    She woke us up around 2:30 this morning whimpering and she had just gotten sick. There in the middle of her spit up was a ball of string from where she had chewed on a towel that I had thrown out a few days ago. It was probably about as big as a quarter, or just slightly larger and about 4-6 quarters tall in height. Ever since that came up, the difference in her personality compared to last night has been night and day. She's not acting lethargic or like she doesn't feel well. I just fed her, but only gave her about half of what she normally gets for breakfast and will give her the other half in a couple of hours if she manages to keep this down. **Hopefully** that was all it was.

    Most likely that is exactly what was making her sick. Good thing that it came out.
    In most definedly agree with Davidh and others here with the water. Always have fresh water available, like in this case too I'm sure that with no water the piece would of just got stuck in her throat.

    oh I just read the previous post, I don't know how I missed it. I'm glad Ellie was able to pass the string, and is feling better today. Yeah Hopefully she passed everything. You might want to continue to check her poop for a couple of days, to see if any comes out the other end. My 2 guys cant have anything in their cage, no blankets, no towels, no pillows, of any kind, because they eat everything, and they also cant have any small toys, or any soft, or stuffed toys for the same reason. the only toys they can have are Kong toys, and Nylabones.

    So far, no more vomiting and Ellie has been acting like her normal self again. Hopefully we're in the clear. Thanks everyone!

    Glad to hear Ellie is doing better the blockage situation is not a fun one, I think most of us have gone through it at this point as well. If you do end up having to take her to the vet for an x-ray make sure they do the barium one because if it is a soft tissue blockage (like fabric, sock, cloth) it will not be easy to see with a regular xray. Hopefully it doesn't come to that, just keep and eye out and make sure she continues to normally. She may have a little lack of poop being that she didn't really digest anything for a day.

    Well Ellie finally decided to go and all I can say is WOW. Everything was looking great as far as it being formed and solid went until.............it wouldn't drop to the ground. So here's the ever so tiny Ellie prancing around with her back arched and a 4-5" "klingon" trailing her. So being the great bully dad that I am, I grab a couple of leaves, grab hold, and give her a hand. 8-10" (in addition to the 4-5" of klingon) of covered string and towel remnants later, we're hopefully done with this. I hope that I painted a vivid and lively picture for you guys.

    So glad to hear she passed it, it's scary when that happens. My Dozer has a thing for socks, and somehow he always finds them. He swallowed socks twice, one he threw up, the other he pooped out. It's crazy what these guys will eat, I just don't understand how they don't choke on it when they swallow stuff.
