CAT POOP! WTH!? I am so incredibly grossed out right now! The sink was spraying water underneath into the cabinet, my daughter fed an entire package of fish food to the fish and then I looked over and saw my almost 1year old crawling around with something in his mouth. The floors are pretty darn clean but figured he had found a stray Cheerio or something....NOPE!
So, does anyone know if I need to call the ped or anything? It looked like he had had it in his mouth enough to let it 'melt' (OMG! ) so he probably swallowed some actual poop and maybe a few pieces of our corn-cob based clumping litter too. I wiped his mouth out with a washcloth that had Listerine in it, brushed his teeth and made him drink some water. YUCK! I had *just* scooped the cat box this afternoon and swept the floor in that room. Of course the moment a bunch of other things go wrong (the sink leaking, dd probably killing all our fish) he decides to eat CAT TURDS!? :Puke
I am only laughing because this happend to me about a month ago, so it's nice to know I am not alone! I have no idea where my DS got the poop, because he wasn't anywhere near the litter box, but he found some anyway. Since my cats never go outside and had seen the vet in the past year, I just hosed him down, scrubbed his mouth as best I could and kept an eye on him. He was fine. And I am sure your litte guy will be also.
I feel your pain . . . this morning, my boy proudly handed my husband a handful of cat turds. We have a maine coon that sometimes gets a few danglers stuck in her fur and I guess my boy found them before I did. My boy was so pleased with himself too, like he was handing over the keys to a Ferrari.
Thank goodness my cats have both tested negative for toxoplasmosis.
