Oh my :"( sorry for the late response. Its sad to say that I haven't been really observant due to college. Everyone seems to be okay for now though. Everyone's eating, sleeping, and pooping.Although I know that cats are really good at hiding their illnesses. I am now more scared though due to the information you have given. Thank you for explaining it to me! It helped me understand it better! I really do want to talk to a vet about this but we really don't have money or savings. X-rays costs so much as well, and we aren't even sure who ate it. I have no idea what to do. I really can't go through another surrendering a cat experience..
I believe it's very easy to say.......there's simply no way that the battery shown in your post #751 could possibly pass through a cat's digestive tract. You need to have your Vet give their opinion on this, however.
Have a look,,,,,
"...The small intestine evolved to transport liquidy contents, not solid objects. The chyme delivered into the small intestine from the stomach is liquidy, not solid....solid objects do not flow along well. They are stiff and unyielding and the small intestine consists of many twists and turns. Trying to inch too large a solid object along that path is like trying to get a hefty piece of furniture around a tight corner or wrestled down a narrow hallway. The small intestine is flexible and expandable and it works hard at its job but still, it was designed for chyme, not hefty solid objects...."felineconstipation.org - Gut [my emphasis]
I would encourage you to speak with Vet, show the actual battery for size and rely on their opinion. As Sarthur2 said, an xray will show whether/not it's in there.
I'm sure I would rather know before a blockage occurred........and, I think a solution then would be less painful - and, certainly for my bank account.
