Thumb Tacs for Dinner?

This sweet face has been worrying me.

Carmine flicked a thumb tac off the wall last night. We must have looked like quite a pair, Dave and I chasing him around to get the thumb tac out of his mouth before he swallowed it.
This is the second time he's tried to swallow one. When we found out he didn't have it in his mouth, I took all the thumb tacs off the wall. He scared me a lot.
I believe I will be going around, picking up all small, potentially dangerous objects in his reach. I suggest every cat owner do the same, especially if your cat likes to eat everything he can, like Carmine does.


  1. Ooh, that's scary! Mom's always watching out for stuff like bread twist ties, because Silky likes to take off with those.

  2. Bonnie an I are curious, but cautious. Mom is always usin us as an excuse to get the boy to pick up Lego's, but Lego's are FUN! I mite bite one a little, but I'd rather eat Temtations than Lego's.
