Do You Know Where All Your Beading Needles Are?

Do You Know Where
All Your Beading Needles Are?

Cleo is a cat owned by one of our customers. She has a propensity, or is it proclivity, or is it pronounced desire for, or something which attracts her to beading needles. It turns out that cats especially are attracted to things like beading needles….And they swallow them.

I’m sure they have the mechanical physics wrong in their brains — after all, cats aren’t specifically trained in physics. Because instead of passing all the way through their digestive systems — like other things they eat that they are not supposed to — beading needles pass through the esophageal walls, and lodge into other organs, muscles and bones.

Above is one of Cleo’s recent X-rays. You can see the needle on the left side of the image, near her heart.

So, do you know where all your beading needles are today? Be sure to keep them out of sight of your cat.
