My poor little Raphel who eats everything ate a twist tie. I took her to the emergency pet hospital where they did an x-ray. Yup, the twist tie was there. So my choices were 1) they could give her something to make her puke; or 2) hope it passes through her body without causing damage. I chose 1) puking. So that is what they did and she puked and the twist tie came out. Now we are back home and she is sleeping on my lap. I feel awful about it but sure am happy the twist tie came out.
