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.
