Tampa, Florida -- A cat knocked 27 hair bands on the ground - and they were promptly eaten by a 2-year-old Boston terrier!
Cadence the cat and Lucy the Boston terrier both live the the Hearn's home in Tampa. One day Cadence knocked a bunch of hair band to the ground, 27 to be exact, and Lucy ate them.
After a day of vomiting and low spirits, the Hearns took Lucy to the vet and an X-ray revealed the undigested hair bands in her stomach.
Lucy was referred to BluePearl Veterinary Partners, a specialty and emergency hospital for pets. BluePearl is know for previous animal rescues such as treating a severely neglected dog named Freedom and removing a hairball from Ty the tiger.
BluePearl is using this incident to remind pet owners to make sure their home is pet-proofed for all the pets they have.
Lucy is expected to make a full recovery after her hour-and-a-half long surgery. She is currently planning her revenge against Cadence the cat.
