Don't read this if you're eating or about too. It's a long story and it's gross.

Frasier has a fetish for fabric softener sheets. Before someone lectures me, yes of course I try to keep them out of his reach.

Friday I opened the laundry room door. I didn't know he was behind me. He shot in there like a missle. Grabbed one and ran. I'm careful about chasing because sometimes he'll just swallow whatever is in his mouth if we chase. I remember Rachael's story about her friend who lost her dog this way.

He ran under the guestroom bed. I called him calmly. He came immediately out. I assumed he dropped it under the bed and closed the bedroom door with the intent of getting it out later. I went back when he was otherwise occupied and the sheet wasn't there. I just sorta thought, "hhmmm" and forgot about it.

Twenty-four hours later I'm in my own world, doing my Tai Chi. Hubby knows not to talk to me or bother me during that time. Out of the corner of my eye, I see my husband doing something to Frasier's butt and Frasier inches away from jumping out of his arms and crashing on the tile.

He swallowed the ENTIRE sheet!! :eek: Can you believe it?? The whole thing?? Hubby is bad at doing this. He wraps four papertowels around his hand to be sure he doesn't touch anything gross. Frasier goes nuts the whole time. I just grab and pull - gently of course.

Soooooo I start pulling.
Frasier :bootyshake: :shock: Me :pukeright: Hubby :silent:

It just kept coming and coming and coming! It came out long-ways which has got to be 5 or 7 inches. I just couldn't believe we got through this with no lasting effects or harm.

I have to be out of town for 4 days soon. So I explained to hubby that whatever gets on your hand WILL wash off. :argue: He asked what does he do if something doesn't pull out in case he had to do this alone. :?
I said if it's hung, don't force it, go to the vet.

It's just amazing what these little guys will swallow and get in to.

OMG - of all the weird tales (pun intended) about chis, I think this one takes the prize!! That is funny, and at the same time a little scary. Jasmine will grab things and take off and hide under the bed too. I have to be sooo careful about what is left on the floor, coffee table, etc. Last week she climbed from the sofa onto an end table, and was just getting ready to eat some of the potpourri I had in a dish there. Had to move the dish - LOL Glad he is O.K. though.

Not his mouth - other end. :booty:

I wouldn't have believed it if it hadn't happened before my eyes. He only had a few seconds to swallow it. He must have balled it up and gulped, then it straightened out as it passed through him.

It's not possible to guarantee that he'll never have access to another fabric softener sheet. I'm just going to get rid of them and start using the liquid kind in the washer.

Wow I can't beleive it came out all in one piece let alone went in all in one piece. It's amazing how Seiah will eat anything on the ground, but is so picky about his actual food.

At work we have chocolates for people to take as they please. Well one of the ladies ate really messy and dropped chocolate all over the floor. I didn't realize I missed a piece, and the next day I saw Seiah sniffing at it. Luckily, I saw it in time and he wasn't able to get it. But was that a scare :eek: .

BTW, what happened to Rachael's dog? Everytime I see Seiah pick up something, and I try to get it out, its gone.

The dog I referred to in this thread wasn't Rachael's dog. It was her friend's dog. There was a piece of hard candy on the floor and the little dog found it. The lady tried to get it away from him - I think she yelled or chased - and the dog swallowed it and choked to death. :( Correct me Rachael if I told that wrong.

So everytime something is in Frasier's mouth, I think of that story and try not to do anything to make him swallow quickly.

You are absolutely correct. My friend yelled to get her dog to drop the candy but he got scared, tried to swallow it and it caught in his throat. I feel sick to my stomach every time I think of that story but it should be a lesson for us all.
