June Buggie Rants About…… Dental Floss?

MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say.

I am being denied my right of autonomy. I must protest!

I am so ticked off! It seems Jen has changed the kind of dental floss she uses. Instead of using the regular, cool kind that she wrapped around her fingers, she is now using something called Plackers. It’s a little plastic stick with the floss connected to it.

So, ya think that by changing the way you floss, you’ll keep me out of the trash?

Why is this such a big deal?

Hey, dental floss is huge in this household. We have played Dental Floss Hide and Seek with Jen for years! We dug it out of the trash can, so she bought a can with a lid. We figured out how to knock the lid off, so she put the can inside the vanity. Like she doesn’t think we can open the vanity too! * rolls eyes*

But now she’s using these Plackers flossing thingies, and the party’s over.

Oh sure! SHE says it’s because it’s dangerous for cats to eat floss, or string, or yarn, or anything like that. It seems there’s the chance it can cause kitties problems if eaten, including perforation of the intestine or blockages. Hey, I got nine lives! I can deal with it!

What is this? How can I get my pica groove on chewing on that little bit of string?

Apparently though, she can’t. So it’s bye-bye long strands of dental floss and hello funny little plastic thingie.

The good news is, this makes a pretty decent cat toy too. What? What do you mean you’re cutting the floss part off first? Hiiissssssss!!!!!

  1. Sorry June Buggie, but your Mom is right Floss is bad for Cats and Dogs digestion!.. Sorry to be a party poopper!
    Enjoy the rest of the week though and hope you find some other toys to play with ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Poor June Buggie. Why do you want to ruin all his fun?

    We’ve started using the Reach flossers. You keep the handle but just replace the small piece of floss. It means you are throwing away less plastic.

  3. Hai June Buggie! *waving* Oh poor June Buggie…..sorry that you can’t enjoy those dental fross anymore but what Jen did is for you and your fur family, so I agree with Jen! *Whispers* our mom didn’t know that the fross could be dangerous for me and my cat brofurs….thanks for letting us know!

    1. Oh yes! Strings, yarn, tinsel, and the like can be very dangerous. A cat will chew on it and swallow it. The string can cause an internal puncture or can wrap around the tongue or another organ and get stuck. It’s very bad!

  4. Isaiah got into the dental floss and thank goodness is went through and came out. I now have a covered trash can in the bathroom with a cover that if you step on it, it opens. I disconnected the step and now in order to open the cover you have use your hands. Now, if only I could stop him from shredding the sisal rope on the cat tree……..

  5. I am not sure which was funnier the article or the disclaimer…great job and a really important message too…tinsel on the tree at Christmas is another big concern…

      1. Federal rules require you to note if you’re being paid for a post. I won’t want someone to try to give me trouble by claiming I didn’t report I was paid for this post- because I wasn’t.

  6. Aw, poor babies, Jen took away your fun. Meanie! But she loves you, so cut her some slack. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thankfully, Callie and Shadow don’t bother with the garbage any more; and Ducky’s more interested in destroying her Kong Wubbas.

    1. Garbage-tipping is great fun at our house. The garbage cans are secured now. The kitchen garbage can is inside the pantry, and on at least two occasions Graybie Baby has spent the day locked inside because he snuck in before Jen left for work.

  7. Those darn humans, always trying to spoil our fun:( But you know, Junie,that floss could really cause you some problems in your tummy tum tum.
