My wife sews (a lot!) and every now and then one of the cats will try to
eat some thread. One day we heard one of them making strange noises at
the litterbox. It turns out the cat had eaten a long thread, and it was
making its way out. We had to pull it out (slowly, to avoid internal
injuries to the cat and external injuries to us). There was at least a
foot of thread in there.
