had an incident yesterday !! i dont usually let my little madam keep the ball after we've been playing it goes in the drawer, anyway this time i left her with it, behind me on the floor while i was at computer, i glanced round and she was chewing the outer fluff, so ok i thought i will do a swap in a moment when i turned back she had literally eaten half the ball it was only a minute, on inspection it appeared to be made of some kind of rubber but kind of crumbly. so kept an eye on her all fine, had her morning meal all fine, three hours later she puked the lot back up. had a sleep then all fine. the rest of the day passed without event and everything has returned to normal (normal poo this morning) so thankfully all is well but blimey that scared me !! lesson learnt on my part.
