An X-Ray taken from Roxy, an 11-month-old cat from King's Heath Birmingham, shows where a ball of string became lodged in her stomach after chewing her favourite toy.
The Siamese cat was rushed to YourVets Wythall Clinic near her home, after her owner discovered her choking on pieces of string from her favourite toy.
Roxy was immediately operated on by two surgeons in a complex procedure to remove all of string.
She is now completely back to normal and vets have urged that owners must supervise their pets at all times when playing with toys of any kind.
Police have found a man's body in a van parked in a pub car park in Wythall in Bromsgrove.
Officers were called to the White Swan on Alcester Road just after 9am on Saturday morning after a member of the public made the discovery.
The dead man has been identified as Harbans Agimal who went missing from his home in Kings Heath in Birmingham on Thursday 12 June.
His death is not being treated as suspicious and Mr Agimal’s family have been informed.
Detective Sergeant Matt Stone, leading the search for Mr Agimal, said:
We would like to thank everyone who assisted in spreading the appeal for help to find Mr Agimal. Our sympathies are now with his family at this tragic time.”
The family of man from Birmingham, who is believed to have disappeared after leaving his home and posting his wallet through the letterbox, say he has never gone missing like this before.
Police are appealing for sightings of 54-year-old Harbans Agimal or his van which has a dent in the front wing.
Birmingham South Police Missing People Co-ordinator, PC Steven Carlin, said:
“His family say he’s never gone missing like this before so understandably they are worried about his state of mind and desperately want to know he’s OK.
“If anyone believes they may have seen the vehicle I’d urge them to contact me as soon as possible.”
