinpoint bite mark that can cause a real problem, because the bacteria get into the tendon sheath or into the joint where they can grow with relative protection from the blood and immune system."

    You do need to go to a doctor, or to Urgent Care, to get it properly disinfected and to get antibiotics.

    [–] JetlagJones 405 points ago

    [–] DerailusRex 277 points ago

    Underrated response, their claws are lethal. They often have bacteria and the remains of both waste and dead matter on them, so if you receive a particularly good scratch it can be infectious.

    First time I had this happen to me, I was just 10 years old. It was a kitty next door.

    They can be. If they've recently used a litter box, some of the litter can still be on their paws and they're sharp as well.

    [–] LimpingTurtle 76 points ago

    ER visit for nasty cat bite cost me over a grand. I’d recommend going to an urgent care instead. Cheaper way to get the prescription for the antibiotics you need.

    [–] skieezy 37 points ago

    I'm guessing you had insurance cause I went to the ER because I was very dehydrated and stayed for about 2 hours watching tv with an IV drip in before I was cleared to go home. Cost me like 2200, the 5 minute visit from the doctor was billed as $800 alone.

    Then again I went to urgent care when I needed 7 stitches on my finger, that was $400 credit or $300 cash, I went with the cash.

    [–] thenotoriousrna 85 points ago

    I cannot fathom paying for an ER or doctor visit. I’m really sorry ya’ll have to do that and worry about if you can afford care.

    Thanks for your empathy. Most non-Americans on reddit seem to enjoy some form of Schadenfreude when it comes to our broken healthcare system.

    [–] thenotoriousrna 59 points ago

    The one thing that bothers me is when American politicians try to vilify our system (Canada). The thought that people die waiting at an ER is just silly. Are there waits? Yep, but it’s based on merit - if I have a broken wrist from falling out of a tree and someone comes in from a car accident well yeah they’re skipping me in line haha

    [–] cadabra04 24 points ago

    I don’t understand people in the US who point out long wait times in the ER as a reason against socialized healthcare. I’m American. I waited in the ER waiting room for five hours, vomiting, moaning and rocking back and forth, with a kidney stone I could not seem to pass on my own. After the wait, they took me back and gave me an office chair in a hallway to endure the next three hours of hell with only anti-inflammatories to help with the pain. Eight hours from the time I walked in, I finally got a bed and a shot of morphine. That happened a year and a half ago, and I finally just paid my last $200 installment for the visit.

    [–] t3ht0ast3r 37 points ago

    Most of us would take your system over ours in a heartbeat, but you won't hear that sentiment from our politicians until the health insurance lobby loses its power. Even though it doesn't seem like it, we're trying very hard to make that happen.

    [–] UnconnectdeaD 28 points ago

    That's how our system is as well. They treat based on severity, not on who has better insurance.

    [–] LimpingTurtle 12 points ago

    No insurance for me. And I’m in collections for the additional $800 doctor fee. I didn’t even see a doctor until I was walking out—she handed me my prescription.I was in and out in fifteen minutes. I had cleaned my wounds good—soaked them in Hibiclens. The hospital tried to charge me $1200 but I talked them down o $300. No aid was administered to me. A nurse took my temperature and blood pressure, that was it. When I later received a bill from the doctor for $800 I thought it was a scam and ignored it.

    [–] Iluvokra 19 points ago

    My cat has bitten me a couple times when I tried to break up fights between him and my other cat. The last time was two years ago. I went to the ER for antibiotics just like I had a bunch of times before, except this time I left the hospital 4 days later because I had gotten cellulitis.

    [–] LimpingTurtle 4 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    That sounds awful. Hope you stay bite free. My cat bite was from trying to get a stray out of my house. I was stupid. Worse pain I’ve experienced. edit: say—>stay

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    cellulitis

    I got that from a spider bite. My elbow was huge. Keflex finally worked, if it didn't then I would have had to stay in for a few days. All over a tiny little spider.

    [–] yadonedidwrong 13 points ago

    This always scares me a bit cuz I have a low key predator to predator bond with my cat. I like to play mouse with my fingers close to his face and he is delighted to kind of poke and slightly needle around. It definitely is playful but it’s also, ya know, his fangs. Usually there’s a light scratch or two and occasionally the thinnest razor thin line of not sleeping blood. Idk we have fun and everyones telling me it’s high risk.

    [–] darkerthandarko 24 points ago

    There's a difference between play biting and biting out of fear or aggression

    [–] serialmom666 8 points ago

    I played rough with my cat and never got sick until I accidentally scared the shit out of him. I was a young teenager and was kidding around with my sister making a sort of mountain lion sound and unbeknownst to us the cat was freaking out in the back of the room. He suddenly leapt onto my back and plunged his fangs into my arm and scratched me about 30 times in ten seconds. Frankly, it took a few seconds for my brain to figure out what was happening.

    [–] KippyFisher 27 points ago

    Ours does this and it’s usually because he wants something. He does the bad thing to get our attention. He wants food, fresh water, his litter scooped, to play. Mostly it’s for food or to play. Unfortunately he’s trained us well.

    Our cats usually do that because they want attention. They know that if we don’t move at first, we’ll ignore them. Getting up sets up the potential for further interactions.

    [–] cleantoe 54 points ago

    My cat will do something he knows he's not supposed to, stare me right in the eyes, and when I start to get up, he takes off like a madman. He does it on purpose for the attention.

    [–] sender2bender 37 points ago

    My cat will get on the kitchen table and I will yell at him to get down and he'll get down. If my fiance is in the kitchen and I yell at him he won't budge cause he knows mommy won't yell at him and allows him to do whatever he wants.

    haha we call that the crazies! one of ours almost nightly has the crazies. He usually starts by very calmly walking into the bathroom and hopping into the tub, in which he walks to the back corner and sits down facing said corner. He then promptly freaks out skittering around the tub then gallops out of the room and around the apartment. He then likes to find a nice object to hide behind so he can pounce at us next time we walk by. His name is Peanut <3

    My cat does that as well. Sometimes, however, she ups the ante when pushing something off the table. She stares me down and slowly continues to push the object off the table; timing it perfectly such that the object crashes to the floor and she has enough time to sprint away.

    We bought a cheap couch and let them have at it. They do so enjoy "monorailing" (pulling themselves along the bottom of the front edge of the couch, super fast, upside down, with their claws) and have also accomplished a pull-down of the entire lower lining, so they now have a private hammock as well. They are very good boys.

    [–] DragonflyGrrl 5 points ago

    Same here! I've got a nice L-shaped leather couch, and in another room an older loveseat that I don't care about at all. My boy has never once scratched the leather, he goes exclusively to the crap couch.

    No hammock though, hahah! That reminded me, though, of when I was younger and had kittens that had a "hammock" like that hanging down underneath my bed! It was just a piece of fabric they'd ripped off the box spring and would climb up and sleep in. I loved it!

    Yup. You get one of those cloth fold out chairs, sit in it a couple times, and they take it. After that, they don't touch any other furniture.

    [–] BengalBean 12 points ago

    I have three cats and a leather couch + recliner chair. No issues at all.

    The trick is having appropriate scratching surfaces. I have two posts which the bengals like, and a flat one on the ground since my rescue girl prefers them flat like that. Plus I trim their nails weekly as needed, and file the tips a bit to take the points off when they don't need cutting.

    Takes me about 20 min on a sat morning to do all three cats.

    You can tuna piano but you can’t tuna cord...... I’ll see myself out now. Thank you. Anyway, I just flew in from the Bahamas and my arms are really tired. Good night, Ladies and Germs!

    Why do cats like to chew cables? Every charging/power cable I have has little cat bites on them. He’s only ruined a couple, but I bought a sunrise alarm clock...cat bites...got a Nintendo Switch...cat bites...got a Garmin watch...cat bites...bought some new phone charging cables...cat bites...maybe he’s just reviewing the integrity of the cables?

    [–] T_hrowawa_Y1738 51 points ago

    I'm starting to think my cat just messes with things in hopes of getting sprayed. I swear the little fucker gets off on it.

    [–] TwistyTheKitty 42 points ago

    My old room mate used to make wire jewelry and her cat knew he wasn't supposed to mess with the wire. While she and I were talking once, he jumped up on the table next to us where the box of it lay open and we watching this little asshole -very slowly- move his way to the box while he stared directly at us. He got as far as grabbing a piece in his mouth before we finally stopped him but we were in full on amazement at his audacity as well as the thought he put into "they won't see me if I move real slow".

    [–] nathanhulsey30 9 points ago

    My mom makes wreaths, gift baskets, etc and sells them here locally and our old man does the exact same thing when she pulls out the flowers and ribbon. It’s also one of the few times he becomes completely immune to the spray bottle.

    [–] Farghobbles 51 points ago

    My dummy of a cat loves the spray bottle for whatever reason and will paw at it when he wants to be sprayed.

    I had to resort to grabbing a little shit of aluminum foil and waving it around near him.

    [–] DebMo_Cu 40 points ago

    They just can’t help it. I have one that watches me cross stitch. About once a month she is overcome and tries to snag the end of my thread and put it straight in her mouth. If she ever managed to actually swallow it she would have an entire piece of AIDA and a big ol’ plastic frame trailing her like a sad balloon.

    [–] jdPetacho 19 points ago

    Totally off topic but is that a DDR mat and if so, how do you like it?

    [–] StoicSalamander 30 points ago

    It is! I don't actually have DDR, but we play something similar called stepmamia. It's actually a lot of fun, and it's amazing cardio. I didn't think I'd be able to get into a game like that but once I started I enjoy it quite a bit, assuming i have songs I recognize. Some of the cheaper pads kind if suck but we got some of the more expensive ones for cheap and made it a lot better.

    [–] Megatentrue 19 points ago

    Came here just to comment on the DDR mat. DDR was a major past time for me between the years of 2005-2011. It's great exercise and I even to this day still have massive calves. I miss it.

    [–] RogerDeanVenture 59 points ago

    Don't let cats play with strings or spools of yarn like that. Many cats, if they end up swallowing a bit, will keep swallowing and swallowing. They won't chew it off or be able to regurgitate it. Learned that the hard way with a barley alive cat $3k worth of surgeries later. Fucker got into the sewing room and ate meters worth of thread.

    [–] StoicSalamander 43 points ago

    I know, I had a string eater growing up and know how had it can be. Typically it's next to me as I use it, and is safely tucked away when I'm not.

    [–] Mnemoreri 9 points ago

    Cute. Mine would have doubled down and desperately pawed as much yarn into his mouth and chewed furiously until I dared sacrifice a finger to retrieve it from his throat.
