This is so bad. Poor cat. Do this happen to the tigers in the wildness? He need to eat some grass like my kitten to get tummy ached empty.

They should knit it into sweaters for the Syracuse University cheerleaders. Or maybe DePauw. Or Auburn. Or Grambling. Or Princeton. Or Clemson.

I guess if you're too stupid to notice something before it gets to the size of a basketball, you are in the wrong line of work. Things can be done that don't require surgery, if someone doesn't have their thumb up their ass and is only a little observant. I truly feel sorry for animals that have to suffer because their keepers are so ignorant. Maybe if the keepers had something the size of a basketball in their body, they might be a little more responsible.
