I get to empty the litter box twice daily, and take care of the monthly deep cleaning of the litter boxes.
She gets to clean up the hairballs and other items that randomly come out the front end. The other day Rose got sick. As Laura was cleaning it up she noticed something weird about the vomit - it was unusual. There was something long and stringy in it. We both immediately thought of worms. Further investigation revealed Rose had apparently eaten 6-10 inches of the multi-colored fleece string wand toy. Thankfully she got sick.
Rose playing with the multi-colored fleece string wand toy
None of the other cats have ever chewed through a toy and eaten a big chunk of it, so we never thought it would be a problem to leave the fleece toy down. Now, the fleece string wand toy has a home inaccessible to the kitties. I am so grateful she barfed it up and she didn't need to be cut open for the third time in as many months.
