Q: My 8-year-old Maine Coon cat ate part of a rope attached to a cat toy wand. The rope is made of three twisted parts that he loved to bite. I had no idea about the risk. Today I discovered a long piece of the rope in his bowel movement (about 5 or 6 inches long). I’m very concerned. His behavior seems normal, however, a few days ago he threw up a large amount of liquid but not since. Do I need to take him to a veterinarian to follow up his eating a piece of rope? Thank you for your advice.
