It's a relatively smallish ear plug, i guess. they all seem the same size to me though. a few weeks ago he went nuts with 2 earplugs, but he was keeping it away from his kitten brother so he ran away with it. my girlfriend looked for it because she was worried, but I honestly didn't think much of it because I didn't think he'd eat it. Now that you mention it, I also think it's the ear wax he's attracted to. You should've seen him wind around my leg after he swallowed it, begging me to give him another one!! it's like a treat for him!! Anyway, I watched him play with this one, and he chewed on it for a bit, and then it was gone and he was licking his chops, so he definitely swallowed it. i wonder if they have ear-wax flavored cat food?
anyway, this happened about 2 hours ago, so I'll have to wait. How do I know if he's "Stopped up"? I've fed him pumpkin and food in pumpkin broth (Solstice), so I hope that'll help him poop it out more freely. My girlfriend is panicking, thinking it'll "plug" him up and she's wanting to take him to the vet for whatever reason. I'm taking more of the let's wait and see attitude.
