The Almost Perils of Yarn

The other night, I had gotten into bed to read for awhile.  We let Koko in at night to sleep and she sleeps at the foot of the bed.  I heard her chewing on something.  And chewing.  And chewing.  It just kept going; so I got up to check out what was going on.  She had some yarn in her mouth.  I had no idea she liked to eat yarn.  She had not done it in the past.  I'd let a ball of cotton yarn (connected to my in progress knit-a-long dishcloth) fall to the floor and she'd found it.

So this is the ewww part.  I started pulling on the yarn to get it out of her mouth.  I pulled and I pulled and I pulled and I pulled.  The yarn just kept coming in one long continous slimy strand.  I think I pulled about 3 feet of yarn out that she'd swallowed.  Then I followed the string of yarn all the way back through the living room, through the dining room, around the corner in the kitchen, back to my computer table.  I guess she was going to eat that entire ball of yarn.

Silly Koko.  It could have been bad I would imagine had she actually swallowed all that.
