un-did and ate a wire-cored twist tie
that had been holding open a gate.

Wednesday morning Electra was off her food and subdued. The X-ray was shot Wednesday at noon. The vet says the twist tie passed the difficult and dangerous part of her and was a couple inches from popping out. She has been behaving normally since Wednesday night which is to say Wild Kitty all morning, followed by bath, nap, more Wild Kitty and playing mysterious games with the dog. Appetite and box habits are normal.
Yet no twist tie has appeared in her litterbox and I have looked, carefully, for it. There is neither blood nor pus in there, either. It's as though the wire disappeared leaving a perfectly healthy, if manic, kitten.
She's getting another X-ray this coming Wednesday unless we get the tie back, but the question is how she is managing to be so energetic and flexible if the wire is still in there? We have a good vet and she's as surprised as we are.
