Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cat ate shoe string

Bandit the 10-month-old domestic short hair is apparently still enjoying his curious kitten phase, because he recently played with and swallowed a shoe string. This resulted in his first big veterinary visit and overnight stay.

Bandit’s veterinarian took radiographs to assess the situation, and determined that surgery would be required. After the string was surgically removed, Bandit was given medication and kept at the hospital overnight for monitoring and recovery.

We hope he has a quick recovery so he can get back to enjoying kittenhood!
