I thought that Rowdy swallowed a paper clip this summer - I'm not sure whether or not he did - but when I called the vet, he said to give him about a 1/2 teaspoon of mineral oil on his food, every time he ate and also to feed him bread. He was 4 1/2 months old at the time. The vet said the paper clip would take 2-3 days to come out and so I didn't check his poop till the second day. I never found the paper clip - but later he swallowed a tiny little rubber band and it came out in about 12 hours - so I may have missed the paper clip or maybe he never swallowed it. Anyway, the vet said to watch him closely for signs of pain so it if was "stuck" he could see him right away.

Rowdy worries me to death too because he grabs everything that drops on the floor and then he runs. Our house looks just like it would if we had a toddler - NOTHING is on the floor.
