The owners of a 9 pound cat took it in for a regular checkup in Ohio. That’s when the veterinarian noticed an enlarged stomach. Despite the cat not behaving differently, the veterinarian noticed this abnormality and investigated.
That’s when the vet discovered that the 9 pound cat had swallowed up to 36 hair bands, weighing 1.4 of a pound. An operation helped removed these hair bands and now the cat is just fine, although it was feeling fine even after walking around with so many hair bands in its stomach.
If your cat appears normal,, chances are it’s not. For most cats, being abnormal means behavior issues but for this Ohio cat, being abnormal meant having a stomach full of hair bands that it ate for no apparent reason.
