  • just the filter? as long as she didn't choke on it I think she'd be fine. Might be interesting coming out though.

  • Yeah I agree with Cassie. If it hurts her stomach, she will throw up. It will probably pass without incident.

    Once my cat ate yarn. I mean like feet of yarn and she passed it with no problem.

  • OP~ lol yes my cat will eat anything and everything lol, she's such a little brat... and yes it was just a filter cut from the smoke. Thx everyone I was kinda worried, I saw her playing with it and thought "what the hell" then I watched her swallow it, I didnt think she was that stupid but I guess she is lol, I love her though!

  • My ex mother in law's dog used to eat vaseline and makeup but never got sick until he ate a few pot stems. You'll just have to wait and see what happens. It'll eventually pass.
