What Happened After Cat Swallowed String – Trupanion Pet Insurance

Meet Morgan, the 1-year-old kitty. “He is a very frisky kitten – able to jump up and open bedroom and bathroom doors by jumping up and pulling down handles to enter, whether he is welcome or not! This may happen when Mom is in the shower or fast asleep,” said his owner Nancy.

Well, this frisky kitty recently swallowed a string which resulted in a trip to the veterinary clinic. His veterinarian took a few X-rays and determined that surgery was needed.

Morgan is feeling well since surgery but is left with a bare belly and a big scar. His sister kitty even hissed at him for a few days after his return home, possibly because she didn’t recognize the new haircut!

Total claim amount: $1,505.07
Deductible applied: -$250.00
